If you don’t see your question below, feel welcome to contact me.
Q: Tell me what working with you is like in your Coaching practice.
My entire practice is centered around this concept:
When you think better, you live better.
It starts with your own Story.
A: Great question! My practice is pretty simple, and you are completely in control. We’ll meet over technology using the private Zoom platform. If you don’t have it, it’s absolutely free, just grab it right here.
Our meetings are about 50 minutes in length, and are scheduled in advance.
I’ve found that three sessions over three months is a good foundation to clarify changes that might be helpful, identify a strategy and practice it, and then planning on making new life skills familiar in everyday living.
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: Readings use decks of cards (no scary images) with uplifting words and images to prompt the inner story and reveal patterns and thoughts that might be subconscious, and not in everyday awareness. Despite the “fortune telling” that some people engage in, Readings can point to likely outcomes, while also affirming that you are in charge of any changes you might want to consider.
Q: Do you have “packages” available at a discount?
A: Yes. You can purchase three sessions and tell me if you want them to be coaching or a Reading, or any combination. One popular designation is starting with a 20 minute reading and then having 30 minutes of coaching around decisions or issues that come up. Your choice.
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. I do not offer refunds, medical or therapy coding or records.
Q: Can I take pictures of readings?
A: Absolutely, yes. I encourage you to have paper, pen, or whatever objects you need to take notes.
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. I am a non-denominational Minister of the Human Spirit.
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.
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.
