Work With Me

It is not space that is the final frontier*. It is humans, animals and life itself. Even though we think we understand ourselves, our lives, and our animal companions, it is an honour and adventure to gain deeper insight. With me, you have many ways to explore all kinds of different areas in your animal companion’s lives and your own life.       

(*frontier:  the extreme limit of understanding or achievement in a particular area)

I communicate with animals and people who are in a physical form, and animals and people who have left their physical bodies. I have communicated with people who are not able to talk due to a physical issue, and have even communicated with the fetus of one of my clients before the baby was born, and afterwards, right up until she was able to speak on her own. I also communicate with plants, rocks, and Mother Earth. We can communicate with everyone and everything, since everything is alive. For me, something is someone.

Here are some of the ways you can work with me directly (click on each subject for more details):

Animal Communication Sessions


Speaking Engagements (including Workshops and Seminars)

How To Work With Me

At the beginning of a session, I will ask you a few basic questions about your animal companion such as name, species, age, and description of what your animal companion looks like. If you want me to communicate with a human family member who has left his or her physical body, I also need to know that information.  Then, it is helpful to get some background information from you. This will make it easier for me to put the information that I get from your animal family member into context, so that it is of more value to you.

It is also helpful if you ask specific questions. For example, if you ask your dog companion a general question like, “How are you feeling?”, he or she might answer, “Great,” because right now he or she is resting on your couch with all four feet in the air. However, if you specifically ask about the limping you noticed earlier that day, your dog companion can focus on that issue in particular. After that, you can proceed to ask any question you want, or tell your animal companion anything you want.

The most important point to remember is that a consultation will help you to understand each other better, and therefore improve and deepen your relationship.

During the session, your animal companion does not have to be awake, on the phone, or even in the same room with you. Let your animal companion do whatever he or she wants to do.

Have an open mind since this will help to enhance the whole experience for you.
This is a very special time for you and your animal companion, so relax and enjoy this wonderful experience.

For ethical reasons, I only communicate with animals and people if I have the guardian’s, or the person’s permission. You wouldn’t like it if your neigbour wanted me to talk with your animal companion and ask him or her all kinds of questions without you knowing about it.

In the past, I was approached by a big newspaper several times to talk with the dog companion of the President of the United States. I was offered a huge amount of money and a lot of publicity, however, I declined. I said that I would only go ahead if they could show me that they had received permission from the White House.


What to Expect and Not to Expect During a Session

During a consultation with me, you get the opportunity to have a two-way conversation with your animal friends. You are able to ask questions AND get answers. Get to know your animal friends’ viewpoints on many different issues such as how they feel physically and emotionally, certain behaviours, likes, dislikes, wants, needs, dreams, what happened to them before they came into your life, or if there is something they want to tell you. Maybe for the first time ever, you will be able to see things from your animal friends’ points of view. This will allow you to start building a closer, happier and more fulfilled relationship with your best friends.

Many times, people expect me to tell them everything about their animal companions’ lives as soon as I get in touch with them. Sometimes, a lot of information comes out during the first connection. However, the animals do not necessarily tell me everything about themselves until I ask specifically for that information.

We also can’t just tell our animal family members to do something or not do something and expect them to ‘obey’. If someone told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it? Of course not, so why should your animal companions react any differently! Communicating with animals should be seen as a way to relay information, and give our animal companions a chance to speak out. Most importantly, it gives us the opportunity to see things from our animal companions’ points of view, and lets animals have the chance to better understand our points of view. When we communicate with animals regarding wellness issues, we can’t expect them to diagnose themselves and/or know what’s wrong. I am not a veterinarian, and cannot diagnose health problems either, but I can translate for you how your animal companions are feeling, and what they are experiencing. This information can make your animal health care provider’s job that much easier.


How to Prepare for our Session

Before a consultation, it is helpful if you prepare a list of the main questions you would like to ask your animal companion. However, bear in mind that answering your questions might not be what your animal friend wants to do. Be open; let the conversation happen. We are all equal partners.

Some of the most common reasons why people want to talk with their animal friends are to find out:

  • how they are feeling (physically and emotionally)
  • their likes and dislikes
  • what’s on their minds
  • the reasons for their behaviours
  • their needs, wants
  • what happened to them before they joined the family
  • if they like their food
  • if they are they enjoying the things their family members do with them
  • their life purpose
  • what they want to tell their family members
  • if their animal companions are ready to “move on”
  • if they would like to have a companion

to discuss

  • upcoming moves
  • upcoming veterinarian visits
  • how to help rescued animals
  • how to relay messages to their animal companions
  • how to help their animal companions deal with fears, traumas, abuse

and to

  • check in with their animal companions while they are away
  • discuss upcoming life changes
  • talk with animals who have “moved on”
  • deal with grief
  • relieve stress
  • resolve issues between animal family members, and for many other reasons.

Many times, just talking about an issue and acknowledging it can relieve stress and change an animal’s life.

Here is what people are saying:

Hi Claudia,
R. and I went to see a Psychic Medium giving a seminar and I just want to tell you, there is NO ONE that comes remotely close to being able to connect with energy, like you. Not with the ease, the speed, or the ability to ‘dial up’ someone (or ‘something’). You are amazing and incredible.
