Tentative Return


UPDATE, 5 April 2018:

The experiment, so far, has been successful, and I am now also scheduling a limited number of phone sessions each week. All other restrictions below still apply.

ORIGINAL POST, 4 March 2018:

I plan, in the coming week, to begin scheduling consultations on a limited basis again. For now, at least, there will be some restrictions which I hope will be temporary as I continue to improve.

  • E-mail sessions, only. Phone sessions are on hold until further notice.
  • Existing clients, only. For this purpose, an existing client means:
    • a client whose account is in good standing, and
    • someone for whom I have done a consultation within the past three years, or who was a regular/repeating client if longer ago than that.
  • I will also be significantly limiting the number of sessions I can accept per week.

Do note that this return is, in essence, testing the waters to see how my health holds up. If things change again, I will make another announcement.

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding.

A Limited Return


Although still buried deep in grief, I realize I must at least try to take a few steps back into the world of the living. Thus, I have been tentatively reaching out (with their humans’ permission) to animals I know well, and find that I have been once again able to connect with them. The connections began shakily, but are solidifying, and I find that I’m moving more towards “normal”.

I intend to continue to gently stretch this ability for the upcoming week (week of October 11th through 17th) with the hopes of returning in some capacity. I am still taking life one day at a time, so I ask for your patience as I progress toward full efforts again.

I hope to be able to start accepting consultation appointments again the weekend of October 17th. However, these will be very limited at first, with the following necessary restrictions:

  • Absolutely no new clients for a while. I will only accept appointments with clients whose animals I have already spoken to within the last year or two, or whom otherwise I know fairly well.
  • Only clients whose accounts are up to date will be eligible. Delinquent accounts are on hold until all past payments are caught up.
  • No phone or IM (live) sessions; for a while I will be doing email-only. I am very sorry, as I know this will be inconvenient to some, but I am completely unable to speak to anyone at all without breaking down.

As things progress, I will announce any changes to the above.

Also, just as advanced notice, there will be a number of changes in 2016 in regards to rates and how the sessions are done. I will release more information as the year’s end approaches.
