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:
The initial consultation by phone, Skype or in person $340
This is the fee for a regular consultation and includes my time to review the questionnaire, prepare the analysis sheet, repertorize the case, take your case, make a prescription, and prepare the remedy with instructions . This fee covers up to four hours of my time. I charge an additional $40 per hour for additional time needed. Also included are a 2 and 4 week email progress report, which I request that you initiate.
Follow up consultations by phone, Skype or in person $180
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 prepare the remedy with instructions. This fee covers three hours of my time. There is an additional charge of $40 an hour if I work in excess of three hours on your case for a follow up.
Additional Services Offered
Quick acute consultation $125
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.
COVID19 Initial Consulation $250
This consultation rate is for people who have been in good health and who are seeking treatment, because they believe that they have come down with COVID19. We will be focusing on the acute case. If the patient has chronic health conditions in addition to COVID19, then I would charge the regular initial consultation fee.
Internet consultation fee $50
This is for requests for advice over the internet where I have to examine the client’s chart to make a recommendation. This charge does not apply to clients on LM potencies, asking questions about whether to stop or start their bottles. It also does not apply to the two week progress report after taking the remedy, or when I request a progress report.
Fee for testing remedies $50
This is for people who want me to test how remedies resonate with them either in person or over Skype or FaceTime. This covers my time to review the case, and make a prescription. This service is only available to established clients, who do not need a full 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, plus one or two follow up consultations. People with many health issues may schedule three to four consultations in the first few years of homeopathic treatment.
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 many of them have fees that are lower than mine. I hope this helps you find a homeopath to work with that is affordable for you. Here is the link: http://www.bayareahomeopathyassociation.org/baha-directory.html
Homeopaths Without Borders has announced that they are offerring free Coronavirus consultations.
I welcome your e-mail progress reports, but I do ask that you keep them brief and to the point. I spend 2 to 3 hours a day responding to e-mails. This cuts into the time I need to work with clients, and study my cases. Please write when you really need to. E-mail should not be a substitute for scheduling a consultation.
I am looking forward to meeting or talking to you on the phone and working with you to improve your health. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions or concerns, or if you would like to schedule an appointment.

I appreciate your visiting my website and reading my articles and taking the time to write your comments. I welcome your comments and will post them if it looks like what you have to say will be helpful to others. I may not write a comment back, but will let the article itself present my point of view.
I am no longer responding to people’s questions regarding personal health matters on my blog, because it becomes stressful for me due to the volume of such questions that I get.
Also there is no way I can actually answer these questions properly without familiarizing myself with the person’s health.
For anyone who is interested in working with me, please complete the appropriate questionnaire and send it to me. This way I will know that you are ready to move forward with a consultation.
I wish you the best of health.
Peace be with you,
Deborah Olenev CCH RSHom (NA)
