Do you have questions about how we can help your company?
Send us an email and we’ll get in touch shortly.


    How do I book my first appointment?

    It will be best to arrange a free consultation that can range from 15-30 minutes, so that we can talk about what you need and what will be the best fit. Please go to the Contact Us page, and complete the questions. When it is time for your consultation, you will be provided a web link for our virtual consultation.

    How Long are sessions?

    Individual sessions are a therapeutic hour which is 50 minutes.
    Groups are a range between 90-120 minutes.
    Individual Coaching is 60 minutes

    Do you take insurance?

    Currently, Manifestini operates on a self-pay basis and offers a limited number of sliding scale options according to income levels. We’ve taken this approach because insurance companies often necessitate an immediate diagnosis and typically control the duration and kind of treatment permitted under each plan. In an effort to assist, Manifestini offers a sliding scale, supplies superbills for out-of-network insurance reimbursement, and collaborates with non-profit organizations that provide space for grants.
    However, Dawn accepts certain insurances: Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Optum, Oscar Health Plan, and United Healthcare, and she handles billing through the Sondermind/Headway Platform.

    How do I pick between coaching and therapy?

    Therapy is often focused on mental health, healing, and problem solving. It is often focused on the life challenges that arise from emotional or mental health concerns (Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, and other mood disorders). This is a great choice for people who want to talk about past events, disscet the meaning and impact of those events, and establish healthy coping strategies to use on a daily basis.
    Coaching is focused on managing life stress and want to improve their work/personal life. One way to look at it is you have a big project and you need help taking it on and breaking it up into bite size pieces in orter to atain, or you need an accountability partner to help you stay on track.

    Can I do both coaching and therapy?

    It is often recommended that clients have separate coaches and therapists. While some pieces can be integrated, if it is identified that therapy is the primary focus that the clients need, we would identify the singular service to ensure that Manifestini is aligning with licensing and other ethical restrictions.

    Is everything Virtual?

    Right now all services will be virtual. June of 2023, there are plan’s to have a space to hold services in a face-to-face setting. Please keep an eye out on the website and your email, as some groups may be held within the community until a permanent space is identified.

    What are your Cancelation and No Show policy?

    Life definitely be lifing! We ask that you cancel at least 24 hours before you scheduled session. If you fail to cancel prior to 24 hours, or do not show you will be charged for the full session. If you have prepaid, you will forfeit that session. All policies will be discussed after your sessions are booked following your consultation.

    How much are your services anyways?

    Each service has a different price that can be discussed during your consultation.  Depending on income and other variables, a sliding scale is offered.

    I want professional coaching/consulting can my job pay for it?

    If you would like your job to pay for your coaching or consulting, your company will have to complete a contract with Manifestini Wellness.  Or you can pay per session, and we can provide you with an invoice to be reimbursed by your employer.
