"Joanna’s ability to translate the individual voices of my three animals — my dog Ming and cats Puffkin and Spunky — is uncanny. She not only gets the information I need to help them, but she also captures each animal’s unique way of communicating.
Joanna's healing abilities have especially helped Puffkin to recover from life threatening physical problems. It’s miraculous that she has returned to her vital self in so short a time. Her healing sessions have resulted in consistent progress! Joanna is always there for my companions, offering warm support, clear messages, and solutions to any problems that need attention."

"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 animals.
Joanna helped make this challenging experience more joyful."

"I first contacted Joanna when my cat Henry was seriously ill with cancer. I knew very little about communication and spiritual healing. Over a period of two months, Joanna did weekly sessions with Henry. It seemed that his physical problems were troubling him less, and there was a sense of deep rest and calm in him.
Joanna's sessions gave us the opportunity to express things to each other that had been left unsaid and to resolve issues of separation so that we could both let go. I was able to say goodbye, knowing that our last two months had been filled with the deepest expression of our love for each other."

"When my golden retriever Brandy was diagnosed with breast cancer, Brandy and I worked with Joanna on a weekly basis. Joanna very specifically and accurately described Brandy's physical, emotional and mental state. She was always able to find out what Brandy was feeling and what she was needed.
I feel that without Joanna's skill, tenderness and deep admiration for animals, Brandy would not have lived so long."

"Joanna's communication and healing work came at a time when my beloved cat Mish-Mish developed a cancerous tumor in his jaw. Mish was nearing his 17th birthday and had enjoyed a healthy life with me. Joanna's healing work and prayers comforted me and helped me cope during a very difficult time. It also calmed Mish and eased his pain. Her insight, intuition, and advice during his illness and passing were invaluable."

"I originally called Joanna more than two years ago because our Labrador puppy, Sarah, was very ill with severe diarrhea and vomiting. The vets did all kinds of tests but couldn't figure out what was wrong with her.
I consulted Joanna, and Sarah began to improve the very next day. I believe that without Joanna's help, Sarah would have died. As part of Sarah's healing process, Joanna helped Sarah with her fears of separation and abandonment.
The turnaround I saw in Sarah began to change my mind about things. I have since quit graduate school and have begun training with Joanna to become an animal communicator and healer. Not only did Joanna's professionalism, skill and expertise save Sarah's life, but it changed mine too!"

"I first contacted Joanna when my cat Buddy was diagnosed with fibrosarcoma. We did several sessions with Buddy alone and then with my cats, Andrew and Thomas. I grew much closer to all three cats and opened my ability to communicate with them as a result of our sessions.
Some time later, Thomas became ill. The night before he died, we had a session in which we both were able to tell the other how much we loved each other. He said he would let me know when he was ready to go. And the next morning, he did. That conversation and healing helped me get through the weeks that followed his death."

"I found Blanca, our beautiful white German Shepherd, running down Sunset Boulevard. Thomas and I fell in love (with Blanca) instantly! She had been abused and suffered from many emotional issues. She adjusted quickly to us and did very well in her new home. One day, she panicked crossing a street. She deteriorated until she would not leave the house.
After our first session with Joanna, Blanca began making marked improvement. She was calmer and could go into the front yard again. After a few sessions, she was acting much more like her old self -- only better, happier and more self-assured. She had more personality and was more affectionate. Blanca continued to improve over time and recovered her joy of walking and living. It was as if Joanna showed her how to heal."

"When my beloved cat Snowflake had a serious health crisis in her 13th year, I fell apart. Fortunately, a long-time friend gave me Joanna's number.
We arranged regular sessions from which everyone benefited. Joanna helped me to hear and respond to all my pets' needs and wishes, providing guidance and healing as well. I watched in amazement as all my "kids" began to grow and evolve, radiating peace, acceptance and love. Snowflake lived nearly three more years with a wonderful quality of health. At the end, she was able to clearly express to me when her time had come. Joanna and I continue to work with my oldest cat, Lucy, who is now quite elderly but very peaceful and happy at the end of her life.
So much has changed for the better since Joanna came into our lives. We cannot imagine life without her."

"Nelson and I were shocked to find out that our 3 1/2 year old Australian Shepherd (Seamus) had severe arthritis as a result of hip dysplasia in his right hip. We decided to go with a total hip replacement. In the course of making this decision, I strongly felt that animal communication (which I had recently found out about) would help Seamus understand what he was going to be facing and what we needed to do to aid in his recovery.
Seamus was very appreciative of the fact that he was informed as to how and why this very major medical procedure would take place. Because he understood how important it was to stay inactive during the two-month recovery period, he accepted this without protest (an amazing feat, considering that he is a VERY active dog) and never licked the four-inch incision site.
These sessions also were beneficial for me. My perception of Seamus changed. I had always considered him a wonderful dog but, as a result of the communication, I came to regard Seamus as a fellow sentient being from whom I can learn a great deal. Thank you Seamus and thank you Joanna."

"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) friends."

"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 loving cats.
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!"
