These are the consultation fees for anyone seeking homeopathic constitutional care:
Thank you for considering homeopathic treatment. The way I work is that I ask you to complete either the adult, children, or teen, questionnaire. When you have completed the questionnaire please e-mail it back to me. This will let me know that you are ready to schedule an initial consultation. The questionnaire facilitates the information gathering process, enables me to begin repertorizing your case prior to seeing you, and frees us up to use our time together to explore the root causes of your health problems in a deeper way. Please return the questionnaire to me in a non PDF format. Thank you. Here are links to the questionnaires:
As you read the consultation fees, please bear in mind that there is no compensation for the love, care and support I give to each client. You are getting something of tremendous value, which you cannot put a price tag on. What you are seeing below is my attempt to make a living at this profession.
The initial consultation by phone, Skype or in person $340
This is the fee for an initial consultation and includes my time to review the questionnaire, prepare the analysis sheet, repertorize the case, take your case, make a prescription, and test the remedy intuitively. This fee covers up to five hours of my time. I charge an additional $60 per hour for additional time needed.
Follow up consultations by phone, Skype or in person $189
This is the fee for a regular follow up consultation. It includes my time to review your case, take the case, prepare the chart of symptoms, make a new prescription if required, and test the remedy, if needed. This fee covers three hours of my time. There is an additional charge of $60 an hour if I work in excess of three hours on your case for a follow up. The first follow up is usually scheduled at seven weeks from when you take a remedy for the average person. Some people need follow up consultations more frequently.
Acute consultation $150
This is available to clients who have already had an initial and follow up consultation. It is for emergency acute or trauma conditions where a thorough examination of the case is not necessary to make a prescription. This fee covers up to one hour of my time. If more time is needed, I charge the follow up consultation rate.
Progress Report and E-Mail Fees
Progress reports and e-mails are no longer a free service or included as part of the initial consultation or follow-up visit. In order to help keep your homeopaths stress level down, please limit your e-mails to when it is absolutely necessary. Here are the rates for this service.
- Progress reports, requests for consultations or e-mails that can be responded to in ten minutes or less. No charge
- Progress reports or e-mails that require 10 to 30 minutes to respond to: $20
- Progress reports that require that I make a prescription, or remedy recommendation for an acute or chronic condition that can be responded to in 30 minutes or less will be viewed as an e-mail consultation: $60
- Progress reports by e-mail, phone or video conferencing where I need to study the client’s case and I spend from 30 minutes to two hours will no longer be viewed as a progress report, but will be billed as an acute consultation or follow-up consultation.
Budgeting for Homeopathy
Some people have asked me how many consultations will be needed in the first and subsequent years of treatment. Everyone is different, but I can give you averages. In the first year of treatment the average person schedules the initial consultation, and one or two follow up consultations. People with many health issues may may want to schedule consultations once a month, every other month or quarterly.
If my fees are high for you
I know that my fees are high for some people to afford. Here is a link to the Bay Area Homeopathic Association directory. Most of the homeopaths on this directory post their fees, and some of them have fees that are lower than mine.

After I have completed my work on your case, I will send you an invoice from my Quickbooks. Here are the payment methods available:
- Pay via credit card directly from the Quickbooks invoice.
- Pay via bank transfer on the Quickbooks invoice.
- Mail me a check.
- Pay via Zelle. Please use email@example.com for the payee
I am excited about working with you to help improve your health.
With best wishes for your health,
