Clients describe a variety of experiences following sessions. Most important, the human client will feel a closer connection after reading the transcript and understanding the messages from their animal companion.
The animal may behave differently, or display new habits or behaviors. Physical symptoms may change or subside, particularly when LifeLine is included. With animals who are older and possibly near physical death, they will often agree on a signal to help their human family know how to help with the transition.
The session usually lasts 20-40 minutes. I begin with the client’s questions, and the animal will guide the dialogue from that point. I will ask for clarification when necessary and record the session on my computer, providing a transcript of the entire communication. The only changes to the transcript are to correct typos and insert observations about voice quality, personality or physical sensations.
The client has the opportunity to ask questions or seek clarification via email or telephone following receipt of the transcript. This may include a quick check-in with the animal (no more than 3-5 minutes). If necessary, follow-up sessions will be scheduled at the client’s request.
Sometimes, the animal will reach out to me after the session. When this happens, I ask permission of the client to do another session.
We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves.
And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.

I am not a veterinarian, and do not claim to diagnose physical conditions. Animals often do not care about specific diagnoses, but will attempt to communicate about a specific issue if their human companions are interested in these details.
The animal is a sentient being with a conscious will, and may or may not choose to change behaviors. The animal may also decide to leave the physical body rather than heal or receive medical treatment. I neither advise nor attempt to override the animal’s wishes or intent. The session is not meant to replace any medical treatment or substitute for veterinary care.
If you talk to the animals
they will talk with you
and you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them,
you will not know them,
And what you do not know
you will fear.
What one fears
