Most appointments are completed by phone, in some situations I may come to your home.

About Animal Communication:

Our animals play very special roles in our lives, and miscommunication between you can seem to make everything a little more difficult.

I help people understand the animals in their life, whether they are cats, dogs, horses, pigs, cows – or any other.

Are you wondering what is going on with your animal companion?

My clients have many reasons to call me:

  • explanation for a recent behavior change
  • check in on health needs
  • reconnect, answer lasting questions with a deceased pet
  • assist in blending of new animal families
  • discover what they need or want from us, their people

“Jack took your advice the other day…next day he was back to his old self…he wags his tail a lot more again and barks “   A.L.

Animals communicate with each other sending thoughts, images, feelings even physical feelings, and with practice, we humans can re-establish our ability to communicate with them.  “Talking” with an animal is very gratifying, and helping the human understand why a behavior exists is even more rewarding. Animal communication helps relieve  the animal of any unsettling events from the past, often resulting in a “miraculous” behavior change.

During an Animal Communication I will help you to understand things as your animal does.  You will understand their decisions better, and you can make your choices accordingly knowing why they respond to you in certain ways.

I am a graduate of, and was on faculty at, Communication With All Life University. I now teach workshops and seminars across the nation to further my goal of creating a better world for animals.

Karen, we really appreciate your giftedness, and sharing it with us and the animals! Karen provided us with an amazing reading of our 2 dogs who had passed on awhile back. Not only did she read both dogs to a ‘T’, she also reported images that only our dogs could have shared! Karen, thank you so very much for conveying messages to and from our girls and for respecting, honoring and sharing in the remarkable relationships that we had with them! “ Pat A

Animal Communication Sessions

I can communicate with your animal via a private phone session, a private in-house appointment or as part of a group such as a doggie daycare or barn session.

During a private phone session you email a photo of the animal to me and we arrange a time to talk on the phone.  This can be very helpful for behavioral, training and health challenges and is a great opportunity to deepen your connection with your animal companion.

In some cases animal communication is just the start, to restore harmony there may also be a need for training, veterinary care or body/energy work.

My Top Five Tricks to Naturally Banish Fleas

By on July 17, 2015

Winning in Flea Season- without the chemicals

Every year it happens, some years worse than others, the fleas wander inside on our pets,  into the doggy daycare, or home from a sleepover,  and then it begins.  The itching, scratching, the little red bites on your ankles – time to do something!

But if you’re like me, you want to stay away from dangerous poisons that get applied to your beloved pet or sprayed about the room. So what to do?

Below is my anti-flea arsenal, sometimes I need to use all of them, sometimes just one or two. Everything is completely safe for animals and kids so there is no worry.


For the home:

  1. Diatomaceous Earth (food grade) or Borax.

If you have carpet, sprinkle it on and use a broom to spread it into the carpet fibers. Reapply after vacuuming.  If you have wood or linoleum floors, sprinkle all over the floors and allow to sit for at least 3 hours, longer if no company is coming!  Sweep up and reapply as available. Be sure to get it in the corners good.

You can use these products in pet bedding  however laundering the bedding is more effective.

Furniture can also be treated with these products although a good vacuum and cleaning does wonders.

  1. The ol’ light and water trick.

This may not be the quickest, most efficient, but if you have kids or are just morbidly curious you’ll like this.  At nighttime, fleas will jump towards light. Place a light low over a large shallow bowl or pan of water – be careful so no animals will knock this over during the night.  Place the light 6 to 12 inches over the pan.  The flea jumps to the light, falls in the pan of water, and cannot get out.   If you have a bad flea problem, the morning water can be pretty gross.  Be sure and empty it before your pet drinks from it, and do not just toss it outside as living fleas will then have their second life.



  1. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Comb right into fur, especially around neck. The fleas hate it!



  1. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

I know of animals of almost every species that benefit from ACV in their water, just a teaspoon per bowl, but if your animals are as picky as mine it’s not that easy.  To get them to ingest easily you can use the above mentioned trick of putting it on their fur and allowing them  to lick off, or simply take a paw or tail  and dunk it in a small bowl of ACV/Water. They will then lick that off and into their gut.  Just a side note- if you’re unfamiliar with all the benefits of ACV- google it!

  1. Dynamite Herbal Tonic

Completely natural anti-parasitic from Dynamite products (click here for info).  This I typically give for the week or two around the full moon when parasites are at their most active, longer if we seem to have a real problem.


And that’s it!  It’s never too early to start with the Borax or Herbal Tonic, the more you do now, the less you do later!


The Four Agreements, adapted for Pet Parents
