I arrived on this planet with a deep love and respect for animals. When I was a child, the character I most identified with was Dr. Doolittle. I thought that talking with animals was the coolest thing that anyone could do and did not know I had this ability. While I took care of, rescued and advocated for animals for many years, it was not until Hurricane Sandy gave me the courage to follow my heart and speak my truth that I realized I had been communicating with them all along.
I have spent decades in spiritual training/practice and received a Certificate from the Mani Center in Spirituality. Studying and earning my Certificate in Animal Communication at The Sedona International School for Animal & Nature Communication gave me a lot of practice communicating with different species, as well as animals who have passed over. To encourage people to honor our relationships with animals, I founded an annual event held in Rockaway Beach called ANIMAL ROCK. In my spare time, I wrote a bi-weekly column in The Wave Newspaper, “Jill’s Healing Wave”, and worked with the Commons Cluster of the UN NGO Major Group contributing nature-inspired recommendations to the United Nations. I hold an MSW from Hunter College and an MBA from Columbia Business School. My counseling and coaching experience give me the tools to effectively and sensitively talk to people and their pets.
My greatest life lessons have come to me from animals. When faced with my dog’s cancer, I learned about holistic health and healing. This opened up doors I never knew existed and completely changed my life. By the time she passed, we were both ready to let go. It is an honor to help others experience the beauty and intimacy of the bond with their pets. I help people and their beloved animals connect soul to soul and heart to heart, whether those animals are in physical form or have passed on. As a voice for animals, I help them express their wishes and fulfill their missions with their human companions. I clear up misunderstandings, facilitate forgiveness/the release of guilt, and help people and their pets experience the peace, joy and love that is the truth of their relationships.
“Jill, your natural flow transformed me, and I was an active participant in the conversation. The experience freed me of the human guilt that I was carrying. I can still visualize their energy and know that Zoe and Oliver are happy and free and with me. I felt your authenticity and know that you are the real thing. You are Gifted and a Gift. Your Communication is a Gift. I know that you will bring others comfort, too.”
