    Any other relevant comments: I will never judge a person for the decisions they have made in life; God knows that I have made countless bad choices and mistakes my self, particularly with drug abuse, and I want to set people at ease and let them know that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. I have suffered from depression, anxiety, depersonalization disorder and obsessions without compulsions. The man who has been to the abyss and returned can best show others the way.
    “I came to say a word and I shall say it now. But if death prevents its uttering, it will be said by Tomorrow, for Tomorrow never leaves a secret in the book of Eternity.”

    "I am here, living, and I cannot be exiled from the domain of life, for through my living word I will live in death."

    I completed the training for my Master Practioner certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, through the Society for NLP. I am offering my services here for the love of it.

    New York State law prohibits me from assisting anyone in the treatment of a clinically diagnosed disorder. I am not a psychologist and do not have a counselling or social work degree. I do have direct, personal experience overcoming anxiety/panic disorder, divorce, abortion, homelessness, single parenting, home education, and academic success with learning differences, and although I am not qualified to assist in the treatment of a disorder, I can share my experiences.

    A different New York State law that I happen to strongly disagree with requires me to state my services as a Tarot Reader are for entertainment only.

    As The Tarot Life Coach, I take a positive, solution-based approach (as opposed to problem-based "away-from" strategies), and can assist you in making your own wonderful empowering decisions. That is the closest I come to offering advice. I may make suggestions, but will not "tell you what you should do", even when asked.

    I have 17+ years experience in Wicca and Pagan Religion, Magic(k) and Divination, and I have intermediate training in Shamanic technique, although I no longer consider myself strictly Wiccan. I can offer divinatory consultation through Tarot, Runes, Playing Card Divination, Pendulum, Druid Animal Oracle, and Wiccan Oracle Cards.

    I have informal training in shamanism, energy healing, peaceful communication techniques, guided imagery meditation, creative visualization, and affirmations.

    I am a "Witch Wars" Conscientious Objector! I will not discuss theology, politics, or the Great Pumpkin, or take sides in such debates. Please do not feed or tease the Drama Llama!

    Be Well and Be Love!

    I have a dumb question: what does "recluse" (under the issues section) mean?
