1. How long have you been communicating with animals?
I’ve been communicating with the animals since taking an Animal Communication class in November, 2001. I practiced on my friend’s animals for about six months before I was comfortable with my degree of accuracy.
2. How does one communicate with animals?
They communicate with us all the time using pictures, words, and feelings. One of the best way to communicate with animals is to come from a heart space, no judgment so they feel safe to share with you their feelings. Communicating to them using telepathy while sending pictures and words is a very effective way.
3. Can you share with us, one of your favorite animal communication stories?
One of my favorite communications was with a horse who we were wanting to find out if she wanted to be a “Mom”. As I was speaking to her she sent me this “STAR TREK” energy about being a Mom and being the “final frontier”. It turned out that this horse was once owned by William Shatner and she also starred in a Star Trek movie. I did not know this before the reading. How it impacted the owner or the animal or both? It was validation for the person who had the horse that I really did talk to her and also to show just how smart animals can be with putting something into the reading that only the person would know.
4. Do you prefer to communicate with younger or older animals?
Doesn’t matter to me. The puppies and kittens are harder because they have a hard time staying focused to talk to me, but it’s doable.
5. Do you prefer to communicate with a certain type of animal?
I love talking to all animals. I learn so much from each species, so no favorites. I mean, do you do better with cats, dogs, horses? Dogs and horses are easier to talk to, cats have their own agenda and there is a certain finesse when talking to them. Do you even talk to reptiles? I haven’t talked to a reptile yet. I have talked to wild animals, such as skunks and birds.
6. How do your services work? I do all my communications from my home so I can have complete focus and quiet to really “be” with the animal without distractions. Do you come to my home?
It’s not necessary for me to come to your home. I also think it is disruptive to the animal to have a stranger come to their home. Do I bring my pet to you? Again, there is no reason to bring the animal to me. My degree of accuracy is high when I do it using telepathy from a distance. Do you communicate LIVE? Not usually, but I do communicate to my own dogs in person sending them pictures of what I would like for them to do. I don’t communicate LIVE with animals because the method I use works better at a distance. It’s an automatic writing process that puts me in the “space” to communicate.
7. What do you charge for your services?
I charge $55.00 for a full reading. $21.00 for check-ins with one question if I have read your animal before and established a relationship. Do you have a package deal? I charge $100.00 for two animals, $145.00 for three.
8. Why do you think animal communication is valuable?
I believe animal communication is extremely valuable. It can help you know how your animal feels, what they want or need, prepare them for trips to the groomers or vets, let them know about vacations, find out how they want to transition, check in on them when they have transitioned from time to time when you miss them. To really understand your animal is priceless and helps deepen the bond between the both of you. It’s a heart connection on the soul level.
9. Do you think if a vet would incorporate animal communication into their practice it would be helpful?
I think it would be very helpful. I do not diagnose, but I can find out how the animal feels and what’s going on, so that would be valuable to the vet. I have worked with a holistic vet and what I get has been validated.
10. Are you able to communicate with an animal in the after life?
Yes, energy does not cease to exist, it just changes form. Think of it as going to another radio station, another address or how a snowflake changes form. They still exist, personality is still intact, they just don’t have their body anymore and are free.They go to a space of love and bliss when they leave their body. It really is heaven. How does that work? I talk to them using the same technique I do for all the other animals, connecting the same way. They are very happy and wise and can see things from a different perspective when they leave their body.
