Where People and Pets Heal and Connect

Success Stories

Is animal communication real? Does it work?

Good questions that should be asked and answered.
Like any modality, perfect results are tough to guarantee. This is especially true because we’re interacting with both animal and human personalities and peculiarities. But most times, the results are heartening.

There is no need to take my word for the heartwarming results – here are success stories and testimonials from my clients!

About two years ago, my husband Dan went out of town for about two weeks. One of our cats, Dolly, was used to sleeping on him every night. When Dan left, she started sleeping on me.

At first, I enjoyed it and felt comforted by her purr and warmth. But soon I just didn’t sleep well at all. I was trapped most of the night as she was a long, big cat. One night I decided to sleep on the couch downstairs to keep her from sleeping on me. This went on until I finally had enough.

I cannot put into words what peace and comfort Maribeth, and her communication with my cat before and after passing, have given to me. I first reached out to Maribeth to discuss my cat’s health and well-being. She described my cat’s health challenges (later confirmed by a battery of tests by my veterinarian.) Maribeth explained what my cat needed in terms of diet and supplements.

Jennifer & Maia, Virginia

I went out of town recently, leaving my husband Dan to take care of our kitties, Molly and Dolly. I always sign up for Maribeth’s Postcard from Your Pet when I leave town. Molly was having such a hard time with me being away – hiding under the bed even when it was time to eat – that I asked Maribeth to please help.

Michele & Molly, Maryland

Our adopted rescue, Suki suddenly started waking me up at 3:00 AM to go out.  She had not done this before, and she did not go to anyone else on the nights I was not home.

Jen & Suki, Pennsylvania  

As soon as I hear someone facing difficulty with an animal in their house, my first recommendation is to talk with Maribeth.  Maribeth helped us with a dog, Grace, in her last months before transitioning. 

Jen & Grace, Pennsylvania  

Mini, an un-neutered male who lives outside, doesn’t trust us 100% but is warming up and depends on us for food. We’re sad that other cats are fighting with him.

I thought life would be easier for Mini after being neutered. But I didn’t want the procedure to break our bond.

Maribeth understood how much I valued our relationship. So, she focused on connecting Mini and me at the heart level. What a breakthrough session!

Diane and Mini, California

We noticed our cat Javier’s food intake was decreasing, and he was losing weight. He was diagnosed with early-stage kidney disease. We wanted to support Javi’s eating but weren’t sure how and hoped you could guide us by connecting with him. The results of our session with you far exceeded our expectations! 

You sensed that his stomach was upset, making it hard for him to eat. You found out which foods worked best for him. Based on your conversation we changed his food. He has increased his food intake on average from 30-50% since your communication with him! And he is awake more and has been more playful. He has more energy than we’ve seen in months! 

Stacy, Dave, and Javier, Pennsylvania

Your communication with my bird S. to prepare her for rehoming was exactly what she needed. I could tell she understood what was happening when the people picked her up.

She’s been there about two weeks, and it’s all coming together perfectly. The latest message said, “She’s already a member of the flock!” I couldn’t ask for more. 

You were an integral part in making this successful for all of us. 

J.B. & S., Washington State 

Seven months ago, I adopted a very fearful, anxious, adorable kitten. Although I did my best to surround her with love, she remained anxious, like a human with PTSD. I didn’t know how to help my kitten—until I met Maribeth.

Not only did Maribeth help me “see” the specifics of the very real trauma that occurred to my kitten, she walked me through the process of helping her heal from it, concluding the session with beautiful affirmations to about how “it is now safe to relax and play and be happy.”

Within an hour of our session, my kitty approached me with a totally different energy.

E. Perlman & L.H, Oakland, CA

‘My horse got upset when I closed a gate and I felt scared of him. Maribeth took me into a deep and powerful session. She got an insight about a past life I had with this horse and we removed the energy of trauma. With her help we created new energy of love and connection and new affirmations.

I didn’t know how many skills Maribeth had! She is not only an animal communicator but an energy healer as well.’

Irina Mihaela & Amore, Canada

I really appreciate the work you did for my puppy, Beau and I!  Beau has been real good with not going poo in the house.

My dog, Suki created a habit of wanting to go out at 3 AM for a potty break. So I wasn’t getting any sleep.”

Our dog, Zeus had become really clingy. We wondered if he was worried about family issues and wanted to do an overall welfare check.”

My beloved cocker spaniel Brandy contracted painful eczema on her butt, causing her to lick and scratch herself intensely, leaving an open wound.

for our kitties, Oliver and Larry, while on holiday.
When we arrived home about three hours after Maribeth (intuitively) checked in with them, they were quite relaxed.

“Our older dog, Bella the Beagle-mix, had endured a lot of changes over the previous year, including the loss of her best dog-friend, a trans-Atlantic move, and a newborn child – our first.”

Allison, Bella & Mini Mollema, Virginia

Our two English Bull dogs (Jack and Henry) were extremely close.  Jack passed away at age 10 and Henry became completely out of sorts.  He had to go to the bathroom constantly and got up at ALL hours in the middle of the night, scratching at the door to go outside.”

Erin B. and Henry

My horse, Tica has been at an equine hospital for two weeks. Within hours of our session, she started showing improvement from conditions no doctors could explain.

Anna & Tica Virginia

After our talk with my 30-year-old horse, Joe in February he certainly did perk up! Our agreements (discussions) worked – he shares more energy as long as I bring happier energy.”

Sara & Joe, Virginia

Fancie’s back to almost 98% of her old self. She regained her appetite, takes all her meds like a champ, and again pees outside, which has her feeling more confident overall.

Fancie & Alex, Virginia

“Before our session, B was constantly following me around and complaining. He huffed, barked, and stared constantly.”
