My rates are dependent on a number of factors. I usually present a client or their parent/guardian with a scale of best package for the need and then less complete packages. If the client is unsure of how to proceed, we discuss their budget. Often clients have not considered the dollar amount that they actually are prepared to spend. And your rates should reflect your expertise and experience. If you have not been training a particular type of client and will be using this as a learning experience, charging less is appropriate. And initiating a client such a youth client into your scope could benefit your business by bringing in more youth clients.
