Overview of Policies and Consent
with Kari Halvorson, MS, RMT
Your First Contact: It may be helpful to you to have some specific information, before your first session. The purpose of this introduction is to orient you to my procedures. If you have any questions after reading this statement please discuss them with me during your first session.
Orientation: I provide unique and highly personalized intuitive readings and energetic support, consultation, and work. These services are informed by a variety of modalities including: empathy, Qi-gong, psychology, counseling theories, intuition, spiritual guidance, Reiki, shamanism, meditation, channeling of Light, prayer, angel and spirit communication, and mindfulness. Services are not and do not replace traditional mental health counseling, diagnostic tools, or healthcare services and do not intend to diagnosis, prevent, prescribe or treat mental health disorders or physical ailments. For local healthcare services you may visit www.221.org or call Mental Health Partners at 303-443-8500. If you need to talk to someone right away, a crisis line number is 1-844-493-8255. For emergencies, please call 911.
Initial Session: To schedule a session you may visit https://karihalvorson.youcanbook.me/ or call/text me at 503-475-5759, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For sessions over the phone/Skype, I will call you. During your initial session you and I will orient and develop a course of action for our work together. Payment is due at the time of services. You may pay through the website, with cash, credit, or check.
Location: All individual sessions are either over the phone, Skype or at my healing room. Sometimes clients ask me to meet outside of these locations. While this is an honor, due to the current research which states the therapeutic value is most enhanced without dual relationships, I do not see clients outside of the phone, Skype, or the healing room. The only exception is for group courses and for house calls in which the client had a recent surgery and can not travel. In these cases there is an extra $20 travel fee. This policy is to maintain the integrity of our work together and to create a safe container.
Courses: Payments in advance help me assure I will run the course. See the website www.KariHalvorson.com, "like" on facebook, and sign-up for the newsletter to receive updated courses and to register.
Goals: My services are a confidential process designed to help you thrive (one or all of the following may be applicable to you)—to help you reach your next real energetic step; to increase helpful life style changes; to gain greater levels of self-awareness; to increase your intuition; to clear, balance, and heal wounding; to energetically “charge your battery;” to support your holistic self exploration; to provide empowerment to your agency; to connect with and receive guidance from your soul and spirit guides; to elevate body-soul integration; to gain a better understanding of your holistic self; to learn effective personal coping strategies; to untie karmic knots; to gain greater existential meaning; to activate healthy energetic movements; to receive helpful intuitive insights; and to balance the energetic underlying aspects of ailments.
Process: It involves a relationship between you and me. I have the desire and willingness to help you accomplish your goals. This process may involve sharing sensitive, personal, and private information that may at times be distressing. During the course of this process, there may be periods of increased anxiety or confusion. The outcome of these services is often positive; however, the level of satisfaction of any one individual is not predictable. I am available to support you throughout this process. I encourage you to openly discuss with me your reactions, thoughts, and feelings, and to come to your own conclusions. As with all information you receive, it is up to you to evaluate and discern its relevance. No intuitive information is guaranteed to be accurate. You are ultimately responsible for all of your decisions, emotions, and behaviors.
Packages: Packages are offered at a discounted rate and I highly encourage the use of them. Recent research indicates that 12 sessions is the minimal for long lasting impact. I discount the packages to reward your commitment to working on yourself. Packages are only intended for the purchaser. You may purchase a gift certificate for a friend (who hasn't yet worked with me), if you wish.
Keeping Appointments: Your active participation in the healing, regenerating, growing, and Awakening to Thrive process is necessary for progress to be made. Therefore, I encourage you to attend all scheduled sessions. Should you need to miss a session, please re-schedule 24 hours before your scheduled session. If you should miss an appointment without canceling within that grace period, you will be liable for the full cost.
Confidentiality: Content shared with me is strictly confidential. However, I will report suicidal ideation; thoughts, intent or potential to harm others; and abuse of children, elders, and people with a disability. It is important to note that within courses confidentiality cannot be guaranteed due to other participants. Also, given that email, phone calls, text, and the location of my practice are never fully confidential, I cannot guarantee full confidentiality. Additionally, while I will not share the content of our work, I do not guarantee confidentiality that you are a client of mine so you can receive the benefits of the Referral Program!
Referral Program: As a way to say thank you, with each successful referral enjoy $10 (or more is there is a newsletter special) off your next individual session!
Communication: I use email to send out newsletters and updates. I do not, however, answer emails or texts that are of a personal nature (clients must make a session for this).
Additional Information: Because I make the clear intention to only work with persons who it is in their and my best and highest good to work together, sometimes I receive guidance not to work on someone. While it is highly unlikely, I reserve the right to decline services to anyone, at anytime, for any reason. I am not liable to provide a rationale.
I ______________________________________________________, have read the above conditions and disclosures, and received the referrals to traditional healthcare. I realize my work with Kari Halvorson does not substitute services with traditional mental or physical health practitioners and that intuitive readings are not guaranteed to be accurate. By signing this I confirm that I haven't had a psychological crisis and/or suicidal ideation in the past two years. I accept full responsibility for my behaviors. I accept the conditions and give my consent to engage in the Awakening to Thrive process with Kari Halvorson, MS, RMT.
