Value Relating services

First, take a look at how psychosociotherapy differs from traditional psychotherapy. This page assumes you now appreciate the differences between the traditional focus on the individual and this more holistic approach.

This page features competencies by Steph Turner (pictured at right). As more staff come aboard, our array of services may increase. Contact us if you're interested in becoming a psychosociotherapist

 

Services resolving your neglected needs

The process is much the same in each service. No matter what your service goal, you receive support for your psychosocial wellness. Not merely for your psychological well-being, which tends to stigmatize. You receive focused attention to your specific needs.

Psychosociotherapy solves problems you may not even realize you have. And provide options you may not see as available to you now.

 

TransEconomic support

Receive team support for your inspiring dream of economic freedom & purpose.

We're unlikely to solve our specific problems with the same level of generalizing that created them.

Impersonal commerce force us to fit into convenient categories that pit one people's needs against another's. The needs themselves don't care about our oversimplifying combative beliefs. What we call conflicts are those needs having their way.

Reality is what happens when our beliefs get busy making other plans. Anxiety and depression are real. Far more real than the divisive categories of economic competition meant to keep things simple.

We prefer options to not only resolve your neglected needs but also to hold others accountable to responsibly resolve theirs.

Your "cis-economic" situation

impersonal competitive 

market

YOU:

income insecure

Stuck inside the economic divide

Your economic potential against the economic potential of the world of impersonal markets cold be called a power differential on steroids. Why bother trying to compete with others? Why not just settle into a job and let your employer create your earned income structure?

You're probably already deep in debt. Right? Maybe you never finished college, so you feel at a severe disadvantage to break out on your own. Hmm?

Working at a steady or semi-steady job is all you really know. Perhaps you make just enough after each paycheck for some leisurely fun every once an a while. But you find this does not satisfy your deeper yearning in life.

You have some talent going to waste. Or it's just a hobby and doesn't provide you an income. You may even have to spend money to enjoy your hobby, letting you slide deeper into debt. 

Yes, I've painted a depressing picture for you, and it comes close to pulling at some scabs. Is that pain trying to tell you to revisit your options? Are you ready to move beyond old generalizations about economic security to face all of your options?

CisEconomic generalizing to relieve pain

TransEconomic specifics to resolve needs

Reliance upon popular generalizations easily blind us from relevant specifics.

"Producer" and "consumer" are generalized categories that fail to capture the nuances of our full economic potential.

We generally trust these general categories to go easy on our cognitive load. Life is too busy to get into every detail. But now we must.

You can either ease your mounting pain by further relying on these arbitrary divisive categories of "buyer" and "seller." And overlook how you're heavily involved with both.

Or you can resolve your specific economic needs with supported endurance of their need-resolving challenges.

Your available options

Your avoidance options to avoid further pain

You can

  • continue working at a job you hate

  • keep telling yourself you should be a rugged individual and just accept your dismal economic situation

  • continue waiting for conditions to be just right

  • continue telling yourself that you are not good enough to make money from what you love to do for others

 
Your adversarial options to relieve your pain

You can

  • abruptly quit your day job to focus entirely on your economic dreams

  • slide deeper into debt indulging your passion instead of thinking how you can turn it into a source of revenue

  • invest what you can't really afford, to keep your passion alive, instead of relying on freemium offers to keep your startup costs low

 
Your conciliatory options to resolve needs behind the pain

You can

  • experiment with platform like Fiverr.com

  • join the Freelancers Union for support with budding self-employment

  • learn from the International Labor Organizations (ILO) how to avoid getting pulled into contingency labor traps

  • rethink economic relationships as the productivity do for others instead of the cash that merely symbolizes it

  • look for your potential buyers and see what they need (but not what you sell, yet)

  • ask your potential buyers what is their greatest problem around what you hope to provide

  • ask them how they are dealing with this problem, and why (you can market later to this why)

  • cut as many costs as you can, and waste as little time, to focus on this pursuit

  • test if your solution has any marketable value, before pouring a lot of money into something the market may reject 

  • negotiate with all creditors that you may get behind while embarking on a startup 

  • invite others to try your new thing for free, and to get their "social proof" testimonial

  • outsource simple tasks so you focus more on what matters

  • surround yourself with others enthused by your vision, including those who can help make it come alive

We'll unpack the pros and cons of each. We want to pursue the best conciliatory option, especially the easiest one to reach that can promise to produce the quickest result in with the least investment of limited resources.

Transcending the economic divide

This service is all about exploring your best conciliatory options. While leveraging your other options along the way.

  • You learn you can step up to these challenges more resiliently than you likely thought you could.

  • You learn to surround yourself with others who can help you reach your potential.

  • You learn to ask for support to carry you through the difficult challenges of breaking out economically on you own.

 

Most of all, you learn you're worth it!

As a budding entrepreneur myself, I've spent years exploring economic development. And now with this service I am doing it. There's so much to learn we can learn it together. Here's two samples of my learning to overcome economic barriers.

  1. DreamsSTARTUP. I drafted a program for monitoring the soft skills necessary for any economic development. If one's startup failed, their documented soft skills could be turned into a letter of recommendation, to seek better employment. 

  2. TransJobSearch. Prior to working on this website, I created an ambitious site intended to help trans people find meaningful income streams. All that remains are some tutorial videos on YouTube, but I absorbed plenty of insight for how to take advantage of today's evolving economic opportunities. 

  • This service is about finding the best fit for your specific "transeconomic" need.

  • This service is results-oriented aiming for immediate improvements.

  • This service can boost your public value in ways others others can invest in.

Because this is not psychotherapy. It's psychosociotherapy.

If what you're doing has unraveled, 

consider this new path less traveled.

Choose the easy path, and life gets hard.

Easy avoids the truth of when you erred.

Choose the hard path, and life gets easy.

The harder path gets easier when shared.

 

Your transeconomic psychosociotherapy

Psychotherapists use what's called a treatment plan to spell out what can be expected in the change process. We'll use a similar tool. But it will focus on changing your relation dynamics in your favor, and ultimately theirs, instead of expecting you to adjust to your dysfunctional situations.

This tool will outline the flow of service. Each session centers around one of three things while integrating them all.

Boosting your resilience
Growing your support
Focusing on your target

Sharpening your resiliency to the discomforts of economic pressures from creditors and debt collectors.

Developing your social support capital to support your passionate purpose in life (such as help you create it) to eventually attract the support of those who likely contributed to your economic troubles

Working toward your goal of earned economic liberty

FIT (1 session)

I as the Provider will meet with you, the Key Client.

Using email, SMS text & chat, we'll determine if this service is a good fit for you. Or if your economic vision might be better served elsewhere. If a good "fit" you are then verified to proceed.

INTAKE Your Cause (2 - 4 sessions)

We first build your foundation. We'll get a baseline of where you're at emotionally with economic despair. Then send you emails to get you started, including instructions how to download the VSee app onto your computer or mobile device. When ready to proceed, you will be qualified to "go psychosocial."

INCLUDE Your Champion (3 - 5 sessions)

Now we go psychosocial. You welcome aboard your "champion" supporter to the process. Your passionate life purpose gets a boost. Your champion may oversee details so you can focus more on the larger picture. And keep you accountable to making this happen.

INSPIRE Your Team (4 - 6 sessions)

Your psychosocial web expands. Supporters climb on board to support and test your idea. They help you manage the extra tasks that pop up too often. They too keep you accountable to make this happen. They have a stake in your success.

INVOLVE Your Sponsors (TBD)

Attract interest and invite investment from those you once likely viewed as part of the problem. Give them reason to match $-for-$ your current weekly investment into your economic development. Grow your vision like you've probably never grown it before.

Payment options

Once ready to commit after being verified, you can lock in a slot on our calendar for only $5. You pay the balance in full prior to starting the scheduled session. Talk with us if you aren't able to make online payments. We have an option for you.

As you bring aboard your supporters you will notice the price increases. They share the bulk of that increase. Check the Plans & Pricing page for our variety of options. Keep in mind we track all payments as an investment toward you cause, which we use to compel prospective sponsors that you are a worthy investment.

Scheduling your first weekly session

Check our availability to lock in a spot on the calendar right for you. Consider a time that fits your champion. Your supporters will later join, so consult with them when at that step. 

To start, schedule a FIT session. Before committing to this process, feel free to contact us with any general questions, using the form below. Let this journey begin.

BEFORE booking a free consultation, perhaps we can answer your more general questions by email.

We never share your email address with third parties. We're too busy being psychosocial.

We're unlikely to solve our specific problems with the same level of generalizing that created them.

Adversarial justice forces us to fit into convenient categories that pit one people's needs against another's. The needs themselves don't care about our oversimplifying adversarial beliefs. What we call conflicts are those needs having their way.

Reality is what happens when our beliefs get busy making other plans. Anxiety and depression are real. Far more real than the divisive categories of adversarial justice meant to keep things simple.

We prefer options to not only resolve your neglected needs but also to hold others accountable to responsibly resolve theirs.

 

Your "cis-judicial" situation

adversarial justice system

YOU:

wrongly convicted

Stuck inside the judicial divide

So you've been wrongly convicted and trapped by the collateral consequences of a criminal conviction. Once accused, you know, your credibility is shot. Your persistent claims of innocence fits into their stereotypes of criminals. So you're shamed into silence. Right?

Once out of prison you can at least take comfort you're no longer in prison. But as a second class citizen cut off from equal opportunities, that may prove to be small comfort.

Your earning potential has been compromised. Background checks keep you from finding meaningful employment. You're forced to rely on others, adding to your sense of despair. All because of an adversarial process in the name of fact finding!

You can't afford to hire a lawyer. Perhaps you've contacted an innocence project and found they are already overwhelmed processing wrongful conviction claims. So you struggle to get by, in quiet desperation, one painful day after painful day.

Yes, I've painted a depressing picture for you, and it comes close to pulling at some scabs. Is that pain trying to tell you to rethink your options? Are you ready to move beyond old generalizations about justice to face all of your options?

TransJudicial support

Receive team support for your compelling claim of criminal innocence.

Your available options

Your avoidance options to avoid further pain

You can

  • continue avoiding law enforcement officials, to avoid any risk of being re-traumatized

  • keep telling yourself you should be a rugged individual and just accept being misjudged as a criminal

  • continue being sidelined by this miscarriage of justice;

  • continue relying on others for financial and other supports

  • get used to the anxiety and depression that by now is your norm.

 
Your adversarial options to relieve your pain

You can

  • write to as many organizations and lawyers as possible to request pro bono help;

  • invite investigative journalism students to take an interest in your story;

  • contact as many innocence projects who say they help with cases like yours;

  • file a complaint with the EEOC;

  • write to your local reps and Congresspersons.

 
Your conciliatory options to resolve needs behind the pain

You can

  • appreciate law enforcement's challenging role to serve our need to intervene in moments of interpersonal violence, while questioning their impact on our other needs

  • contact each employer you where you seek employment to consider the context of your case;

  • contact each consumer reporting agency these employers use for background checking you to consider the context of your case;

  • compare your case to those already exonerated to come up with an estimated likelihood that your innocence claim is reliable;

  • propose a bill that would compel public records to include your compelling claim of innocence.

We'll unpack the pros and cons of each. We want to pursue the best conciliatory option, especially the easiest one to reach that can promise to produce the quickest result in with the least investment of limited resources.

TransJudicial specifics to resolve needs

 

Reliance upon popular generalizations easily blind us from relevant specifics.

"Prosecutor" and "defendant" are generalized categories that fail to capture the nuances of our full judicial potential.

We generally trust these general categories to go easy on our cognitive load. Life is too busy to get into every detail. But now we must.

You can either ease your mounting pain by further relying on these arbitrary divisive categories of "guilt" and "innocence." And overlook how you're heavily involved with both.

Or you can resolve your specific judicial needs with supported endurance of their

Transcending the judicial divide

This service is all about exploring your best conciliatory options. While leveraging your other options along the way.

  • You learn you can step up to these challenges more resiliently than you likely thought you could.

  • You learn to surround yourself with others who can help you reach your potential.

  • You learn to ask for support to carry you through the difficult challenges of publicly proclaiming your innocence.

 

Most of all, you learn you're worth it!

As a wrongly convicted person myself (consequence of coming out as transgender in the early 1990s while living in a religiously conservative community), I've poured over each of these options.

The last two I now offer to work on with you.

  1. Innocence Claim Estimate. You provide information about your case, entered into a spreadsheet that calculates the level of reliability of your claim based on similar cases already exonerated. It also kicks out the amount you could be eligible to receive upon exoneration, under your state's compensation statute, if it has one.

  2. Informed Decisions Act. This bill is carefully worded to be conciliatory. Without condemning criminal justice staff for its costly mistakes, it asserts the problem of unjust discrimination against the wrongly convicted could be eased by publicly providing more information, specifically the context correlating with exonerated cases. 

  • This service is about finding the best fit for your specific "transjudicial" need.

  • This service is results-oriented aiming for immediate improvements.

  • This service can boost your public value in ways others others can invest in.

Because this is not psychotherapy. It's psychosociotherapy.
