Financial Transparency Statement

It is important to me that my services are accessible to the folx who need them most.  I believe in healing justice and do not want finances to be a barrier. Given that health coaching is not covered by insurance, it is in alignment with my values to offer sliding scale options. 

As I considered my fees for services I wanted to be careful not to fall into the pattern of giving my labor away. All over the world, women, particularly women of color are paid less than ​their white and male counterparts. As a Black, Queer, cisgender woman who has spent countless hours, dollars, and emotional energy pursuing education and training (I've got the student debt to show it!), I aim to balance being fairly compensated for my work with providing financial accessibility to the folx who need my services most. 

Toward that end, I am adopting a 3 level sliding scale that includes:

Standard rates: The actual cost of services

Sustaining rates: This rate offers a discount for those who need it, but remains within a sustainable level of income

Supported rates: This rate is reserved for low-income folx and is made possible by the folx paying at the Standard rate

While I offer these options, it is understandable that even the supported rates will be inaccessible for some. Accordingly, I have reserved a small amount of openings for folx at a deeper slide. These openings are prioritized for BIPOC and LGBTQ   folx. Please email for more information. 

To help decide which sliding scale level is best for you please consider the following graphic:
