My tarot / I Ching readings offer insights into the present path and how to best navigate life from the highest self. My style comes with warm humor, considerate sensitivity, and a direction toward positive potentials.
I have been reading in public since my professional start in Jackson Square, New Orleans. My event readings can range from a quick 3 minutes, to a more in-depth 15 minutes long. After the first few people come over for a reading, word of…
I have been reading cards since I was 15 years old, and began my professional career over a decade ago in Jackson Square, New Orleans. I did not expect to be swept into the art of reading cards, life impelled me toward it, and…
We all juggle so much. Even though I didn’t catch all the flying bowling pins this week, I am sitting with a feeling of being deeply satiated with the words, “Good Enough”.

I get intimidated by the idea of success . . . am I ready for my voice to be heard on a wide scale?
And, gosh, isn’t it more important to get some Spring cleaning done anyhow? Yeah, that’s a more immediate necessity . . .
That’s why I find it both ironic and deeply moving that, last week, my friend Dawn dedicated her newly published book, Cracking the Resistance Code, to me!

I have learned -deeply- that everyone is hard on themselves about the same thin
From the successful mid-life leaders, to the uncertain mid-twenties dreamers.
Everyone feels like they’re not doing enough.
Myself included. This week was not a very productive one. I got sick briefly and then couldn’t get back into the groove. You know the story, because it’s normal for all of us.
So my work this week became forgiving and feeling through this sense of failure to relaunch after a head cold.
