How does it work?

  • Each new client participates in an initial free 15 minute ‘meet & greet’. During this time we will discuss your situation and decide the best way forward.
  • Clients can choose from a range of appointment options depending on their needs.
  • Each session can be conducted by Skype or Zoom.
  • Meetings are scheduled usually every other week, or as often as needed.
  • Based on each session, strategies and a plan of action will be developed and followed up during consecutive sessions.
