A bit about me
My educational and professional pursuits are born out of a life-long love for psychology, philosophy, interpersonal communication, activism, spirituality and mysticism, all of which I use to inform my astrological interpretation and counseling. Compassion, curiosity, passion, intuition, intellect, and humor are my guides.
I attract clients who know we are living in profound times, and seek to utilize the wisdom of astrology, and everyday magic, for evolving individual and collective consciousness.

I strive to make the language of astrology practical and accessible for those who speak astrologize and for those who don't, and encourage ways to foster a direct and personal relationship with the planets.
What about fate vs destiny?
I'm glad you asked. It's important. An astrological chart is not about your fate etched in stone. At least not the way I see it. Think of it like looking at a clock; the clock doesn’t cause time, it just reflects it.
Your birth chart shows both conditioned patterns (fate) as well as your highest potential (destiny). When you bring awareness and intention to life events, you activate free will and self-determination, and summon your destiny. I like to think of it as the difference between responding to life as opposed to reacting to life.
Astrological counseling is not a psychic reading. However, inherent in the language are techniques that will inform the future and reference the past in order to provide valuable insights and clarity. Knowing your personal astrological 'weather forecast' can help you to trust your process and make better decisions.
