Therapist & Astrologer
Working as a therapist for the last decade, I realized that everyone is unique in the things they need, how they process emotions, the way they think, and their personal gifts and challenges. I came to know individuals over time through our therapeutic work and I would be able to slowly identify these aspects in each of them. I knew there were patterns and similarities in this. When I dove deep into astrology, I discovered that our uniqueness can be found right there on the very day we are born, in our birth charts. The study of astrology has taught me to read birth charts and allows me to instantly see these qualities in a person. What once took a significant amount of time and a relationship to build, now is understandable at first glance.
Astrology is a visual language that holds patterns and destinies. It is through studying our own astrology that we can better understand our own patterns, gifts, challenges, and roles in this lifetime. Through my study at the Debra Silverman Applied Astrology Program, I have the skills to be able to read and interpret this language. Studying my own birth chart and tracking the astrological patterns has been helpful for me as an individual in growing my self-awareness, self-acceptance, and courage to step into the challenges and destinies that my chart holds. The acquisition of this knowledge has been monumental in my own healing. I have witnessed with clients the support, validation, and relief that comes with their knowledge of their cosmology. Knowing our cosmology is like giving ourselves permission to be ourselves without having to pretend or conform to the norms that society sets for us. We can find comfort in knowing that our fire sun makes us bold and strong, but our water moon makes us sensitive and want to hide. When we come to understand that this is a challenge that we came into this lifetime to work out, we can surrender to the authenticity of who we are and live with confidence in our own shoes.
I have been integrating the use of astrology in my therapeutic work with clients as a means to understand, support, and work with our unique energy. It is not a requirement to be a therapeutic client, but there is an invitation to integrate the two languages of therapy and astrology to achieve a higher level of awareness and tools for ones healing journey.
