How Does Animal Communication Work?
What happens during an animal communication session?
The goal of the session is to give the animal a voice. Animals can have the most interesting and curious things to say when we give them the space to express what they want! I connect with your animal friend telepathically – we do not need to be physically in the same place to do that. I usually use a photo of your pet to connect with them. I then relay what they share with me – this may be through images, feelings, words, smells and more.
I think of myself as your animal translator and I do my best to share everything your animal friend conveys to me. I also have questions I move through as they seem appropriate, and pet owners can ask questions too. This is an interactive experience, and animals are usually very interested to engage with their humans in this way.
Sometimes animals want to receive energetic healing work and they ask for it in a session. Similar to humans, when animals have negative or traumatic experiences, the experience can get stuck in their energy. The technique I employ can help to release these emotional scars from the animal’s energy. I do this with the animal’s and the owner’s consent.
Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST for short) is a gentle, non-invasive healing technique that balances the polarities and energy in and around the body. The technique can be done both in person and at a distance. I was certified in BEST in 2011 and have used the technique extensively with humans and other animals.
BEST was originally developed by a chiropractor for healing on humans. A special BEST procedure was adapted for infants, young children and animals. I was drawn to learn the animal BEST procedure for my own pets, and as I have spoken with more and more animals, they have asked or encouraged me to use the technique with them. This does not come up in all sessions, but if it does, it usually requires less than 5 minutes of our session time.
Thirty minutes is usually enough time to talk with 2 animals at most; sixty minutes is usually enough time for 4 animals.
If you have a problem or serious issue with one or more of your pets, it is best to allow at least 30 minutes per animal.
And, yes, I can communicate with your animal friends who are no longer with us in the physical world, although it is best to wait at least 7 days after their passing to do a session.
If you have questions, write them down and bring them with you!
Sessions are conducted via Zoom and are recorded so you can listen back later if you wish. You can connect with me in Zoom via computer, tablet, mobile, or regular telephone. Detailed instructions will be sent once your session is scheduled.
Is Your Pet Lost?
If you are here because your pet is lost, please send me an email and tell me a bit about your situation. I don’t personally work with lost companion animals, but I likely can refer you to another animal communicator who does.

Look forward to connecting with you!
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you talk to deceased animals?
Yes, with the only caveat being if your animal friend is recently deceased, it is best to wait at least one week after their passing to do a session.
Although some animals are able to communicate right after their physical deaths, my experience has been that I'm able to get a much clearer reading for you if we wait a minimum 7 days after their passing.
The loss of an animal friend is a huge topic. If you want to learn more about the animal perspective on grief, death and dying, check out the playlist on YouTube here:
Are sessions remote or in person?
Generally, private animal communication sessions are conducted remotely via Zoom. Remote sessions are just as effective an in-person sessions, sometimes more so.
If you feel there is some special circumstance that we need to meet in person and you live in Boulder County or the Denver Metro area in Colorado please send me a message describing your situation. Travel fees may apply for in-person sessions.
If you're curious about workshops and practice sessions, these have also been delivered remotely since 2020. It's possible that in-person workshops will resume in 2021 depending on how the pandemic continues to unfold. Be sure to join the newsletter to learn about upcoming events.
Do you work with lost pets?
No, I don't do communications with lost pets at this time. If your pet is lost, send me a message and I will do my best to connect you with an animal communicator who does work with lost pets.
Do you do healing for animals?
Yes. I am trained and certified by Morter Health System in Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST). I frequently use this healing technique with animals when appropriate. BEST can be implemented during remote sessions. This is most frequently part of an animal communication session, not a separate session on its own.

Can you teach me how to communicate with my animal friends?
If you're interested to learn how to communicate with your animal friends, I suggest you sign up for the Introduction to Animal Communication Workshop. Workshops are offered throughout the year virtually.
It's possible that in-person workshops will resume in 2021 depending on how the pandemic continues to unfold. Be sure to join the newsletter to learn about upcoming events and to learn some of the very basics about animal communication.
Can my friend and/or relative join the animal communication session?
Yes, anyone you would like to be with you during your private animal communication session is welcome. Please keep in mind that you will want a quiet space during the session, so if you have young children or other distractions in your space you will want to make arrangements so you can be fully present.
If your friend/relative lives in the same location as you, certainly invite them to be in the room with you. If they live in a different location, all you need to do is forward the email with the directions about how to join the session to your friend/relative, and as long as they are somewhat savvy with Zoom and technology, it should be no problem for them to join us.
For workshops, each registration is individual. If you have friends or relatives who would also like to attend a workshop, they will need to register separately.
Can you help diagnose a health problem with my animal?
I'm not a vet or other licensed animal health professional, so I cannot give you a diagnosis for any health problems.
What I can do is relay how your animal is feeling, relay anything they tell me about symptoms they are experiencing, and relay anything else I see from my own vision about their physical bodies or their energy. Some vets and animal health professionals are open to hearing this type of information, and this may aid your vet in providing a more accurate diagnosis for your animal.
Although animal communication and traditional veterinary care can compliment each other, animal communication is never a substitute for proper veterinary care.
Can you solve a problem with my animal in one session?
Maybe. This depends on a number of factors.
Sometimes there is something that your animal friend needs to get off their chest, and sometimes that is enough to help bring more harmony into the household.
Oftentimes the root cause of behavioral issues is much different from the animal's perspective than it is from the human perspective.
Sometimes animals will request certain changes in the home. Sometimes any changes you seek in your animal's behavior may largely depend on how much you are willing to change yourself.
Sometimes problems are more complex. Especially if there are a number of humans and animals living together, we may need to talk to all the animals to get a full view of what's going on in the home and to find best resolutions. (If you have many animals and think you need a session longer than 60 minutes, please email me so we can set up an appropriate length session).
Also, with health problems and issues related to past trauma, your animal may respond better to BEST (Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique) energetic healing with a series of treatments. However, some animals respond immediately to one session and don't seem to need follow up. Every situation is unique.
More complex issues may require a series of sessions, but of course the frequency is always up to you.
My goal is to help you and your animal friends find mutually beneficial ways to resolve any problems, and similar to any exchange or negotiation process, it might take more than one meeting to bring the level of harmony you seek.
Please remember when you schedule your session that if you have a serious issue with one of your animals to allow at minimum 30 minutes with that animal. It's difficult to get to the root of the problem and to learn what may need to happen to facilitate a change with any less time than that.
Even after problems have been resolved, some humans like to check in with their animal friends a few times per year or even every month. There doesn't need to be a problem to meet for an animal communication. In ongoing regular sessions humans get to know their animals on deeper and deeper levels.
Thank you so much Tracy!! Your compassion and love for animals is beyond amazing. After losing our sweet dog, you were able to help me with closure and understanding the final transition hours. I am so grateful for you. You are such a special person with a very special gift. Again, thank you for all you have done for our beloved dog and our family. You are truly amazing!
Thank you for the lovely session. It was very nice to sit in vision space with someone so talented and I am better able to rest on my column knowing the cats are there with me spiritually. The session with you brought me so much comfort and peace at a time when I really needed it. I was doubting my own ability to connect with my cats, and you helped restore my confidence in myself.
Since that time, my relationship with the cats who share my home has deepened and I am trusting myself more which is making it easier for me to flow with the changes in my life. "

Tracy has read all of my animals before and even horses I've considered adopting and she has always been very accurate and helpful! Often she confirms a feeling I have about them and sometimes there is new information I needed to know as well. Regardless, I find the animal communication readings with her really help me to bond better with my critters as I better understand them and they also feel heard. I highly recommend a session with her!
-Kate Neligan, Equine-Partnered Life/Career Coach, Longmont, CO
That was really an amazing session today. It was different than I expected-- which is probably to be expected. I think you have an incredible gift, and I thank you so much for sharing it with me. I have only positives to say about you. I really appreciated learning of who you are through the Timebank so now I can have you as a resource for my pets. I definitely would recommend you highly to my family and friends!
-Gina, pet owner, Maryland
The session yesterday was excellent. I am very impressed by your skill. You got the essence of each of them and the communications seemed very clear. Thank you!
-Karen Chen, Texas
Loved the workshop! Tracy and Kate are wonderful teachers who really love animals. They offered large and small group experiences where we could practice connecting with live animals and photos of animals and get feedback. I was so encouraged..

Our newly adopted cat Poppy is an elderly cat, now living with our 3 younger cats. Poppy was freaked out by the high energy of our cats, especially the boss cat Mia. During our session Tracy asked Poppy what was bothering her, and what we all could do to make her feel more comfortable. Poppy made a number of requests, which we all followed as best we could, and became a lot calmer and trusting from then on. A subsequent session was all it took to bring harmony to the house, Highly recommended experience.
Loved the Animal Communication Practice Session. I really learned a lot - and you're right, practicing makes all the difference. I need more of it. I never believed I could get communication images from an animal's photo -- but when I relaxed and opened myself to the possibility, it was amazing how much I could visualize or even 'hear' - though it is not hearing as in hearing words, but more in sensing words through images/colors for me. I think it CAN manifest through sound, though I haven't experienced that yet. The animals usually do want to communicate if humans are willing to try.

Tracy has such an incredible gift being able to give animals a voice! I’ve had a couple sessions with her and am always amazed by specific parts of my pets personalities that come out during the sessions! She also helped me communicate with a pet who recently passed away, and it brought me so much clarity and peace. I’m always excited for the next time I meet with her!

Tracy completely exceeded my expectations!
Before I connected with Tracy I had never worked with an animal communicator before. I was interested in the idea, and a little bit skeptical. When a good friend told me about Tracy I knew she was the one I wanted to call. Any skepticism I had quickly went away as we began our first session. Since then Tracy has been an invaluable resource for Moonie, my cat, and I a number of times over the last few years. Working with Tracy has provided me with insight into our dynamics & relationship (as well as those with some neighborhood cats that had taken up residence on our property), and has offered me greater clarity in navigating some big decisions and life transitions that were going to affect both Moonie and I. With this insight and clarity I was able to move forward in planning with greater ease and confidence. In just 30 minutes Tracy is able to provide a huge amount of information and insight in a very straightforward and easy-to-understand manner. I'm always surprised at how much information she offers in just half an hour! I can't recommend working with Tracy enough. (And I think Moonie would agree!)

Hi, Anja from Belgium here! Sinds 15 years I live in the woods with several cats. The last year I didn't found solutions with the regular vets for several physical problems with my cats. Talking with my cats trough Tracy gave my a clear insight how to help them and with result! Tracy gives the communication of the cats very accurate. She's also very professional. I can highly recommend here!
-Anja Lammens, Belgium
Thanks so much! I’ve done two other animal communicators and this was definitely the most detailed and best. Appreciate it!
