Information below includes:
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, and age are needed for the session. Pictures are not necessary, but if the session is by phone, it is helpful to have a picture for the consultation, and for future use if additional conversations become scheduled. E-mailing photos works very well if you have digital capabilities, so you do not need to send the original photographs. Any original photos sent are returned once the session is completed.
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 brief history and the list of questions, is to be submitted at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled session. The consultation preparation form can be used for this purpose to help easily convey the requested information. This preparation will save approximately 10 minutes at the beginning of the communication session when you call.
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. An alternative phone conference line can be used if there will be multiple people on the call. 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.)
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.)
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.
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 form, and forward the questions for your companion prior to the scheduled session.
For lost animal cases, the sessions will typically be 20 to 30 minutes only. This provides an opportunity to receive first impressions regarding the potential condition and whereabouts of the lost animal, and convey energetic guidance on how to assist in reconnecting with your companion. Lost animal cases tend to be accompanied by strong emotional stress factors, so it is important for the animal to sense their person being grounded and centered during the conversation. This will enhance the communication exchange, and subsequent search.

Intuitive Healing and Additional Modalities
In addition to Animal Communication and Interspecies Life Awareness Coaching & Consulting, Carol offers and incorporates various intuitive healing modalities into her work with clients. Bach Flower Essences and Aroma therapy 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.
These options are discussed with you based on the insights received during the communication session with your animal companion. If you would like to specifically request information regarding a particular modality, please do so during the session so she can also discuss with you and your companion. Guidance to various modalities will 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.
Carol frequently refers clients to other trusted animal care practitioners who work with these options and other modalities, as well as practitioners and professionals who convey a positive and holistic approach. 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 the 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.
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 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.)
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 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).
Minimum for a lost animal case is $55. A 30 minute lost animal session is $75.
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.
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.)
Both Phone and In-Person communication sessions are available.
The majority of sessions (99%) are done via phone.
Phone sessions are available at these times (all Central Time):
Please specify your time preference when using the session request form, or session options when requesting a session via e-mail or phone.

Once a session time is set, you would send the additional session information (brief history, along with questions for your companion) via a Consultation Preparation Form
Then, call Carol at the time on the private phone consultation line (provided to you).
In-Person session availability varies based on location, as well as travel and event commitments.
(For in-person sessions only, Carol will reconfirm the session prior to leaving for your location. Session reminders are not done for phone session appointments. Please note above that there is a policy for short notice cancellations and missed appointments.)
Intuitive Healing Sessions will be specifically scheduled at times which are condusive for calmness and relaxation to achieve optimal benefits for you and your animal companion.
