My life’s mission is to bring you and your animals together to facilitate healing, happiness, and improved communication.
Remembering Our Connection To Animals
Once, long ago, people and animals knew they were deeply connected. So much has been lost since then, and I am honored and so grateful to be among those who have chosen to restore that connection, to reintroduce you to your animal companions, so that your friendship

My work is a loving, compassionate and respectful means to bring improved communication and healing to everyone involved. Once you begin to communicate with your animal friends, your life will never be the same. And neither will theirs.

Does Your Dog Have the Right Name?
My friend Annette is the first client I ever had. She’s out in Arizona now, and she adopted a dog a few months ago who has turned out to be a handful. His name is Duke, and that’s the name he came with. I had a few sessions with him early on, and he’d settle down for...
Euphemisms for Euthanasia (“put down” is a put down.)
I had an interesting exchange the other day with a client regarding the words we animal caretakers use for euthanizing our beloved companions. She lamented the routine use of phrases such as "put him/her down," and she asked me if I had any alternatives that sounded...
