Finding the spiritual path: Psychic and spiritual advice business opens in Snoqualmie

One of Snoqualmie’s newest businesses is offering a unique service to those looking for personal and professional life advice. Sammamish resident Paris Evano has begun offering psychic and spiritual counseling at her business, Snoqualmie Psychic Boutique, on the corner of Railroad Avenue and Meadowbrook Way SE.

Evano opened her business in September 2017 as a way to continue her work as a psychic; she moved to Washington from Chicago in 2012. She offers palm readings, tarot card readings, psychic readings, and chakra readings. She says she can help people with their relationship, career, and personal questions.

Originally from Chicago, Evano comes from a family of psychics who have been offering advice and counseling services for generations. She said her grandfather, mother and one of her seven sisters all have psychic abilities as well, and she has been helping her family’s business ever since she was a child.

“I’ve been doing this since I was child, I was gifted with it,” she said. “I didn’t start reading people until I was about 10.”

Evano traveled to several states, including Florida, New York, and Arizona, to offer her services to people asking for spiritual guidance and advice. During her trip to Washington, she fell in love with the Snoqualmie Valley, saying she felt it was a very spiritual place.

In 2012, Evano and her husband moved to Sammamish, where she based her psychic work from her home. After several years, she wanted to return to the Valley and found the opportunity to start her own business in Snoqualmie.

“It’s just a very beautiful place, I came down here to do some research and some meditating at the falls, and fell in love with it,” she said. “I always wanted to have my own business, and I followed my grandfather’s footsteps.”

In her four months of business, Evano said she has seen a wide demographic of people, men and women of all ages coming in to get readings. Evano said that with her clientele in Sammamish and now in Snoqualmie, she has built up friendships with her repeat customers as they return for follow-up readings.

“My readings became, with most of my clients, friendships for five to seven years,” she said. “Some will come in once a year, some monthly, and some every week.”

Evano performs palm, psychic and tarot readings in one sitting as part of the general reading she does for people. She said the readings go into a person’s love life, career, and even past lives.

“Some come in for chakra balancing, some come in for spiritual guidance, what path they need to be more spiritual, what they need to do to be more positive,” she said. “Some come in for their love life, some come in for their career, some come in to find out about people who have passed away, or wanted them to know something after they passed.”

A person’s religion doesn’t matter in the process, she said, although it can help if the person is open to the spiritual nature of her readings.

“I get people who believe in God, those who don’t, all kinds of religions. I respect all kids of beliefs and I can work with any religion,” she said. “Sometimes you need that to get you on the spiritual path of healing.”

In terms of business, Evano said she doesn’t see this as a job, but as her calling, a passion she has been working on for most of her life. She said she does this because she loves helping people and connecting with them spiritually.

“A lot of people ask, ‘do you do this to make a living?’ No,” she said. “I do this because I love doing what I do. This is a part of who I am. It’s to connect with people spiritually, give people the clarity and insight, and try to help them get on a better path.”

For the near future, Evano plans on focusing on her current location, but hopes to one day expand to North Bend as well.

Evano is open for business, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and Sunday only by appointment.
