Astrology and other esoteric disciplines found me when I was a little girl. In my late twenties (Saturn return), I began pursuing astrology rigorously alongside my artistic work. A skeptical but curious observer- I am endlessly interested in what this ancient art can offer us today. I approach astrology with cautiousness and reverence, and a high degree of sensitivity (especially in my client work), and I devote much time to astrological research, both in studying its origins, and in testing its many applications. I have a deep love for the study of character and calling in people, and the astrological factors at play in these expressions. Some mentors and influences.
With an emphasis in Transpersonal/Depth Psychologies and Expressive Arts, I hold a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree from The Evergreen State College. There I conceived, choreographed, and performed a dance titled: Letting It Go - a piece dealing with the release of trauma and difficult memories. My senior thesis: Investigating the Vessel, was a synthesis of work combining Jungian and post-Jungian studies, sculpture, dream inquiry, and an ongoing movement meditation practice called Authentic Movement.
I served as president and vice president of the Washington State Astrological Association from 2009 to 2012. Located in Seattle, WSAA is one of the longest established astrology organizations in the United States.
Other work I cherish includes providing one-to-one confidential emotional support to women who are living in prison. I have more than fifteen years experience working and volunteering in varying capacities in the field of social services; this includes hospice, physical and occupational therapies, and mental health. I am a professional artist; I work primarily in oil paints and encaustics (beeswax) and I sometimes make jewelry and sculpture in metal or clay.
