FAQ

Our plans miscarry when they have no aim. If a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind. – Seneca

 

  • Prices? I have a sliding scale of $165.00-$250.00 for a 50 minute session. I turn it over to my clients to with integrity tell me where they should be in that range.
  • Payment? Payment is accepted in the form of cash, check or credit cards, and is expected at the time of the session, unless otherwise arranged.
  • Hours? Weekday daytime and evening sessions are available; Saturday mornings upon special arrangement.
  • Cancellation policy? 24-hour cancellation policy is needed to either cancel or change an appointment without penalty. Full price for the session will be charged with less than 24-hour notice. Likewise, if I do not show for a session your next session is complimentary.
  • Phone sessions? Yes, phone sessions are available for those in or outside the SF Bay Area. Great for new parents or people with time constraints. More details can be found here, or contact me.
  • Insurance? Insurance generally does not cover my services. I suggest to clients: a.) If it’s for coaching services, you can write it off as a business expense on your itemized taxes (with the advice of your tax accountant).
 b.) If it’s for hypnotherapy or counseling, you can do the same itemizing under medical (again with the advice of your tax accountant). Also, hypnotherapy is covered by certain insurance carriers.
 c.) If you have pre-tax monies set aside at work for health purposes, you can use that to cover your sessions. I will submit a statement.
  • Licenses? I do my counseling under a Minister‘s license; I am also a certified Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. I am not a licensed psychotherapist.
