I've set up a Ko-Fi!
Updated: Apr 4
For some time I have had a process in place for my clients of financial privilege to sponsor other folks who see me on a sliding scale. Basically, they choose an extra fee to consistently add to their invoice that supports me in seeing other clients.
However, I've been wondering how else I might be able to take on more clients who need low-cost services. How else they can be sponsored without depending on other clients (who themselves are marginalized by transness and more)?
Through Ko-Fi anyone can donate as long as they have Paypal or a credit card. You can set up a recurring donation of your choosing to continually sponsor, or tip a one-time amount anytime you've learned or reflected on something via my Instagram.
The funds donated will be used for several purposes:
💜 Supporting folks who are outside of my sliding scale, and accessing reduced rates for counselling
🤍 Having a fund for folks who need help getting earbuds with mics so that they can access online counselling
💚 Supporting a queer, nonbinary, Chinese counsellor (that's me!)
If there are folks interested in setting up monthly donations, please get in touch! Right now my Ko-Fi is just the free version. If there's enough support I'll upgrade the account so that it can receive monthly donations (its $6 USD/month).
