What To Expect

Sometimes people don’t recognize a reading can be a great source of healing. In fact, they may miss out on the opportunity for love & guidance from the spirit world due to fear of the unknown. That’s why it’s so important to dedicate a page of this site to explaining what to expect from a reading, and specifically, a reading with me.

Your First Reading

Let’s talk about some of the details of what will happen during a reading with me and what you might want to know before you arrive. First, it is best not to provide me with any information prior to your reading; not even the name of the loved one you would like to reach. I just ask that while we sit for the reading, you quietly tune your own energy and intentions to that loved one (or loved ones). I am not able to control who visits from the spirit world – or how long they stay – but it is always helpful to have the loving energy and intention of the client.

You should feel free to record the reading or take notes. In fact, I encourage either / both as we can often forget details, and many times something that does not make sense during the reading may become very clear later. Sometimes, spirits of those we would not expect to hear from make an appearance. When this happens, the spirit often has an important reason for their visit, so please participate in your reading with an open mind and an open heart. The healing that can occur based on those unexpected visits – for both the client and the spirit – is truly a blessing.

Love and Fear Cannot Coexist, Choose Love.

Let’s start by defining the difference between a psychic and a medium. We all have the incredible gift of intuition; however, some have learned to really hone that ability. A psychic is someone who tunes into that intuition and the energy around a person, place or thing to gather and share information about the past, present and future.

A medium uses those same intuitive abilities, but additionally increases their own energy’s vibration in order to communicate with spirits. So, a medium receives much of their information from those in the spirit world rather than from the physical person sitting with them. Every medium is also psychic, but not all psychics are mediums.


Every medium is different, just as every client and every reading is different. There are new lessons to be learned from each experience and each spirit who visits.


As a medium who holds a commitment of working for my client’s highest good, I receive and communicate only messages that are healing, loving and guiding.


I do not receive or communicate messages that create fear or worry. After all, fear and worry are not useful to any of us, and my purpose is to help.

Do I need to bring anything to my reading?
The most important thing is to come to your reading with an open mind and an open heart. Keep in mind, no medium can guarantee a connection to a specific spirit, but it’s always helpful if you set the intention. You may want to create a list of all your friends and family who have passed, as sometimes those we least expect make a connection. That list may help you recognize an unexpected loved one.

If you’d like to record your session, please bring a fully charged recording device. If you plan to use your smart phone, you’ll want to make sure it is set on Airplane Mode during the recording. This not only ensures no disturbances during your session, but will also keep the recording from abruptly stopping due to an incoming call or text.

Do you need an item of my loved one in order to make a connection?
I won’t need anything to make the connection, but if it makes you feel more comfortable to have an item belonging to that loved one, please feel free to bring it with you; however, you should keep it in a safe place, such as your purse or pocket.
What do you need to know about my loved one in order to connect with him / her?
I don’t need to know anything about your loved one. In fact, it’s best if you don’t tell me anything at the start of our session, including their name.
Can I bring a friend to my reading?
You are welcome to bring a friend, but what my experience has shown me is, because I don’t have control of who connects from the spirit world, your friend may end up receiving many, if not all of the messages during your session. Your friend’s loved ones may have been looking for a way to connect to them, and this gives them the opportunity. Because I do not have control over who will receive messages during the session, there is a charge for additional people in the session.
Do you offer psychic readings?
While I have psychic abilities, my work is focused on those in the spirit world – including guides and passed loved ones. In addition to connection with passed loved ones, I offer intuitive readings, which means I am working with guides to help provide clarity about your life and your soul’s path, but I typically do not offer fortune-telling type readings.
When do I pay for my reading?
A $50 deposit is required to hold an in-office appointment. You can pay your entire balance at the time of booking, or if you prefer, you can pay the balance at the end of your appointment.

If your reading is via phone or video conferencing, the entire balance will be due at the time of booking.

Is there anything to be afraid of when getting a reading?
My experience has taught me there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of in the spirit world. Every contact I have had with those in spirit has been loving.
Can you tell if a client has psychic or mediumistic abilities?
If a spirit tells me the client has those abilities, I will know.
Do you offer group readings?
Yes, I am available certain weeknights and weekends for groups of four or more. Group readings are a great way for a family to connect with certain loved ones or for a group of friends to share an unforgettable experience. When you send a request for a group reading, don’t forget to include the number of people in your group and if there is a specific date you are hoping to schedule.
Do you teach others how to recognize and develop their abilities?
Yes, I offer beginner lever classes to help people recognize their psychic and mediumistic abilities, and intermediate level classes for continued development. I also offer one-on-one mentorships for those who have already taken a beginners level class.
