I offer Animal Medicine Card Readings and Life Guidance in Los Angeles. I discovered the Animal Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson in the early 1990’s and have been teaching people how to use this elegant system for introspection ever since. Through their work, I discovered that the animals all around us are our relatives and our friends. The animals are talking to us all the time and when we take a moment to listen and respond, we gain beautiful insights about ourselves and our world.
Card reading is a highly effective tool for introspection. I work with a variety of decks but my primary passion is with the Animal Medicine Cards. Working with Animal Spirit Totems is the art of conversation and creative connection. What energy is needed in your life at this time? Has the Hawk come with its talons? Or is the mouse hiding in the walls?
I teach people how to work with power animal guides as a fun, creative way to locate wise council, develop intuition, and reconnect with the natural world. When we meditate on the gifts of the animal kingdom, we find new solutions and deepen our understanding of how we are all connected.
I offer two types of Animal Medicine Card readings.

Different And In Depth
“…the way you have explained is purely beautiful. I am at a loss for words… It was like seeing me outside of me and it answered every question I had. Thank you so very much. You are truly amazing. Your work is so different and in-depth- unlike most others…”
A Confident And Clear Teacher
“Jessica turned what I expected to be a plain old reading into a spiritual journey for me. With every step, I felt I was being guided by a confident and clear teacher. Jessica speaks with a calm and honest voice and creates a warm and peaceful atmosphere. She truly listens to any and all questions her student might have and answers with a wealth of knowledge and insight. I have a deeper and more profound understanding of myself knowing that I have help and guidance from all living things if I trust my inner knowing. We are all connected, and Jessica is a teacher who can shed light on questions about our true nature. She is a wise and beautiful person; a true medicine woman. ” -A. from California
I’ll Never Forget It
“I received a reading as a gift and had no idea such things existed. To be honest, I was wary at first. But it was really helpful! And really fun! The conversation was so easy and creative. Jessica has a rare skill in describing things but what I liked best was when I asked a question about what I ought to do about a situation in my life she said, “I don’t know. What does this animal make you think of?” And just by discussing the nature of an animal I found the answer I was looking for! I’d never thought about animals in this way before but now, it seems perfectly natural. I highly recommend giving this reading as a gift to someone you love. I’ll never forget it. Thank you, Jessica!”
Thorough And Exacting In Her Craft
“I’ve had many animal card readings by Jessica, including the totem, and from each reading, I learn something new about myself. She is thorough and exacting at her craft and has always led me to a place of better understanding. Knowing my totem animals has allowed me to witness my behavior from a more objective viewpoint. Jessica’s readings make understanding the inner workings of your mind enjoyable.”
A Safe And Magical Space
Jessica created a safe, friendly and magical space for a very insightful reading. She was very welcoming and I appreciated how earnest and thorough she was, even going over the time limit out of pure enthusiasm. She did a great job explaining what a medicine card reading is and was so informative throughout the process. I definitely left the reading feeling more self-aware, fulfilled, and more open to grand mystery. The readings have only revealed more as time goes on.”
A Profound Experience
“The ceremony to discover my animal totems actually changed my life. I feel a bit cheesy saying that and had never done anything like this before, but with Jessica, I had a profound experience of insight and understanding of myself in the world. Knowing what animals to look to for guidance and how to better listen to the symbolism of animals has given me a feeling of being comfortable in the right skin. The ceremony has exposed me to strength and wisdom of various kinds within and outside myself and strengthened my connection with the natural and spiritual worlds. I can’t recommend this enough to anyone interested in learning more.” – A.A.H.
