Ethics

I am here to serve my client’s needs.

I treat everyone with equal respect, regardless of race, religion, gender or orientation.

I represent my self and my abilities with honesty and integrity. I believe your future is in your hands and you have free will and the ability to change anything you do not like  in the reading.

I do not solve crimes, pick lottery numbers or locate lost items. I do not predict death dates nor try to diagnose illness. I am not a medium – meaning I do not talk to the dead. If you think you are pregnant, take a pregnancy test as it will be more accurate. If you don’t know who the daddy is, visit The Maury Show. I am not a mind reader.

All readings are confidential. Your information will never be shared with anyone.

I will never call you and bother you.  I will never badger you to come in and get a reading. I do not solicit in any way.

As a matter of policy, I reserve the right to refuse service for any reason.

If I feel your behavior is addictive, I may refuse to read for you.  I do not encourage addiction to psychics, astrologers or tarot readers.

I will not read for anyone under the age of 18 without a parent present.

Policy on lateness and cancellation:  I require a 24 hour notice if you cannot make it to your appointment – if you do not give me sufficient notice, your fee for the appointment will be forfeited.  It takes only ONE MINUTE to call or email me to reschedule.  I expect you to extend the same courtesy to me that you would to your doctor, hairdresser, lawyer, etc.

I have a VERY strict no-show policy.  If you pull a no show, you do not get another appointment with me, ever (yes, it’s hardcore but that’s how I roll). Understand that when you do not show or call, I cannot make that time available for another client.  It is YOUR responsibility to keep track of your appointment.
