Reading tarot is one of my most favorite things in the world to do (my massage therapy business being equally my favorite!)
And when you book online and look at my bio there you will see that it is all about my massage business. I find it easier to book tarot readings in between my massage sessions so that I don't get overbooked or overwhelmed and that helps me give the best to all my clients.
My style is less fortune telling and more life coaching (although I am not opposed to a good old fortune telling reading as long as you know you still have options!) I use tarot to get results, make changes and to keep people aware of where they need to aim their energy in order for you to make great changes in your life. I do ask questions from my clients for clarification and I am a firm believer that the more the client brings to the table the better the reading they receive. Playing the "you tell me" game as a client is such a waste of time for both of us.
Want to know more? Keep reading for my tell all biography! My past: I began my love of tarot when I was 16 years old upon finding a Victorian looking deck in a Vermont store while on an outing with my family. I knew then and there that I HAD to have them. Needless to say I wasn't able to get them that day but I made my boyfriend (now lucky husband) bring me back up there and get that deck. It was the beginning of a long love affair, with the cards and the man.
My present: I have been reading cards in person for ages but started reading them on Zoom for clients that are not in the immediate area. I am in Mediumship School with Amy Utsman's Whole Medium Academy. Amazing school. I recently received my diploma to become a Certified Sound Healer and I am trying new ways to bring that together with card readings.
In the past I was a mentor for Colette Baron-Reid's Personal Mastery Oracle Class. What a great experience assisting people in finding their own paths using Colette's Wisdom of the Oracle cards. Such great people in that community. I am also a certified oracle reader through her Shared Wisdom class. I am also a certified Soul Coaching Oracle reader with Denise Linn, and am still working on my Elemental Space Clearing certification with her.
I have taken numerous psychic and mediumship classes to compliment my tarot readings. Although I once has a medium tell me that I don't need to use the cards to do my readings, I just love what they bring to the table in regards to the client seeing what they can see in the cards. I believe that your intuition is just as important as mine.
I am also an associate Life Coach with the Empowerment Coach Academy. I am still working my way through these classes and they bring such a different skill to my tarot readings.
I have a total addiction to taking classes and learning new skills. I guess there could be worse addictions....
I specialize in massage for anxiety and stress disorders so it just made sense to carry that theme over to my tarot readings. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder with Panic Disorder and I have used tarot on a daily basis for years to keep me focused, centered and to help me stop the overthinking of situations (which always get me in trouble).
They are a great solution oriented tool that helps because anxiety sufferers have a tendency to focus on the problems and not the solutions. A reading can help us step back, take a breath and readjust how we look at a situation.
I love how the tarot can alert us when we are headed in the wrong direction or when we can expect the unexpected to hit us, and how we may be able to dodge that wave. And if we can't dodge it, than we can change our responses to it.
Tarot is the Anxiety King or Queen's best friend. (When we stress less we have less fight or flight reaction, and when that happens our immune system boosts. Who knew that tarot may even help you stay healthy!)
My future: I have taught how to read tarot in the past and will continue to pursue this in the future. Although I do this only in person now, I may offer online classes in the future, who knows! I am also working on a class on how to increase Intuition. Being able to harness your intuition is a life skill that I believe should be taught in school at a young age.
I am also hoping to incorporate more mediumship into my readings, and maybe moving on to doing stand alone mediumship readings as my skill increases.
I will be introducing new offerings as I am inspired. I am planning on a membership for the General Wellness Monthly Forecast, where your personalized reading is delivered straight to your email box. I am pondering a membership for New Moon and Full Moon readings on a monthly membership as well. All is good time.....
And as always I will take every course and read every book I can possibly devour to become an even better tarot reader every day.
Just some of my card collection. And I read with all of them, I have an addiction!

My favorite reading partner Tessie, although I suspect she barely tolerates me.
Everything I need to give a great reading. (And I can be a nosy neighbor at the window:) My talented husband made my desk. He is adorable and talented!
