Session Policies & FAQ's
Do you accept insurance?
No, Karina is not a licensed professional counselor or social worker and therefore cannot bill insurance companies. She has a MA in East/West Psychology from Antioch University and has worked as a holistic therapist and IFS inspired coach since 2009. Karina can accept HSA payments, and works on a sliding scale for those in need of financial assistance.
How does your sliding-scale work?
For Private Sessions:
Most coaches of Karina's education and experience charge thousands of dollars up front. This sliding scale aims to create equitable access with the purchase of single sessions at a reduced rate. Please consider the amount that will allow you to value your investment in the work, and that you can commit to paying:
2024 Sliding Scale Rates: $90-$150
Please confirm amount via email prior to scheduling
Sliding scale payments must be cash or via App Payment
For Sangha Healing Circles:
Sliding scale aims to create access for those seeking group support with limited finances. If the lowest amount of the three payment options is still not accessible, please email Karina.

When is payment due?
For virtual sessions, payment is due 48 hours before the appointment. This acts as confirmation of your session.
For in-person meetings, payment is due at the appointment.
Discount packages available for pre-payment.
Do pre-paid packages expire?
Yes. Karina cannot accept new clients until all outstanding packages are fulfilled, therefore packages cannot be left open ended. If you purchase a discount package of five individual sessions, they need to all be scheduled within six months. This work is most effective when consistent every 2-4 weeks.
What do I need to do to prepare?
New Clients, please fill out the Intake & Consent Form. You may want to wear clothes you would be comfortable moving or lying down in, but this is not required. Have a notebook and pen available to take notes!
What is your Cancellation Policy?
Karina's livelihood depends on fulfilling scheduled appointments. Short notice cancellations result in lost wages.
If you cancel an appointment within 48 hours, please make a donation to stay in good standing for rescheduling.
Most clients donate 50% of the session fee.
Donations can be made via Paypal, Venmo, or CashApp.
Karina reserves the right to terminate service for those who do not honor this policy.
Documented medical emergencies are exempt from this policy.
