On a fateful day in 1985 I experienced my first professional astrology reading. As the astrologer brought the intriguing shapes and symbols on the circular diagram to life, I instinctively knew there was a system to untangling it's mystery and immediately resolved to learn it. Thus began over thirty years of astrological study and spiritual contemplation. The study of astrology awakened the mystic in me, helped me form an understanding of the Divine, the Universe and my place in it; an understanding that continues to grow and evolve and is what I consider to be the path to finding my way Home.
By the mid-90's my search for a connection to the Divine found expression in feminist spirituality and the practice of Wicca. I learned about the elements of magick and how to conduct ritual in the Reclaiming tradition at their week long summer intensives. I continue to study the ancient Goddess tradition, Shamanism and related practices to this day.
Personal experiences along with spiritual study helped me recognize the call of the healer. Seeking to anchor the potential for personal growth inherent in the self-knowledge gained through the tool of astrology, I earned a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work in 1993. As a mental health therapist, I worked with adolescents, adults and families struggling with a range of life challenges including substance abuse and related issues in a psychiatric hospital and later in private practice.
In 2000 I put my clinical practice aside to raise a family and help run a family business. All the while I remained a student of the stars, shared my knowledge with friends, family and those for whom I read astrology charts. I worshiped the Goddess primarily as a solo practitioner and indulged in countless readings with many talented astrologers, psychic-mediums and healers, all of whom I consider to be teachers along my spiritual journey.
Currently I am immersed in the development of my livestream, Spirit Throw Me A Bone and deepening my understanding of astrology as an ancient practice.
All roads lead to the heart and I am blessed and honored by all those who share their path with me. Click on the links on this page to find out more and join me in this most excellent adventure finding our way Home!
