Since I work in a variety of different ways with people, we first work on setting the specific needs and goals you have for coming in. It could be doing deep psychological work, coaching you through and to a specific goal, spiritual counseling and guidance, or some combination of the above. However, the primary focus is in listening to what wants to emerge and focusing our session around that. It requires a certain trust in the process and sessions may have a different feel and purpose to them each time you come.
In the section below, I describe what a session can look like and answer some basic questions you might have.
How long is a session?
My therapy sessions are 1 ½ hours. My coaching and spiritual counseling sessions are 1 hour.
Where do sessions take place?
I work both in person and via Skype. For in person sessions, my office is located in north Boulder. For Skype clients, I am on Mountain Standard Time.
How often are your sessions?
It depends on the work that is being done. For somatic psychotherapy, we usually meet once per week. For coaching, we can meet once per once a week, twice a month, or once a month. You will have a good sense of how much time you’ll need between sessions. For spiritual counseling and guidance, we usually meet once per month.
How much does it cost?
My rates are $495/4 sessions (coaching), $100/hour (spiritual counseling) and $120/hour and a half (somatic psychotherapy) for those with financial means. For others, please contact me directly about sliding scale opportunities.
Preparing for a session
Be yourself. Listen to your deepest desires for coming in. If you will be working with me as a spiritual counselor, I will have you fill out a short form describing your life, health and spiritual history.
Self-care after a session
Because things may move in a deep way during a session, the process will often continue for a few days afterward. So, it’s important to take extra time for self-care after the session. This often means resting and finding ways to hold and gently attend to your internal self so you can continue the momentum of your inner work. The internal feelings and experiences may be subtle, but they are often powerful and foundational. Care for them as you would a newborn child.
