Born in the South of England, Jenny Suzumoto has lived in Portland, Oregon since 1995. Jenny is a counselor, spiritual director and tarot reader and runs a private practice offering tarot consultations and tarot workshops focusing on helping individuals live expanded and exuberant lives.
Jenny has been engaged with the healing arts for over thirty years, studying and exploring Western Psychology, Eastern Mysticism and our universal human intuition. She holds a B.A. in Psychology from Marylhurst University and a M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. Her studies focused on depth psychology with an emphasis on Jungian studies. She is a trained Spiritual Director and holds a Certification in Contemplative Listening. Jenny is also a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki II Practitioner. Her extensive experience as a body worker reinforces the importance of the body-mind connection in her practice.
Jenny has worked and lived in Europe and America, learning from a wide range of psycho-spiritual traditions and integrating these different approaches. Jenny’s passion for self-inquiry and spiritual growth has brought her to practice meditation, yoga and T’ai Chi, and study healing traditions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Tantra, Kabbalah and Shamanism. Jenny’s mystical studies include the tarot, which she loves with heart and soul. A long term student of the tarot since 1990, she has been giving professional readings for fifteen years, and began teaching 10 years ago. Jenny sees the tarot as a guide and tool for the eternal human journey through life, into wisdom, love and healing. Used with respect and understanding the tarot is an instrument of great potency that informs us of many dimensions. Jenny's holistic approach reflects this deeper richness and is both grounded in everyday life and connected with invisible dimensions of the spirit.
Jenny’s relationship with the tarot began with a fateful reading in London 1986, when a characterful tarotist relayed with surprise, “Oh My! You are going to be with a scientist and live far away from England!” Jenny laughed and dismissed it. Six months later, while traveling the wilds of Alaska, she met her future husband, Bruce… who just happens to be a scientist….!
