When I use cards, I use them intuitively.  They are used to elicit psychic impressions, information and probable futures.  I don't do technical readings, where the traditional "meanings" of the cards are used.  These "meanings" vary considerably, depending on the source and authorship.  You get a much more insightful and meaningful experience with an intuitive reading. 

I do not use cards for fortune telling.  They are one more tool I can use to help clients understand and gain insight about their lives.

We all want to know more about the wonderful animals we love and with whom we share our lives.  The animals in our lives have much to tell us, yet we aren’t always attuned to their manner of communication.  This is not a negative reflection of you, because, after all, we can’t all be concert pianists or renowned athletes.   

You don’t have to be experiencing problems with your pet to benefit from a reading.  Our companions deeply appreciate being able to express their happiness and joy or confusion and pain to their humans.  This is an opportunity to listen with your heart and hear things like why your dog or cat or bird (or goat or horse or hamster, etc.) has chosen you in this experience.  The information that comes through is always enlightening, loving and surprisingly filled with humor and fun.

If you are experiencing problems with your pet, a communication session can help.  The issues our animal friends can have are as varied and profound as our own, and yet we often have no practical way of finding out what the problem really is, nor how to alleviate it.   Hearing the problem in human terms is a relief in itself, but discovering possibilities for solutions is deeply comforting and allows for a release of tensions for both you and your companion. 

Regardless of the reason for the session, I connect with the entire family, human and nonhuman, and in this way, I get a holistic view of the entire dynamic.  In other words, everyone gets to “speak”.

And yes, I talk to the ones who've made their transitions (passed on).  Grief and solace are important facets of my work and I can help you on this very sacred journey.

I consider it a privilege and blessing to connect with other species, and I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s) as we move along this magnificent adventure.



Confidentiality is of utmost importance.  Your name and any information associated with you or your reading will never be discussed or divulged without your express permission. 

It's also important to know that I rarely remember a reading for more than a few days, unless you are a regular client.  Occasionally, the reading is "gone" for me almost immediately.    I will remember you, but not necessarily the reading.  For me, once the reading is over, it's over.  I may remember the general tone or topic, but not the details (like knowing you were in history class but not recalling anything about it).

You, and everyone, will be treated with genuine and equal  respect, regardless of your origin, race, religion, gender, age, sexual preference or any other aspect.

Your best interests are at the heart of my service to you.  I conduct my work without causing, or intending to cause, harm.

If I am not qualified to provide certain assistance, I may suggest that you consult with the appropriate professional (medical, legal, financial, etc.). 

You may terminate a reading at any time, regardless of reason.

I do not read for minors.  You must be at least 18 and no longer in high school.  

I do not read for an absent third party.  Even with consent, I reserve the right to refuse such a reading.

I read to the best of my ability.  I will admit when, for any reason, I am unable to do so.

I tell the truth of what I see, but I respect your wishes if you do not want to hear everything I have to say.

I answer questions about the reading to the best of my ability.

I have a small, reliable and trusted network of professionals and I am happy to refer you to someone who can better serve your needs.  

Please remember that you are the only one responsible for what happens in your life.  Make decisions according to your own knowledge and conscience.  No reading from anyone is ever intended to dictate how you live your life.

Whether the person is called a psychic, an intuitive, a healer or a reader, remember that you're hiring a real person.  We are not infallible and no psychic is 100% correct.  Ethical readers do their best to provide you with the information and guidance you need.  Ultimately, only you can decide what to do with the information given. 

Sometimes you won't get the guidance or counsel you seek.  You might hear what you don't want to hear.  ...Or the reader is off and might even be tuned into someone else (usually someone close to you or physically nearby).  

We aren't any more special than any other person.  Because we have certain abilities doesn't mean we are more exceptional than anyone else.  We are all special and we are all in this together.
