We provide free consultation virtual sessions, on Zoom, to all prospective clients so clients will first fill out either Shawnta’s or the Staff Consultation Form (depending on who they want to see) and after the prospective client notifies us that the form has been completed, then Shawnta or a staff member will contact the client to schedule the consultation session.

Our consultation virtual sessions take between 30 – 60 minutes and the goal is for the prospective client and Mindful Bodies staff to determine if they are a good clinical fit for each other , Prospective clients are encouraged to ask Mindful Bodies counselors detailed questions and pay attention to whether they feel like the counselor can help them with their concerns.
