A b o u t
I started reading tarot cards in middle school. I dressed in my witchiest skirt, wrapped the major arcana in a moody scarf, and read out on the playground at recess. In the decade or so since then, my personal practice waxed and waned. But over the past few years, global turmoil and sapling adulthood brought with them a new dedication to, trust of, and love for the cards. This took many forms: regular readings for myself, daily Instagram challenges, reading for strangers in bars, and coursework with Lindsay Mack of Wild Soul Tarot. In the last few years, I have been honored to successfully expand my practice into the professional sphere, with over 40 clients, many of whom have chosen to foster a ongoing relationship with this practice and themselves through multiple readings.
I see tarot as one of many "ways in," a structured path to self-inquiry. A reading is an opportunity to gain deeper insight into one's present moment and circumstances. I work with Rider/Smith-Waite based decks and tend towards the language of cyclical motion and the elements, with splashes of astrology thrown in here and there. I also place great importance on using spiritual language that resonates with my clients when it comes to their relationship with mystery and the unknown - God? Spirit? Coincidence? Deepest or higher self? I use them interchangeably: what matters is setting an atmosphere of acceptance so that my client can be fully present as we tap into whatever brought them to me in the first place. More on that in the FAQ!
Offering this service to my community brings me immense joy and brings my clients heightened clarity and deep insight.

Quick and easy, this reading offers clarity in the present moment. Mostly offered exclusively to previous clients. Remote only.
Write - up Readings
A new more affordable option for readings. Instead of speaking directly, I will draw cards and summarize the wisdom they share. You'll receive this via email, along with a beautiful photo of the spread!
As this is a new offering, we will chat one on one about what I can offer and what will fit your needs.
Past write-up readings have included one card pulls for a little drop of clarity (occasionally offered via social media specials), year ahead spreads based on either the astrological or calendar year, and motnh ahead spreads with one card drawn for each quarter of the lunar cycle. Exchange depends, of course, on the type of spread, but could range from $7 to $200, depending on the scope.
It is also worth noting that from September '19 to August '20, I will be attending grad school and will have very little time to offer one-on-one readings. I strongly encourage you to reach out about write-ups if you still feel called to work with me!

If you've been thinking about a reading with Sarah but just haven't made the leap now's your chance. My reading with Sarah was full, like bright, glowing full moon full. The best description I can give is full, round and deep. There is nothing superficial. Sarah gives fully then explains and illustrates so you understand. I continue to go back to my notes and grab more insights. Give yourself this gift.

F A Q
How do I prepare for a reading?
The most important thing is to bring yourself in a fully present way to the experience--mind, body, and soul. If you have any sort of energetic practice, be it mindfulness, meditation, prayer, or even exercise, I encourage you to engage with that practice with a little extra attention, intention, and love in the days leading up to the reading, and ideally the day of, as well.
What if I don't really "believe" in this kind of thing?
We'll chat a little bit beforehand about what kind of vocabulary you would like to use throughout the session, so don't worry if the language you might think of as being associated with Tarot doesn't resonate! This experience belongs to you, and I place high importance on finding language that will contribute to that experience, rather than distract from it. Some decks depict gendered figures. Some of the symbology calls in traditional religious ideas of the divine. Whether or not these are systems you identify with, I see these encounters as an invitation to dig into the origins behind a societal construct and how that can offer greater clarity in your life!
Are you going to predict my future?
Probably not. If I do, we won't know until later. This isn't fortune telling, and it doesn’t provide yes or no answers. I like to think of a reading as a very detailed mirror, reflecting back what we may have known about ourselves already but in a new light, or perhaps something we hadn't even considered yet.
I'm not trying to guess at facts about your life, either. A reading with me is most helpful when it becomes a conversation between you, me, and the cards. All three entities have a lot of wisdom to offer. More on sharing those details further down...
Do I need to ask a question?
I encourage clients to come in with a few questions, or areas in which they are experiencing confusion or doubt. I often like to set the intention of a reading around the structure of "What do I need to know about X," or, "What should I keep in mind about Y." Often, after discussing the questions or concerns you bring in, we may find an umbrella question that unites them all-- this is often the case :)
Will I have to share all my deepest, darkest secrets?
A note on sharing the intricacies of your life: I lay no claim to these details. However, the more I know, the more I can help to find thru lines in the reading, and the more certain aspects of a card might pop out with a particular emphasis and clarity. What you share is up to you, and I never want you to feel like you owe me any information. But sharing such details can bring unexpected nuance to a reading, which neither of us could ever have predicted. And of course, whatever comes up is 110% confidential.
