What’s the free clarity call like?
The Clarity Call is like a two-way interview. I’ll get to know you, and you’ll get to know me. I’ll ask you questions to help me better understand your primary issues, concerns, and goals. And you can ask me any questions that will help you to decide if I’m the right coach for you.
What will our first session be like?
Our first session has two main goals:
1. ASSESS YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES
We will take some time to assess your current challenges and goals. From there, we’ll be able to determine what type of approach is right for you, what it’ll entail, and how it’ll fit into your day-to-day life. It’ll be important for you to take an active role in learning new skills and tools. I may provide you with series of actions to undertake before our next appointment. These may be things such as practicing a certain technique, or reading a specific book.
2. BUILD A RELATIONSHIP
I’ll ask you questions to help me better understand your primary issues and concerns, as well as your history in terms of other events in your life, family, childhood, and career.
You’re welcome to ask questions at any time. In order for our sessions to be successful, it is imperative we establish a relationship that is supportive and honest. In fact, it is the nature and the quality of our relationship that will determine your success. This ‘meeting of the minds’ is the most accurate predictor of a beneficial outcome to the hard work you put in towards your happiness.
Is our work together confidential?
Yes. As a general rule, all sessions are confidential and anything you discuss with me will remain between the two of us unless you request otherwise.
There are three public safety exceptions to this rule, however, which require me to disclose pertinent information from the session to authorities if any of the following are true:
Suspected abuse of a child, dependent adult, or an elder, or if I’m made aware of domestic abuse
A suspicion that an individual has caused, or is threatening to cause bodily harm to another person
The client expresses intent to harm herself or himself, or expresses suicidal thoughts
Authorities may take additional action to ensure public safety.
What Forms of Payment do you accept?
I accept personal check, PayPal, Venmo, Zelle QuickPay, and more. If you prefer another method, just ask. Payment in full is preferred, but I do offer an Optional Payment Plan for the 12-Week Coaching Packages.
Do you bill insurance?
All services are self-pay.
