All personal work begins with a free 20-minute telephone consultation, either when you first call or at a time we then arrange. This is to screen each other as appropriate for meeting our personal and/or professional goals. I will clarify that I do not take insurance, and do not monitor or prescribe medications. My services are not intended to replace medical care or psychotherapy.
Your first appointment will then be a 90-minute intake session for individuals, or a 2-hour intake for couples. The intake forms can be sent to you via email to fill out ahead of time; you then simply print out at home, fill in by hand, and bring them with you to your intake appointment. (Mailing paper copy is available if needed.) After the initial intake session, it is totally up to you how frequently you want to session with me, and how long you would like each session to be (60 to 120 minutes, in increments of 15 minutes). This differs from many others’ policies. Sometimes it’s just not a good moment to “hold that thought”!
For couples, I am happy to work with you in a combination of individual and couple sessions, of your choosing; this also differs from many others. I do not “take sides”, but rather work with you both for clarity, communication and connection.

NEW MOM / DAD SPECIAL (babies under 1 year old)
First session: Half price! I have a very soft spot in my heart for people in this challenging phase of life.
Again, I am unable to take insurance, unfortunately. I am happy to provide you with statements to use on your Health Savings Accounts. Payment in cash or by check at the time of service is appreciated; I do not do billing. If you’d like to use a credit or debit card, you can do that via PayPal at time of service; please click here for details.
And again, I do not prescribe or monitor medications of any kind. If you are on medications or want to be, you will need to see another practitioner for that; however, I am happy to be your stress management consultant whether or not you are taking medications.
