Izolda Trakhtenberg

Born in Moldova in the former Soviet Union, Izolda grew up steeped in the rich heritage of Eastern Europe. She spent her first few years listening to great-grandmother’s the folk tales about subjects as diverse as plants, stones, the weather, people, and reading regular playing cards.

When she was six, her family left Moldova and immigrated to the USA. During her high school years, Izolda combined her great-grandmother’s teachings of reading regular playing cards with an intensive study of the Tarot. Over twenty-eight ago, she began reading professionally and conducts readings at corporate events, parties, weddings, for various DC area organizations, and privately.

Izolda utilizes Tarot, palmistry, body mechanics and language interpretation, graphology, crystal divination, energy work (including Reiki and Chi energy), therapeutic creativity and other forms of intuitive guidance in her divination work.

She released, “Life Elements: Transform Your Life With Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, her book on the ancient Alchemical Elements and their relationship to Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Tarot, Astrology, and self-actualization, in 2008.
