Crystal Anzalone portrait

Crystal is the Metaphoric Arbitrator of a clients inner journey through the narrow passage between what is known and what is unknown. When one seeks the outer guide to understand the inner confusion that they carry, the right interpreter is critical, for sometimes confusion is mistaken as uninterpreted illumination.

Crystal is an interpreter of the soul who understands the arduous journey from the Cimmerian caverns of the deep sea and the adaptations required in the slow ascension.  Read More
