A few questions I get quite often.
How does a One-n-One work?
This is what others refer to “coaching” but I think of it as a conversation with your wisest bestie. I am not an MD or an MFT and I don’t have any certificates, I am offering my own personal experience and insight. A One-on-One is like a concentrated conversation focused on the issues that are challenging you. I’ll listen, ask questions and give you some initial feedback as we chat. After each One-On-One I send you a password protected link with a reading list plus a set of Marching Orders in the form of a pdf or podcast (whichever helps you learn, best). The Marching Orders contain a synthesis of our chat plus some custom tools to help you make the most positive change. Think of it like a prescription for following your highest self.
We can talk via Skype or FaceTime – if you have another platform you’d like to chat on, just ask. Once you purchase a plan, I'll reach out to you to schedule our first chat and then I’ll Skype you at the appointed time.
Do you offer refunds?
No, because this is my personal time and I don’t have a lot of it, so if you’re unsure, I would suggest listening to a few episodes of Help Me Be Me to make sure my style appeals to you. What you hear on Help Me Be Me is pretty much the person you’ll get. I’m honest, direct and I take your problems to heart. I will talk to you like I talk to a bestie or even – myself.
What topics do you cover?
I specialize in healing from break-ups, overcoming personal growth challenges, understanding yourself and others in relationships, growing your confidence and aligning yourself with what you want in career/life. That said, I am willing to help you on another topic, if I can – safely. I am not a therapist therefore I do not do work around anything that might trigger you or compromise your emotional balance. That's not because I don’t care, but because I care deeply and I don’t want to threaten your safety. If you’re struggling with severe and painful emotional issues, please call your local emergency services and/or seek out the help of a local professional. There’s no substitute for getting the right help and the money is worth it! If you’re still unsure if your situation is the right one, just ask me via email and I’ll let you know if I can be of service.
Why do you do this?
I love people and I believe change seems a lot harder than it really is – most of the time you’re looking in the wrong place and that’s why a challenge can feel insurmountable. Once I understood why I was stuck, I was free of my issues – and it’s the greatest understanding I ever got. I want to pass that along to you – because hopelessness is just about the worst thing you can ever feel. Don’t give up on yourself.
Do you take insurance?
No, I am not a medical professional and I do not accept insurance. I accept credit card payments via Stripe and transfers via Paypal, Venmo, and Square Cash.
What's your cancellation policy?
I ask that you give me at least 12 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule a session. If you do not give me enough advanced notice, I count it as a "no show" - in other words, you forfeit the sesh.
Do I have to use all my One-On-One's within a specific time period?
Your plan exists for when you need help the most so you have a full year to use your purchased One-On-One’s. If you get a lot out of the first sesh and you want to hold onto your next two, no problemo. Just reach out when you’re ready to schedule your next One-On-One and we will book your next sesh.
If I purchase a specific plan, can I change my remaining sessions to a different plan, later?
Yep. I’m flexible when it comes to what I love to do, so if you want to work on a Personal Growth Spurt instead of an Ouch My Heart, just let me know.
