My standard fee for a one-hour session of spiritual direction is $50 - $80. Each person is invited to prayerfully discern what they are able to offer depending upon their own circumstances.
After 5 years of joy and blessings as a spiritual director, I decided it was time to re-evaluate my fees and came to the reluctant realization that I had dramatically underestimated what I needed in order to make this a financially viable and sustainable full-time ministry. After much prayerful consideration, I have opted to suggest a sliding scale and invite each directee to offer whatever fits their personal/professional budgets. Because spiritual direction has been profoundly transformational for me and I believe that it can be for others as well, I don’t ever want cost to be a hindrance. If finances are at all a concern, let’s talk and I’m sure we can work something out.
Keep in mind 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.
