Growing up in the conservative Midwest, I so often felt out of place. Confused. Desperately trying to cram myself and my beliefs into a box they didn't belong in. Wondering if everyone around me had this same deeply felt ache of sad compromise.
I've lived so many different lives trying to fit in. In and out of an abusive marriage by the time I was 22, I spent the rest of my twenties armed with unhealthy coping skills and abandonment issues doing everything I could to please everyone but myself.
It wasn't until I was nearly 30, living in my mother's empty house, that something inside me finally decided enough was enough.
I was in Colorado Springs before I had realized what I had done.
In a matter of days, I had quit all three of my jobs, loaded my Great Dane and anything else that would fit into my car, and drove to a house in San Francisco to live with 6 men I didn't know.
But for the first time in my life, the ache was gone. Life started to snowball in the most wonderful way. Meeting my husband, discovering tarot and meditation, and devouring all of the information I could on yoga and spirituality. Building a vocabulary for the things I had known my whole life.
I am good at what I do. I can show you the certificates. But, more importantly, I am good at what I do because I have spent thousands of hours reading, learning, and helping people. I have spent thousands of hours becoming the woman 20-year-old me so desperately needed so that I can help you do whatever it takes to live your most authentic life.
Because I want the journey to your self to be quicker and easier than mine was.
Because I want you to know that you are valuable beyond measure and that you are exactly what the world needs.
Because doing deep scary work, isn't as scary when you have a hand to hold and someone to make you laugh along the way.
A LETTER TO YOU
I am so glad you're here! As you move through this site, there are a couple of things I want you to know.
My primary goal throughout everything I do in this business and in my life, is to cultivate a feeling of a love and acceptance for everything you currently are, anything you have ever been, and anything you plan on growing into.
As much as I can, I will work to ensure that any space I create is a space where you can feel safe and accepted and welcome to be exactly who you are. Please don't ever be afraid to let me know if, for some reason, that is not the case.
That being said, I want to make sure it is understood that anywhere you see phrases related to the bifurcation of gender, that this has no relation to any biological "qualifiers" and are in no way meant to be exclusionary. I use terms like masculine, feminine, male, and female as references to the two poles of the wide spectrum of energy that exists within each of us. You are perfect and valid and welcome no matter where you fall on the rich spectrum of gender.
I also want it to be understood that any practices found throughout the site are not meant to be appropriational in any way. Please feel free to reach out if you find something that feels contrary to that intention.
Also, if you have any cultural or spiritual practices you would like to share, I always love learning about what makes you feel powerful and in alignment.
"I've received various tarot and oracle readings throughout the years and I can confidently say that my recent tarot reading with Dani was one of the best and most thorough readings I've had. Dani did a wonderful job preparing our sacred space, setting clear expectations, and communicating openly and honestly with me. Her thoughtful preparation gave me the ease and confidence I needed to get the most of our time together. She did a great job answering all of my questions and providing the insight I was looking for using her intuitive gifts. I highly recommend Dani and would love to work with her in the future"
