There is an $89 cancellation fee to cover the time involved reprocessing any such requested refunds.

Sounding Board Services
There are some basic terms and conditions for managing our scheduled sounding board sessions so that our time together provides you with maximum benefits. Being in the moment, when we meet is our goal – no matter how elusive that can be.
- Clients call me.
- Punctuality is crucial.
- Each session is booked for 45 minutes.
- The clock begins at the time scheduled and ends after 45 minutes.
- If you are late for our session together the session will still end at the scheduled time.
- A session can be rescheduled only if requested 72 hours (3 days) before.
- No interruptions.
- No phone calls.
- No text messages.
- No emails.
- No one else present.
You need to be fully present for our time together.
If you are calling during your work day hours I recommend finding a quiet place away from your office.
Life happens and perhaps an interruption is unavoidable. However, if interruptions are constant we reserve the right to terminate the session.
I have a no refund policy that I think is quite reasonable.
- I am providing a perishable service – my time.
- We began our relationship by talking with each other in the free Introductory Conversation for 20 minutes or perhaps more.
- Prior to the Introductory Conversation I had invested at least 30 minutes of my time reviewing the extensive documentation that you had sent me.
- You became aware of my approach, and whether you felt comfortable.
- My style and approach is not for everyone. I can be very direct. I may challenge your thinking.
- If you do not feel comfortable, then do not proceed.
- Although it has been my personal experience that some discomfort, and indeed chaos, is the result of letting go of preconceived perspectives and moving forward.
