Mission and Ethics

My Mission

My mission is to uphold the highest ethical standards in all Readings rendered. My practice is based on the ancient teachings of use of oracle cards as a tool to help clients to tap into their intuition, spirituality and/or creativity. 

My ultimate mission is to empower my clients to trust in their intuition and help them to move past fears and limiting beliefs, and toward compassion for themselves and others. 

Important Information About My Readings

Readings, all email exchanges, and mentoring that we share are kept completely confidential. You are more than welcome to share your experience and information regarding your reading with others if you choose, but I will always keep your reading private. The the only exception being that I may share insight gained as an example in a video, article, interview or blog post- and in that case, your name and specific details would be changed to protect your privacy.

My readings and mentoring is an advice-based and contemplative approach, and is prescriptive, not predictive.

Mentoring and oracle readings are intended to be a helpful and fun tool to spark personal growth and self-discovery. You always have the gift of free will to change the direction the cards or Reading might be indicating. While it can feel therapeutic, I am not a therapist. Please consult an expert when necessary. Services are not a replacement for professional psychological advice, medical, or legal advice, etc.

Please consider the Readings that Barbara provides to be used only as a guide for self-discovery and personal growth to process in your own time and at your own comfort level. My readings aim to empower you and be in charge of your own life. My readings can’t and won’t determine your future – you have free will to determine what your future holds.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Once reading is done and sent to you, I don’t provide any refunds. Oracle readings and Intuitive Guidance are spiritual in nature, therefore I can’t guarantee the accuracy.
