Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Each therapist is unique and utilizes a different set of approaches to support you. Interview them first and see if it feels like a good fit for you.
Here are some suggestions:
Ask what is their treatment modality and what would that look like in a session
How long do they like to see clients on average for what you are seeking treatment for
Do they accept insurance
Would cash be a better option? Do they have specials or sliding scale?

What type of trainings, licensee's, or education do you have in this area?
What is your treatment method?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I use a gentle holistic approach to teaching people to heal from the inside out utilizing heart-centered hypnotherapy. People are drawn to Beach Rock Wellness when other more traditional modalities have not worked. I also offer combined treatment with a holistic life coach who utilizes homeopathics and flower essence.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
