Services & Fees
I have a commitment to making this work accessible to those of lower or fixed income, people who are often in marginalized groups, those who identify as BIPOC or LGTBQ+, those who are caregivers or those experiencing work transitions. For this reason I keep my hourly sessions affordable. To address the differing levels of economic resources, I am currently offering this work on a sliding fee scale of $40-120 USD per 60 minute session. I ask that you reflect on your particular life situation and decide what feels fair as an exchange in our work together. Payment may be sent through paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org or by check immediately following each session.
What you can expect:
Once you contact me via email or voice mail, we will schedule a brief complimentary phone call of 15-20 mins to determine what you are working with, what you would like to get out of our time together and to make sure we are a good fit for one another before we schedule our first session.
Although I am trained as a psychotherapist, this work is not psychotherapy.
Some of the services that I offer are considered outside of the scope of that profession, and therefore I am not licensed to practice psychotherapy in any state in the US. I work as a trauma informed mentor and coach, offering skill building and resiliency training of the nervous system. If you have questions about this, please ask me in our initial phone consultation.
I do however follow the same ethical guidelines of psychotherapy, and maintain complete confidentiality except in instances where there is risk of harm to self or others, and I work within the scope of practice for which I am trained. I will refer you to a licensed clinician if psychotherapy is a better fit for the issues you are bringing to our work together.
At this time I am currently working with clients via Zoom or by phone.
If you must cancel your appointment please contact me at least 24 hours in advance. This ensures I can see other clients in that session time slot and can plan accordingly. You will be responsible for the fee when cancellations are received less than 24 hours in advance unless there is an emergency.
