This is my preferred method of payment. Unfortunately, personal checks cannot be accepted at this time.

Subscription Payments  -   Users signing up for recurring subscriptions will have their payments billed automatically through this website via PayPal. Billing will continue until the subscription is canceled by the user (or at the user's request).

Payment for remote/distance sessions - Prepayment is required, And can be made via PayPal (you will receive a payment link via email or text).

Making things Affordable- I want to be sure everyone who needs access to this kind of healing has access to it.  If you find that you are hesitant to book due to cost, please reach out to me and we can discuss some options.  I do not want anyone to go without because of financial reasons.  There are accommodations or alterations that can be made on a case by case basis.  **Like anything though, if this becomes something that is abused or taken advantage of in a negative way, I will unfortunately not be inclined to continue this policy.**
