More deeply,

More meaningfully,

More joyfully.

Transition can look many different ways. Do you resonate with any one of these questions?

You are wondering what your purpose is?

You are feeling stuck?

Wondering why you are here?

Your inner voice is getting more persistent?

You want to shine your brilliant light but are afraid?

You are grieving the loss of an animal friend?

It seems the small transitions we are able to move through without too much trouble, while the bigger transitional periods can leave us feeling alone and questioning everything we thought we knew.

Finding the gifts in transitional times can open you to unexpected blessings that can be quite transformational, and lead you back home to yourself and what you already know within your heart to be true and that…

joy is what you are here to experience and I want to assure you that you are never truly alone.

My mission here at Joyful Paws is to be an inspiring Intuitive Guide, gently holding space for women searching for deeper meaning for their lives and encouraging them to trust in their intuition. I do this by joyfully serving as a thoughtful, honest and reflective mirror, granting you permission to pause, listen, and capture that beautiful light within you, encouraging you to let it shine brightly!

It’s the wise council of animals, nature’s healing energies, and the wisdom of Oracles and symbolism, which all speak to the language of the soul, that guide me to pause often, listen deeply and capture what matters most. This has served  beautifully as countless moments of welcome self-reflection and contemplation, empowering me to trust in my intuition and lead a life that is filled with meaning, joy, and love.

It’s this powerful guidance that my faith resides that I rely on to support me in encouraging you to step fully into who you are meant to be and what Joyful Paws is passionate about sharing with YOU!

The Universe is always blessing us with signs and symbols along our life’s path and it wants you to know…


to take time to pause,

listen to your heart,

and capture your joy.

Nothing happens overnight. Developing a relationship with the unknown takes time. In doing so the seeker is granted the greatest gift of all—clarity. I have come full circle yet again. I must always be willing to journey forward—spiral into the center and then back out again. Then and only then will I be whole, in touch with all that I am.  ~Joan Anderson, The Second Journey
