UPDATED CONSULTATION CONTRACT MAY 2020
Although I am a licensed psychologist in the states of Pennsylvania and California, the consultation services that I am providing you do not fall under my practice as a licensed psychologist. Therefore, I am not practicing in my role as a licensed psychologist with you nor am I practicing psychology as it is defined by law in the state of California.
I will not diagnose you nor will I treat psychological or medical disorders. I am offering you consultation in your self-development, support in your spiritual evolution, intuitive readings of your energy field, subtle energy work, and, if appropriate, mentoring in the practice of the healing arts. You are free to discontinue your work with me at any time. You are free to participate or not as you wish in any of the workshops I offer subject to my approval and any pre-requisites that may be necessary for attending.
