I’m Nicky, an intuitive tarot reader and the lady behind The Van Mystic. In addition to tarot reading, my loves include plant medicine, dream work, and making art. In the Summer of 2017, I decided to leave the corporate design world so I could focus full time on my dream of helping people, using the tarot as a guide. I also left to fix up an old van with my partner and travel the country! Without a doubt one of the best decisions I’ve made. After an exciting few years of travel and adventure, we decided to put down roots in the Santa Cruz mountains.

My style as a reader is to empower you to claim your best possible outcome. Of course, tarot is predictive in nature, but my overall objective is to give you the tools you need to shift your energy towards your highest potential and greatest good. I am not here to deliver a finite outcome and send you on your way, as I don’t believe anything is set in stone (Outside of external events beyond our control, of course! Although even then, we get to choose how we react to and handle these events). I always say that readings are based on the energy as it is in that moment, and after you receive the reading you can choose to make different choices and shift your energy towards a different outcome. A tarot reading should leave you feeling understood and affirmed, give you a clear idea of where you are heading, and offer you tools to shape your experience for the better. That being said, my approach is direct and honest – I won’t sugarcoat the truth, but I will show you the silver lining!
