with the intention of making this work accessible, i work with a sliding scale, a tool that allows for several price points based on your circumstances.
the actual cost of a session, for those who are comfortably able to meet their basic needs:
—able to pay for "wants" and spend little time worried about securing necessities
—have a stable home
—a well-paid job
—access to health care
—a western passport
—access to financial savings and/or generational wealth
—go on vacations annually
—own property, or rent higher-end properties
—have personal savings.
for those who are able to meet their basic needs but have little-to-no expendable income:
—have an irregular housing / work situation
—have access to health care, state support and solidarity networks
—sometimes afford vacation
—have some expandable income (for cafés, cinema, concerts, leisure items, etc.)
—can ask family members, partners, or friends for financial support
for those who struggle to meet basic need & don’t always achieve them.
—paying for this session would create a significant hardship—not being able to put food on the table, pay rent or transportation.
—suffer from multiple forms of discrimination
—have debt / support family
—very unstable work / housing situations. rent lower-end properties
—limited/no access to health care and state support
—can’t afford vacation or unplanned small expenses
- this is a solidarity system: the higher rates compensate for the lower ones. if you are able to, please give more so i can continue offering this work—in general, and to those who can’t pay the actual cost of a session.
- be aware: if you pay the lowest rate when you can truthfully afford the higher ones, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility.
- if you are multiply marginalized and the lowest rate is inaccessible to you, you’re welcome to come in for free. i offer a limited number of gift sessions every month, and wish to make space for you. (please mention this when you book an intro call.)
- a longer process can often be supportive in allowing trust & understanding to build. i prefer that you pay a bit less to be able to come more times.
i allow contradications to inform
my path & choices around money.
i wish to resource myself through my work so that i am able to offer it.
