fees & tips

My fee is $85.00 per session. **

Payment for services is due at the first session, if we meet in person, or prior to the session if we meet by phone. Clients generally pay me for a package of five sessions in advance. This is highly recommended, since it indicates that you are committed to working with yourself, though it is not required.

Don’t hesitate to contact me about sliding scale arrangements.

Learning how to slow down the discursive mind and create space is essential for creating insight into what needs changing. It is important to have instruction so that you have a technique to work with. Otherwise, it is easy to reinforce unhealthy habits of mind. The subject of “being mindful” will be woven throughout our work.

We will evaluate together what will be of benefit as we go along and proceed accordingly. It would be beneficial for you to be willing to make a 3 month commitment. The most valuable part of what happens in our process, happens in “relationship“. Clients often contact me on an as needed basis after our more in-depth initial work.

Suggestions for getting the most out of your sessions:

Take some quiet time for about 20 minutes before our scheduled sessions to allow your mind to settle.

Jot down some notes during the week as you think of of topics or situations that would be helpful to discuss.

Have a pen and paper to make notes of insights and reminders that are especially valuable for you.

Be prepared for your session with an idea/ideas of what you would like to discuss in our meeting.

Keep a journal during the week to help you be mindful and to provide guidelines for our discussions.

Relax and trust that wherever we begin, we will almost always end up talking about what is most important to you.

Remember: You are engaging my services to assist you in some way on your life journey. This is a co-creative venture. It is in working together in a creative relationship that wonderful unfoldings can happen. Keep positive and do your part. I would love to see you thrive….
