STEP 1 - Initial consultation $0
Lisa offers a complimentary 15-minute telephone consultation for all potential clients, and these consultations are scheduled online. If you don’t see a time or day that works for you, please let us know by emailing info@Heart-Presence.com so we can accommodate you the best we can! During your consultation you will discuss what your goals are or any issue you want to address. You may talk about the mind, hypnotherapy and how it works, how it applies to your particular goals and address questions you may have as well. At that time Lisa can offer recommendations for your work together. Feel free to contact us with any inquiries you may have. You will usually receive a response in 24-48 hours and email is always best. Email info@Heart-Presence.com.
STEP 2 - Schedule a Session
Sessions are scheduled online here.
Upon scheduling online you will be sent a confirmation email that contains a link to your secure video session. In-person sessions are currently available on Tuesdays in Lake Oswego, Oregon. For in-person, select a Tuesday when you schedule online. Select a Wednesday-Friday for video or telephone sessions.
STEP 3 - Pay & Fill Out forms
Pay online here. Payments are made in advance for video sessions, and can be paid in advance or at the onset of an in-person session. If you pay for multiple sessions upfront, then we recommend that you schedule your sessions in advance as well.
If you are a new client, please fill out the required online forms at least 2 business days prior to your initial scheduled consultation and/or session.
Please Note: Our online scheduling system will automatically reschedule or cancel your scheduled appointment if payment and forms are not received 2 business days in advance of your scheduled session. If you are not able to complete the online intake forms at least 2 business days prior to your session, please let us know so that we can make other arrangements and get you taken care of.
STEP 4 - SESSION Logistics
Wear comfortable, loose clothing.
Please minimize caffeine and beverages prior to your session.
For video sessions, we will meet online at the secure video site. Find a quiet, comfortable location where you can have privacy and be undisturbed for the duration of our time together. Click on the link that was in your confirmation email.
Headphones are required for video sessions in order to minimize sound distractions.
For in-person sessions, we will meet at Wise Counsel & Comfort at 14511 Westlake Drive, Lake Oswego, Oregon.
Sessions are 75-90 minutes. If necessary, more time is allotted for initial sessions so we can cover intake forms and relevant information. Children and teens require less time.
Looking forward to connecting with you and wishing you health and well-being!
