I just only ever really cared about witches.
I've been a lot of things in my life, for better or for worse. Retailer, bank teller, martial arts instructor, professional musician, university lecturer. . . the list goes on. My interests and skills are all over the place and my professional resume looks more than a little unfocused.
But throughout all that, my love for witchcraft and magic has been steadfast. Since I was a little girl I've been obsessed with all things otherwordly. As a young teenager I began practicing a form of eclectic Wicca, but quickly moved into other realms. Now in my thirties, I find myself a Gardnerian witch and high priestess and coven leader actively involved in my local witchcraft and Pagan communities. I maintain a longstanding blog and popular YouTube channel and can be found at a number of east coast summer festivals, as well as participating in the Pagan Studies group of the American Academy of Religion. My love for runes has also left me with unexpected connections to Heathen communities, which deepen and progress with every year.
The movement toward professional witchcraft has been gradual and natural. What began with learning to make my own candles (because I could never find grey, brown, or nearly enough black tapers) quickly got out of hand and turned into piles of clay statues, scrying mirrors, pyrography, and more jars of flying ointment than I could ever (safely) use. I gave things away to friends and covenmates, then began selling a piece or two here and there. Somewhat accidentally, I also began reading tarot and runes at a local psychic fair, which turned into multiple psychic fairs, which turned into reading at a shop for a private client base, which turned into teaching seminar-style classes on tarot and runes.
Widdershins is my way of making some of my services and products available to a wider audience.
I'm a thirty-something Gardnerian priestess operating in Charlotte, North Carolina. Witchcraft has been a lifelong passion and I enjoy making items that serve the practices of others.

Additional policies and FAQs
Readings are confidential. I will not share any part of our conversation with third parties for any reason, excepting where I am legally required to report criminal activity. Your reading will take place in private without observers.
I will be clear and honest about the purpose and mechanics of my divination tool, my abilities, and my educational credentials. I will always avoid jargon, clichés, and other manipulative language.
I will behave in a professional manner, serving your best interests with no intention to cause harm.
As needed, I will help you to formulate productive questions and facilitate a useful dialogue so that you get the most out of your reading.
I do not discriminate based on race, religion, physical ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or personal background.
I do not read for minors without the explicit permission of their parents or guardians.
I will not address questions regarding third parties. Readings are most beneficial when they are about you! Oftentimes questions about others can be reframed in more productive ways, and I will help you to do this where necessary.
I am not a medical, legal, or mental health professional. I am not qualified to provide financial counseling, legal advice, or any kind of medical care. I also will not allow myself to become a substitute for qualified psychological counseling. I will not hesitate to suggest that a client consult these qualified individuals where appropriate.
I am not a psychic. My ability to read tarot is a learned skill grounded in the real world. I do not purport to have divine powers or supernatural abilities. Readings are designed to generate ideas and strategies for addressing your unique situations, tapping into your subconscious mind, and to help you consider possible choices. I do not represent any kind of religious authority.
I am not a prognosticator. I will not predict winning lottery number, times of death, etc. If you need to know if you are pregnant or dying of cancer, you should see a doctor, not a reader.
All readings are conducted under the belief that free will trumps fate or destiny. You are always responsible for your own actions. I cannot be held accountable for any decisions that you might make subsequent to receiving a reading from me.
I reserve the right to end a reading or to refuse service altogether in the event that I feel my personal well-being is threatened or if I suspect the client to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. I will also end a reading if I believe the client to be mentally unsound insofar as a tarot reading may be damaging to the client’s emotional health.
