Our Resilience Equitable Pricing

We are a collective of trauma therapists dedicated to creating a therapy practice that integrates individual healing with community healing. We recognize that one is not truly possible without the other.

 

White supremacy and capitalism creates a deep sense of scarcity - that there needs to be a hoarding of resources to create power over others. In healing from trauma, we uplift the impact of these systems and collectively move towards building community through shared, collective resources.

 

Since we survive in this system of scarcity, equity can feel incredibly uncomfortable. We hold that there is a difference between safety and comfort - and when working with trauma that can be difficult to differentiate. We believe that financial safety allows us to meet our basic and collective needs. Within this system, those with privilege and access may find themselves deeply uncomfortable with providing "more" financial support than others. 

 

Our Collective is continuously learning how to create an equitable pricing model that supports the sacred energetic exchange of healing. Currently, our model is based on intersections of identity, access, and resources. Below is how we differentiate payment for the Our Resilience group. Please reach out to Alex if you have any questions or suggestions.
