Code of Ethics

The following is the list of ethics and standards I hold myself to and the promises I make to every client, both as an individual and as a member of the various professional organizations of which I am a member:

  1. I will serve the best interests of all clients, conducting my professional activities, reiki, tarot, astrology, and all other services without causing or intending to cause harm, shunning any form of exploitation, and avoiding incompetence and malpractice.
     

  2. I will treat all of my clients with equal respect, regardless of anything to do with them— including, but not limited to, their origin, race, religion, gender, age, sexual preference, orientation, moral differences, health status, criminal background, color, size, shape, how many ears they have, left or right handed, vanilla or chocolate, which leg they put in their pants first. You get the idea.
     

  3. I will keep confidential the names of clients and all information shared or discussed during sessions unless otherwise requested by the client or required by a court of law.
     

  4. I will always respect clients’ right to be self-governing; it is for them to make their own decisions about their lives.
     

  5. I will respect my clients' right to refuse or terminate their sessions at any time, regardless of prior consent.
     

  6. I will recommend that clients consult a licensed professional for advice in a legal, financial, medical, psychological, or any field of any nature that I am not qualified or licensed to provide. If trained in one of these areas, I will differentiate between the service being provided and any professional advice additionally provided.
     

  7. I will honestly represent my qualifications, including educational credentials, levels of certification, and experience.
     

  8. I will operate transparently in dealings with clients by making plain and agreeing to any fees or costs upfront and by ensuring clients understand the nature of the product or service they’re purchasing.
     

  9. I will only provide services for those of majority age (18 in most states) who have sufficient mental capacity and clarity to understand the details of what they are purchasing. Exceptions may be made when a consenting parent or guardian accompanies a willing minor.
     

  10. I will provide services for those who have given permission to be served; I will not attempt to perform any services or read, for unwitting third parties, except on a case-by-case basis when clients appear to have innocent intentions.
     

  11. I will never specifically predict death, disease, or fertility; if they appear during the service and I feel called to do so, I will mention them, but I will never approach a reading looking for them. The cost of misinterpretation would be far too great, and no reader is “100% Accurate 100% of the Time.” (Sorry-not-sorry to all those readers on Etsy who advertise that they are.)
     

  12. I will never identify a customer as being subject to a curse, nor will I ever offer to remove the said curse for a fee.
     

  13. I recognize that my peers in the professional groups I belong to have the same rights and obligations, and I will always respect and honor my co-members.
