COVID-19 update, Oct 1, 2020: Due to the response of our country to the pandemic since earlier this year, I’m greatly limiting in-person meetings at this time, with screening, masks and distance required. Virtual meetings are the safest option.
I’m focusing the next two months on a writing project, as I continue to reduce risk and wait this out.
For us to work together, you will need to be patient and follow my process.
The first step is an introductory consultation. My consultations are $120/hr.
If you want to schedule a consultation with me, please send a non-refundable $120 deposit via check or money order. Email me for the address or other payment info. My email address is email@example.com , or use the Contact form.
Once I receive your deposit, I will contact you to set up the appointment. I’m available days, evenings, weekends between 8am-9pm cst, and usually book a week or two out.
If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, the deposit is applied to that appointment date. If you give me enough notice so that I can schedule something else, I’ll apply your payment to a rescheduled date (see more policy details at the bottom of this page). I deposit checks the week of the appointment.
Once you are established and we have developed a rapport, cash at the time of the appointment is fine (and preferred). If you cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice, I will expect payment for that appointment before we schedule another one.
I love meeting in person, but for those of you not in the St. Louis, MO area, phone or Skype works as well.
The reason behind this policy:
This insures that you are serious about seeing me, and prevents my time from being wasted.
I receive multiple inquiries daily, and I accommodate as many of them as I can. I operate professionally and am reliable. I am an open-hearted woman. I am very accessible and public, which allows people to get to know me on an intimate level. I put it ALL out there.
When someone new contacts me, I don’t know them at all, but I take their request seriously and go out of my way to help them address whatever topics or issues they may have. When an appointment gets canceled on short notice, my time is wasted. Not only that, but this is what I do for a living, and I’m forgoing time with my loved ones and friends in order to meet with people I don’t know. I WANT to know you, so let’s make it happen!
I operate on mutual respect, which is a key quality for developing healthy relationships. Confidentiality is assured.
Deposit policy: Deposits can be transferred twice for reschedules, with a minimum 24 hours notice. Deposit can be applied to rescheduled date within 30 days of original appointment. If a new date is not made within 30 days, the deposit is forfeited and you will need to send a new deposit to initiate the booking process.
