A "Power in the Paw Session" is an intimate and personal process that connects both guardian and pet at deep emotional, spiritual and often mysterious levels. It often involves healing for both the guardian and pet and takes them into levels of consciousness not previously reached. Developing an understanding of the sacred contracts between guardian and pet creates an opportunity for the guardian to reflect on behaviors, situations, and conditions that have presented in the family.
The relationship of these behaviors by the pet to certain situations within the family can be explored, explained and often healed. Guardians are able to learn how the events in their lives directly affect their pet and to understand the correlation of the events to the pet behavior. Each session is unique to the guardian and pet, even when they have multiple sessions because the life events and the way that is processed is so very different. You can expect to be challenged, to have your purr-spetives come up for assessment, to be surprised by the connections you find between you and your pet. This is not a cookie cutter, rote, by the book formula because you and your pet are not those things.
This is a process that is unique to each family and pet. I can provide support from the beginning when there is a diagnosis, aiding the family in developing a strategy for managing the diagnosis all the way through the final moments. The structure again is different for each family but it can include home care and supportive modalities for the pet, active communication with the pet to determine their desires and concerns, helping the family understand their role during this time, etc. I am available if necessary for daily or weekly contact and support. I also provide supportive care for the family after the pet has transitioned and support in understanding that process. If there is a short term transition issue, I provide all that is listed above, but at a much faster level. The fees for these processes are individualized based on the requirements of the family.
Yes, I do. It is possible for me to do hands on healing or distance sessions. I prefer to have pictures of the pets or animals I work with but it is not a must and does not affect the quality of the outcome. I also work with behavioral and emotional issues as well as specialize in those pets who have a terminal diagnosis. I can assist the family through the entire process of transition or the final day or moments. The healing work itself can be used for a multitude of issues, whether they be health related, family issues or learning processes.
The Fur Agreements form the basis for my work with you and your pet. The sacred contracts they make to come here to be with you serve to help you understand their purpose. It is necessary for you to understand this relationship in order to do the work, effect a healing etc. This is not a situation where you say "My pet is barking – make it stop". You must understand why the barking is happening before it can be stopped and the use of The Fur Agreements gives you that beginning point to work from. You will receive a digital copy of The Fur Agreements to help you work with your pet as a gift for scheduling a session.
Yes, when you contact Dr. Tricia for a Power in the Paw Session, you will be sent an email with payment details.
