FAQs

If you don’t see your question below, feel welcome to contact me.

Q: Tell me what working with you is like in your Thought Therapy practice.

My entire practice is centered around this concept:

When you think better, you live better.

A: Great question! My practice is pretty simple: We’ll meet three times over three months.

Session One: Story. We’ll hone in on your specific priority and get super-clear on what you want to change from where you are, right now. No child-hood revisiting, no re-hashing difficult moments from the past, we are entering in a practical and sacred space to create a bond, get YOUR STORY clear, and get clear on what you want out of your stuckness, fear, or the sensations you are feeling.  You will leave with an actionable plan that you, yourself design, and goals for the next months.

Session Two: Energy. We review the prior month, the successes and challenges, and reformulate the energy awareness and the spiritual changes and challenges with making the advances and changes you want. We can refocus, we can discuss, we can analyze and plan for the advancement and next steps. Sometimes what you might have thought you wanted will be re-focused or refined. It’s all up to you – you can rest assured you are professionally supported in a sacred manner through your process. We create and focus the energy you need.

Session Three: Serenity. This will be our last session. Over the previous two months, a lot of work has been done, and maybe some journaling or other self-care and self-discovery practices implemented. We’ll celebrate, recalibrate, and revision life going forward. This is a sacred space and time.

INTENSIVE SERVICE OPTION: We will meet twice a month over the three month period instead of once a month. This is a very limited service. The dives are deeper, the work to be done is more intensive, and the commitment to your own growth is required. This is an interview-only option, please use the contact form to inquire and I’ll schedule a call with you before proceeding. There is no guarantee of immediate availability and you may be wait-listed for this service.

Q:  Where and how do we meet?

A:  I meet with people privately and one-to-one over technology, phone, or in person at my office in Lakewood, WA.  We set the intention, clarify your goal, and you guide the entire process.

Q:  What can I expect?

A:  You can expect to be put at ease, guided through the painful moments, supported unconditionally and never be told what to think, be or do; and HEARD with validation.

Q:  How is a session different from a reading?

A:  Sometimes a reading (Tarot, Angel or Oracle) is a part of the session, and sometimes you might only want a reading. Either way, any conclusions drawn, plans made, or questions you have are answered in the time allotted. Tarot, Angel, or Oracle readings ARE counseling and coaching techniques in my practice.

Q:  Do you have “packages” available at a discount?

A:  I only offer the following:

  1. Standard three month, 3 visits.
  2. Intensive option which is by interview only, does not guarantee acceptance, and is very limited so there may be a wait list.
  3. Occasionally a tarot oracle wisdom reading. This is a one-time session and offered only when available. You may be put on a wait list. I have been a cartomancer since 1967.

Q:  Since you are an Advanced Holistic Nurse, do you take insurance?

A:  No, I am not paneled with any insurance companies and have no plans to be. If you use your FSA or HSA credit card, I will not offer refunds, medical or therapy coding or records. You are responsible for knowing your plan.

Q:  Can I take pictures of readings?

A:  Absolutely, yes. I also keep tissues for those tender moments, and pens and paper so clients can make their notes to take with them.

Q:  Is there a waiting space for my significant other or children at your office?

A:  No. The building I am in has no waiting spaces available, and no child care space. Please make other arrangements.

Q:  Do you do family counseling?

A:  No, I do not.

Q:  Do you see clients that are underage?

A:  No, I do not. I only see clients 21 years of age or older.

Q:  Do you counsel couples?

A:  I do not provide couples therapy or counseling.

Q:  Do you provide Christian counseling?

A:  I do not. I do not affiliate with any religion at all. However, I do support the universal spirituality in which humankind acknowledges and moves in congruence with the Divine.

Q: Do you provide Spiritual counseling?

A.  Yes. I recognize the Divinity of the Human Spirit in every person, decision and action.

Q:  Are you a minister?

A:  Yes, I have been ordained since 2003 and I minister to the Human Spirit and the Universal Divine.  I have completed the Bard, Ovate and Druid levels in the ancient Druid tradition of Western Europe, and was ordained by the Universal Life Church Monastery in Seattle.

Q:  Do you provide “energy healing?”

A:  Yes: I invoke this and infuse our entire session with energy medicine.

I do not provide individual sessions for Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, or BARS in my office where reclining or partially disrobing is required.

Q: What is “cognitive behavior therapy?”

A:  It’s a psychological and therapeutic name for thought therapy. It is used by psychiatrists, psychologists, and advanced nurses as a scientifically-validated technique of counseling. I have held a national (U.S.) professional certification. We can identify dominant negative thinking patters and change them systematically. When we think better, we live better – that’s a fact.
