daily life gives us the opportunity to do philosophy." – Plutarch
Because I believe philosophical counseling should be affordable to people within a wide range of income, I follow the American Philosophical Association in offering a sliding scale based on 0.1% of your annual household income. This is $10 for every $10,000 earned, before taxes, rounded up to the nearest $10.
For an individual, the rate is between $80 and $300 per session; for couples, the rate is between $160 and $400.
To estimate what you would pay, figure out your gross household income, which is the combined income of you and a spouse or committed partner before taxes, including all forms of income (i.e. wages, salaries, commissions, bonuses, alimony, royalties, etc.).
Then calculate 0.1% of this number and round up to the nearest 10. For example, one hundred thirty-six thousand ($136,000) becomes one hundred thirty-six ($136) and is rounded up to one hundred forty ($140).
If your household income varies significantly from year to year, we can work out an equitable fee together.
Anyone who prefers not to use the scale may pay $300 per session or $400 for a couple.
