A Bit About My Working Background

IMG_3082.jpg

 

Design is something that I have always had a strong affinity for. My formal education was in Arts & Music. Whether upcycling old items or creating a unique space, there is something about the process of bringing creativity to life that excites me. With over half a lifetime spent as a color consultant and designer, I have developed an eye for transforming small spaces into usable and inviting retreats. I'm able to integrate this passion for design and psychology, by helping clients create an environment that is both functional and harmonious. I am a firm believer that our homes should be sanctuaries that support our journey to wellness. Follow my design page 

I have been counseling individuals for over 12 years using my astrology & tarot practice to delve deep into their tendencies and motivations. I strongly believe that these methods provide profound insights that can lead to a better understanding of oneself and those around us, ultimately leading to a more fulfilled and rewarding life. I work with clients to create a personalized roadmap to help them achieve their goals and live their best life. My style isn't mystical, predictive or magic. The work we do together provides grounded insight and self awareness. My sessions offer validation, encouragement, direction & perspective.

In my corporate professional life I spent 10 years as an Operations Manager and then successively as an HR manager of a large high end catering company in Portland Oregon. I jumped in to all positions and not only found I had a real interest in organic, high quality, whole foods, but also fully embraced what it took to run an upscale unique event. During my time there I developed excellent relationship and communication skills. I was able to incorporate some of my outside the box practices into my everyday working life by helping my employees learn alternative ways of understanding differences & in return how to build better teams.

 

My continued pursuit toward my own personal holistic wellness path led me to complete a program in Nutritional Therapy in 2016 & then go on to graduate from The Institute for Integrative Heath as a Holistic health coach. My extensive knowledge of food as medicine & herbal remedies further allows me to guide individuals towards a healthier and happier lifestyle. By addressing imbalances in the body and recognizing how nutrition plays a role in healing. 

 

My natural tendency toward curiosity & higher learning has connected the dots & allows me to engage deeply with the concept of mind, body, & spirit. It provides me with many tools that help empower my clients to make positive changes and evolve into their best versions. I'm grateful to be on this journey!

I Have A Podcast!

Let's Get Real Astrology Podcast

Astrology has been a long-time passion of mine. It's a tool that has given me quick, incredibly valuable insight into myself and others. It's allowed me to become more compassionate and allowed for a deeper understanding of people and their motivations. Each time I use astrology with a client it opens a meaningful dialogue that provides true connection and can definitely inspire. 

Here are some of the many ways I've helped people using the tool of astrology:​

  • In the workplace to guide team members toward better communication, understanding and to solve conflict.

  • With couples to facilitate an understanding of their tendencies and love languages

  • To help people find true purpose in their careers, and callings. 

  • With parents and children for healing difficult relationships, or to facilitate better understanding of needs, and self expression.
