Value for Service

I consider it a privilege to join in relational psychotherapy with you.
The work we do is unique, real, and lasting. A session of this nature is difficult to compare other than to consider the difference between seeing a picture of Devils Punch Bowl, and actually being there in the wet air, the lush greens, the trickling water. Reading about therapy vs joining therapy. How do you set a price on the real thing, when money is tight and the value potentially immense.Your healing and joy are more important to me than your money.
