George's Bio

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples: my philosophy is kindness
— Dalai Lama

George was born in Manhattan's New York Hospital on Dec, 26, 1955. He grew up in the Queensbridge Projects, and the then mostly Italian-Greek section of Astoria, Queens, NY where he spent many hours playing stickball, street hockey and taking the subway to the the Bronx for Yankee games. Upon his family moving to Long Beach, CA when he was 15, he developed an interest in psychology, spirituality and metaphysics with his first purchase of many astrology books to follow. As is often the case with astrology enthusiasts, he started casting charts, and also working with the Tarot for friends and family. This eventually lead to starting a part-time astrological practice and eventually adding other healing modalities during  his thirty plus years of public and private sector management.

 His life’s career journey has lead to such diverse occupations as loan officer, collection manager, accountant, sales representative, handyman, park manager, stay-at-home dad, plant manager, and facilities manager. His experiences in both private and public sectors gives him a practical and empathic understanding of his client’s every day working world and the challenges we all face that are meant to experience on our path toward wholeness.

His goal and purpose is to provide services that assist you in your quest for self- improvement, transformation, healing, spiritual development and self-awareness. I am deeply honored and humbled to gently assist you in the direction of a more productive, spiritual and happier existence.

George retired from organizational life in 2012 and has continued his part-time consulting practice and can otherwise be found enjoying his retirement. George, his wife Nancy, and their cat, Remy live in Durham, NC. They have four adult children and one grandchild to date.
