Introducing: Tarot Coaching for Insight and Clarity
Tarot is a powerful tool for making intuitive connections and getting new information about a situation. The use of archetypal imagery and metaphor opens us up to insights where we least expect them.
Because the cards reflect universal experiences, it's like getting 78 possible possible perspectives - more than most people can come up with on their own. Much like coaching, it can be difficult to do a tarot reading for yourself. Your own hopes, fears, and projections get in the way of seeing clearly. That's where I come in!
My Tarot Philosophy
I see the cards as a mirror - a way to glimpse our hidden facets, shadows, and reflections. Tarot is a fundamentally empowering tool that gives us the information we need to make decisions about what to focus on and what to do next.
I don’t do time-based predictions. In other words: you won’t get an answer to “Will I find a new [partner / job / apartment / pet tarantula] in the next six months?” but you will get a better understanding of how to best set yourself up for success (and/or tarantula-ownership) and insight into what might be holding you back. (Scroll down to the bottom of this page for guidance on framing a good question.)
When I do a reading, I will choose a spread for you (unless you request otherwise). A spread is an arrangement of cards that interact with each other and illuminate different facets of your situation. For example, there may be cards that represent you, internal and external factors, strengths, and challenges. I often create custom spreads based on the question.
Want an example? Here’s a reading I did for myself about incorporating more intuition into my business. (PDF)
Getting a Reading from Me

To submit your question: Enter your question in the "Notes to Business" field on the purchase screen (check out my suggestions below for framing an effective query).
Please include any context/background info you feel comfortable sharing. This helps me be more on-target with your reading. Even a general area to focus on like career, relationships, spirituality, money, etc., is more helpful than nothing.

(If you’re purchasing a reading as a gift, let me know in the “Notes to Business” field on the checkout screen. You’ll get a gift certificate pdf with instructions for claiming the reading that you can forward or print out for the recipient.)
Book a 30-minute session where you can ask questions and get additional clarification. (You'll also get an e-mail summary and photo of your spread.) If you select this option, you'll get a confirmation e-mail with a scheduling link so you can set up your appointment.

Asking Good Questions
Here is a long (but not exhaustive!) list of ways to frame an effective question. You'll notice there is a lack of questions that address specifics (yes/no, who/what/where/when) or advice (should I / shouldn't I). I find those kinds of questions to be less useful than the ones below. Give them a read and see what stands out to you!

“You hit the nail right on the head with me and how I’ve been feeling spiritually and physically. This was a brand new experience for me when it comes to tarot readings, but I can tell you that this was extremely meaningful for me. Not only was it validating for the feelings that I am experiencing right now, but your reading also forced me to confront a lot of my personal conflict that I don’t often directly look at.”
