How long will it take?
The answer depends on your unique needs. Some of my clients report finding a resolution to a dilemma in one session. Some experience significant healing in three sessions, while others have been returning for a decade for monthly or yearly “tune-ups”, or for help with a fresh crisis.
Overall, the tools clients gain help them to cope when old symptoms are triggered so that subsequent visits bring quicker relief.
I will work with you to reach your desired level of feeling and functioning. Once you have reached immediate goals of relief from distress, improvement in self-esteem, relationships and productivity, I remain available for future check-ins.
The following factors may determine the length of time you come for sessions on a regular basis:
- How long have you had this distress?
- Is it long term with historical roots, or an isolated, recent circumstance?
- How quickly do you tend to move, emotionally or psychologically?
- In what ways do you want to heal / grow / blossom / emerge / transform / expand?

Will I work with you if you are taking medication?
Yes. If you have a prescribing physician who is available to monitor and adjust your medication along the way, then you have chosen a highly effective combination of medication plus therapy.
Is my approach spiritual?
I do not bring a particular religious or spiritual view to my work. I will respectfully support your spiritual path if you wish to share it with me. I am open to learning about what works for you.
