I work with clients surrounding all manor of unique and varied issues specific to all stages of the human adventure: I have consulted with clients on the birth charts of newborns, teenagers, mid-lifers, those in their 3rd Act of life, and everything in between. More will always be revealed to those who seek.
I have a professional certification in natal astrology from Kepler College, and am a member of the American Federation of Astrologers, the International Society of Astrological Research, the National Council for Geocosmic Research, and the Organization for Professional Astrology. I subscribe to the ethical practices of those organizations. The foundation of my astrological training is in traditional ancient astrological techniques (Hellenistic astrology) using the Tropical Zodiac. I also incorporate modern perspectives into my client consultations, including psychological, humanistic, evolutionary, and spiritual approaches.
My professional framing of the natal horoscope, or birth chart, is that of a map of one's karmic trajectory – an individual's soul path – through this lifetime. However, I can navigate around that language to my client's own comfort level, beliefs or understanding. It's all the same to me. There's no need to be "spiritual" to have an insightful, meaningful experience in your consultation. But it doesn't hurt.
I strive to bring to my client work compassion, sensitivity, and support alongside the confidence I’ve gained through more than a decade of dedicated work in a variety of therapeutic settings as well as drug and alcohol recovery. While I am not a mental health professional, I have substantial experience in mental health issues.I am particularly enthusiastic about serving marginalized communities including persons of all colors, all gender identities, all abilities and/or differences.
I commit to the principal do no harm in all of my practices. Confidentiality is always respected. If you as my client feel inspired to leave a review of our consultation on the Waxing AstroLogic Facebook page, I'd be very grateful for your testimonial there; in which case you thereby grant permission to use your name for that purpose.
Please note, I am merely an interpreter of this ancient system. I am not a fortune teller, nor a mental health or medical professional. Everything I see in and say about your birth chart is entirely my opinion. (If you ask seven different astrologers, you'll get seven different interpretations.) These divination arts and sciences can be a powerful adjunct to your established health and self-care resources - they are not a substitute for them.
