Client Agreement and Disclosure Statement
Thank you for your interest in working with me as a client either in person or at a distance using the phone/Skype/email, whichever is applicable. I am providing you with the following information so you can make an informed choice about your decision to engage my services. Please read this information carefully and let me know if there is any part you do not understand.
SERVICES OFFERED/THEORETICAL APPROACH
I offer my services as a complementary and alternative health care practitioner under Colorado’s Natural Health Care Consumer Protection Act. I work with clients in a number of areas, including, overall health, life issues, business consulting, and energy and spiritual wellness. My goal is to help my clients align with their highest potential using intuitive skills to help turn struggles and challenges into new learning and growth opportunities. My focus with a client is to work with the whole person, using a variety of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches. The CAM approaches I use primarily in my practice are based on the newly emerging field of Energy Medicine and include, intuitive wellness coaching, intuitive and past life readings, and energy-based consciousness techniques (collectively the “Energy Methods”). You have the option of using individually or collectively any of the Energy Methods I offer as part of our work together.
The Energy Methods are designed to assess where the body’s energies are blocked or not in harmony and then correct and balance the flow of these energies thereby aligning the body’s energies to boost health, vitality, and restore the body’s natural energies. With the Energy Methods, I also assess the energetic impact of how thoughts, beliefs, and emotions can influence the health and well-being of the client. The prevailing premise of the Energy Methods is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and subtler energies are important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering well-being. With any of the approaches I use, I will encourage you to ask questions and provide feedback to me during the session as to how you are feeling and what you are experiencing. If you ever have questions or concerns about the nature of the theories and methods I use, please feel free to ask me for further resources or references.
Although the Energy Methods appear to have promising emotional, spiritual and physical health benefits, they have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, the Energy Methods may be considered experimental and the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risks and benefits, are not fully known.
NATURE OF THE RELATIONSHIP
Please be advised I offer my services solely as complementary and alternative health care practitioner. You should discuss any recommendations I make during your session with your primary care physician, obstetrician, physician, obstetrician, gynecologist, oncologist, cardiologist, pediatrician, or other board-certified physician. The Energy Methods are self-regulated and the State of Colorado does not license, certify, or register complementary and alternative health care practitioners. While I have extensive experience as a healing arts practitioner, I’m not a psychologist, psychotherapist, physician, or other licensed health care professional. Under Colorado’s Natural Health Care Consumer Protection Act, I can offer my services subject to the requirements and restrictions that are fully described therein.
OUTCOME EXPECTATIONS/RISKS & BENEFITS
While clients report positive outcomes in using my services, please note that it’s impossible to guarantee any specific results and we don’t know how you will personally respond to using the Energy Methods. However, we will work together to achieve the best possible results for you. Participation in sessions can result in a number of benefits to you, including improvement and/or resolution of the specific concerns that led you to seek my services. While the Energy Methods are considered gentle and non-invasive, it’s possible in our sessions together, or on your own between sessions, to experience some physical discomfort or emotional distress that can be perceived as negative. It is also possible to experience some emotional distress and physical discomfort related to stressful experiences you may have had earlier in your life. You agree to promptly inform me if you experience any emotional distress and/or physical discomfort during our work together, particularly between our sessions. If appropriate, I can help refer you to an appropriate professional health care provider for further assistance.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When using the Energy Methods you understand I’m not “diagnosing” or “treating” the physical body, which is the domain of the medical field and other allied health care professionals. You understand there is a distinction between “healing” using the Energy Methods and the practice of medicine or any other licensed health care practice. Further, you understand the services I offer and the use of the Energy Methods are not intended to be a substitute for medical or psychological treatment and they do not replace the services of health care professionals. You agree and understand it is your responsibility to consult with your health care provider for any specific health care problems. Further, you understand I may suggest you contact your professional health care provider if I believe it’s advisable. In addition, you understand that any information shared during our sessions is not to be considered a recommendation that you stop seeing any of your health care professionals or using prescribed medication, if any, without consulting with your health care professional, even if after working together it appears and indicates that such medication or treatment is unnecessary. I am covered by liability insurance applicable to any injury caused by an act or omission by me in providing my complementary and alternative health care services pursuant to this Agreement.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
I have a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree from the University of Colorado’s Business School. I have completed the Clairvoyant Program at Psychics Horizons and have studied a variety of energy techniques, including Reiki.
