Description: Performance consulting is a partnership (defined as an alliance, not a legal business partnership) between the Consultant and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential.
1. Client is responsible for creating and implementing his/her own physical, mental and emotional well-being, decisions, choices, actions and results. As such, the Client agrees that the Consultant is not and will not be liable for any actions or inaction, or for any direct or indirect result of any services provided by the Consultant. Client understands consulting is not therapy and does not substitute for therapy if needed, and does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical disease.
2. Client understands that consulting is not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, mental, medical or other qualified professionals and will seek independent professional guidance for such matters. If Client is currently under the care of a mental health professional, Consultant will recommend that Client inform the mental health care provider.
3. Client agrees to communicate honestly, be open to feedback and assistance and create the time and energy to participate fully in the program.

The Consulting Program will be conducted through in-person, internet or telephone meetings and the Consultant will be available to Client by text, e-mail and voicemail in between scheduled meetings as defined by the Consultant. The Consultant may also be available for additional time, per Client’s request for additional fees agreed upon by the Consultant and Client (for example, reviewing documents, reading or writing reports, engaging in other client related services outside of consulting hours).
