FAQ

 

 

I think my child would benefit from yoga-based services. Is there an age limit for who can participate in individual or group plans?

No. Children and adults of all ages can participate. I work with children as young as 3 years-old. Children can be worked with individually or under a group plan with their caregiver(s), or other children.


I'm new to yoga. what can I expect?

These services are flexible whether you're new to yoga or experienced. Yoga-based practices can be practiced sitting or standing, don't require a yoga mat, and can be taken with you anywhere and adapted to any environment.

My role will be to walk you through each of the practices in your plan and work with you through any concerns or barriers. Plans provide participants with handouts and audio recordings detailing the yoga-based practices rehearsed in session so that clients have the confidence to practice the skills outside of my office. I am also available by phone or email to answer any questions that arise between sessions.


Do I need to bring anything with me?

It is suggested, but not required, to bring the following:

  •  Comfortable clothing
  • A yoga mat or towel to practice on
  • Water

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, check and credit card payments.


I have a group of more than five participants. Is this a service you provide?

Yes. Please contact me directly to discuss the size of your group and the groups interest. Fees for groups larger than five depend on group size, length of session, and how many sessions the group is interested in.  


Are you certified to teach yoga-based practices?

Yes,  I am a certified ©LifeForce Yoga Practitioner, Level 1. I received my training and certification through the LifeForce Yoga Healing Institute in Tucson, Arizona. I’m currently working on completing my Level 2 certification.


I’m a professional interested in yoga-based services for myself. How do I proceed?

There are two ways to proceed depending on whether you are looking to receive yoga-based services as a consumer, wanting to learn more about integrating yoga-based services into your practice, or wanting to refer your client for yoga-based services.

As a consumer of services, you can contact me to consult about your identified need which you can schedule here. Or if you wish to schedule your first appointment, you can do that here.

As a professional wanting to receive more information on integrating yoga-based services into your practice, please visit my 1:1 Consultation page here to learn more about this process and dynamic.


I am already working with an outside professional. Will you coordinate care with them?

Yes. Coordination of care is extremely important. If you choose to authorize my communication with an outside professional or third party, I will require you to sign the Authorization for Use/Release of Mental Health Information form which you can download here.

Additionally, the written plans under individual plans and written objectives under group plans can be provided to your outside professional at your own discretion.


I’m already seeing a Therapist and I’m happy. If I do an individual or group plan with you, will you also be my Therapist?

No. Although I am a Licensed Psychotherapist, my role under individual and group plans would be to provide yoga-based skills only and not talk therapy. If a clinical concern were to arise, I would recommend that you discuss the concern with your Therapist as my role here is to provide coping skills and mood management practices.


What do I do in the event of an emergency?

If you're having a life-threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1 or go the nearest emergency room. You can also contact the Access Hotline, within the LA County area, at 1-800-854-7771.

If you have an emergency that is not life-threatening, please don't wait for me to return your call immediately. I make every effort to answer and return all phone calls and emails within 24-48 hours.
