"I have to confess that I
was initially skeptical that anyone could
actually communicate with animals.
However, the first time I worked with Joanna, I
knew that she was communicating with my dogs.
What she reported they said "fit" each
of their individual personalities - and she had
never met them. Through Joanna's work, my dogs
began to change their relationships with each
other and work out difficulties. And, my
experience of and relationship to my dogs began
to shift. I gradually grasped a new level of
communication with my dogs - something I'd never
experienced before. The only explanation for this
is the communication and healing work Joanna did
with our family.
This has changed my life because I know now on an
experiential level that humans aren't the only
beings who think, feel and communicate."

"Joanna has been a real partner in helping me to navigate my way through making the best choices I can for my cat, Zoë. Joanna is there as an objective but thoroughly compassionate voice, someone who listens and doesn't judge, who eases my heart when it's heavy with what I'm perceiving as painful decisions. She does this through her kindness and caring and certainly through her ability to communicate with Zoë and tell me how things look from the cat's point of view. It has been revealed—to no great surprise—that Zoë is the calmer one of our household duo, who weathers storms and my concerns with aplomb. I completely and wholeheartedly recommend that anyone who loves his or her companion animal have a few sessions with Joanna; it is unbelievable, but true, that the sessions will deepen a bond that is already so deep it is indescribable."

"I was led to Joanna by
my dogs' vet. Her work with Tuscon and Barney has
provided me a great sense of peace and a loving
relationship with my dogs. She has helped me see
how my inner turmoil affects my dogs.
I am thankful and grateful to Joanna for the work
Evans, Tuckaho, NY
"Joanna has been an
extraordinary healer for my family. She guided us
gently through the death of a beloved cat a few
years ago, and then helped the remaining cat
through his grief and loneliness. When we finally
brought a new cat home, Joanna worked with both
cats to help the older one shift some very
destructive behavior patterns. The two cats are
now friends and have, with Joanna's help,
weathered together the experience of bringing a
new baby into our home.
Words can barely express the gratitude we have
for Joanna. I recommend her wholeheartedly to
anyone who loves their animal companions."
"I came to Joanna to help me better
understand my animals, especially Soho. She
helped me open my eyes and heart to greater
spiritual understanding and wisdom. I learned
about grief, surrender, making space in my heart,
the purpose of love and compassion, and about
healing for myself and my animals."
Susan Kalev, New York, NY
"I came to Joanna because
my four-month-old dog, Camoun, had been attacked
by four dogs, and I wanted to be sure I
understood what was going on inside him. After
the last healing, something changed dramatically
for Camoun and me. I now seem to get through to
him in a way I never had before."

"Joanna's healing and
communication work with our companions (Lila,
Bhakti and Dharma) has had a major impact on our
interrelationship as a family. All rescue dogs,
they have learned to accept each other and to
interact peacefully. Working with Joanna has also
been instrumental in building our confidence in
our abilities, as humans, to communicate with our
We cannot recommend Joanna's healing and
communication work highly enough. It has taken
our relationships to a deeper level."
& Richard Mayer, New York, NY
Working with Joanna has been a blessing for me and for my animals. Her talent and insight have helped me through all kinds of situations from moving, to illness, to introducing new animals to my household. Joanna has helped me not only with my dogs (Luka and Chloe) but also with my iguana, my bird and even my struggle with the plight of animals in general in this world. Since I have been working with her (about 7 years now) I have a better understanding of my pets and my relationship with all living creatures. I can't imagine not working with her and those who are hesitant to call her are missing out on so much."

"I had a phone conference
with Joanna when I was preparing to introduce a
dog into my two-cat household. I am a down-to-earth
person and was skeptical about animal
communication, but I was desperate.
Joanna's reading of the situation was so sensible.
She revealed the feelings of each animal, and
they were accurate and consistent with their
personalities. Understanding the concerns of each
party (including me), and how I could affect the
situation, had a calming influence on me and the
Joanna helped make this challenging experience

"I met Joanna several
years ago when took her Introductory Workshop on
Animal Communication and Healing a
wonderful learning experience!
This past year, our very special and
beloved cat Fred had some medical problems.
Joanna did some healing sessions with us. Through
these sessions, a greater understanding and
healing bond developed between me, my husband and
Fred. Joanna has inner peace and a great sense of
humor. Her ability to become one with the
interconnectedness of all life allows her to
communicate with animals and for healing to occur.
"Joanna helped my cat Jack make a major difficult adjustment. Jack was a stray in Bermuda that I found while on vacation. He went from sharing a peaceful home environment and being the focus of everyone's attention, to abruptly trying to cope with the introduction of two new puppies. Each time Joanna spoke with him, I could immediately see a difference in his behavior. Joanna's communication with the puppies, Keira and Bandit, also helped to ease Jack's anxiety.
Joanna's sensitivity not only helped Jack make a transition, but allowed me to deal with a stressful situation. The developing relationships between the three animals are a work in progress, but one that I'm sure Joanna will continue to help us manage!
"A friend of mine
in Holland told me wonderful stories about her
friend in the U.S. who communicates with animals
and gives them healings. This friend is Joanna.
I called Joanna and she gave my
dearest cats, Pim and Noescha, a healing. What a
wonderful experience! I have learned so much
about my cats and how to communicate with them.
Joanna taught me about their feelings and how
what they feel is connected to my feelings. She
helped my very sensitive Pim adjust when we took
in a third cat, Niels. My cats have had several
healings with Joanna, and they have become more
Every time I feel something is
wrong with my cats, I immediately call Joanna and
she lets us know what is going on in their lives.
It's very special to have a friend like her, and
we all love her!"

"I called Joanna
because my 15-year-old kitty Nermal slipped a
disc and could barely walk. She was in pain,
shock, and nearly paralyzed. As if that were not
enough, my younger cat Toonces became afraid of
Nermal. He began hiding in corners and lost
interest in everything.
Joanna was able to tap into
them immediately. She described their
personalities and interactions so exactly that I
knew she was with them. She offered tons of
advice and gave me information that helped me
communicate with them better. I believe she
helped to heal them. Nermal is scooting around
again and Toonces is back to his old self. I know
both of them better now. I am very glad I called
Joanna. She is quite remarkable. I have
recommended her highly to my other (human)
