Before your session

How do I become a client?

The first step is to schedule a free consultation call. I do this call with all potential new clients. We use the call to get clear on what changes you are wanting to make, answer your questions, and discern if it would be a good fit to work together.

How many sessions will I need?

It depends. Most people get the change they want in 3 to 6 sessions. Each session is its own change piece. Often we need to make several small changes in order to get the bigger change we want.

People often come back for more sessions to make additional changes in other life areas.

How frequently should I have sessions?

The standard timing is to space sessions at least 4 weeks apart. This gives the change work done in the session time to integrate.

What is the flow of a session like?

Sessions mostly look like a conversation. Together we will explore the change you would like to make, work to reveal the patterning behind it, and then revise the patterning to support the new change.

What is the difference between phone/skype and face-to-face sessions?

There is not much difference. Both types of sessions are equally effective. Both sessions sometimes involve simple movement based exercises. Face-to-face sessions sometimes involve light touch on the shoulder or arm.

Are sessions confidential?

Yes. In order to create a safe space, all sessions are kept confidential.

At times I may consult with other professionals (colleagues, teachers, professional supervisor) about the general details of a session, leaving all personally identifying information out. This is done to grow my skill as a practitioner and better serve you as my client.

Logistics & Policies

What if I am late to an appointment?

While it’s best to plan enough time to arrive at your appointment unhurried, if you realize you are going to be late, please don’t rush, and txt or call to let me know. It’s better to arrive late and ready to dive into the session than stressed out from rushing.
 When you arrive we’ll fit as much of your session into the remaining time as possible. Regular session fee applies.

Should I arrive early?

I do not have a waiting room, so please do your best to arrive on time. If you arrive early, please wait until your scheduled appointment time to knock or ring the bell. You are welcome to send me a text to let me know you’ve arrived early and I’ll see you in as soon as I can.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule my appointment?

If you find that you can’t make your appointment, please let me know as soon as possible. If you are cancelling within 24 hours of your appointment, calling or texting works best; earlier cancellations reach me best by email.

I maintain a 24 hour cancellation policy: full payment is due for any missed sessions not cancelled with at least 24 hour notice.

What is parking like?

You are always welcome to park in the carport for your sessions.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, check, or credit card.

After your session

How should I take care of myself after a session?

Directly after the session you may feel strange or out of sorts. It’s best if you can schedule your session so that you don’t have anything immediately after to attend to. It’s nice to be able to walk around a bit outside before heading off to your next destination.

In the weeks after the session you may notice the session integrating or not. Sometimes a person’s system needs to “reboot” the way a computer sometimes does after a software update. This can look different for different people. You may notice intense emotions with no seeming cause.

Or you might not notice anything at all. The most elegant change happens when our systems don’t realize anything is different—when the change has happened but it feels as if “it’s always been this way.”

Is word of mouth important?

Yes, very much! As you enjoy the changes in your life from receiving this work, please talk about it with people in your life, including friends, family, and co-workers. Consider sharing with them the benefits from the sessions and how life has changed since having them.

Talk about NLP with the people in your life that you care about. So many people could use some help creating change in their lives, but many people have trouble asking for it or don’t even realize it’s a possibility. You can help them by letting them know what’s working for you and what your experiences are like.
