Ethics, Boundaries, and Agreements

I care about the well-being of my clients and thereby subscribe to the following Code of Ethics.

  • I strive to create safety and trust for all of my clients and I will treat all clients with respect and kindness. I will do my best to be aware of, sensitive to, and continue to educate myself about the many facets and intersections of my clients' identities, including, but not limited to: culture, race, religion, ability, gender identity, age, and sexual orientation.

  • I will represent honestly my education and experience with the tarot, mediumship, and other spiritual/magical practices.

  • The names of clients and information shared or discussed during readings will be kept confidential. All information shared between you and I is confidential but is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like in Medicine or Law). I agree to not disclose any information pertaining to you without your express consent. And I will not disclose your name as a reference without your express consent. Confidential information does not include information that: (a) was in my possession prior to its being furnished by you; (b) is generally known to the public or in your industry; (c) is obtained by me from a third party, without breach of any obligation to Client; (d) is independently developed by me without use of or reference to your confidential information; or (e) that I am required by law to disclose.

Please only implement any and all changes after consulting with your physician and assessing your own risk.

  • I will respect my clients’ right to refuse or terminate their reading at any time.

  • I will answer questions about the reading to the best of my ability. I will tell the truth of what I see, and will respect the wishes of a client who does not want to hear everything I have to say.

  • I will work to better my skills so that I may serve my clients to the best of my ability.

  • I will remind my clients that they are ultimately the ones responsible for what happens in their life. The tarot and other spiritual/magical practices will magnify and complement one's efforts to improve one's life, but are not a replacement for "doing the work" in the mundane world.
