Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
We can work in person or by telehealth. Most people prefer to do the preparation and integration sessions by zoom for convenience in scheduling. Typically, we do at least 2 preparation sessions where we discuss your goals and intentions in detail, review logistics for the journey, and practice grounding and centering techniques. The journey session is done in person and we have various options for where it takes place. The integration session occurs 24-72 hours after the journey. This is where we review your insights from the experience and develop a plan for how to apply those learnings to your life in order to achieve your goals.Intake Process:
Our initial consultation is done by zoom. I will ask you to complete some forms and questionnaires to determine it's a good fit. If you are already working with a prescriber, I will be glad to collaborate with them. If you need a referral to a prescriber, I can provide you with names of trusted colleagues.
