Rates and Locations

Rates

At present my standard rates are quite low. Additionally, I do sometimes offer a limited amount of consultation which is either free-of-charge or done for a very minimal fee. But as for the standard rates:

If you like to keep it simple, I offer a $60 per meeting rate which also covers a good deal of between-session work, and comes with a $10 discount for the first meeting. (When the Logic-Based Consultation method is used — at least in a detailed way — it tends to require an average of 2-4 hours of work on my part, outside of our meetings.)

I also offer a combination rate, which charges separately for meetings and between-session work. Currently this is a $40 per meeting rate, and $10 per hour rate for between-session work. If we think your concern or goals may not require a great deal of LBC — maybe, for example, you mainly need someone to listen to you — then this combination rate may be preferable for you.

If I need to drive a long way to where we meet, there may be an additional charge for that, but it won’t be a surprise. We’ll discuss it beforehand. And speaking of where we meet . . .

When we meet in person (rather than virtually), we’ll typically meet and talk in a public location such as a coffer house. If you’d prefer a bit more privacy, or just a bit less potential distraction, we can use a meeting room (or “study room”) at a library. I also know of at least one coffee house which has reservable rooms.

This is fairly standard practice for philosophical consultation and philosophical counseling.
