*SISTERBRIDE* 

I am an artist, astrologer and integrative healer. I make video, take photos and perform comedy theatre. My art work combines poetic, documentary narratives with surrealist humor ~ measuring the hard facts about human experience against it’s comical absurdities. Similarly, my counseling is dynamic, depth-oriented and informed by my love for storytelling and play. I work best with fellow artists, empaths, activists, LGBTQ, those on the fringe or anyone interested in healing, self-realization and consciousness.

I have had a lifelong preoccupation with mind-body practices, metaphysics and folk magic. Overtime, this has grown into a radical passion for holistic psychology with a special expertise in traditional Astrology. I adore empowering people with the know-how of their natal chart, their gifts, talents and the timing of their life cycles and events. Using my intuitive and technical skills as an artist, I translate astrological symbols into concrete guidance points for unlocking potential and life purpose. Alongside astrological analysis, I am a certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor, Integrative Hypnotherapist and Shamanic Breathwork Facilitator. I offer customized yoga sets, self-hypnosis tool-kits and planetary magic rituals to help reinforce strengths, remediate difficulties and guide you towards the most authentic you.

I run the workshop Ha Ha, Astrology, the most entertaining astro-education for folks to embody their birth charts through clowning, performance and group play. I also craft a monthly video art newsletter Dead Diary, which reports star vibes through abstract moving images. I am in an all-female improv troop and make solo performance, installation and films often inspired by stellar alignments. My intention as an artist and astrologer is to offer you something raw, real and sometimes really funny - art and insight that is more than mere aesthetic object but that which acts on you, guides you to your own wisdom and inner weirdo.

I earned an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I am a former apprentice at the Lunaria Tarot and Mystic School, a scholarship graduate of RASA School of Astrology and certificate recipient at Kepler School of Astrology. I’ve studied under Melissa Tiers at the Center for Integrative Hypnosis in NYC and holotropic breathwork with Michael Stone and David Elliot. My work is influenced by the trickster spirit of mentors like Matthew Goulish, Lin Hixon, the Idiot Workshop in Los Angeles, DIY communities, cold showers and the occult section in the public library. You can find me in LA offering mini-readings at the DEN Meditation Center, teaching Kundalini at Evoke Yoga or performing improv theatre around town.
