What sort of dating/relationship support can you provide?
Sessions can cover the basics - online dating, messaging, red flags - or they can focus on issues that are impairing your ability to find a healthy and lasting connection. My coaching often involves supporting clients as they grapple with fear of abandonment; unhealthy relationship patterns; maladaptive attachment styles; low self-esteem; and the after-effects of abuse or neglect. I also support couples in developing better communication styles, navigating trauma/betrayal, and forming secure attachments, etc.
What sort of writing support can you provide?
Sessions focus on teaching you how to write better right now. You may work on short stories, essays, articles, poems, or another form of your choosing. You’ll submit writing on a regular basis according to achievable deadlines we’ll set up together, and I will read and provide editorial feedback and commentary. Then we’ll meet to discuss how the work may be improved. We’ll target specific craft issues you struggle with using the approach that is most appealing to you: assignments, writing exercises, readings, and/or good old-fashioned conversation.
Do you only work with people in your area?
Nope! I work with clients from all over, including abroad.
What if I just need help with a specific problem?
No problem! Just book one session, and we can hash out whatever issue you have.
How do I know if you can help me?
We can schedule a free 15 minute consultation. That way, you can ask me questions about how coaching works and get an idea of how exactly I can help you get the results you want.
Can you prescribe medications?
No. Since I'm a coach and not a therapist, I cannot treat or diagnose mental illness, nor can I subscribe medication.
Will sessions be recorded in any way?
No. All sessions notes are done in writing and kept in a secure and locked location.
Is there any kind of coach/client confidentiality like with therapists?
While coaches are not bound by HIPPA the way licensed medical professionals are, we feel bound to conduct ourselves as though we are. That means no client/patient relationships outside of coaching and no disclosure of information of any kind without your written permission. All clients have complete confidentiality.
Please be aware that coaches do follow Mandatory Reporting Laws. Should we feel that you are a risk to yourself or others, or if you disclose that someone else is being harmed, we are obligated to report this to proper authorities/professionals.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Nope. You can stop coaching at any time.
How much do you charge?
My rates are $100 an hour, but I do offer discounted packages.
Can I pay in installments?
Unfortunately, it's required that full payment be received at time of booking. Should you be having financial issues, don’t hesitate to contact me so we can discuss your options.
Can we conduct sessions by phone?
Sessions can be conducted by phone, Zoom, or Skype.
What is your refund policy?
All booking registrations are final. Should you be unable to make a session, you can reschedule at no extra cost as long as you notify me within 24 hours of your scheduled session. More than one rescheduling for the same session may result in termination of services. No refunds will be provided.
How do I reach you if I need to cancel or if I need a last-minute session?
All communications outside of sessions will be done via email only. You will be given a private email to use to reach me, and I promise to respond to your message within 2-3 hours after it's sent.
