Mission Statement

We are all connected in the web of life.

Through our compassion and the strength of our commitment, we create effective partnerships with our clients. These relationships provide the foundation for healing the animals.

Our result-producing work teaches and includes our clients in revolutionary mind-body-spirit approaches for restoring animal wellness. When embracing these natural, holistic, and environmentally sound choices everyone involved receives benefits. This work also benefits the quality of life for all beings on this planet.

Our Essence

We share more in common with the animals than we have differences.

The physical body is an amalgam of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects. The qualities creating and maintaining health and wellness, both physically and emotionally, are in a constant state of activity and change.

The heart pumps, meals are digested, stressful situations are dealt with, and love is shared. Meanwhile, timeworn body cells die as the regeneration of new cells provide the hope of health and wellness.

Living is a multilevel process. Everything the animals are exposed to in their environment, their diet, and each experience touches each individual in a unique way. All of these different aspects are interrelated. They also influence each other and have a direct effect in creating wellness or dis-ease.

A holistic approach to healing determines that the most effective path to health and wellness is through supporting all areas of the being - body, mind, and spirit.

What is an Animal Wellness Coach?

The term animal wellness coach describes Leslie's unique ability for perceiving and understanding information from the animals through both familiar and unfamiliar sensing channels as well as how she helps restore balance. When in session she experiences insights by seeing, hearing, sensing, smelling, tasting, and feeling - both emotions and physical imbalances or pains - from the animal's perspective. Other perceptions come through touch, in dreams, through flashes of insight, or other means.
