I am so delighted with the conversation that Kathy and I (and my two cats and one dog!) had several days ago. I learned important information that has helped nurture my relationship with my pets. Specifically, I am so appreciative and relieved that with Kathy’s help, my dog and I were able to work through some boundary and behavior issues. I have noticed a complete change in my dog; we are on the same page now and connecting more deeply than ever. What a gift. I’m so happy I found her!

I find Kathy to be warm and wonderful and very skillful at bridging any distance between me and my dog. She interprets what my dog is telling me and helps the bond between my dog and I grow.

Kathy was an incredible godsend when my little foster dog got lost a week after we got her. I phoned Kathy , and with patience and communication with my little foster... we found her after being gone for a week.

Kathy is a true miracle worker! After adopting a dog who had been returned to the Humane Society three times with severe separation anxiety and destructive patterns. I scheduled an animal communication session with Kathy for help.

After communicating with Kathy, my rescue dogs behavior has improved markedly.

Kathy is an incredibly gifted soul.
