Where is your office located?
My office is located in the Maynard Office Center in Cary, NC, just 15 minutes from downtown Raleigh. The office center has two entrances with a brown brick sign in between that reads “Maynard Office Center.” If you miss the first entrance, just take the next one. Building 1310 is situated towards the back left corner of the complex. I am in suite 103 and there’s a waiting room for you to relax in if you arrive early.
Do you work by phone or video chat?
Yes! Effective sessions can be experienced from the convenience of your own home or office. For phone or Skype sessions, please choose a time when you’ll have privacy so that you’ll be free of distractions and inhibitions.
I also recommend that you use a headset or speakerphone so that your body can fully relax. Good sound quality will be necessary for us to give each other our full attention. I’ll wait for your call unless you request that I call you.
What methods of payment do you accept?
I accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, Venmo, checks, and cash. (My PayPal link is PayPal.me/EmergeInnerLifeCoach.) Thank you for paying promptly.
Do you have a referral discount?
Yes! When you refer a new client to me, I’ll give them $25 off their first session or package and I’ll give you $25 off your next session or package. That’s a Win-Win-Win!
What is your cancellation policy?
Thank you for canceling within 24 hours of your appointment time. I charge a $35 fee for appointments not canceled within this time frame, unavoidable emergencies excepted.
Do you have a package refund policy?
Yes! If you can’t complete a package or simply decide that you don’t want to, I’ll refund you for the incomplete sessions.
What if I am experiencing PTSD/Child Traumatic Stress?
The American Psychiatric Association defines PTSD as “a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape or other violent personal assault.”
The National Child Trauma Stress Network clarifies that those “who suffer from child traumatic stress are those who have been exposed to one or more traumas over the course of their lives and develop reactions that persist and affect their daily lives after the events have ended.” They define a traumatic event as “a frightening, dangerous, or violent event that poses a threat to a child’s life or bodily integrity” or the witnessing of “a traumatic event that threatens the life or physical security of a loved one.”
Some extremely effective methods of treatment have recently emerged from the study of these disorders including Somatic Experiencing (SE) and NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM). So if you are experiencing PTSD or Child Trauma Stress (also called Developmental Trauma) I recommend you search for therapists that specialize in trauma in your area. Then research the modalities they offer and choose the one that resonates the most with you. (If you live in the Bay Area of California, I can personally recommend Rosen Method Bodywork.)
Who created your brand?
My brand was created by me and LA-based artist Hoshi Hana. We’re kindred spirits who met in the Mission District of San Francisco in 1990. It was a highly-creative time and place where we collaborated on many art projects, and we’ve been supporting each other’s creativity and personal growth ever since.
Hoshi is a VAI enthusiast. She’s actually the person who referred me to the creator of VAI, John Hoyle, so if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be doing the work I do today.
Hoshi says the same about me. Over the years I’ve helped her process the energetic blocks that prevented her from sharing her art with the world, and it’s been an honor to do so. Not only is Hoshi a fearless inner warrior, but over the years I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing her art transform from an expression of fragmentation and darkness to one of harmony and unity.
