|Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.
– Helen Keller
I am both a psychotherapist and a mystic. In my own journey towards wholeness I have investigated many paths, and this has made me a rich resource for others. I have been a long time student of both Eastern and Western spiritual philosophies, including Buddhism, the Tao, Kabbalah, the Western Hermetic Tradition, Spiritual Alchemy, Nature, Mindfulness Meditation, and the mystic sciences of Palmistry, Tarot and Astrology. I have combined these studies with years of psychotherapy, meditation, psychic development and contemplation. I know from experience that you can change your way of being with yourself and being in the world.
I love giving readings that combine all the mystic arts. I am a clear and gentle communicator and an excellent synthesizer of information. I can bring together the information in the hand, the astrology chart and the tarot cards for a comprehensive picture of yourself and your situation.
I have been in counseling fields for over 40 years. I began as a social worker in 1968. After achieving an M.A in Psychology (Goddard College, 1985), I opened my private therapy practice in Manhattan, which combines both traditional and spiritual methods. I have continued to have the pleasure of evolving in this work for 40 years. You may read more about this aspect of my work at www.wisewomantherapist.com
For over 30 years I have been part of the faculty at the New York Open Center, teaching Tarot and the Western Hermetic Tradition. Some of the classes I have taught there are: Tarot and Alchemy, Tarot and Kabbalah, Archetypal Images of the Tarot, and Developing your Intuition with Tarot. I have been teaching Palmistry for over 40 years both privately and at the School of Oracles.
In addition, I have presented at the Open Center Esoteric Quest Conferences in Granada, Spain; Prague and Cesky Krumlov in Czech Republic; Florence, Italy; and in Weimar, Germany, and at the library in Alexandria, Egypt.
I see and respect each individual for the unique and beautiful soul that they are. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions about my work.
