A few questions I get quite often.
How does a One-on-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 overcoming personal growth challenges, understanding yourself and others in relationships, and growing your confidence and aligning yourself with what you want in career path. That said, I am willing to help you on another topic if I can. If you’re unsure, just ask and I’ll let you know if I can be of service. I do not cover challenges that are potentially dangerous to your health – not because I don’t care, but because I care deeply and I don’t want to potentially threaten your safety. If you’re struggling with severe and painful issues, please call your local emergency services and find the help of a professional. There’s no substitute for getting the right help and the money is worth it!
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.
