Being a human is hard. Our world is sick. Our global culture doesn’t value our authenticity or our strength. How do we go from surviving to thriving? How do we free ourselves so that we can shine fully? How can we use our gifts so that we feel effective? How can we have relationships that truly nourish us? How can we feel connected to the flow of nature and the universe? How can we come to love and honor ourselves completely?
Everything inside of me sings when I support someone in their process of growth. The moment when I see a person’s body soften and they say something that is really really true. That is what I live for. My heart opens in the face of that honesty and it gives me hope that we humans are moving towards wholeness and health.
Fertilize Your Heart is about turning over the compost of our suffering into healthy soil that makes things grow.
I have been studying the art of Tarot for twenty years, since I was twelve. When I was a child, my pretend games often incorporated magic. As I came of age, that early wonder developed into curiosity about the unconscious, archetypes, spirituality, and service work. I went to school for Somatic Psychotherapy and practiced in the field for three years. I draw heavily from this experience in my work with Tarot.
My style is present, collaborative, embodied, and oriented towards personal growth. I am an intuitive empath. I want to support you to be your true self.

Code of Ethics
The purpose of this work is to co-create meaning and transformative possibility for the client. This work is not meant to take the place of mental health care, and should not be treated as such. As appropriate, I will refer out and/or indicate when mental health services would be useful to the client.
I am not a fortune teller, psychic, or medium. I am an intuitive empath with a background in counseling. This can serve your personal growth journey. You will Not be told your future.
Tarot readings function best when they are a collaboration. The more you put in, the more you will receive from our time together.
All readings are confidential. I will not divulge your personal information to any third party, nor will I use it for any reason other than the tarot reading at hand. I will break confidentiality only when there is a danger to self or others, when required by law, or at client’s request.
You are the keeper of your own truth. I could not possibly know you better than you know yourself and will not claim to. Please take what is useful and leave the rest. I respect and honor your free will. Any decisions or actions taken as a result of a tarot reading are the sole responsibility of the client.
I will stay within my scope of practice. I will not offer any advice that I am not professionally qualified to offer.
I am committed to honesty, integrity, cultural competency, and compassion in my life and work.
My intention is to prioritize the well-being of my client and their community, and to do no harm.
I do not make, break, or remove curses or “bad energy”.
I will never refuse a client a consultation based on origin, background, nationality, race, orientation, religion, ability, gender, age, sexuality, status, education, class, or identity.
We cannot be assured that we will have an accurate or fair reading for a person who is not present. When asking questions about third parties, we will frame questions to be about the client and in service of the relationship between the client and the absent person(s).
I will represent my qualifications and experience honestly.
It is ok in certain cases to be under the influence of alcohol during a reading. It is not useful whatsoever to be drunk for one. I do not give readings to drunk people.
I recognize my client’s right to refuse or terminate consultations at any time regardless of prior consent.
I work with minors and do not require parental consent, as sometimes it is not easily acquired (at large events for instance). My confidentiality policy changes with minors. I will inform guardians of things that come up in a reading if it will serve the interests of the child. I also value the agency of all people, including children, and so will use discretion and discernment in these cases.
