“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has” – Hippocrates (460-377 BC)
Homeopathy doesn’t “treat” an illness; it seeks to understand and address the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is far from a medical process. My focus as a homeopathic practitioner is on you, the client, as I seek to discover how the dis-ease is specifically affecting your life. Effectively I work beyond the “label” of the disease and inquire about the your lifestyle, medical history and family well-being as well as the presenting symptoms.
The initial consultation typically lasts for approx. 90 minutes, and it is an opportunity for you to discuss your physical, emotional, or mental challenges.
After the initial consultation, follow-ups are conducted on an as-needed basis, usually 6-12 weeks apart. A typical follow up appointment lasts for approx. 45 – 60 minutes.
Initial constitutional intake (90 minutes) $295 ($250 for children < 2 years)
Focus consultation of chief complaint (60 minutes) $150
Follow up consultation (45-60 minutes) $90 – $110
Acute consultation, existing clients (15 minutes) $40 (please note that email exchanges asking for a remedy also count as a consult)
Gemmotherapy/Biochemic consultation (45 minutes) $125 (included in a regular homeopathic consultation)
Homeoprophylaxis (HP) (60 minutes) Full program (w/kit and booklet) is $370 for one child
($464-$480 for 2-4 children in the same family)
Travel HP (30-45 minutes) $90 (remedies ordered separately from the pharmacy)
The fees include the suggested doses of most homeopathic remedies, and brief check-in calls/emails to track response in between follow-ups. Any additional supplements (gemmotherapy tinctures, biochemic tissue/cell salts, flower essences) are to be obtained separately by the client, online or from health food stores, or obtained from me.
If you are experiencing financial difficulty, I offer a sliding fee scale. Please discuss with me to arrange something mutually workable.
General Policies Regarding Fees, Payment, and Scheduling:
Payment: The client is responsible for payment of all fees at time of service. Payment may be made with cash or check. Credit cards are accepted via an online credit card processing service such as Paypal. A fee will be charged for any check returned unpaid.
No-shows and Same-day-cancellations: Reminders are sent prior to an appointment as a courtesy, but clients will be held responsible for missed appointments whether or not a reminder is sent. Client is responsible for payment of consult fees for no-shows, and late cancellations with less than 24 hours notice.
Interim Support: For scheduling, brief check-ins and acute complaints, please call or email. There is no charge for such communication and are intended to be brief and able to be taken care of in 5 minutes or less; if an acute appointment (usually 15 minutes) is required, it can often be scheduled later that day or conducted via email.
Long Distance Consultations – Off-Site Consultation: Clients who live outside of the Boston area can schedule consultation by telephone or better still via a web audio-video conferencing tool. I usually use Zoom to set up online meetings, and will provide the client with the necessary link to get connected and begin our meeting at the appointed time.
