Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Queer & Questioning Friendly
LGBTQ individuals are almost 3 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 30-minute consultation. We can talk on the phone or meet in person at my office. A consultation is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the nature of Somatic Experiencing® sessions and to help you determine if SE® and I are a good fit for you.
An SE® session is $100 to $50.
My rate is low intentionally. I believe SE® can foster well-being, resilence 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 the top end of the session rate 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.
