(backdated, as time has not been on my side this week)

When I went to session today, I told Y right up front that I wasn't certain if I would be able to continue therapy more frequently than every other week, if that often, due to our sudden drastic change in financial status. I'm already at the low end of her sliding scale - but that's $50 a week I could be using to keep the gas tank filled, or buy groceries, or pay the phone bill....

She offered to drop my payment to $35 - cutting into her own percentage (she's a senior intern, not fully licensed; the office she works through gets roughly half of what she collects from her clients) - and is willing to carry a three-session outstanding balance until our finances clear themselves up.

To say I was stunned by the offer is putting it mildly. But she and I have been working together, on and off, for more than three years now. It's nice to know she's willing to go to such lengths to keep that going.
