“A tarot reading session with Jamie is as much about the way you react and relate to the interpretation as it is about their interpretation itself. Their goal in reading is not to predict your future, but to offer insights as to how we can reflect on and relate to our lives— how to engage with a difficult moment, or prepare for new challenges, or rethink our relationships….I always leave a reading with them feeling more centered and more hopeful— and their readings have often been catalysts for new perspectives and important decisions in my life.” —C.W.

Hi! I’m Jamie. I read tarot by asking for a question about your life—silly, serious, anywhere in between—and pulling cards to help you look at the situation through a new lens. I don’t tell the future, but I can help out with the present. Cards work equally well if you think they’re magic or if you think they’re random: tarot is for everyone!
