About Me

My whole life I have been drawn to the magical, the esoteric, and the alchemical. As a child I had a sense that in everything I did, in everyone I met, in everything I experienced there was something hidden to sense, see, and know. Sometimes what I picked up on was scary or overwhelming. Sometimes it brought healing or joy to others. Like many other sensitives, I didn’t feel in command of this ability, and I learned quickly to tune down my awareness, dull my senses, and turn off my connection to energy and spirit.

As a teenager I felt out of place in my own life. Where I had once been dynamic, creative, and enthusiastic - I floundered and lost connection to myself and others. I found temporary refuge in creative writing and the performing arts, but never stopped seeking the hidden side of life. Unusual circumstances and unmistakable signs continued to show up, always guiding me back to my inherent sensitivity to energy and spirit. I have come to know that the seeking is not about finding anything at all. The seeking itself is the path of the Mystic.

In finding my vocation as a psychic reader, healer, and teacher the part of myself that is always seeking has found purpose, cause, and meaning. In learning how to work with energy I have a form and tools to understand the things I sense, see, and know - I am safe and comfortable enough to bring spirit and magic back into my life. This is the thing the psychic - or mystic - craves; to bring their spirit more fully into everything they do and experience. 

In 2015 I transitioned out of a successful career as a theater director and corporate consultant and created Portland Psychic School as a place where learning about energy and being psychic in the world can be fun. I still enjoy a connection to the performing arts, traveling frequently to see theatrical events and concerts with my favorite artists, creatives, and psychics. Originally from the midwest, I have lived all over the country including San Francisco, Chicago, New York, and Minneapolis - but I have found my home among the foodies, Willamette River, old-grown forests, hipsters, "makers", and creatives of all kinds in Portland, Oregon.
