My Approach to Psychic Work

I believe the best use of psychic skills is in helping people understand the process of their lives.

Helping people to recognize and interpret why certain things happen, in the greater context of their lives.

I call myself the Pragmatic Psychic because I believe the information revealed in a Psychic Reading should be useful, and applicable. Anything else is a novelty.

People often describe their experience with a Psychic Reading as enlightening and a source of relief. Afterward they have a new outlook on their lives and relationships. Read some Testimonials my clients have written about their experiences.

These positive reactions bring me great satisfaction knowing my skills are benefiting people.

I am always happy to answer questions about the way I work, with no obligation to you. Thank you for your interest!

My Approach and Personal Path

Psychic abilities have been with me since birth, some people are just born that way. They were first recognized when I was about five years old. My family was fairly open-minded, curious about what was, back then, still commonly called the occult. Their curiosity led to visits to and by psychic practitioners of many different areas of study. This laid an early groundwork for my path of learning.

When I was eighteen, an old psychic medium recognized my  sensitivities, and asked me to join him on stage to read for audience members.

The events and situations I saw in peoples’ Psychic Readings were overwhelming for me. I was young, with little life experience and I avoided Psychic Reading for several years after that.

A turning point came after a dear friend who died appeared to me after her death. She had known nothing of my psychic skills while she was alive. She asked me to deliver messages to her family regarding the location of some important documents. When I didn’t comply immediately she returned the next day and was adamant. It was a bit scary in fact, as she had been a very powerful person in life.

When I shared the information with her family, they confirmed it was correct, and very valuable to them. They were relieved. They made it clear to me through their words and reactions that I should no longer ignore the psychic side of my life because it could help people.

My Philosophy and View of Life

My personal philosophy informs and supports my psychic skills and my ability to assist others.. I believe our purpose in living is to learn and improve. We improve by the living through, and learning from our experiences. All of the situations, relationships and environments we find ourselves in direct us toward that higher purpose.

My work is based on an ability to see these purposes objectively for others and to help them connect the dots between events and relationships in their lives.

The clarity that a Psychic Reading provides allows us to move forward releasing misunderstood feelings of guilt and obligation and freeing us to pursue new goals, ideas, and directions in life.

Reincarnation has always been an unquestionable fact for me. We keep coming back. Our souls spin off new incarnations and personalities for the benefit of having new and different experiences to learn from.

During Psychic Readings, people are sometimes embarrassed or humiliated by the lessons they have to learn. Why? Because we have been trained to judge our accomplishments by comparing ourselves to others.

Do not judge your progress in life based on the abilities or progress of the people around you. Likewise judging other people negatively against your positive progress is a trap.

This is your life journey. Your virtues and shortcomings are your tools to use to learn from.

While these statements reflect my personal beliefs, they are not intended in any way to diminish any other persons’ beliefs or spiritual understanding. The more I learn, the more I realize how similar most faith traditions are in their teaching and purpose. Like everyone, I am learning everyday of my life.


Along with study of faith traditions, my interest in the physical sciences, especially Physics and Consciousness Studies, has deeply influenced my study of psychic phenomena.

My belief in the organic nature of psychic functioning is what leads to me to teach others, because I believe that we all have these abilities within us, but that they lay dormant or undeveloped in most people.
