Frequently Asked Questions

How long is an appointment?

Initial appointments are generally a half hour to an hour depending on how many animals you want to talk to. It's important to allow the animal as much time as they need to tell us what he or she wants us to know. Animals are individuals and some may take a little while to become comfortable talking about important matters, especially if they have had abusive or traumatic experiences in the past. My experience has been that we will be able to understand your animal and his or her situation at a deeper, more healing level by allowing time during our appointment for the animal to become comfortable and for us to explore the situation at the depth and pace that best suits the animal.

What is the cost of an appointment?

Please go to the Appointmentspage for prices.

How do I pay for an appointment?

Payment can be made by check and mailed to me. When you book your appointment, I will send you my address. I will have PayPal coming soon!

How much notice do you need of a cancellation?

I ask for at least 24 hours notice of a cancellation if you’re unable to keep your appointment.

Do you need a photo to communicate with an animal?

It's not absolutely necessary but I like to have a photo of your animal during an appointment for reference. It's great to have pictures of other animals in the family since they sometimes pop in with valuable information. Pictures of the people in the family are nice to have as well.

How do I get my photos to you?

You are welcome to send photos by email or regular mail, but please leave plenty of time for receipt of photos if you send them by regular mail.

Do you return photos sent by mail?

It’s difficult for me to return photos sent by regular mail, so please do not send your only copy. If you want to have a photo returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope and I’ll do my best to return it.

Should I make a list of my questions for my animal(s)?

Some people find it helpful to make a list of their questions and concerns before an appointment so they don’t forget any of them while we are talking. We are not limited to the questions you draft and will just follow where our conversation with the animal(s) leads us. You don’t need to send the list of questions to me ahead of time but you’re welcome to do so if you want.

Can I talk with more than one animal?

We can talk with as many animals as we have time for, but I don’t like to hurry any animal in order to get to all animals in one appointment. In my experience it’s better to schedule a second appointment if necessary and give each animal the time they need to express themselves.

Do I need to be with my animal when we talk?

Since animal communication takes place outside of third dimensional time and space, it’s not necessary for you to be with your animal during an appointment. Wherever you are, it's important that you are able to relax and not be disturbed so you are able to give your full attention to the session.
