how i work


my desire is to help as many people as possible. toward that vision, i offer a variety of services, both in group settings and one-on-one. i also use a variety of media options: online, zoom or phone, and, when the cultural climate permits, in person.


i post practices on facebook and, offer multiple weekly calls on a ‘pay what you can’ basis, open the ongoing  women’s sunday morning empathy writing circle for newcomers once a month and, when governmental regulations allow, host an in-person monthly Women’s Self-Empathy Fire Circle at my home. 


i offer three options for private sessions:

  • free consults—these are intro calls, conversations of up to 20 min to help folks discover whether or not they will benefit from my services.

  • 1-hour sessions—optimal for a client’s first session, for multiple issues, in-depth work with one issue and/or learning simply shamanic practices.

  • ½-hour sessions—great for check ins, ongoing accountability with practices, and/or working with one issue or learning one new practice.


all sessions are booked through as follows:

  • on the homepage menu, hover over Offerings

  • the word Services will appear under Offerings

  • click on Services

  • click on the session of your choice

  • book your time


generally, one hour sessions are available in person, on the Land, or via zoom or telephone. free consults and ½-hour sessions are held over the phone or via zoom. during the current international health crisis, all private sessions are being offered over the phone or via zoom.


while caring for the community, i am also responsible for my own needs. in the book ‘braiding sweetgrass,’ by indigenous botanist robin wall kimmerer, robin cites an experiment where a patch of sweetgrass is left alone and another is harvested according to indigenous ways. to my surprise, the patch that was left alone did not fare as well as the one with conscious human harvesting. humans are part of the ecosystem; when we take what we need—no more and no less, we contribute. as one who has tended to over-give, i am learning to “harvest,” so that the patch of sweetgrass that is simply shamanic can continue to flourish and provide for the community. receiving my full rate for private sessions helps me to continue to provide the community services.


some folks who would benefit from in-depth private work might have financial considerations, so i offer private sessions on a sliding scale: $80-$225 for hour sessions and $45-$125 for ½-hour sessions. i ask that you consider both our needs when requesting financial flexibility.


contributions can be made via check or PayPal and are due before the session begins.


for my own sanity and serenity, and to help me stay organized, i ask that all communications go through the site and that texting be limited to a line or two.


thank you for supporting simply shamanic.
