M y S t o r y --
My first introduction to the Tarot was when I was 15 years old. It seemed mysterious, and at the same time, familiar. I felt a strong connection to the practice even then. Each card represents a distinct state of human consciousness— a story told in pictures.
I have a unique set of skills that I bring to the table as a reader. My primary teacher was a woman who has been reading Tarot for over thirty years. I've also received teachings from my meditation teacher, who is a skilled reader in his own right. It is through him that I learned how to track energetic flow in the body, and open to psychic information, which is really nothing more than a way of perceiving things outside the usual five sense gates.
I am also a Reiki practitioner which helps me to attune to energy in a sensitive way. I’ve had people comment that my readings are a visceral experience. I aspire to be helpful above all else. I see no reason to devote my time to the Tarot unless it can assist others in making better choices for their lives.
Additionally, I am working towards a master's degree in counseling psychology. I am ultimately interested in developing a method of treating people through a unified practice of mind, body, and spirit, combining Tarot, Reiki, and psychological processing to help people understand themselves better and lead more integrated lives.
The caravan came into being in a flash of inspiration around 2011. It took a year to build. I wanted to create a beautiful space for a person to receive their message. It is like a rolling church. Vardo means caravan, in Romany, which is why I chose it for my company name. Sadly, due to Covid, all readings are being performed remotely, via digital media. When I am certain it is safe to meet again in person, we shall reconvene inside that magical beast.
