Wedding of Ashley & Jeffrey

I know I’m dating myself, but I grew up with the delightful TV show “Mr. Ed.”  I’ve always known that animals could “talk” and express their sense of humor and tell us what is on their mind.  While in reality we must listen to their voices on the telepathic plane, they are nonetheless wanting to express themselves and want very much to be heard, and in most cases, they have a lot to say!
I’ve always known what my animal companions were telling me.  It was a very subtle and natural thing.  I call it  “Intuitive or Active Listening, for lack of better words to describe this natural skill. 
When animals want to show me something, I often see a picture, or watch a video with my mind’s eye. 
Offering the healing energies with my heart and hands has also come as a natural gift.  As a kid, everyone loved the massages I would give.  I thought I’d grow up and become a Physical Therapist.  But life had other plans for me. 
Now, the work I do with animals is my passion.   I thrive on the complete trust and love that I receive from every animal. There is nothing more rewarding.  It makes my heart sing!

Background and Training

Animal Communication:
I am a graduate of Carol Gurney’s comprehensive Heart Talk Program ® of telepathic Animal Communication. Carol Gurney, is internationally known as an Animal Communicator, Author, Lecturer and Teacher.  This program involves over 200 hours of training and specializes in going that step beyond.  Connecting with your animal companion is just the beginning.  I want to help you resolve those difficult issues,  and enhance the quality of life for you and your animal companions. 

I can help you address: 

  •      Emotional and Behavioral Problems
  •      Health Issues
  •      Making those end-of-life decisions with your companion
  •      Connecting with your companion after death


Holistic Care:
I have practiced various energetic “hands-on-healing” techniques since the 1970’s.  I am a Reiki Master/Teacher for over 20 years with an active Reiki practice helping both humans and animals.    I teach Reiki classes  and workshops sharing touch therapies for animals and their people.

I utilize all of my skills to provide a unique combination of touch therapies to help animals and their people.  I am dedicated to helping our animal companions heal on all levels, spiritual, mental, emotional and the physical level.  I have found that animals love the Body Balancing techniques and Reiki Energy.  It helps to support their entire body and energy systems. 
I am a Certified Hypnotherapist and member of International Hypnosis Federation where I have been a convention presenter. I am a member of International Association of Reiki Practitioners (IARP) and Shibumi International Reiki Association and hold certificates in various healing touch therapies including:
  • Reiki Master/Teacher Usui Western Style since 1996
  • Level III Shinpiden Master & Teacher Attuned by International House of Reiki, Frans Steine, Member of Shibumi International Reiki Association since 2011
  • Jikiden Reiki - Shihan Kaku (Assistant Teacher)  Attuned & registered in Japan with the Jikiden Reiki Kenkyukai (Institute) since 2012
  • Akashic Records Practitioner
  • Integrated Energy Therapy  (I.E.T.) Level 3
  • Pranic Healing
  • Body Balancing Techniques for Animals
  • Canine and Equine Healing Touch for Animals
  • Tellington Touch for Animals
  • Certified Crystal Practitioner & Teacher
  • Emotional Freedom Techniques  (E.F.T)
  • Reconnection Healing Practitioner

Combining the Holistic Energy techniques with the Animal Communication is a natural combination.  Your animals can tell me exactly where they hurt and how they feel.  Results are measured  by your animal’s behavior and attitude following the session.  Just like people, a series of sessions might be required.  I  can also teach you techniques that will prove to be helpful for physical relief to your animal.

Ordained Minister:
I became an Ordained Minister in 1989.  In 1995 I obtained my Doctorate in Theology.  In 1996 I was elected the  Co-Pastor and Board President of the Universal Church of God and Institute of Applied Religious Sciences, Inc. now DBA Spiritual Light Ministries or

I teach at the Theological Seminary of Southern California, helping Metaphysical students achieve their goal to be of service to humanity within their Ministry.

I also love to officiate at weddings and offer other pastoral services.  If I can be of service to you in this area, please contact me.  

Memorial services for our animal friends are also a specialty.
