I’m Dr. Rose.
What if you could feel into the unknown, see beyond the ordinary, and receive the wisdom of your own inner guidance?
You may think tarot cards are about fortune-telling.
But really, the tarot deck is a creative technology for meaningful insight from symbols and story.
My intuitive counseling style combines Tarot with symbolic interactionist theories of emotion, identity, and change.
I offer sociologically-informed tarot card readings as a sacred container for self-discovery and empowerment.
I started working with tarot cards at age 14, having received them as a gift from my mother. At first, I would simply draw pictures of the mysterious images and contemplate their meanings. This practice evolved into the art-journaling method I now teach students who want to read tarot cards for themselves and others.
Tarot symbolism inspired me to learn about the real-life significance of mythology, folklore, world religions, mysticism, astrology, alchemy, numerology, sacred geometry, and practical magic. In addition to these informal studies, I completed an interdisciplinary BA from UCF with a minor in women’s studies as well as both an MA and a PhD in sociology from OSU.
My client-centered approach draws on hereditary lineages of energetic healing and holistic wellness, personal life-lessons from the School of Hard Knocks, and an abiding belief in the power of love.
If you need guidance, I can help.
