Hi, I’m Jessica. I write. I am a healer. Here’s a little background about me.
First, the geography: I was born in Columbus, Ohio. I spent my formative years in Boulder, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico. I went to college in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina where I graduated with a B.A. in Arts Management. Eventually, I made my way to California, the San Francisco Bay/Marin area, where I lived for the next 20 years.
Healing and health has been an interest for most of my life. In my late teens, during a healing crisis, I discovered astrology, which later turned into a calling. While studying for many years under various teachers (including Stephanie Austin, Steven Forrest, Paul Bogle and others) I’d begun working as a professional astrologer (2004). I received training in the mystical arts, earning a certificate in the Mechanics of Vision (receiving vision; clairvoyance) in the Ankahr Muse tradition. I also became a health coach in 2012, graduating from IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition). By 2016, I’d incorporated EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and Matrix Reimprinting, a form of energy work, into my client practice. I’d also published three books in the astrology and spirituality realms and thought I’d continue in that same vein, possibly for the rest of my life. Yet life loves surprising us, doesn’t it?! There was more in store for me…
In spring of 2016 (during my mid-life Uranus opposition, for the astrologically savvy and curious), I experienced a dramatic shift in my awareness: I began to sense energy very strongly. It was like nothing I’d ever experienced or thought possible, and it totally rocked my world! Meanwhile, I noticed the “rules” of reality dramatically bend and change; a new paradigm of Soul consciousness was emerging, and I was a part of it. I’ve spent the years since developing energy management and intuitive skills with my teacher, a brilliant, light-filled energy healer named Catherine Linard.
In 2018, my husband and I moved to Honolulu, HI. The choice to do so was absolutely a culmination of my new way of being. It became clear that I was no longer aligned with the vibration of where I’d been living (I’m thrilled to report we both love it here!).
As a result of this new growth phase I’ve come to understand that my relationship to my calling is changing, too. While who I AM is both paradoxically constant and evolving, what I can say for sure is while I have spent most of my consulting years as an “astrologer”, and I still enjoy offering astrology to as a core part of my sessions, this singular hat, so to speak, no longer encompasses all that I am capable of offering.
After years as a professional astrologer, now it feels more appropriate to call myself intuitive reader, since the guidance I often find myself receiving is “off the charts” (word play intended) and because it offers flexibility to allow what wants to emerge. “Intuitive” simply means I utilize deep inner listening to connect with the Guide within.
What might you expect in a session with me? Thank you for asking :-). During our conversation I may channel information, look at the position of the planets, help you to shift stuck energy, and offer practical solutions to your questions and concerns. Ultimately, I aim to help you become clearer and feel more aligned in your choices & life. Helping you listen to and heed your own innate guidance is my ultimate wish for every session! My intuition allows me to tune into you, but you are always the guide.
