Compensation

I am committed to making TCTSY and trauma resiliency support accessible and to a justice view of financial wellbeing.

This means that I need to cover expenses and receive enough compensation to support my own financial stability and mental and physical health.

And, compensation does not always need to be financial.

Many services are donation-based. When my basic costs are already covered, I am open to exchange of services or goods instead of money, and I offer spaces for free to folks who are not currently able to give.
