How Carol Works


Information below includes:


Communication Session Preparation

Carol and the animals work best in a question and answer format, so it is most effective if you plan in advance what questions you would like to directly ask your companion (typically between 6 and 9 for one animal). Most animals have a very deep desire to communicate, and are looking forward to discussing numerous topics they have been waiting to share.  By planning ahead, it is helpful to ensure that the key items at this time are covered during the session.   Your companion will have many opportunities to share additional topics and thoughts throughout the connection and time together. 

The animal's name, breed/physical description, gender, age and a digital photo are needed for the session. 

"I want to send you my heartfelt THANK YOU for helping me understand my girls. I've been so worried about Chelsea's health and happiness, she obviously has enough happiness inside her for the entire world, and I can now help instead of worry about her discomfort. And then there is Popper. I started a journey 2 years ago, not knowing where it will lead me. You and Popper have opened up a new door into what is to come. I'm forever grateful to you both."
- Karla, Illinois

An overview of history (including wellness, behaviorial, and other current concerns) can be helpful to put the animals' feedback into context, but please keep this brief if provided.   The questions/topics are key for preparation. 

The list of questions to include, brief history, and digital photo are to be submitted at least three (3) hours in advance of the scheduled session.   The consultation preparation form is used for this purpose to help easily convey the requested information.  Please e-mail the digital photo(s), one (1) per animal, to This preparation will save approximately 10 minutes at the beginning of the communication session when you call. 

Scheduled Session Time

Once a phone session time is confirmed,

you initiate the call to Carol at that scheduled time on a private phone consultation line (provided to you).  

During the communication session, Carol always lets the animal talk first before she continues  with the prepared questions. This provides your companion the opportunity to relay what they would like to at the beginning. The translation happens sentence-by-sentence, so you will receive the translation almost as soon as they provide it to her.  The session is intended to be interactive, so as you both talk with your companion, you may have some additional questions based on their responses.  Those are simply handled as part of the conversation.

For phone sessions, both the animal and you can be comfortable anywhere in your home during the call.  The animal does not need to be near the phone or in the same room with you during the session.  It is simply important that you are both comfortable and relaxed. A teleconference phone line is used for the session, so more than one person can participate in the session from different locations, if needed. Please ensure that you have a good phone connection for the call. 

(For in-person sessions, depending on weather, you can meet with your companion and Carol  either indoors or outdoors at your home or barn, whatever is most logical to ensure a pleasant session without distractions for humans and animals.)


Recording the Consultation

Thanks again for your help and connecting with Chloe and Riley!  It was so amazing!  Thanks also for digitally recording the session - I've enjoyed listening to it again!  I checked out what the elephant totem says - and it talks about power, strength, and wisdom.  That is a message I keep getting from others about myself, and the second time Riley has mentioned it to me.  I'm going to focus my meditations on the elephant and power and strength, and we'll see where it takes me!

- Cathi, Wisconsin 

During the phone or in-person visit, please be prepared to take notes.  You are welcome to record the session yourself.  Internet digital capabilities are available for recording phone sessions. Within 24 hours following the session, an MP3 audio file of the session will be e-mailed to you, which you can then save onto your own computer. If you would like this option, or if you prefer a CD of the session, please specify that at the time you submit the animal's history and questions for the session. (Pricing for the digital recording and CD options are noted below.)

Statement of Disclosure

Once a session time is confirmed, you will be requested to complete a Consultation Preparation Form .  As a part of submitting the animal's information for the session, you will be requested to acknowledge a "Statement of Disclosure".  This Statement of Disclosure is required in the State of Illinois for alternative animal practitioners.  Basically the statement indicates that Carol is "not a veterinarian, does not diagnose medical issues, offer medical advice, prescribe drugs, or perform surgery". 

This acknowledgement can alternatively be completed through use of the Statement of Disclosure form and submitted separately from the animal's session information.

Animals in Spirit

For sessions with animal companions who have passed into Spirit, Carol request clients to prepare questions in a similar way.  Please provide the approximate date of passing on your session request and/or consultation session preparation form. Carol recommends waiting at least four (4) days following the animals' passing for a scheduled session. This enables the transition energies to be more settled, and the session to flow more smoothly.  

Lost Animals

Carol no longer accepts lost animal cases. A specific list of animal communicators who accept lost animal cases, is available by scrolling to the bottom of this international directory listing. Additional lost pet resource links are also included there.

Intuitive Healing and Additional Modalities

"Your interpretation of Juniper's identity (now "miss beauuutiful!!) makes perfect sense given her stoic nature. Since our session, I have been telling her how beautiful she is, as she requested, and amazingly , she wags her tail when I tell her!! I've also given her a job to distract her from her self-imposed "time-out" phase, and although the re is still room for improvement, she does appear to be happier, and it is easier to get her involved in the activities around the house. I am looking forward to using flower essences to enhance her coming out of her shell. I wouldn't have known to do any of this without your help. Thank you!!"
- Judi, Kentucky

In addition to Animal Communication, Carol offers and incorporates various intuitive healing modalities into her work with clients. Flower Essences, Aromatherapy, and Healing Touch for Animals may be suggested to further support the animal/human relationship and integrate the changes you and your animal desire to experience more fulfillment in your partnership.

Guidance to various modalities may be suggested based on what is likely to be most helpful and practical based on the feedback from the animal, and prior experience.  If you are already working with other practitioners in these fields, Carol will suggest that you return to discuss the session findings with them, and that you jointly continue to work together from there.  Some of these resources are noted on this website's links page.

Carol frequently refers clients to other trusted holistic animal care practitioners and professionals who work with these options and other modalities. For a national listing of holistic veterinarians, please see AHVMA/FindVet. .  When a communication session is requested, you will be asked for the date of your animal's last veterinarian visit.  It is expected that all cases of sudden behavioral changes, including litter box issues with cats, be reviewed and tested by a veterinarian prior to requesting a communication or healing session.  Please do not delay proper medical attention. 





Session Fees

Phone Sessions:  Single Animal

Carol does the majority (99%) of her consultations via phone. First time sessions for one animal are usually 40-45 minutes, based on 6 to 9 questions, and the fee is $95.  Additional time is in 15 minute increments.

In-Person Sessions:  Single Animal

In-person sessions are at a rate of $125 for the first hour (minimum), and $30 for each additional 15 minutes. There is an added travel fee of $60 per hour (based on time to and from Pekin, IL). The information telepathically received from the animals is the same regardless of whether it's via phone or in-person. 

(In-person visits are not done with aggressive animals.  These must be scheduled as phone sessions only.  This enhances the effectiveness of the telepathic exchange for both parties.)

Multiple Animal Sessions:  Phone and In-Person

For multiple animals, you may have more questions for some, less for others. Carol's rate is $125 for the first hour, and $30 for each additional 15 minutes.  She usually suggests working with the oldest animal in the household first, or the one who has been there the longest (out of respect). 

Even if you only have one or two questions with specific animals in the group, please estimate a minimum of 10-15 minutes for each companion to share during the call.  This will keep things respectful and relaxed for your companions.  A good estimate for multiple animal sessions is 15 minutes for 3 questions for a companion, 30 minutes for 6 questions, and 45 minutes for 9 questions.  For two animals, 7-8 questions each, a session estimate would be 60-75 minutes, depending on the types of questions and depth of conversation.

Established Clients:  Phone Sessions

Established clients may request sessions less than 45 minutes since you have already spoken and established a rapport with your companion through a prior communication session. For existing clients, when requesting a session, please use the guidelines noted above (15 minutes:  3 questions, 30 minutes: 6 questions, and 45 minutes: 9 questions) to estimate session length for scheduling purposes.  Minimum session length is 15 minutes ($35). 

Cancelled or Missed Appointments:  Phone and In-Person Sessions

There is a $35 fee for sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.  Missed appointments  (no call/no show) will be charged at the scheduled session rate since the session time could not be rebooked.

Intuitive Healing:  Long Distance and In-Person Sessions

I have to tell you that since the intuitive healing session that Posey has not only come out of her shell lately, but she is also a much more pleasant cat to be around.  She is spending much more time out of the basement, and right at this moment she is sitting by the back door close to Patty Pan (the rival cat).  Actually, they are touching!  She doesn't hiss at the dogs nearly as much and just seems happier.  I finished building the cat house and it is out in the back yard.  Now they can hang outside on nice days and they have been in there every day this week, and there has been no fighting or hissing.  All is well!!  Thanks again for your help.  I think it has really made a difference!

- Peggy, Illinois

The majority of healing sessions (99%) are done long distance.  An Intuitive Healing Support session incorporates various healing modalities. Available for both animals and humans since many concerns and emotions are often shared and interconnected.  Long distance (suggested and preferred to allow for optimal relaxation and benefits) includes up to a 15 minute phone discussion following the healing session to share and discuss findings.  Incremental consultation time will be at the base rate ($30 for 15 minutes). 

You are encouraged to schedule an hour healing session ($125) to allow for optimal energetic release and benefits/anchoring of the potential shifts.  Session increments of 45 minutes ($95) and 30 minutes ($65) are also available.  

(Situations will vary based on spiritual guidance received during the healing session, so if less than the scheduled time is needed based on input from spiritual guides or the animals during the session, this guidance is followed.)
