I have been reading for myself and others since 2005 and offering Tarot readings online since 2010. I also read for the Biddy Tarot Community for a time and received high ratings for all of my free readings.
In addition, I have studied, each to a certain extent Gnosticism, mystical Judaism (The Tree of Life), auras, chakras, color therapy, mythology, astrology, numerology and the meanings of the cards as taught by The Golden Dawn.
I've studied great authors, such as Anthony Lewis, Rachel Pollack, Mary Greer, Nancy Garen, Joan Bunning, and, more recently, Benebell Wen.
In 2007, I was Board Certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner of Natural Healing by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners specializing in natural remedies. You can read more about my qualifications here.
Are You Psychic?
I admit to moments of psychicness, but my answer to the question is "No." I prefer not to place myself in that category. However, I am empathic. Meaning, I pick up on the feelings of others, even when they may not be aware of what they are themselves, even from a distance. The bible calls this the gift of discernment. However, one need not be psychic to have a good grasp of Tarot meanings and associations.
What Types of Questions May I Ask?
Since virtually every choice we make in life affects our wellness on several different levels, you may ask any question you like about anything that concerns you. I do not, however, fortune tell. I won't reveal lottery numbers, specific dates, times for events, etc.
It is unethical for any Tarot consultant to pry for extensive details once your question is asked, but starting out with a strongly phrased question or concern can be beneficial in providing a more illuminating consultation experience. It is important to focus and be as specific as possible about your inquiry, so as to render the most effective suggestions during and after your consultation.
Question: Am I going to be married?
Better Question: Am I going to marry Paul within the next year or so?
When you request a TCL Holistic Tarot Traditional Consultation you may, instead, request a general reading where no question is asked at all. General readings provide your intuition opportunity to tell you what you most need to know, objectively speaking.
Do I Need to Schedule an Appointment for My Consultation?
No. Never. Your consultation is provided online, via email, within 48 hours.
What Will My Consultation Entail?
Your TCL Holistic Tarot Consultation will be sent to you, via email, as an illustrated PDF file attachment (like an e-book), containing your consultation results, including answers, insights and suggestions, and possible outside resources, based on the information the cards in your reading provided. which you may download and read at your leisure.
What is Your Fee?
My consultation fee for each new question or topic of concern is $47, regardless of how many cards are used or how long it takes to complete your reading.
Should a new concern arise during that 1 month period a separate payment of $47 will be required. However, there is no additional fee for follow up emails on the same topic of concern for a period of 1 calendar month.
A payment of $47 will be required, even for the same topic of concern, after 1 calendar month’s time has expired.
How Long Does it Take to Receive an Online Answer?

My Tarot Do's & Don'ts
I Do NOT Dabble in Occult Activities Inviting Spirits
I never dabble in occult activities that invite spirits, such as seances, the use of Quija boards or prayer. The use of Tarot cards NEVER involves calling on spirits to help answer questions. It is not standard practice, at all, and to do so and can cause spiritual harm. I also avoid the subject of demons and exorcism, so please don't ask about these things. Just trying to keep things all 'light and love' around here.
I DO NOT Tell Fortunes.
I don't tell fortunes in the sense of predicting your future. While Tarot can certainly provide likely results, it doesn't decide your fate. You do. My consultations serve only reveal the meanings of the cards revealed in your reading as associated with your question or concern, which magnifies your own intuition.
I DO Use My Gift of Empathy In Determining Where to Shed the Most Light
Tarot is a tool used for guidance and confirmation. However, much of the time my empathic nature is what helps me to discern issues at stake and to come up with possible solutions for you to consider.
I DO Supply Tarot Remedies According to Card Correspondences
Each of the 78 cards in a deck of Tarot correspond to certain feelings, situations, emotional and physical ailments, as well as potential remedies and cures. Tarot's remedial correspondences will be pointed out according to your question or concern.
