About 

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

 A Calming Tarot River of Peaceful Clarity.

My name is Ann Marie, and I carry the  American free spirit gene as a full-time Psychic Reader, Empathic Life Coach, Author, and  Iowan.

 

The oldest daughter of three sisters, I am the granddaughter of a New York artist who, as a boy, escaped the orphanage and in 1919, painted his way across America on trains and an Indian Motorcycle.

My scholarly schoolteacher grandmother, Margaretta, worked her summer as a cashier. and met Grandpa at a small town gas station. This happens when a bored farmgirl meets a complex artist, leading to my mother's birth.  Franklin and Margretta Grew lived in Baxter, Iowa, for the rest of their days.  Here is a picture of my star-struck. Granny-.Margretta.

Writing Is In My Blood.  Psychic Reading is My Calling

Like my Grandfather, whose life was center-staged between his painting shed and domesticated lifestyle, I work from my Angel Studio, giving readings in person and online. I am a wife and a Mom of one son, and many adapted animals. Writing is in my blood. Psychic Reading is my calling. 

 

My mother has been my mentor, and as the oldest daughter, I have seen her on stage acting, mesmerized as a little girl in the audience. Life was filled with colorful women, Afghan Hounds, and drama, I loved my sweet schoolteacher father and adored eating breakfast with him in the early mornings. My mother's friends loved music and art. All of this led me to see the world through the lens of creativity and education, 

 

At the age of nineteen, I discovered my lifelong psychic gift, and after raising my son as a single mom, I became a full-time psychic advisor at age fifty-one and own my own studio shop. Life has been good. 

 

My Discovery of Tarot 

Three decades ago, I discovered my first deck of Tarot Cards in a French gift shop in the University town of Iowa City, Iowa.  In 2001, I left my conventional job to become a full-time Intuitive Tarot Life Coach for two leading online advisory lines.  Because life is complex, and so many people crave direction I am blessed with wonderful, loyal, and new customers. I see my intuitive gift of accuracy and cozy Midwest style as my niche. 

 

My Studio

I opened my Midwest studio, "Maries Safe Haven,"  in 2001. on a tree-tunneled lane in Iowa. An eleven-foot-tall bicycle made from American Steel tractor parts is at the end of my lane. 

Certified Psychic, Hypnotherapist, Reiki Practitioner

In 2011, I became certified in Hypnotherapy, which strengthens my ability to convey the messages I feel and see. in a positive, direct way with the wordage I use.  I am also certified in Reiki One & Two and combine all modalities in my readings in a calming Tarot River journey.
