|As a counseling astrologer, I use the symbols of the birth chart to help you find your place in the order of things. The birth chart is like a map of the psyche, and knowledge of your chart can offer you profound guidance on your journey toward living a fulfilling, soulful life. With a look at the current movements of the planets through your chart, I am also able to empower you with information about your upcoming opportunity periods, and can offer you strategies for those inevitable challenging periods that may be coming your way. Ultimately, I use the language of astrology to help you to more clearly see your unique path, allowing you to access your gifts and strengths.
My Training and Education
I received my formal astrological training through Steven Forrest’s Apprenticeship Program, and I base my approach on the principles of Evolutionary Astrology. I hold two Master’s degrees: one in English from California State University Sacramento, and one in Interdisciplinary Studies from Marylhurst University. My coursework at Marylhurst included a study of spiritual traditions and Spiritual Direction. My thesis there focused upon the relationship between astrology, divination, and religion. I presented an academic paper on these themes at the Graduate Liberal Arts Symposium at Stanford University in June of 2008. I also completed my formal training and 2-year certification in Spiritual Direction at the Urban Spirituality Center, Portland in June of 2009.
Putting my English degree to work, I became a part-time English Instructor in 1998. Throughout my years as a community college instructor, my experience in teaching theory has continued to inform my career as an astrological instructor. I teach astrology to small groups and individuals (both online and in person).
