What to Expect


My Approach

Every reader works slightly differently. It’s important to me that you are satisfied with your reading, so I’d like to give you some details about how I work so you can know if I’m the right reader for you. Even if it’s your first tarot reading, especially if it’s your first reading! It’s nice to know what you can expect.

My Intention

Live Your Brightest Life

My intention is to help you understand yourself and your circumstances better, to connect to the spiritual lessons that life is presenting to you through your current circumstances, and assist you in identifying strategies to move forward into your most beautiful version of you. To bring you greater happiness, prosperity, healing and joy. It is also my intention to serve as a conduit for any divine messages that may need to come through to you.  Your greatest wellbeing is my aspiration for you.

What You Can Expect From A Reading

My sessions tend to be pretty relaxed and it’s not dissimilar to meeting a friend for coffee. Everything is pretty normal and easygoing. I’ll talk you you and clarify your desires for the reading and we will agree on an approach to the session. I’ll cast some cards with you, and tell you what I see. I will offer you my interpretation and guidance in unlocking the wisdom of the message being given to you. 

You will receive the combined benefit of my knowledge of the cards and intuition to give you the most useful reading I can. I use a combination of tarot and oracle cards from a variety of decks, depending on the reading, question and what I feel called to do.

 I am a practical, down to earth person, and while I believe in some pretty ‘woo-woo’ things like spirit guides and tarot cards, I also believe that grounded, practical action aligned with a clear sense of understanding and purpose is the best way to improve or transform your life.


We will work together to figure out how to put the lessons of the cards into action in your life in a way that works for you, with tangible, achievable steps. I won’t tell you what to do, but I’ll make a series of suggestions and you can decide where you will take it from there. The focus is on you taking responsibility for your life and being empowered with information to make proactive choices.

I believe there are powerful learning opportunities in every situation, however challenging, so I tend to be pretty optimistic and have a low threshold for blame and self pity. I’m also known for being pretty direct. I’m not much good at sugar-coating, but I’m really good at kindness, truth-telling and encouragement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I’m scared to have my tarot read, what if you tell me something bad is going to happen?

A. In my experience, readings generally affirm what you already know in your heart. I rarely see clients unduly shocked or surprised by what I have to tell them. If difficult cards come up, it tends to be because you are having a tough time, and are plenty aware of this already! My readings also tend to be focused on you and your choices at any given time rather than fortunetelling. It can actually be very comforting to have what you are already aware of reflected back to you in greater detail and put into perspective.

Q. Aren’t there some bad cards in the tarot? I don’t want to get any bad cards in my reading.

A. I don’t believe there are any “bad” cards in the tarot. Tarot is a mirror of life, and reflects the full spectrum of human experience, which, let’s face it, can be pretty challenging sometimes. All cards carry learning and growth opportunties. Difficult cards carry powerful medicine, and while it can be confronting, they also offer us some of the most transformational and liberating lessons of all. If these cards show up, it’s because they are reflecting the energy already present in your life, and can help you unlock the spiritual lessons and purpose behind what is going on for you. Understanding what is going on is the first step to being able to change it.

Q. Are you able to predict the future?

A. Not exactly. I can definitely look at likely outcomes and what direction you are currently headed in life. The thing is, we all have free will, as does everyone else in life, and if you or someone influential in your life changes their mind about something important, or makes a significant choice, the future will change.

On the upside, this means if you don’t like where you are headed, or what is forecast to happen, you can change it. I can assist you in looking at probable outcomes and the kind of energy surrounding a choice or situation, or relationship, but I do not guarantee outcomes. Tarot works best when you focus on your free will and ability to take action. So for example, rather than asking “What does my future hold?” I encourage you to ask “How can I move forward into my best possible future?”

Future predictions also become less accurate the further away they get. Life is dynamic, and a lot can change in a short time. Tarot works best for looking at events in the next 12 months or so.

Q. Are you able to communicate with the spirits of deceased people?

A. No, I am not a medium and do not offer these services.
