The fee for this session is $190 and is often covered by your workplace insurance package.

In your introductory session, we’ll ask you questions to explore:

  • ‍Areas of self-criticism
  • Feelings of stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Past events or memories that still bother you
  • The root cause of the current issues you’re facing
  • Your life goals and what helps you to feel fulfilled
