Financial Accessibility


I believe everyone deserves to heal and be well. I offer two programs aimed at helping those with limited resources to access and get support - a sliding scale pricing model and a pay-it-forward program.


Sliding Scale Pricing Model


In an effort to give back to the community and support those in need, I offer three full sessions per month at significantly reduced, tiered prices. There is no official application - I simply follow the honour system, and so all I ask is that you carefully consider what you can invest in your healing journey before requesting a session. Spaces are limited, as I only offer three spots per month in an effort to also honour my own need for security and wellness.

I offer one session per month in each of the following reduced tiers. See guidelines below:

SPROUTING ($50): I frequently worry about meeting basic needs and don’t always achieve them. I have debt and it sometimes prohibits me from meeting my basic needs. I have no access to savings. I am unemployed or underemployed. I rent unstable housing, or am currently seeking housing.

REACHING ($75): I worry about meeting my basic needs, but still regularly achieve them. I have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs. I am employed. I rent relatively stable housing. I do not have access to significant financial savings or expendable income. I rarely buy new items because I am unable to afford them.

GROWING ($100): I may worry about meeting my basic needs, but regularly achieve them. I have some debt but it does not prohibit attainment of basic needs. I am employed at a stable job. I rent stable housing. I have access to some savings and have some expendable income. I am able to buy some new items and I thrift others.

The “THRIVING” tier is for when you’re ready and able to commit to my standard rates. 

Contact me if you’d like to book a session and reference your tier. If I have sessions remaining for that month, I will schedule you in. Otherwise, I will add you to a waitlist and inform you once a session in your tier becomes available.


Pay-It-Forward Session Bursary Program


HOW TO CONTRIBUTE:

If you would like to join me in supporting those in need, I offer a Pay-It-Forward program. While purchasing your own session, you are invited to donate any amount you wish to contribute into the Spirited Roots Bursary Fund (every little bit helps). As soon as the Fund reaches a balance equal to the full price of a session, I offer a session for free to the next person on the Bursary waitlist. 

This allows you to contribute as much or as little as you would like - collaborating with all of the Spirited Roots community to purchase sessions for those who need them but cannot afford them at this time. It also allows me to offer as many complimentary sessions to those in need as our community can support (up to a max. of 10 per month). Contact me if you’d like to contribute to the Fund without booking your own session.


HOW TO ACCESS SUPPORT:

If none of the sliding scale tiers apply to your situation, or you need assistance and all spots have been taken for the current month, you may add your session to the Bursary waitlist. As soon as the balance of the crowd-sourced fund reaches the cost of a full session, I will contact you with the details of how to claim your complimentary session. Please contact me by email to add your session request to the current waitlist.

* The model on which I based the development of this sliding scale and the pay it forward bursary program comes from Jennifer Patterson of Corpus Ritual.
