As a lifelong ‘seeker,’ Amanda’s work is based in the belief that by doing the deep work of transforming consciousness we are better able to navigate the significant challenges of the times we live in, and that any bit of healing we’re able to do for our own hearts ripples out to the collective: as within, so without. She has a penchant for Practical Woo, for exploring and supporting queer folks and those who are engaging alternative relationship styles, and for making powerful tools for healing and growth accessible to those who seek them.
Amanda graduated from Antioch University Seattle with a master’s degree in Depth Psychology. In graduate school she focused on how apocalyptic imagery affects the psyche and how astrology and ritual can be used to help us navigate personal and collective rites of passage. She has been studying astrology for over a decade and is invested in using it as a therapeutic tool to help people step into their power. She is certified through Steven Forrest’s apprenticeship program in addition to her work with many other practitioners.
Amanda's approach is a blend of evolutionary, archetypal and psychological astrologies, while she also blends tarot, dream work, shamanic practices and ritual into many of her sessions. She is a certified Deep Memory Process® (cathartic past life regression) practitioner and uses somatic-emotional bridges, embodied approaches and soul retrieval to help people clear imprints and patterns.

"I practice Evolutionary Astrology (EA), which is heart-centered, therapeutic approach to healing. EA provides tools for working with unconscious dynamics and emotional patterns that have been with you for many lifetimes. Using EA, I can help you to understand your deepest wounds. I can also help you to uncover your talents, strengths, and all kinds of hidden treasures that will help you to work through these patterns and difficult life transitions. My focus is on helping you to clear patterns at all levels - not just the mental, but the emotional and physical as well.
Astrology helps us to uncover answers to the question “why am I here?” My job is not to tell you who you are or to predict your future – you have the freedom to make decisions and to engage your fate in whichever way you want. Instead, I use your natal chart as a way of mapping out possibilities in order to empower you to make decisions that serve your soul’s purpose – no matter what is going on in your life at a given point in time.
Working together, we can figure out concrete, practical ideas that can help you to move forward. I tend to ask a lot of questions, which provide doors to exploration. You might also hear me bring up philosophy, science, dream tending, body work, creativity, or nutrition. I also tend to rely on embodied experience to get you to better understand your own intuitive wisdom as accessed through guided visualizations, art and memory.
Astrology is a blueprint for integrating so many aspects of life, and I will help you to interpret that blueprint."
