Maribeth has been called to work with pet families who dearly love each other and yet, are facing tough animal issues. She uses her intuitive animal communication and energetic healing skills to address animals’ physical, emotional, and behavioral issues.
She is especially gifted in helping pets and their people move gracefully through transitions – into your family, moving from your family to a new family or onto the next life.
She helps people find peace and comfort knowing that they have made a good decision because it is a joint decision with their animal.
To bring a greater depth of love, compassion and comfort into human-animal relationships.
In working with me, clients awaken to their intuitive abilities. They begin to understand the world from the animals’ perspective. This expanded perspective opens their hearts in many unexpectedly ways, all of which further healing for the earth, its peoples and animals.
Maribeth had her first spiritual experience at 13 in the woods near her house. She had the audacity to ask God if God existed and received a resounding YES in a very overwhelming experience! Hence, the name, Sacred Grove.
Her spiritual and intuitive development continued through a number of avenues, including a two-decades study of dream interpretation. In 2007, she had an intuitive hit that people needed therapeutic massage, so she became a massage therapist. She then became a Reiki Master, and Quantum-Touch energy practitioner. Throughout this time, her pets were communicating with her, but she did not “get it.” She thought it was just her imagination.
Things changed when she and her husband Charlie adopted Tibor. Tibor had a number of aggressive and anxious behaviors along with physical scars that were surprising for a dog who was only 16 months old. However, Maribeth kept seeing a vision of a dog biting a man’s arm each time she sat next to him on the couch. Unsettling, right?
She then began her formal animal communication training, expanding her abilities through training in psychic development, Sacred Contracts and Ancient Archetypes, Spiritual Dog Training (she is not a dog trainer) and Akashic Records reader.
Maribeth is a retired Navy officer who subsequently worked for senior staff in an association. She and her first husband, Winston Coye, had 2 great kids, Patrick and Andrea. Winston passed unexpectedly in 1998 when the kids were 8 & 10. She has always felt his guidance and protection around her kids, which is a great comfort.
Maribeth remarried Charlie Decker and they live with Stella and Tibor, their dogs; AND Mac and Brick, who are officially Andrea’s cats. Patrick lives about 2 miles from her in Alexandria, Virginia. Andrea currently lives in New Zealand. (Maribeth had to do some intuitive communication with the cats about why they weren’t with Andy anymore; it’s all good.)
Maribeth has a BS from the University of Buffalo, a Masters from the University of Maryland, and MS from the Naval Postgraduate School. She graduated from the National Massage Therapy Institute and is a certified massage therapist
