How would you say you help pets and animals the most?
I love that I have many different options to support the physical and emotional energetic aspects
that contribute to healing. I find by supporting both the pet and person, deep healing happens.
What inspires you?
I love learning and have a very curious mind. I am passionate about combining my numerous
trainings and healing talents to best support each pet and pet parent, whether that is with
intuitive sessions or in a clinical setting. I love supporting and deepening the partnership people
share with their pets.
Any big plans or announcements?
Yes, I have a few wonderful things coming up! My first book is currently at the editors. The
book’s focus is about the shared healing journey between you and your pet. It’s filled with lots of
information on the emotional energetic connection between people and pets, how pets serve as
a mirror for deep inner healing and offers some tips on how to deepen the connection with your
pet. I should have the edits back by the end of August and then I can look at a tentative
publishing date. I am so excited for this! I also start the certification course for canine rehabilitation in
