Pay per session
This set up is perfect for new clients or those clients who are looking to work on a specific, short-term goal. Sessions are billed monthly.
Pay for block of hours
This option is often used by clients who want to pay ahead for a month (typically 5 hours) or semester of support (about 20 hours). Sessions are billed in advance.
