rates and accessibility

The bulk of my work is creating educational content that is available to all. I write micro-essays on Instagram, have an advice column, write occasional newsletters and blog posts, and in the future plan to resume creating content on YouTube. I have a Patreon page which I utilize as a means of creating a mutual aid based community with my audience. I can offer my content for free while those who benefit from and appreciate my work support me with a monthly pledge that makes doing this work more sustainable for me.

For consultations regarding transformative justice and handling intra-community harm I work on a pay-what-you-can basis as I feel this support should not be limited by income. I request that if you are seeking these services out that you still read on to understand my approach to compensation and mutual exchanges.

For other services that are more individualized such as tarot and spell creation and casting, it is important to me to offer options for clients who aren’t able to afford the full rate but still wish to work with me. For these clients I offer sliding scale, trades, and partial trades. 

Here are the accessibility options I offer:

Sliding scale. My sliding scale is honor-system based. I ask that you consider your personal finances and life circumstances when deciding how much you can sustainably pay. Some things to consider include economic barriers and background, dependents, and your employment status and type of employment.

Sliding scale is not about choosing to pay less, or you deciding what you think my services are worth.

Sliding scale is about granting access to services for people who for a variety of reasons struggle more to survive capitalism. Please consider that my time, experience, and labor is valid and important and that myself and my child deserve to survive capitalism. Weigh this against your own means and knowing that you deserve services, and come to the number that feels right and doable to you.

Trades. While I am not able to do this for every client, I am happy to work out some trades. Please note that trades need to be negotiated in advance. Trades are not valid for use in the shop and for skype sessions, trade items will need to be received before services are provided. I value trades based on my sliding scale rates. 

Partial trades. Partial trades include part monetary compensation and part trade.

If you’re wanting to do a trade or need a sliding scale rate- please email me. For sliding scale, I will have to create a custom invoice for you on PayPal.
