A place to land, to dream, to create, and to have your story told back to you.
Emotional suffering and struggle are part of living a human life. We all have various degrees of suffering and it shows up in our lives in a variety of ways, but we do not have to journey through the ups and downs of life alone. A spiritual care provider is someone who serves as a confidant, guide, and support person while we navigate the complexity of emotions that accompany our lives. They help us celebrate our joys and mourn our losses and navigate all the spaces in between.
My approach to spiritual care is grounded in Tamánwit. The spiritual law of my Umatilla and Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) ancestors. In my understanding of Tamánwit all parts of creation are alive and have purpose, all are interconnected, and all have the responsibility to live out our purpose in right relationship to each other. As a spiritual care provider, I work with my clients from this place of purpose, interconnection, and responsibility.
We are all related and our authentic selves are needed in this world.
In addition to intuitive readings, I am available to write and perform wedding ceremonies, memorial services, baby blessings, and home blessings. Contact me for pricing and schedule.
Theological reflection is a process of utilizing spiritual and/or religious tools and practices to deepen our understanding of who we are and our relationship to the world. These tools can help an individual or community reflect on a particular situation in their life or environment.
Examples of Theological Reflection might include art making, writing practice, contemplative prayer, meditation, altar building, personality tests (Meyers Briggs, Enneagram), creating ceremony, spellwork, medicine making, or taking a purposeful walk in the woods.
Tarot and other forms of divination can also be utilized as tools for theological reflection. In tarot reading, images are used to describe archetypes for different areas of our lives. Each card tells a story and together a tapestry of story unfolds for the person asking the question.
My intuitive and spiritual work are closely connected with my relationship to my ancestors. This includes connection to human ancestors as well as to ancestral land and ancestral stories. We all come from somewhere and in remembering where we come from, we have the potential to heal our own hearts and future generations. Not only in our own families, but in our communities.
Each of my sessions begins with the creation of an altar. The building of the altar is the building of a prayer. I collect items that call to me as I hold thoughts of the person I am working with in my heart. I gather sacred items and listen for the story they have to tell. Then, I tell you. Each reading begins this way. With prayer. I reach out to Creator (insert your own name(s) for the Divine here, mine is Mama God), my ancestors, your ancestors, the spirits of place and plants and story, to help shape the prayer and build the altar. This is where our active spirit work begins. This is where your medicine shows up.
After the altar is built, I will lay down the cards. Currently, I use the Wild Unknown tarot deck and supplement readings with cards from Black and the Moon and Portable Fortitude. Each card tells me a part of your story and together, in relationship with the placement of the cards, the entire spread helps to bring clarity about where you are in your life at the time of the reading. My work is to tell you the story as the cards reveal it. You are welcome to ask me questions before and during your reading and if you have any concerns or need clarity in the days following our work together, I am happy to respond to those as well.
I offer three reading options at various price points.
The one card option is conducted through email or social media. I will draw a card, then send you a photo of the card, along with a brief description of that card’s story. This reading is most helpful to answer a specific question or to gain clarity around a previous reading.
The three and ten card readings are conducted over the phone and include a personalized altar. I will text or email you photos of the altar and cards before we begin. This will help you follow along and will assist in the process of internalizing the story revealed through the cards.
One Card/$10 (online only)
Three Cards/$25 (20-30 minutes, phone reading)
Ten Cards/$55-$95 sliding scale (60-90 minutes, phone reading)
