• SLIDING SCALE PRICING

     
  • THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

    Some of our service are available on a sliding scale, at different prices depending on your individual access to money and wealth, both current and historical. Our sliding scale is an intentional effort to distribute resources equitably between our clients, and each will be address on case-by-case basis during our interviewing process.

     

    Please take this 3 minute quiz below to find out which pricing option you qualify for.

     

    Try not to get hung up in the technicalities of these questions. The idea is for you to weigh your level of privilege, so if you’re stuck on a detail in a specific question, lean into the simple yes or no of, “Do I have privilege with this topic?”

     

    To figure out what the exchange for our services will be, please take out a piece of paper, and write 1-18 on the paper. Then take this short quiz, writing Yes or No next to each number.

     

    At the end, tally up your NOs.

     

    If at the end of this quiz*, you qualify for a lower tuition tier, but you have access to funds for a higher one, you might consider still applying at the higher tier, as an act of community solidarity for those who might need the lower tier spots. Of course, if you need the lower tier, please feel free to apply at that level.
