- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?As a "prIvate pay" practitioner, I set my fees well below the standard rate for those who accept insurance in my field. After the initial consultation, I offer a generous sliding scale to individuals and families.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a Master's Degree from Northwestern University where I trained in Somatic Therapy, Interpersonal Communications, and the Expressive Arts. I studied Analytic Psychology with Dr. Leland H. Roloff, Professor Emeritus and former Pres. of Chicago's Analytic Psychology Club.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always had a passion for healing, creating, humor and the great reward of seeing both children and adults create joy for themselves. I began this work, did research and gained practical experience in the 1970's--before there were even programs identified as 'Expressive Arts or Somatic Therapy." Today, the convergence of science, spirituality, creativity and the coaching techniques long used in the arts are valued and sought after. When I started, they were considered "alternative."
