The little numerology and astrology books you would see at the check out counter at the neighborhood grocery store were the first introductions and influence into my interest in metaphysical topics. Interest in the unknown, unconsciously motivated behavior, and in psychological aspects of behavior, continued throughout college.  My BA in Psychology concentrated on Abnormal, Deviant & Violent psychology and I’m currently pursuing a Masters/Ph.D. in Health Psychology while simultaneously pursuing certification as a CADC – Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor.

In the past, I have utilized personality testing in the field of Human Resources in the interviewing and hiring process. My Human Resources Certificate is from Cornell University (ILR) International Labor Relations and well as having a Generalist Certificate from The Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM).  

Since 1995, my concentration has been in combining my knowledge of psychology and astrology and utilizing the two in the counseling process. Involvement with an online support group on America Online (AOL) for Online Addiction and Cyber Affairs lasted for 1 1/2 years. During that time I had counsel ed over 300 people online. In addition I have been consulting as Internet Researcher and Personnel Recruiter (Integrated Staffing Resources, Inc.) On the astrology front, I have provided research to an Astrologer which was then utilized in an Astrology course. My astrological focus lies mostly in the areas of relationship counseling ie: compatibility, karmic astrology, personality career/vocational counseling, addictions and sexuality in the birth chart. I am a member of the American Federation of Astrologers (AFA), National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), The Magi Society and The International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR), American Psychological Association (APA), & Carl Jung Foundation. Reading Tarot, incorporating numerological symbolism is utilized to guide others during consultation. Other Certifications include Reiki Levels I, II and Advanced Restorative Reiki, consisting of Pre-Surgery, Imagery and Client Empowerment and have been a Reiki volunteer at the local SPCA.
