Hi – I’m Andrea. 👋
Beyond who I am through the lens of what I do day to day, I am a self healer. I am wholly committed to the work we are here to do: heal ourselves and work towards achieving some degree of balance in our lives.
I affirm this while acknowledging that a state of balance is not something we will ever achieve. Rather, we are here to seek it, and learn valuable lessons through the act of seeking. 🌀
I am a realist, yet thoroughly optimistic.
I believe in the power of our beliefs and visualizing how we want to feel, while honouring the need for a healthy degree pessimism.
We need a game plan for how to respond to the pain that speaks through people, so we don’t re-act (replicate their suffering) and perpetuate cycles of hurt and abuse.
I know the power of understanding that we carry trauma in our cells, and sometimes (usually at inopportune moments) the suffering comes to the surface, begging to be alchemized through the act of witnessing it. And it doesn’t look or feel cute.
I also know the power of realizing that we weren’t born to look cute for other people, we were born to heal what our ancestors weren’t capable of healing.
Because of that knowing, I am driven to inspire people to forgo filtering their experiences and witness the truth, of what is and isn’t working in their lives. Particularly within the context of their relationship with themselves and others, including work, family, body & mind.
As a creative with an analytical edge, I spends my days researching astrology and holistic wellness techniques while offering intuitive readings and astrological readings to my growing list of clients.
Delving into what cannot be explained about the human experience in an easily observable and digestible way fuels me, and I incorporate what I learn through my deep dives into the readings I offer and my creative life.
Speaking of that: I am passionate about using creative self expression as a form of healing, and balancing the intensity of the studying I do with a lot of laughter!
My loved ones get to see my comedic side on the daily. I’m working on bringing that part of me out into the public sphere through improv classes. 😜 If you were to visit my home, you’d find plenty of scripts lying around as I train as an actor, auditioning for and working on film projects in and around the Victoria, Vancouver Island & Vancouver BC area.
As a writer, gemini energy takes the lead. Ie, I enjoy dabbling in multiple genres.
I am a poet. You can read a small sampling of my poetry here. Over the years my words, in both essay and poetry form have been featured on the Huffington Post, in literary magazines, on various wellness websites, and in the book, Just Words Volume One, an anthology of Canadian writers. I really enjoy putting my analytical abilities and communications training to use as a content consult, too, helping entrepreneurs create empowering messaging for their brand. And I’ve begun to delve into the world of screenwriting.
That’s a little bit about me. Thank you for visiting and reading. I’m glad you’re here. If anything you’ve read resonates, reach out. I’d love to hear from you.
