About my reading style:

I read in the Romani tradition. Roma are a diasporic ethnic group originally from India circa the 10th century. We are also known as Gypsies, but because it is the slur, it is not the preferred term. Fortune telling is a job that some Roma practice because when early Roma first arrived in Europe from India between the 1300s-1400s, it was the tail end of the Crusades, and they were met with a lot of persecution, which persists. Traditional work, like fortune telling, metal working, animal training, performing, and so on were among the few jobs Roma have been allowed to work for the last several centuries. There are of course exceptions, and things are changing, but segregation is still a very real issue for Roma, especially in Europe, but in other places as well. Fortune telling has been a job on my mother’s side of the family for a very long time, and my grandmother began teaching me when I was 4 or 5. I really love my work, and I feel proud to carry on this lineage.

The way that we approach fortune telling is that it’s a useful tool to see what’s going on around you, and you can use the symbols and signs that arise to help you navigate life going forward. Ultimately, though, nothing is set in stone, things change, you have free will, and you can do whatever you want. My style is also very conversational, so if you wanted to look into a specific situation and offer context or details in order to cut right to it, that’s perfectly welcome.

Tarot cards are ideal to look into what is going on around you now, in the near future, to look into something specific, or if you’re just in the mood of “what do I need to know right now?” Palmistry is more of a zoomed-out, big picture overview of your life, past, present, and future. Personality traits are also part of palm reading. Since we have free-will and can make our own choices, the lines on your palm change over time, but not very quickly. You could get an in-depth palm reading every couple of years, but you could get tarot readings much more often.

My grandmother trained me to be intuitive through hours of practice with the tools, dream interpretation, and what was essentially meditative prayer, though she wouldn’t have called it that. While I allow my intuitive to free-flow while working with clients, which can often bring us to helpful and unexpected places, I don’t claim to be a medium or a psychic. I like to think of my sessions as intuitive, conversational, and goal-oriented. I want to help you shake off what’s holding you back, discover your potential, and move down helpful paths to get you where you want to be.

Ritual is part of my daily life, and I’m a big believer in the magic of focused action, even if it’s as simple as lighting a candle with intention and taking a few steadying breaths before starting the day. If desired, I’m happy to suggest rituals that might suit you. I have a 200 hour Kripalu Yoga Teacher Certification, and a Trauma Sensitive Yoga Certification, so I have experience with meditation and movement in ritual. If interested, in my longer, in-person sessions (and sometimes over the phone), we have the option of incorporating some ritual and focused intention into the reading.
