Why Should I Hire a Consultant if I Can Read a Book?

I encourage all my clients to read books and learn as much as they can about a subject of interest.

The primary benefit of hiring me as a consultant is that I have read many books and studied with great teachers. I will then take all of the information and use it to customize a solution specifically for you. 

Often there are so many choices it is difficult to choose a course of action—I can help you make a decision and support you while you implement it. During my feng shui training I have learned a great deal of information that is not available in books, it is only passed down orally.

It is difficult to be objective about yourself so a consultant can provide valuable feedback and can sometimes help you see the obvious and connect the dots to see important patterns.

Since I have studied a variety of techniques and disciplines, I can give you the benefit of incorporating them into every consultation.

I Want to Have a Feng Shui Consultation But I Have Clutter and My House is a Mess.

That is the perfect time to have a feng shui consultation. The current state gives valuable information about where you might have challenges and identify opportunities to move forward. I once had a clutter makeover that was filmed for cable TV.

I am here to help you, not to make judgments.

I’ve found that is easier to have an objective professional help you rather than rely on family and friends. 

Will I Have to Hang Up a Lot of Strange Looking Things to Have Good Feng Shui?

There are a variety of ways to impact the energy of your space using light, sound, color, movement and furniture placement, for example. There are hundreds of possible solutions available.

As part of the consultation, I will give you several options based on your preferences. I have used non-traditional items to adjust feng shui—an important element is setting an intention for what the object should do.

Ultimately you, the client decides what, how and when to implement the recommendations from the consultation.

Why Do I Need to Pay with Red Envelopes and Where Do I Get Them?

The information I share with you is considered sacred information to be highly respected and taken seriously.

The ritual of paying with red envelopes honors the exchange of this information and give you, the client, the opportunity to participate in the healing process.

I have red envelopes available for sale, you can buy them at STAPLES© or even make them yourself. In the Resources section I have listed several websites where you can purchase envelopes. You can also buy envelopes at

Why are the Counseling Programs 12 Weeks Long?

Each program covers a great deal of information. I have tried to develop a program that will provide enough time to cover the necessary information. It is critical that the client has enough time to implement the recommendations and develop new habits while receiving support.

It takes at least 21 days to develop a new habit and much longer to make significant long term changes.

During this time we are building an important foundation. I want to make sure clients are willing to commit the time and effort necessary. How many of you have taken a weekend workshop, go home fired up to make change and then put the workshop materials on a shelf?

I’ve done it myself. Since I also include a variety of techniques and products, I need time to introduce them gradually so the client has the opportunity to experience each one alone, without feeling overwhelmed.

Will I Be on a Specific Diet or Have to Eat Only Brown Rice and Seaweed?

As with all my services, the program is customized to the client’s needs.

I will help you look at your current diet and try to find the balance that is missing by applying different systems of eating. What may be needed is a strategy based on making better food choices when eating out, having healthier snacks available, learning to read food labels and perhaps making a few simple items. Other clients may be knowledgeable and currently eat a relatively healthy diet and want to try other dietary systems such as raw foods, macrobiotics or vegetarian eating.

I am here to give you information and support you while you try new things—I am not the food police.

Will I Have to buy a Lot of New Kitchen Equipment in Order to Improve My Cooking? What if I Have a Very Small Kitchen?

I have learned most of my cooking in a very small condo where I had about 18" of counter space and no dishwasher! We will look at what you currently have and make it work. I may suggest things or lend you some equipment so you can have a chance to see if it something you may want to buy at a future time.

Having a few good quality, versatile tools can make a big difference without spending a lot of money.

As part of the program, each week I will provide a kitchen item for you to keep.

How much will a program cost?

I haven’t included specific costs on this website, because it will depend on what you want to accomplish. After the free initial consultation, I will prepare a proposal of programs/products/services to accomplish the goals.The final cost will depend on what package and service options are selected.

Options will be available to receive discounts based on type of payment, number of services selected, pre-payment. All products and services will be included in the cost of the program. There are no hidden costs for travel or additional products that you need to buy. You also have several levels of service to choose from.

Where and when do we meet?

It is preferable to meet in person. I like to have the initial consultation at a neutral place so there are no distractions. However, I recognize that this may not always be possible so a phone consultation is always an option.

For the 12 week programs, clients will select a specific time and day of the week from the slots available and maintain that time for the duration of the program.

What are the payment options?

I offer flexible payment options. You can pay by cash, check or credit card.  Discounts and/or additional services are available for prepayment. Depending on the program you select, we can structure an appropriate payment schedule.

What if I need to cancel?

Like all professionals, I require 24 hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment. Otherwise, full payment is expected. Some appointments can be rescheduled but clients who select a 12 week program are expected to keep their time and day unless it is an emergency because I want clients to honor their commitment to themselves and not let the daily crisis interfere with the program.

Can I bring my friends?

I would be happy to structure a program for you and a group of your choosing. Generally, sessions with a group are 90 minutes rather than 60 so participants have an opportunity to discuss information and share with the group. Discounts are available depending on the size of the group.

Is there any science to back up what you do?

For every product and service I offer, I would be happy to provide you with a list of books for additional reading and additional references. I have an extensive library of books and information that I make available to my clients if they would like to read further – I have books on feng shui, dietary theories, cookbooks, sound healing, space clearing, clutter management, energy healing, reiki and many other topics. I have some specialized information on specific health topics such as depression, menopause and diabetes.  

What should I tell my doctor, family and friends?

My products and services are designed to support your overall health, but I am not a licensed medical practitioner. I do not diagnose or treat specific diseases nor should you discontinue any medication or treatment program unless directed by your doctor.

The products and services are designed to help you make longer term improvements in your health and lifestyle. We can discuss specific concerns during your initial consultation.
