My clients determine their own fee for their sessions. In essence, I am saying, collectively to my clients I believe you are good, responsible and trustworthy to support me. I pledge to live lightly in order to make this as easy as possible. I do not feel a need to mandate a fee or deny the service. I do long for the day when access to healing is not limited by a patient's purchasing power nor a cure's profitability. The gifts of this planet and its inhabitants are given to us all. Thank you for your participation to demonstrate our fullest potential.
As this is an unorthodox practice, I offer this guidance. First, consider what another therapist would charge you and, if you consider it a fair and attainable price, let that be your fee. Second, you could choose the average per-client contribution per session or the break-even cost per session (fluctuates, see below). Third, you could contribute what you feel is fair and attainable based on your budget and means of support (family, employer, insurance, etc). In addition, be diligent in attending your scheduled sessions or, if you see a need to reschedule, do so as early as possible. As time goes along, please let me know your feelings and experience of this model as I continue to grow and learn also.
I am paneled as in-network with Cigna, Aetna, and the EAP's e4Health and Wellspring.
