My Philosophy and Method
A psychic reading is a collaborative journey into the imagination. Thirteen years of experience has shown that the most fruitful sessions my clients have had feature three key elements.
A specific focus.
A willingness to relate to metaphorical concepts.
An active participation on the process.
Whether you take your session by phone or in person, I will present you with images for us to look at together. As we interpret the way they relate to one another, familiar stories will emerge. It's like looking into a dream mirror of your life.
The images will be randomly drawn from a signature deck of over 400 modern, art-cards I've collected since about 2006. They come from my travels through the Americas, Asia and Europe and collectively they become an oracle that I call The Postcard Tarot.
It has all the relevance of a traditional tarot deck—offering reflections of your past, present and future—yet its modern nature makes it easily relatable. My clients love it!
While the impressions are generally to be taken symbolically, the deck has such a diverse, contemporary nature that it can illustrate circumstances quite literally as well.
I'll first interpret the cards as I see them. But you will have your own associations. As you interpret the stories they portray, we'll correlate our impressions in a dialog. Through that process, potential paths and psychic details can reveal themselves.

How I Found My Psychic Ability
In 1995 I'd founded a successful home-spun ice cream company in Honolulu, my home from 1987. As the business grew, I discovered that due to the nature of distribution to the islands, my venture wasn't sustainable. By 2004 I was drowning in debt, so I turned to tarot cards for help.
To my amazement, they offered remarkably clear advice. They not only lifted me out of the water, they showed me a way to thrive.
Read more about the details of that story, and how you might connect to your own psychic ability in my book, Can You Turn It Off?: A Diary of Psychic Awakening.
While I don't use traditional cards anymore, they initiated a fascinating new career for me. By 2007, I was working as a professional psychic. That year, on my 40th birthday, I moved to Manhattan. New York dramatically expanded my horizons. In August of 2015, TimeOut Magazine chose me as one of New York’s Top 10 Psychics. I'm honored to have been featured on CNN, NBC'S Psychic Hawaii, and Comcast where I wrote and hosted a show called Psychic Workshop.
Every year or so, I work in Honolulu and Tokyo. Twenty three participants attended my workshop in Hawaii last April. And in September 2017 I made my eleventh trip working in Japan!
