One session or weekly: whatever you need!
During each session we'll use a variety of psychic
methods, shamanic practices & eco-therapuetic processes,
depending on your preferences, needs, and direction from
Spirit. Some of these are explained here:
Clairvoyance: Clairvoyance means seeing clearly.
It is the ability to access and decipher visual information
through extrasensory means in the form of images or pictures.
It does not involve the eyes, but rather the infinite
universe behind the eyes. Images arise as if watching
a movie. Sometimes the images are quite literal, other
times highly symbolic. My particular technique in working
with clients is to share the images as they arise and
discuss them, look deeper at them together, and respond
to questions. I'll also invite and guide you to look clairvoyantly
along with me: clairvoyance is not a gift of of a few,
but the birthright of many -- you may not know you have
this ability because you have never tried to use it!
Clairsentience means feeling clearly. During a reading
(often before you even show up for the appointment!) I
will feel what you are feeling on the deepest levels of
your psyche. We all have many "subpersonalities",
many sides of ourselves, but we are usually only conscious
of what is happening on the level of ego. During a session,
when I can feel emotions that have been blocked or repressed,
and I give voice to those emotions, it opens you to feeling
(in a safe and nurturing environment -- that is essential!)
and most importantly, releasing those feelings. Pent up
emotions lead to physical illness, mental disorders, depression,
anxiety, substance abuse, etc. and block people from moving
forward with their dream, goals & healthy relationships.
Seeing and naming the emotion results in a tremendous
release and instant healing.
Dreamtending: This is a powerful and
alchemical method of dream re-entry, soul exploration,
healing & empowerment refined by Dr.
Steven Aizenstat, my teacher and founding president
Graduate Institute. In this process we utilize depth
psychological processes and shamanic methods which may
include association, amplification, dream council, imaginal
dialog and ceremonial dream healing.
Dreambody Process Work: This method grows out
of the teaching of Arnold and Amy Mindell, Carlos Castañeda,
Carl Jung & modern Physicists. The body has an ancient
wisdom and knows its own path towards healing. We'll work
with the body in the way that is most effective &
comfortable to you to decipher the hidden messages in
the body, release pain and pent up emotions, and move
into what Mindell calls "The Big U" -- your
strongest & best sense of self that has the wisdom
and confidence to accomplish anything!
Medicine Wheel: Almost all indigenous
people across the world & time used some form of the
medicine wheel to symbolize and remind us of nature --
our inner nature, as well as outer nature. The Wheel is
a circle, reflecting the planet, the Universe, Unity,
Oneness, Connection, Movement, Wholeness, all of Creation,
the unformed. The Four directions within the Circle form
a square, representing the four seasons and their qualities,
aspects and influences. This ancient system of knowledge
has unlimited modern day application. I often open the
session by invoking the energies of the wheel, and then
return to it throughout the session as a tool of balancing
Tarot Reading: Tarot cards are a tremendous tool
for reminding us that God/Spirit is present and here to
give us guidance when we seek it. The Tarot can be used
then as a form of communication with higher realms, a
jumping off point for clairvoyance and clairsentience,
and to balance the psyche when combined with the medicine
wheel. If you are seeking specific answers about particular
directions to take in your life, or meditations for integration
or healing, the tarot is very effective, and shockingly

order for a person to thrive, that person’s spirit
must be nurtured through recognition and validation. Clairvoyance
is actually an ability of the spirit. A clairvoyant accesses
information by connecting with a client's spirit or the
Universal Spirit and then bringing this into the physical
and mental realms. For many people, the first time they
feel as if they have truly been "seen," recognized,
understood and respected for who they really are is during
a clairvoyant reading. To give this gift to a fellow human
being is one of the most rewarding aspects of performing
