Payment Policy/Billing/Services

Please note that there may be certain services that we are unable to accept and must cancel. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or cancel any service for any reason. For your convenience, you will not be charged until your payment method is authorized, the order information is verified for accuracy and the service has been performed. Some situations that may result in your session being canceled including;

  •  If the client or student is not engaging in the process, or the expectations are not realistic with the client’s/student’s level of motivation or readiness to receive support and act on it.
  • Regular participation is essential to progress. Therefore, an 80% attendance rate for both is required. I reserve the right to terminate services for any client falling below that percentage. Holidays on which I am not working and cancellations made by me do not count against your attendance rate.

   Additional Billing and payment information is listed below:


  • Coaching rates are per 60-minute session and rates vary based on learning need and session location. The only possible additional fees would be for materials such as curricular books or items needed to support the client’s learning. If other materials are needed (such as organizing materials, textbooks, or learning materials) for the coaching process, client’s are expected to provide them.


  • Payment is due at time of service per session (via check). You will receive a monthly e- mailed invoice. I do not bill insurance so please check with your insurance company regarding coverage and policy. Please note, coaching is not typically covered by insurance companies.
