Astrotherapy is a way of tending your inner garden; nurturing, watering, feeding, and caring for the variety of life inhabiting your inner landscape.
The metaphorical language of astrology however, is a way of discovering what sort of seed packets have been planted in this inner garden. How have motivations, attitudes, affect states, cognitive skills, attachment needs, relational style, etc., taken root, sprouted, matured, and blossomed within you? This is the value of astrology.
In the greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas, I provide astrotherapy and an in person and online astrological consulting service based on your personal birth chart derived from the time, date, and place of your birth. Though I am attentive to current transit and progression trends in your life, I do not make predictions nor engage in fortune telling. I do not give you advice as to how you should live your life or what decisions you should make about your circumstances. I don't deal with past lives or karma. I don't believe the stars have any influence over us nor do I believe in bad signs, planets, or aspects. What I do believe is that astrology is a metaphorical language best used for exploring and enriching our life experience. The chart is a deep well from which we may always draw helpful insights throughout our lives, especially during times of questioning and discord. It doesn't so much give us answers as it provokes questions for us to explore to arrive at our own empowered solutions.
Astrotherapy is the application of astrological principles to the therapeutic process. This is for the person who may be experiencing difficult life transitions, stress, loss, grief, depression, anxiety, relational or career concerns.Though similar to counseling, I am not assessing, diagnosing, or treating you for any mental disorder.
This is a collaborative dialogue exploring your natal chart to discern your motivational drives, attitudes, relational style, communication pattern, attachment needs, potential strengths, life themes, and critical challenges.A streamlined one hour detailed explanation of your chart is also available.
eConsults are writing intensive online exchanges about personal concerns using the astrology to guide us. These are especially good for people with scheduling problems or who enjoy journal keeping, letter writing, blogging, etc. These exchanges may extend anywhere from two weeks to two months.
