Pay What You Can Program

PAY WHAT YOU CAN (PWYC) TERMS & CONDITIONS
 
I offer a limited number of PWYC appointments per month as a way of giving back to the community and supplying services to those who otherwise cannot afford them. 
 
How To Qualify:
 
It’s easy. Schedule a consultation. It will cost you $25. During our consultation, express interest in the PWYC program. 
 
Your need for financial assistance must be genuine. I cannot and will not attempt to verify that. It is a matter of integrity on your part.
 
It may sound superstitious but I find that when someone does not make fair payment, the knowledge that they somehow are “getting away” with something inhibits their progress. Indeed, attempting to create and administer a sliding scale led to the development of the PWYC program. 
 
Your need must be real and your financial investment should be one that is valuable to you. If there is room in the program, I will accept you into it. 
 
The program works as follows:
 
  • If there is currently room in the program, you will be accepted and we will schedule an initial session either in person or online. If not, I will give you an ifea about when the openings will be. 
  • During sessions, and in virtually every other way, you will be treated exactly like any other client receiving my full service.
  • Payment is Required—You must make a payment at every session.
  • If we are working in person, you will place an amount of cash, paper money only, no coins, no checks nor any promises to pay in the future…just cash. You decide how much but remember, the program is called Pay What You Can, not Pay What You Want.  The amount does NOT have to be the same each time. Do not write anything on the envelope or include any identifying materials whatsoever. No notes or cards. You simply use the envelope as your payment. I do not personally open any of the envelopes. They are processed either at month’s end or quarterly. I will never know how much money any client puts in an envelope. 
  • If we are working online, you will make your payment 24 hours prior to our session. Unfortunately, the amount of your payment will not be anonymous, but neither will it be regarded. I receive a notice from that a payment has been received but do not open the notice further. You will just have to trust me on that. It’s the only way I can manage to offer this program for online sessions.
 
 Terms And Conditions:
 
  • Again, your need for financial assistance must be genuine. I cannot and will not attempt to verify that. It is a matter of integrity on your part. 
  • As the number of PWYC appointments is limited, you may need to wait several weeks for your first appointment. After that you will schedule follow-up appointments as I suggest.
  • We need to be able to work regularly and consistently. Extended gaps in the process, those going beyond an agreed-upon interim, usually one to two weeks, may result in your losing your space in the program and needing to wait for another opening.
  • Appointments are a commitment on both our parts. Emergencies excepted, I will not cancel an appointment fewer than 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment except when the client fails to comply with program procedures. You agree to provide at least 24 hours’ notice to reschedule. I reserve the right to offer your PWYC program space to another client should you not provide sufficient notice or should you simply fail to show up for an appointment.
  • If you need to reschedule an appointment, you may have to wait for another one, but you can accomplish this process. 
  • You agree and commit to following my instructions regarding strategies and instructions for between sessions.  Not complying with these instructions not only limits the probability of your success but demonstrates a lack of commitment on your part to achieve the change you wish and may render our work together useless and a waste of time. Sometimes people struggle. Just talk to me about it. I want to help you. 
  • Failure to comply with these policies, especially without consulting with me directly, may result in an immediate termination of your participation in the program. 
  • All of the terms and conditions contained in the online Client Information Form apply to PWYC clients as well.
