Answers to your questions


Trixie (photo © Anna Saunders:

What do you charge for a reading?

Please see the sessions + rates page. Email if you have any additional questions or concerns.

Where do you hold sessions?

UPDATE (JULY 2017): In-person readings are currently not available. Our reading would be conducted over the phone. I can come to your home (limited to the Los Angeles area), or I can do readings over the phone. I also appear at selected events in the Los Angeles area. Please see the events calendar for my schedule.

Do you have references?

Please click here for testimonials.

Do you do phone readings?

Yes. I don’t need to be physically near the animal in order to do a reading.

Do I need to send a photo of my animal?

No, that’s not necessary for me, but if it helps you, please do.

How long does a session last?

Typically 30-60 minutes.

Do you speak to deceased animals?


Do you read only animals?

Inevitably, the reading is as much about the guardians as it is about the animal.

Do you tape your sessions?

Not currently, but you’re welcome to do so if you wish.

Do I have to “believe” in this for it to work?

No. An open mind helps, but it’s not necessary to “believe.”

Does everyone in the house need to join or be there?


Do you ever not connect with an animal?

Occasionally. If that happens, there’s no charge.

How long have you been doing this?

Informally, all my life. Professionally, since 2002.

Do you read only dogs and cats, or can it be any animal?

Any animal. I’ve read ferrets, mice, snakes, horses, bats, parrots, guinea pigs and turtles, just to name a few other animals.

Do you keep your sessions private or do you share what the animals say with others?

I share only by permission of the client.

What do your parents think about this?

My mother has passed on, but my father thinks it’s great!

Does this conflict with any religious beliefs?

Not that I’m aware of.

Is there any special preparation needed?

On your part, you might think of a few questions that you’d like to have answered. On my part, I meditate beforehand, but otherwise, there are no crystal balls or tarot cards involved, if that’s what you’re wondering.

Does distance matter?

No. It doesn’t matter where you call from.

Are you a cat person or a dog person?

I’m agnostic about that. I love turtles.

Do you have a book?

Coming soon-ish!
