I was born and raised in New England, but have lived in the southwest, the northwest, and now Florida. I loved back-packing and wilderness camping in the mountain ranges of both coasts, and thrilled with white water canoeing. Now it’s bike rides or walks
on the beach.
With a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education, my professional career of over thirty-five years was focused upon working with children ages birth to five years and their families. I served as a classroom teacher, child-care program director, and as a child development specialist.The children’s abilities ranged from gifted to developmentally challenged.This background gives me a rich understanding of the impact of early childhood experiences on adult life.
In retirement, I explored many paths, including being a Jewish Para-chaplain, a cantorial soloist, and a Unity Church prayer chaplain. I enjoy spending time alone in nature, recording the beauty through photography and poetry. But my great passion is using AstroPsychology to interpret natal charts for clients.
"What we are really living for is the experience of life, both the pain and the pleasure."
My grandmother was an astrologer who also studied tarot, numerology, and Kabbalah. I have inherited her interest! After the failure of a second marriage, I decided I needed a way to understand why, what had happened, and what I could learn from these experiences. I began studying astrology. This continued on and off for many years, seeking just the right approach. At the same time, I didn’t like the feeling that I was becoming dependent upon astrology to control my life. Then I discovered Dr. Glenn Perry and the Academy of AstroPsychology. I began studying with him in 1999, continuing for almost two years, but did not finish due to meeting my third third (and current) husband. I joined the Academy again in 2013 and was able to finish the intensive Diploma program. Dr. Perry's model of AstroPsychology is such a profound subject, however, that learning never stops. It continues through observing my life, working with clients, and mentoring students of astrology.
Teaching was a great joy for me; and now I bringing that joy to my passion for Astro-Psychology. When I work with a client and natal chart, I will teach as much astrology as the client wants to learn. I want people to understand that they are so much more than their “Sun Signs.” For more information about the sessions see the Consultations page.
