FAQs

What is a channeling session like?

Feel free to ask any questions about my psychic services.

We’ll sit down together in my living room and have a cup of tea and a conversation. I’ll close my eyes a bit as I listen for messages, and I’ll periodically tell you what I pick up on. I may jot down impressions in my notebook. I don’t go into any trance or speak in any weird voices. I try pick up on things like names, personalities, and other details that only you would know.

Usually, I’ll start just by listening to the energy that’s coming through and telling you what I sense. After awhile, I’ll ask you if you brought any object or photo. If you bring a photo for me to use in connecting, please don’t show it to me until I am ready. When I ask for it, just hand it to me face down so that I don’t see it. I’ll spend some time holding the object or photo to feel what energy it brings through before I turn it over to look at it.

Towards the end of the session, I’ll ask if you have any questions either for your loved ones or for me. When the session is complete, you can pay the balance or tip, cash is preferred, but credit card is also accepted.

What is a psychic reading like?

It is very relaxed and casual. I will use the Tarot cards to pick up on specific situations or attributes to discuss, and I will also inquire with your Spirit Guides for any other information we should know. When I talk to your Spirit Guides, it is a lot like meditating for me. I will close my eyes and breathe deeply while I listen for what comes through. More details are on my Psychic Reading page.

Where do your sessions take place?

We have a few options: Most in-person sessions are at our home in West Asheville, NC (near Sunny Point Café). After you confirm your appointment, I will give you my private home address. I also have some sesions at Instant Karma Downtown at 36 N Lexington Ave, Asheville, NC 28801 or at Instant Karma West at 725 Haywood Road, Asheville, NC 28806, which is the only wheelchair accessible option I have available. I can also do sessions via telephone, Facetime, and Skype, so feel free to book from anywhere in the world. By default, your session will be in my home, but if you'd prefer one of the Instant Karma locations, just contact me before you book your appointment.

What are your rates?

My services are offered at a sliding scale rate of $30 to $100. The first $30 is your booking fee (refundable if you cancel or reschedule up to 48 hours before your session). The balance and tip are due at the time of the session, either by cash (preferred for in-person sessions) or by credit card.

What do most people contribute?

Most people offer between $60 and $80, but please don’t let these amounts deter you if you are in need of a reading to help bring you peace. The money helps pay my bills, but helping others is what truly sustains me.

Do you accept checks or credit cards?

For sessions at my home, I prefer only cash, please (but cards can be used if required). Sessions at Instant Karma, remote sessions, and gift certificate purchases can be through credit cards.

Do I need to bring anything?

Yes, below are the recommended items to bring to an in-person channeling session:

  • PHOTOS AND/OR PERSONAL OBJECTS - If it's convenient, please bring one or two photos of the person you'd like to connect to and/or one or two personal objects. If you don't have any printed photos, a photo on your cell phone is fine. If you don't have photos or personal objects at all, that's fine, too. Keep in mind that I cannot guarantee who will come through. That is up to spirit.
  • QUESTIONS - You may want to think ahead of time about any questions you have, either for me or for your loved ones.
  • PAPER & PEN OR RECORDING DEVICE - It is completely up to you whether you would like to take notes or record the session. (Please do not broadcast the session without written permission.)
  • LOVE OFFERING (Cash, please) - For in-person sessions, I prefer to receive the balance and/or tip by cash if possible.

Can I bring someone else with me?

Sure, you may bring one additional adult. If you absolutely must bring a child, I will understand, but be aware that additional distractions can negatively affect the session.

How did you get started and how long have you been doing psychic readings?

I've been involved in psychic activities since I was a child. In 1986-87, I studied parapsychology at the University of Kent at Canterbury in England. At that time, I became close friends with a psychic mentor who taught me how to do Tarot readings.

How did you get started and how long have you been channeling?

I’ve been involved in various psychic activities off and on for most of my life. However, it was just in May 2017 that I started channeling.

I was sitting at a waterfall getting in touch with nature and spirit, spending time in prayer, and talking to my loved ones who’ve passed on.

“You know I want to make a difference in the world,” I said. “If there’s something I can do to help others that I’m not already doing, please give me signs, and I’ll try to listen.” Immediately, the thought popped into my mind that I should learn to channel loved ones who’ve crossed over, so that I can bring peace to others.

Intrigued, I agreed that I would. I asked what I should do in order to learn. The answer that came to me was to read books, visit other psychics, and spend time in meditation. I started right away, and by the end of the month, I was channeling.

How accurate are your readings?

Each reading can vary, depending on the energy of the loved one we’re connecting with. Other factors can also play a role, such as how receptive you are to the information that’s coming through. If it’s within the first six months after a loved one has passed, sometimes the intensity of the grief can get in the way of obtaining peaceful closure. Similarly, if you’re angry with the deceased, or otherwise distraught, it can make the session more challenging.

In general, I find that the information that comes through seems to be about 80-90% accurate. Of course, I’ll leave it to you to let me know what your perception is after your session is complete.

Should I tell you when you’re right or wrong?

As I channel, one of my tasks is to clear my mind so that I can hear what’s coming from spirit and ignore any chatter from my own brain. Sometimes, pieces of info will come through that I haven’t interpreted correctly, and sometimes, I may accidentally let through information that is from my own brain’s chatter. If/when pieces of info come through that don’t resonate with you, I ask that you simply let it go. As is often the case, it might make sense to you later, or it might just not be correct or relevant. Unless I ask you a question, I’d rather you remain silent instead of voicing a negative response, as that helps keep the energy flowing. If something comes through that is accurate, it is helpful if you can simply say that you understand. Please don’t volunteer details or information about your family unless or until I ask you.

Do you get names?

The stronger I get as a medium, the more names I get. Lately, I’ve been getting names during about 50% of the sessions.

May I record the session?

Yes, it is fine if you’d like to take notes or record the session. I ask that you do not broadcast it to others without my written permission.

Is there anything else I should know?

We have two dogs who are very sweet and friendly. One is an overgrown puppy who is still learning his manners. If you are uncomfortable around dogs, just let me know so I can put them in another room.
