Hourly Rates and Policies
(in person and phone sessions)
Fees for EFT: My fees for private sessions are based on an hourly rate at $100 an hour. My 90 minute session is $150. See the Packaged Rate below for a discounted rate. My sessions include:
• An optional 15-minute chat before our first appointment. Otherwise we’ll communicate via e-mail.
• Free digital recordings of office and phone sessions
• I call you for phone sessions, saving you toll charges (within the Continental U.S.)
• I schedule appointments 1-3 weeks in advance. But I do keep a waiting list, in case an earlier time slot opens up. My appointment times are valuable and irreplaceable, so I do have a cancellation policy. If you need to reschedule a session, please let me know 48 hours in advance, in order to avoid being billed.
To encourage your continued growth and pursuit of happiness, I offer a discounted package:
Two- 90 minute sessions for $270 (a $30 savings) or three 60 minute sessions for $270 (a $30 savings). I recommend 90 minute sessions because you get the best results with a 90 minute session.
You can, of course, just pay as you go, one session at a time at the regular rate. If you prefer, you can decide if the package works best for you at the end of our first session.
I take VISA and Master Card, PayPal, checks and cash. I usually take down your credit card information at the end of the session.
Since my appointment times are valuable and irreplaceable, please let me know 48 hours or more ahead of time, if you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment.
Cancellations and reschedules that are made less than 48 hours before your appointment will be charged the full amount for the session.
For those who don’t live in the San Francisco Bay Area, phone sessions are a great option. You can work from the comfort of your home or office and do sessions in your jammies if you’d like. I’ve been doing phone sessions with people from all over the U.S. and Canada and find them to be just as effective as live sessions. I’ll send you instructions via e-mail and an Intake form before we start, as well as other supportive information. I make the call to you, (within the Continental U.S), saving you toll charges. Phone sessions are at the same rates as office visits.
Do you do sessions by phone, and how can EFT work by phone?
Yes, I do EFT by phone and, in fact, about 80% of my clients are by phone and from all over
the world. Actually, most accomplished EFT Practitioners work by phone as well, so the proximity to a practitioner should not really be a factor in making your selection. However, it is more to find a practitioner that is accomplished and resonates with you than one that is convenient.
If we decide to work together, I will e-mail you an intake form, so I can collect pertinent information about you and your issues before our call. You’re welcome to write more about your history as well, which will help increase our effectiveness together. I can also send you tapping points ahead of time, and, during the session, I’ll tell you exactly what to say and where to tap. After a few minutes, you won’t even notice that we are not face-to-face.
EFT is actually highly effective over the phone. When doing a phone session, I will call you (within the Continental U.S.), saving you long distance charges. Also, I’ll record the session for you and send you a link to listen to it anytime on your own. Let me know if you’d like to schedule a session, what times of day generally work for you, and what time zone you are in.
I live and work in the San Francisco Bay area (Marin) and schedule my sessions Monday – Wednesday. I start tapping sessions at 8 am PST and my last session starts at 3:30 pm. Let me know your preferences for times (i.e. mornings, early afternoons, etc.) and I’ll do my best to accommodate you. Generally, I book my appointments 2-3 weeks in advance, but I do keep a waiting list, in case a sooner time-slot becomes available.
Since I am in sessions all day, the best way to reach me is by e-mail.
If you would like to schedule a phone (or office) session with me, send me an e-mail or call me directly at: 415-456 8435 (9-5 PST).
Fees for EFT: Urgent, Same-day Rates
When possible, I may be able to provide same-day urgent service, billed in 30 minute increments at $50 per segment. Since my schedule is usually booked, I may have to juggle other obligations around to fit you in. If I’m free, I’ll take you right at the moment…but frankly that’s rare. However, I will do whatever is possible to see you or talk with you that day. After you’ve become established as a client I can also offer e-mail and phone support at the same rates, as long as I have your current credit card information on file.
My office hours are 8 am to 5 pm PST Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. You can always leave messages after hours at (415) 456-8435. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fees for EFT: Can you help me find a practitioner near me?
Finding the right practitioner for your needs is very important. Virtually all experienced practitioners do work by phone and get as good of results as a live session. So unless you feel very strongly about a face-to-face visit, I highly recommend you search for the best person for your needs, rather than someone who works near you. It’s far more important to find an accomplished practitioner, with whom you resonate, than to find someone who is convenient.
When you’re searching for a practitioner, invest some time on their website before calling them.
Often you can find a lot about them online. Here are some things to look for:
• How long has she or he been in practice – Look for 2 or more years’ experience as a coach or therapist.
• How did he or she learn EFT – Having watched the videos and read the manual is just not good enough?
• What is their success rate with EFT – It should be over 90%.
• How many individual clients have they worked with using EFT—It should at least be 100.
• What are his or her EFT credentials – the initials EFT-CC after their name is good, but EFT-ADV, is better. This signifies s/he as taken and passed a series of EFT tests.
Personally, I don’t think credentials such as a MS, LCSW, or PhD after someone’s name is nearly as important with EFT as their expertise in using EFT. After arming yourself with information about him or her, let your instincts tell you if you feel ‘right’ with this person. You should have rapport (or a connection) with someone for the best results. Trust your gut feeling.
Do you know someone who specializes in…?
This is a common question and a fair one. However, any practitioner worth their salt can deal with virtually any “tappable” issue. All of us can easily eradicate anger, frustration, grief, phobias, stress, anxiety, heartache and much more. However, for the more complex issues such as rape, trauma, addictions, abuse, serious illnesses, and weight issues, you’ll either want a more experienced practitioner, or someone that specializes in your problem.
Can you personally recommend a practitioner?
I can do better than that…I can recommend several great ones. Then you can choose the best one for you. I’ve listed several practitioners below, and I highly recommend them all. They all have a ton of EFT experience. They are all bright, competent, caring people who know EFT inside and out. Unless you’re dead set against doing EFT by phone don’t worry about their location. Finding the right person for your needs is by far more important than finding someone close to home.
Please visit their websites first to see which ones you “click” with the most, and to find answers to your questions such as “What are your fees?”
