I love clarity, coffee & red velvet cake
…and helping creatives & healers birth their ideas & projects into the world
I am an intuitive card reader, intuitive guide, content consultant and writer.
My degree is in Social Work, with an emphasis on psychology. I’ve got additional training in coaching and business. And experience as a writer. My writing has been published in The Telegraph, Time Out Doha, Good Housekeeping Middle East, as well as national Swiss publications.
Part of my time is spent over at ArchetypesandAlchemy.com as Managing Editor of publications where I am in charge of structural editing, layout, design & content production of publications.
The Life Archetypes & Archetype Matrix taught over there by my soul sister, Romy Maillard, deeply informs my work with clients. As well as other modalities.
I am also creator of the card deck Sincerely, Your Intuition, the oracle card deck that I frequently use in my card readings.
I believe it is time to reclaim our voices. To speak our truth. Out loud. First, to ourselves. And then show it in our decisions and our actions. To create a better world for us all.
Throughout my life I have been strongly influenced and have called some of the most suppressive cultures “home”: Black Bumper Mennonite, Charismatic Evangelical Christianity, stoic Swiss “shoulds”, Muslim Qatari morals. One thing they all had in common was repression of the senses and the body, which, of course, dulls our access to the ancient wisdom of our own intuition.
Moving amongst these social “shoulds” it was easy to see that the social “shoulds” are not set in stone. That, in fact, social “shoulds” are a lot like clothes. Depending on where you live, depends on what you wear. There will always be consequences of what you choose to wear…but you get to choose.
However, most social “shoulds” are so ingrained in us that they have become like a second skin. We don’t even notice it is there. But, for many of us, right now, these “shoulds” are beginning to scratch like ill-fitting clothes. Too heavy on the shoulders. Too tight around the throat.
No wonder we all have back aches.
When people talk, like a skilled huntress, my senses are primed to see and hear and feel things differently. I’ve been developing my intuitive skills ever since I was a 7 year-old predicting (accurately, & apparently, annoyingly) which marriages would end in divorce.
My hearing is my strongest intuitive skill. I hear cracks in words, underpinnings of a voice, and treasured spaces held quietly between words.
Often some words will “jump” out at me. I will literally hear them louder and see them in the air. Other times a bundle of words, like an unraveling book, will form in my solar plexus and “ask” to be spoken.
I see relationships between things. I track patterns. I connect the dots. Fast. So we can then do something with the information we’ve gleaned.
Tracking down the social “shoulds” that are are still invisibly chained around your hips, keeping you from moving forward and unconsciously driving your decisions. I love helping you tap back into your ancient intuition, so you can shoot your truth like an arrow, straight to the heart of your work in the world.
My core values are truth & freedom. My personal mission is luscious sustainability for the greater good of the Earth, the community & self.
My ideal day involves super hot coffee, trees and deep conversations. Preferably, near the ocean and a thick slice of Red Velvet Cake.
