A Seasoned New York Psychic Loving San Francisco
Thank you for visiting my website. I've worked as a professional psychic for fifteen years, in New York, Tokyo, San Francisco and Honolulu.
I specialize in career concerns, relationships and decisions. If you're not located near Telegraph Hill or Manhattan's Upper West Side, consider a phone session. It comes recorded and with symbolic visual imagery.
Readings by Phone or Skype are always available. Due to COVID-19 I can't offer in-person sessions. I am sheltering in place in San Francisco: Telegraph Hill

StyleCaster: A Guide To The Tarot
A psychic reading is an insightful journey into the imagination. Over the last fifteen years I've made my life offering intuitive guidance for folks at a crossroads. After about a thousand sessions, I realized that the best psychic readings feature three key elements:
A focal topic or two.
A willingness to relate to metaphorical concepts.
An active participation on the process.
I love how every reading is a spontaneous journey where amazing things can happen. Consider any impressions that you're given symbolically. I'll be your tour guide helping you to relate to them. Yet some of the images you receive might illustrate circumstances quite literally as well.
Read about my method below keeping in mind that we'll each interpret symbolic imagery. I'll share how I see the impressions and you'll have your own associations. Together we'll correlate our impressions in a dialog. Through that intuitive process, potential paths and psychic details can reveal themselves.
The Postcard Tarot—A Signature Tarot Deck Born in 2006
When you read with me, either by phone or in person, I will present you with a circle of images for us to look at together. The images will be randomly drawn from a personally-curated collection of over 400 modern art cards. I began gathering these in 2006. Over the years I've traveled through the Americas, Asia and Europe. Everywhere I go I find cards to add to my deck. Collectively, they serve as a remarkably rich oracle that I call The Postcard Tarot.
It has all the relevance of a traditional tarot card deck—offering reflections of your past, present, and future—yet its modern nature makes it easily relatable. My clients love it!

How I Discovered My Psychic Ability
In 1995 I'd founded a successful home-spun ice cream company in Honolulu, where I lived from 1987-2007. The business initially flourished, but due to the nature of distribution to the islands, I found that my venture wasn't ultimately sustainable. By 2004 I was drowning in debt, so I turned to tarot cards for help.
To my amazement, they offered remarkably clear advice. They not only lifted me out of the water, they showed me a way to thrive.
Read more about the details of that story, and how you might connect to your own psychic ability, check out my book, Can You Turn It Off?: A Diary of Psychic Awakening.
While I don't use traditional tarot cards anymore, that oracle initiated a fascinating new career for me. By 2007, I was working as a professional psychic. That year, on my 40th birthday, I moved to Manhattan. New York dramatically expanded my horizons. In August of 2015, TimeOut Magazine chose me as one of New York’s Top 10 Psychics. I'm honored to have been featured on CNN, NBC'S Psychic Hawaii, and Comcast, where I wrote and hosted a show called Psychic Workshop.
Every year or so, I work in Honolulu and Tokyo. Twenty-three participants attended my psychic readings workshop in Hawaii last April. September 2018, I'll make my twelfth trip to work in Japan!
