General Info for New Clients – Welcome!
Please submit the New Client Questionnaire. For Spirit-Mediated Healing work either schedule an initial consultation appointment or wait for me to assess your questionnaire information.
Depending on your life conditions and where you are in your healing process, I may recommend other forms of work to be done first or concurrent with our work together. If for any reason I feel it is not advisable to work with me at this time, I will provide alternative suggestions and possible referrals.
Most appointments are remote via the video conferencing platform Zoom. For those in the Southern Oregon area sometimes in-person sessions are available. Contact me directly to inquire about available in-person appointments.
If you have questions or issues using my scheduler feel free to contact me via e-mail.
Appointments are paid for at time of booking. Rescheduling and appointment cancellation require 48 hour notice. No refunds will be issued for no-shows or late cancellations, and consultation deposits will be forfeit. Email me if there are any extenuating circumstances.
Session rates are for the time slot reserved and are not for any particular outcome.
Be on-time for your appointment. If you’re going to be late, or having technical difficulties, please send me an e-mail letting me know, otherwise I will assume you are a no-show after five minutes. Appointment duration will not be extended for a late start unless I am the one running late. If we’re having too much in the way of technical difficulties we can switch to a phone session.
Please install Zoom well in advance of your appointment. Your confirmation and reminder e-mails will give you the Zoom link for your appointment.
General hours (in Pacific Time):
Tuesday and Thursday morning and afternoon
Availability will vary depending on my teaching schedule.
If you would like to have a talk about these methods as they may apply to your specific experiences I offer free 20-minute consultations in which I answer questions and offer my recommendations for your healing process. Fill out the New Client Questionnaire in advance of your appointment so we can spend the time in discussion. Consultations do not include diagnostic assessment and are not mini-appointments.
These appointments are free but will require a $60 deposit that will be refunded after the session takes place. The deposit will not be refunded if the appointment is missed or cancelled with less than 48 hours notice.
If your intention changes and you no longer intend to start working with me, or you have booked with another practitioner, please cancel your consultation.
Spirit-mediated healing sessions can involve soul-part retrieval, power retrieval, extraction, mediated ancestral healing, compassionate spirit relocation, pattern and curse unravelling, and energy system assessment and clearing. You must be in stable mental health and not in crisis to do these sessions. The remote format works well for many but not all types of work, and me and my spirit team may not be the best fit for your circumstances. If I am unavailable or not a good fit for your work, or if I believe the remote format is not advisable, I will provide referrals to practitioners with similar training whenever possible.
You are a good fit for these sessions if you are self-responsible and ready to advocate for your well-being, grow in authentic power and agency, and do what is needed to get there. This is a path of transformation with layers and stages of growth. Some issues are ripe and ready to change and resolve in short periods of time; some issues are complex or more thematically ingrained in life experience and take longer to work through. Persistence and commitment are key. As this work goes deep and can require integration time, unless there is an immediate need appointments are spaced at a minimum of three to four week intervals.
Readings are consultations with wisdom guides and well ancestors. They highlight the energy dynamics of situations and help us navigate life from a place of authentic connection and purpose. They help you be informed about the dynamics of a situation so you can be more empowered to be at choice and enact meaningful change.
New Clients: Please fill out and submit the New Client Questionnaire. With spirit work I consult my allies and see if our working together is a good fit. I will contact you after receiving your questionnaire and let you know if we can proceed with an appointment (consultation sessions are an option if you would like to meet before scheduling an appointment). If working together isn’t a good fit at this time I will provide you with referrals.
*I am not taking new clients for ALH at this time with two exceptions: people who are in or are intending to take one of my courses/trainings, and people who want extra support for establishing ritual boundaries and working with lineage troubles. Otherwise please see the referral list at ancestralmedicine.org for alternative providers.*
This is a multi-session process. Not all sessions need to be with a practitioner; once clients are familiar with the process they can do their own sessions at home and use facilitation as needed. In these sessions the client is supported in intuitively connecting with their own ancestors. Maris helps keep the process on-track but does not contact the client’s ancestors for them. For those newer to intuitive perception, foundational work in that area may be beneficial before engaging the ancestral lineage healing process directly.
If you are new to the work and meet the above criteria, submit the New Client Questionnaire and I will provide the scheduling links for a first 90-minute session.
