ETHICs, POLICIES, disclaimer, and terms
Please read this page before sending payment and booking a reading. This will help ensure clear communication and satisfaction for both of us. Thank you!
ETHICS AND BUSINESS POLICIES
No matter your sexual orientation, gender identity, racial identity, ethnicity, cultural identity, religion, beliefs, physical ability, socioeconomic status, social class, age, etc., I will respect you and hold space for you. All are welcome here.
Your reading will be treated with the utmost respect for your confidentiality.
I strive for transparency with all of my clients. No smoke and mirrors, no parlor tricks. You have the right to ask questions about how I am deciphering the current information within our allotted reading time. You also have the right to ask for more clarification should something be unclear. It is your time, you paid for it, and you have the right to understand what is going on. However, please try not to spend too much time asking questions about my process so that our time is properly focused on your reading, and so that my focus doesn’t dissipate. For more information about my tarot reading processes, please see the “How a Session Works," "Tips for Getting the Best out of your Reading," and "FAQ" subcategories under the “About the Process” section.
I will be honest and upfront with you about my abilities, and what I can and cannot sense or intuit for you. At all times I will endeavor to present myself to you responsibly, and with integrity.
The cards will likely advise you on certain courses of action to take, but that does not mean I am telling you what to do. That is not my role. Your decisions are 100% your own, and I do not, and will not, impede the free will of others. To do so is the direct opposite of the client's empowerment, which is a key component of my business intention. I advise, but ultimately your decisions are your own.
No single reader is perfect for every single client. On rare occasions, I may encounter a client with whom things just don’t seem to “click.” Should you be one of those clients, I will do my best to discern that as quickly as possible so as to not waste your time, and I will refer you onward to several other trustworthy and ethical readers.
Please be certain you have availability within my published business hours before booking an appointment, to ensure I will have the availability to provide the reading you seek.
If you wish to see me, I leave the initiation of that connection to you. I do not and will not personally solicit my clients for business, not now, and not ever.
I am happy to do a reading on the following, and other related ethical topics:
- Family dynamics
- Financial outlooks
- Personal betterment and spiritual seeking
I will NOT do a reading on the following, and other related unethical topics:
- Lottery numbers
- Spying on your ex
- Who's your baby's father
- When and how you are going to die
Due to the nature of my schedule and balancing two careers, I do not answer “quick follow-up questions” after the reading has concluded. I simply do not have the time. Please be sure to ask me whatever you need during our session, and respect my time as I respect yours. If you have follow-up questions, please consider purchasing a follow-up reading.
If you are disrespectful, obnoxious, or behave in a threatening manner, your reading will be instantly terminated, and you will not receive a refund. I do not tolerate having any displaced anger projected upon me. I am not a stand-in for the person or people in your life that aggravate you. Treat me with respect as I will treat you, otherwise our time together will be immediately ceased.
I reserve the right to refuse service, for any reason.
I do not read for clients under the age of 18. With parental consent and the child's assent, I will read for clients ages 16 and up, provided that the parent is present for the reading.
Should you need to cancel or reschedule your reading, I require 24-hour notice, as is standard practice of most professional businesses. If you cancel before the 24-hour window, your money shall be refunded. If you reschedule, your payment will be applied toward your next appointment. Bear in mind, I will only allow one reschedule per appointment, so please be absolutely certain your rescheduled time will work. Failure to provide 24-hour notice will result in forfeiture of the refunding of your payment.
24-hour or longer notice of cancellation is the only instance in which I will provide refunds. So please be absolutely certain you want to book an appointment with me before you click that "Buy Now" button.
Life does happen, and I understand that. That being said, if you are running late for your appointment, the onus is upon you to communicate to me your lateness. A quick phone call or email is all that I need, and should only take a moment of your time. Provided that you communicate with me, I will either honor the remainder of your appointment time, or allow you to reschedule, depending on the immediacy of your need. Again, please be aware that I only allow one reschedule per appointment. Failure to provide any communication will automatically result in your receiving whatever is left of your time slot.
If you are a no-show, with no communication to me, I will not read for you again. This may seem harsh, but consider that is not only disrespectful, I could have scheduled another client in your place. I value your time. Please value mine.
All readings (phone, internet-based, and in-person) require payment in advance of your appointment. Credit cards and PayPal are both accepted through my online "Book a Reading" page. You may also mail a check in advance to my office at Alternatives Holistic Health and Wellness Center, provided that it will arrive before your appointment time. For in-person readings, I also accept cash or check, or I can process your credit card with my Square at the start of your reading. If you fail to provide payment or provide me with a bad check, I will not read for you again.
Thank you for honoring my policies, and for your business!
