Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer & Questioning Friendly
LGBTQQ individuals can be almost three times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition like major depression or anxiety. Fear of coming out and being discriminated against for sexual orientation and gender identities, can lead to depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, thoughts of suicide and substance abuse.* I provide an aware, caring, and safe environment to meet these challenges.
Please email or call for a free 20-minute phone consultation. A consultation is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the nature of Somatic Experiencing® sessions and to help you assess your comfort level with me and SE®.
An SE® session is $150 to $75 payable by check or cash at time of service.
My rate is low intentionally. I believe SE® can foster well-being, resilience and vitality and help alleviate the suffering and affliction of disregulation from developmental trauma, abuse, accidents and accumulated cultural stresses of daily living. I wish everyone could have the opportunity to benefit from it, without finances being an obstacle. If you can pay more, please do.
Please call to discuss my sliding scale for people who are not working, are "under-employed," or have other impediments to paying within the scale.
Sessions last 50 minutes. We may run 10 minutes longer, if it seems prudent based on where we are in our session. I always will advise you of the time in such instances, so you have choice about our stopping point.
I understand that urgent and unexpected issues arise. I ask that you do your best to notify me. If you notify me via phone at least 24 hours in advance, there is no cancellation fee. If you are unable to keep your appointment and unable to give 24 hours notice, there is a $50 cancellation fee.
