Session Format and Cost

**Note: During the coronavirus pandemic, my fees can be on a more generous sliding scale for those that cannot afford the usual sliding scale due to impacted work. Please inquire.**

Session cost:

60 minutes sliding scale is $95 – $125.

90 minutes, sliding scale is $140 – $180.

For breathwork, longer sessions are available, 2 hours sliding scale $190 – $240.

Special rate for ongoing weekly sessions at $85/hr and $125/90 min.

For established clients, support over the phone in between sessions to help with a block or crisis, 15 mins is $25, 30 minutes is $50.

Regarding SoulCentric Breathwork:

Packages of 10 sessions 10% off, two 15 minute get-unstuck and emotional support phone calls or texts are included. Not combined with weekly rate.

For breathwork, we prefer to do a minimum series of ten sessions, as somatic work requires repetition. Just as the blocks have been reinforced and ingrained in the body over the years, we want to support the body to unwind and create new neural pathways for a different way of being and feeling, and this takes time for our biology to integrate and change. The package of 10 provides a framework of commitment, as sometimes we can bounce up against things that are difficult, and this supports us to face them.

What can I expect in a session?

We check in to find out what is bothering you or not feeling right, what is going really well, what you would like to transform, or what you might want some more clarity around. I listen to what is present for you, and offer questions that help you dig deeper into yourself, and reflections. If you are open to creative expression or working with props, toys and the sandtray, this is welcome in our sessions, as is sharing art you have done on your own.
