Writer. Astrologer. Altered states guide.

 

In early 2016, after spending more than half of my life going to therapy and taking a cocktail of psychiatric medications for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and ADD, I decided I wanted to end my life. I had a great job in my favorite city and my life was going better than it ever had, but I was consumed with darkness. I knew something had to change. 

That summer, in a last-ditch effort to say I'd tried everything, I slowly went off all medication and then did ayahuasca for the first time. In one night, it completely rewired my brain and cut through a lifetime of neural pathways that primed me to fall into depressive, anxious thinking. Despite it being the most transformational experience of my life, I didn't imagine it would permanently fix me. Years later, I now know that it did.

During one of the most intense ayahuasca journeys of my life, I was taken out into deep space where I was experiencing the moment right before I jumped into my body and was born.

All I knew is that I was waiting for the exact right time. As time passed and I watched the planets move, I saw strings of light connecting various planets, creating geometrical patterns. All of a sudden, I saw a triangular formation and somehow knew that was the signal that it was time to be born. I had no idea what any of this meant, but that's often how ayahuasca works.

Several months later someone was asking me about my astrological sign. I told them I didn't really believe in astrology. They pressed me to look up my astrological chart and I immediately had an intense flashback to the ayahuasca journey I'd had. It was the exact triangular formation I'd seen then.

After that, I knew ayahuasca was sending me a major clue that I needed to look into astrology. I started learning as much as I could about astrology and the more I did, the more I realized my natal chart was an invaluable map of my life that telling me everything I'd always needed to know about myself. 

Since then, I've devoted my life to understanding as much as possible about astrology, the psychedelic experience, altered states of consciousness, and transformational healing. I've trained with numerous astrologers, shamans, and healing practitioners from a variety of backgrounds. I've also learned a great deal about navigating spiritual crises and integrating the often challenging things that come up during the healing process.

My mission is simple: I want to give people accessible tools to heal and evolve into their best selves. 

I'm a Leo Sun, Gemini Moon, Scorpio rising. 

I definitely come off as intense, but at my core, I'm a creative and enthusiastic optimist. I have a natural talent for spotting patterns and solving mysteries, and that definitely comes into play when reading natal charts. I'm not interested in light, airy-fairy readings. I want to go DEEP, but still have fun along the way. I want to help you figure out that thing you've been wondering about your whole life, and then give you tangible advice on how to get what you most want out of life.

In case you're wondering...
