How it Works
A full length session begins with you informing your animal that I will be contacting him/her. This respects and informs them, and can provide ground work for a respectful exchange. An animal that is not given notice may be reluctant to share.
I will get to know them a little and then ask questions you have for them. I take extensive notes, then call you to discuss the session. This is not timed; I give each animal the time she/he needs. Conversation with you is not timed either. The flat rate for this is sliding, $55-$85 payable to me via personal check. Session begins after payment is received.
Please note that consultations with animals that have passed are often very helpful and can be just as informative as with the living.
Please send the animal’s photo in the body of email (not via text). Face must be clearly visible, eyes open, no one else in the frame. Include animal’s name, age, gender, how long they have been with you and, if known, where they came from. List questions you have for them, include your full name, and best number where you can be reached. I will call you once the session is complete to arrange a consult time.

"I gazed into the universe of Wesley's eyes daily for 19 years. We communicated spirit to spirit. I can't really explain it, but things occurred to me when I listened to him - thoughts that were not my own."

"How it is that animals understand things I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, without even making a sound, to another soul." ~Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess
