Owner, Certified Pet Loss Grief Coach, Reiki II Healer, Animal Hospice Nurse


About Me: 

Connecting with animals and humans brings me joy. I love working with plants in the garden any chance I get. My soul's calling is to support animals through their final transition, and the humans who love them.

Founding Healing Hands (2010-2012): 

After surviving an extremely trying time in life, along with the death of my beloved dog Rosemary [read My Story : Rosemary's Gift] , it became clear that working with animals is my joy in life. I relocated cities, enrolled in veterinary technician school, became employed by a local holistic veterinarian, and after gaining hands-on experience, became a Reiki healer and launched my own animal care business.


My huge-hearted, animal loving husband was eager to join me on this adventure, and in April of 2012 we opened Healing Hands Animal Care. We are focused on holistic care, addressing the animal’s needs on all levels: mental, physical and spiritual. I am versed in the benefits of energy massage, acupuncture, homeopathy, flower essences, aromatherapy and more, and can refer alternative service providers as needed. I support our clients through all phases of their animals' lives, including the final graduation. I am certified in pet loss and grief companioning and create safe space for clients to process and express their grief.


I offer in-home animal care consultations, intuitive healing, reiki sessions for your animals and one-on-one grief companioning.
