Fees (2019)

My standard fee is $80/one-hour session. After 5 years of abundant blessings as a spiritual director, I decided it was time to re-evaluate my fees. I came to the reluctant realization that I had dramatically underestimated what I needed in order to make this a sustainable ministry. Although this fee is substantially higher than what I had previously asked, it is what will make it possible for me to continue doing the ministry that I love and that I believe can be so transformational in the lives of others.

That being said, I don’t ever want cost to be a hindrance for someone seeking spiritual direction. Therefore, I am glad to accept whatever faith gift you are able to offer depending upon your own circumstances. Let’s talk and I’m sure we can work something out. Something to keep in mind as well is that if you are a clergy-person, you may have access to continuing education or professional development funds that can be used for the purposes of spiritual self-care. Thank you for your understanding as I continue to prayerfully move toward making Belly of the Whale a sustainable ministry.


Typically, I meet with directees for bi-weekly or monthly hour-long sessions.  Some folks who are new to spiritual direction may wish to meet more regularly in the beginning and then move to monthly sessions.  Sessions can be in-person (University Circle, Cleveland) or on-line (Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or audio call) depending on your personal preference.  


I am able to receive payment by PayPal, Venmo, Credit Card, check or cash. Invoices are available upon request.
