Rev. Dr. Lindsey Halpern-Givens

Rev Lindsey photo (2)Rev. Dr. Lindsey Halpern-Givens is fascinated with symbolism and color and continues to explore both in her personal and professional life.  In her work as a counselor and chaplain Lindsey uses her knowledge of symbols and colors to find understanding of life events and to help others create meaning and depth in their lives.

Lindsey also teaches and uses a method of creating meaning with found imagery called SoulCollage®.  She finds that this inspires and assists others in finding themselves.  The SoulCollage® method allows each person to create a snapshot of each individual life and to clarify or sometimes codify events or situations.  The process of creating helps heal the spirit.

Lindsey finds that Tarot and/or Oracle cards help empower people to understand who they are and how they can use a reading to guide and change their lives. Lindsey believes we are co-creators with the universe.  Card readings allow us to approach life with a positive energy and spirit.  In each reading Lindsey helps clients access their inner wisdom and gain greater understanding of their lives.
