Why Choose Me?


I was posed this question by an astute prospective client. She wanted to know what made me different from other readers. I state the reasons below...



Even though I'm right-brain dominant (creativity, imagination, intuitive, artsy), I fulfilled a career in medicine and clinical research, a left-brain subject (analytical, critical, mathematical). Having to provide empirical proof in my scientific career, I became astute at analyzing details to get to the heart of a problem or to determine a conclusion, or otherwise prove why I can't (my research findings have been published in high-impact journals). I use that approach (as well as an open mind!) in my Astrological chart readings and Palm Readings/Palmistry.

...yet I'm tapped into my intuition.

All analysis and no intuition make a very stunted reading. Especially with divinations such as Tarot that works with synchronicity, not using intuition would be missing the messages. Even though Astrology can be very analytical, it goes much deeper than just connecting the dots on the chart and interpreting from collective knowledge. 

I'm one of the few readers who is astute in more than one divination arts.

 Most reputable readers get their reputation from their accuracy; nevertheless, their accuracy is limited by just doing one style of reading, for instance, only Tarot or only Astrology...
Think of it as getting a diagnosis for a chest cold. Sure, just a check-up can get you a diagnosis, but it's more useful if you get a, say an X-Ray (for it could detect the extent of your cold), more useful if you get a blood test to see the stage and impact of the cold and if there's anything else you're dealing with, even better if you get a sputum smear (a way of detecting exactly which microbe is infecting you). With all that information, you can get the specific treatment that targets your what's going on, and gives you the peace of mind in knowing nothing else is going on.

Chalkboard with Different Languages
I've experienced an array of vastly different cultures while living in other countries.

This has broadened my scope of esoteric studies. In my years overseas, I was exposed to new approaches, perspectives, languages, and knowledge. It has also made me more open to your problems, thoughts, and ideas that wouldn't have otherwise been seen. It is one of the major factors that has made me an expert in Relocation Astrology, such as AstroCartoGraphy and Local Space Lines.


Most people who come for readings have major issues that haven't been or can't be solved or addressed by conventional means. For others, it's because they're in-tune; something that is poo-pooed in the conventional world. I wouldn't shame you for daring to be yourself or anything else. 


Whatever your issue is, I'm here to help, not judge or shame you.

Nothing will shock me.

Travel by train
I keep to myself.

It's very unlikely that I'm in your circle of friends, colleagues, etc. even if I live in your neighborhood. I also travel a fair amount, This may give you a sense of security in knowing we won't run into each other and have that awkward moment, esp. if you're with people.

No one will know you had a reading with me.

Oh yeah, I mentioned that in, "I'm Scientific" and touched on it in, "I keep to myself."

How many readers do you know with a code of ethics?

 I developed my code of ethics through experience. They were created with you in mind, first and foremost, for your highest benefit.

I break things down and explain them to you without the confusing jargon.

With Astrology especially, it's rare to find an Astrologer that explains the planetary forces, the aspects, the signs... but I do.


Same with the Tarot. Sometimes an intimidating card like the 3 of Swords or The Devil, for example, show up in a reading. They can look pretty doomy-and-gloomy! I explain the cards to you in the context of the reading, even the pretty ones (like Lovers, 6 of cups...)

I'm easy to understand.

I've been featured TV, radio, podcasts, academic webinars, magazines, and newspapers - both locally and nationally. Check out some of my media appearances where you can catch a sample of some of my work.

I also teach beginner and advanced astrology classes, so I can effectively bring things down to layman's terms.

I'm child and family friendly.

I'm mindful with youngsters and/or when there's a family setting. Since 2018, I've worked with students and teachers in over a dozen different schools, colleges, and universities. When I lived in the Kansas City, MO area, I did a lot of interviews for school newspapers, journals, or presentations. Check out the article in the Blue Valley High School newspaper. and my work with Stephens College house magazine, Stephens Life in Spring 2022:

I'm transparent.

With a the variety of writing, audio, video, content, and articles, you get a solid impression of who I am and what to expect from your reading. Prices are clearly stated as are policies (The Fine Print). If you have a question, I'm only an email away.

I teach beginner and advanced classes

I'm an Faculty member at Kepler College, a college that offers degrees, diplomas, and certifications in astrology. Teaching helps me understand the subjects more deeply and gaps of knowledge I didn't know I had are filled. It gives me wider perspective and keeps me sharp. I pass that onto you with the readings I do.

I make astrology software

It's a labor of love. I've partnered with AstroloGeeks, Inc. to create Meteor™, which focuses on Relocation Astrology. Making software required me to have fair knowledge of astronomy, astrological history, techniques, and beyond. I factor all that into my readings. You can see a few Demos on my YouTube channel.

I'm regular (mostly)

Hollywood depicts psychics in a dark and cluttered room, maybe someone wearing a turban (funny), and a lot of intrigue and detrimental messages. You could find some psychics like that (most of them often have the neon sign outside their space). I'm in an uncluttered and sunny highrise and I don't wear a turban or make it my job to give you ominous news. You'll find me so regular that you'll immediately feel relief. Almost 9 out of 10 clients (precisely 88%) return within a year for another reading. 

Student Behind the Books
I have a well-rounded education

I was formally educated in the USA and overseas. My story is long, but in short, I have degrees in medicine, public health, and business administration. I've had training in multiple countries, including America. I also have multiple certifications in astrology and tarot. There is my informal education from working, traveling, and living. With that, I have a broader mind and that gives me an ability to see your situation and future with better clarity and accuracy. In case you're wondering, I was born and raised in the USA but I'm wildly adventurous and curious.

I've been doing this full time for years

I started my esoteric business in Kansas City, MO in 2015. Experience really does bring knowledge. I've done readings in many scenarios: one-on-one, at psychic fairs, for individuals and for businesses, at parties, on the spot, by phone and video... This versatility works for you. 

My years in business is also a testament to my abilities and especially to my reputation, accuracy, and professionalism.

I enjoy what I do.

My clients come from all walks of life. The diversity of questions I look into everyday ensures that no day is like any other. With a positive Jupiter-Neptune connection in my astrology chart, I'm naturally interested in unwinding the mystery of what's behind the curtain and doing the best job I can do.
