My clients come to me for a variety of reasons…. they may want more information about their furred or feathered companions, or their pets may not be feeling well or have behavior challenges, or just to check in and see if they’re happy with a move, different food or a new family member.
I have worked with animal rescues for the past twenty years and believe in their mission. My family and I care for several horses, chickens, parrots, cats and dogs, all rescues, and many not adoptable. While our household may be somewhat noisy at times, we believe the love and understanding our companions share with us, is what makes our house a home.

Aura Photo Readings:
Kimberly Honnell became passionate about aura photography after having her own aura photographed for the first time; she read all about how the Coggins Auracam 3000 worked, and it wasn’t long before she acquired a camera of her own. Early on, she saw the potential the camera had to help people by giving them an accurate glimpse of where they stood mentally, emotionally, and spiritually; and how best to move forward in their own lives. She started out by photographing the auras of friends and loved ones, then began offering her services publicly in early 2014. Now, she can be found in metaphysical shops/bookstores, psychic fairs, and private parties, sharing the gift of aura photography with those in the central Florida area.
