I screen all new friends, without exception, for my safety and comfort and for the safety and comfort of my wonderful clients. I absolutely will not see you if you do not pass my screening.
I offer four kinds of screening, detailed below. The first two options are suitable for those who have seen providers before and the latter two options are ideal for newbies.
1. Provider references
I will happily reach out to other providers to verify you. I require the following:
You met with the providers within the past six months.
They are established verifiable providers.
You are able to provide at least two references.
Please send the following for each of your two references:
Website and/or social media links
Email and/or phone number
Please have at least two recent (within six month) okays.
I do not accept employment verification without okays.
3. Employment Verification
Please send one or more of the following:
A link to your LinkedIn profile, which must have a photo and 200+ connections for me to accept it as screening
Your work website bio, with pic
A link to another website including a photo of you that verifies your employment (such as your IMDB page or a newspaper or magazine article about you
A photo of your work ID badge and a photo of your government-issued ID
4. Coffee Consultation
If none of the above options work for you, you can book a public meeting with me in lieu of other screening. We'll meet at a coffeeshop or bar and chat for around 30 minutes. If all goes well, we'll schedule a session for another day. I never offer a session on the same day as a consult.
Coffee consultations are $100, cash only. Please present this amount in a gift card or small gift bag at the beginning of the consult.
Those screening using this option MUST show a drivers license or other photo ID in order to book a session. You may email me a photo of your ID (feel free to obscure the address, but photo, name, and date of birth must be visible) or present it to me at the consult.
