About

dsc_5443I’ve known since age 19 that the exploration of human potential, self-actualization, and consciousness exploration were my passions, and that my field of study would be psychology. Between that moment and now, I’ve explored a wide range of philosophies, religions, spiritual growth methods and spiritual paths. Ultimately, the two that have resonated most close to my soul are Holotropic Breathwork and Astrology.

I have been a certified and practicing Holotropic Breathwork practitioner in the Seattle area since 2002, having facilitated at more than 160 breathwork workshops, and leading 120 of those.

I’ve been a student of astrology since the same time, when I had my first natal chart and transit reading by my first spiritual mentor, Ray Grasse.  During my studies, I’ve become more and more struck by the depth and profound subtlety of the archetypal planetary energies which seem to underlie all that we do in life (but which do not dictate fate, in contrast to traditional astrology).  I’ve been surrounded by a lot of amazing astrologers over the years, all of whom I have learned from, especially Steven Forrest, Richard Tarnas, Ray Grasse, Matthew Stelzner as well as many others.  There isn’t a whole lot more exciting to me than sitting across the table from someone who has never had an astrology reading before and delving into their deepest motivations, gifts and challenges, and cycles of life.

I completed a master’s degree in Psychology from Antioch University Seattle in 1998, which I self-designed, focused on Psychology, Spirituality and Transformational Adult Education.

I also love technology and the creative potential it opens up.  I worked in the tech field running and developing websites and consulting on search engine optimization.
