How long is the complimentary consultation?
Our initial consultation will be over the phone and will take approximately 30 minutes.
How quickly can I get started?
After our phone consultation you will need to fill out a series of forms that I will provide. Once the forms are complete, we can start right away!
I’m not sure I’m physically capable of going on long hikes. Is this for me?
I work with people of all levels of fitness abilities and will tailor the outdoor setting and activity to your comfort level. I do have outdoor routes that are wheelchair accessible.
How many sessions do you recommend for individuals? What about for couples?
The Makaranda Method is comprised of ten, 1-hr sessions. I recommend the same number of sessions for couples and individuals. After ten sessions we will assess and more sessions if needed.
Can we do longer than one hour session?
Yes! We can do this on a case by case basis for an agreed upon rate.
How is payment handled? Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept any insurance. For payment I accept cash or local checks. Payment with credit card is available with an additional 4.7% to cover processing fees. Also, when you sign up for The Method, you will be charged all at once at our first session, unless we personally discuss another option.
What happens if the weather is bad?
We still have sessions outside! The weather can bring up a lot of content for us to work through that traditional therapy may not. We can use the elements in nature to help identify what you are experiencing internally. This is technically “acute stress training.” So, what does that mean? Acute stress training is when we intentionally put ourselves in mildly stressful environments so we train our bodies to deal with stress more effectively. It’s like a natural antibiotic.

What if I want to schedule a session indoors due to illness or other personal reasons?
If you are sick, your body is speaking to you, and rest comes first. If we decide not to do a session outdoors, there are other options we can discuss. However, it is important to note that NATURE is a pillar of The Makaranda Method because it provides a new opening in our self exploration.
What is your cancelation policy?
I require 24-hours in advance to change or cancel a session, otherwise you will be billed in full.
What is your pricing structure?
