Guarantee for purchased goods (not services)
All of the products you purchase from this site come with a 14-day money back guarantee to take the worry out of buying.
I cannot guarantee specific results from the use of my products (I feel that guaranteeing specific results would fly in the face of recognizing each person as a unique individual and would be counter my ethics as a counselor), but I can guarantee your satisfaction.
Try my products for 14 days.
If you are not completely satisfied I will give you your money back.
I'll pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item).
If you are not completely satisfied for whatever reason, just send me an email within 14 days from receipt of the product to take advantage of this guarantee, or simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button.
We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
Just to be overly clear:
- This guarantee is only for my products purchased from this site. It does not cover my products you purchase from other vendors such as Amazon, etc.
- I cannot and do not guarantee specific results from my services or use of my products.
Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
If you haven’t received an expected refund yet, first check your bank account again. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted. Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at email@example.com.
Exchanges (if applicable)We only replace items if they are incorrect compared to the ordered product, defective or damaged. If any of these circumstances apply, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and send your item to: 1013 140th St Ct NW Gig Harbor Washington US 98332.
To return your product, you should mail your product to: Silvers Publishing, 1013 140th St Ct NW, Gig Harbor, Washington US 98332
For returns--other than in cases when the product was physically defective when you received it, or we sent you the wrong thing:
You will be responsible for paying for your own shipping costs for returning your item. Shipping costs are non-refundable. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.
Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.
You should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
