Tiers
Breathe
$1 or more per month
You're my patron! You're helping me create content that will help people navigate difficult situations. Breathing seems like a small and easy act, but it's the basis for everything, and these small pledges are just like that. Thank you!

You'll have access to the patron-only feed with bonus blog posts, and access to many blog posts a week early.
Make some tea
$3 or more per month
It takes a bit more effort to go and make a cup of tea, but these intentional acts of self-care make a big difference in the day. Thank you!

Your name will be on the acknowledgements section of my website.
Stretch
$5 or more per month
Take some time to be present in your body, and stretch those parts that are tight. This level makes it possible for me generate content with less stress, to stretch into new content and ideas. I know it's more effort on your part to contribute more, and I appreciate it. Thank you!

I regularly generate resources and handouts to go with my workshops, and at this level, you'll have access to those!
Writing date
$10 or more per month

 At this level, you'll be able to suggest a self-care topic once a year and I'll write a blog post about it. Plus the earlier rewards. And, as of May 2018, you'll get a hand-drawn Stick Figure card once per season!

Read a zine
$20 or more per month
I'm still working on the books, but it's still slow. And as of May 2018, I've decided to generate zines! At this level, you'll get a physical copy of each zine.

And as I make progress on the books, you'll get to read and offer feedback on each chapter as they're written, and you'll be thanked in the acknowledgements. And, you'll get to read what I'm writing for publication outside of the books. Plus all of the earlier rewards.
Support sliding scale narrative therapy
$50 or more per month

All of my narrative therapy work is offered on a sliding scale with no questions asked, because financial barriers to accessing mental health support are an injustice. Offering my work this way is one way that I can take a stand against the harms perpetuated against marginalized and vulnerable people who need help under capitalism. But this means that I am currently struggling to make ends meet. 


I'm adding this tier so that patrons can help support my narrative therapy work with community members who are experiencing financial hardship.


In May 2019, 80% of the people I'm working with in one-on-one sessions access the sliding scale. 

Sponsor a group narrative discussion!
$100 or more per month

At this level, you'll be sponsoring a group narrative session every month. These are 2-3 hour discussions that happen within small groups, most often on a topic that is currently an issue for that community. I facilitate multiple discussions every month, and this work makes a big difference.


As of May 2019, these monthly groups include:


Possibilities Calgary Bi+ Discussion group

The Non-binary Discussion group

The Climate Grief group

The StrongHold Intergenerational QSA group (the narrative discussion is one small part of this larger event each month)


As well as other events, such as the BPD Superpowers discussion hosted in May 2019, and the Celebrating Trans Feminist Activisms hosted in March 2019.


I do not have any official or organizational funding for this work, so patrons make it possible!
