Animal Communication, Psychic and Medium Reading FAQ’s

Do I need to do anything special for my reading?
The best way to receive a reading is to be in calm and relaxed environment. Many clients find prayer, deep breathing or meditation can be helpful to do prior to our time together.

If you schedule a session, sitting in a quiet, peaceful place, such as a private room where there will be no interruptions is also best.

Distractions such as sitting in or driving a car, being at work or knowing you have to rush off for an appointment afterwards can negatively affect your experience.

Cate highly recommends taking notes during your session so you can go back and reflect upon your experience. If she tells you to write something down, please write it down exactly the way she tells you please.

What is a session like with you?
Every reading is unique. No matter which reading service you choose, Cate will share validations and information that provides healing or guidance for your questions depending on the type of reading you choose.

  • Psychic or Animal Communication Readings – Cate will provide validations for the past or present and then share the guidance she receives for your questions regarding you or for your living pet. She will address as many questions as time permits. 
    These readings can include predictions for the future, but Cate believes in free will, which can provide a different outcome for you.
  • Medium Readings (Human or Animal) – Cate will bring through validations and messages from your loved ones in spirit.
    Cate recommends of letting go of any expectations regarding receiving certain information from those who have passed on. She believes in the healing power and deep sense of connection with a medium reading when we are TRULY open to the experience of receiving whatever happens.
    Cate allows Spirit to share what they want, not necessarily what you want answered! 

Cate has learned to trust the information she receives from Spirit and will share everything with you, whether it makes sense or not.

Some information may not make sense during the reading and that is OK!

Almost all clients report back that the information that they did not understand during their reading either came true or they remember the information later.

It is up to you how to interpret or use the information that has been communicated, but the items that do not make sense to you are those that Cate most highly recommends you write down!

How do you receive information during a session?
Cate is a highly sensitive and empathic person by nature which allows her to tune into the energy within the spiritual realm. She will often feel the emotional and physical sensations of spirit.
She also receives information in the following ways:

  • Clairvoyance (psychic seeing)
  • Clairaudience (psychic hearing)
  • Claircognizant (psychic knowing)
  • Clairsentient (psychic feeling/touching)
  • Remote Viewing

Since Cate receives validations and messages through these various ways, she often feels like she’s putting a puzzle together with all of the various ways the information comes through. Each session is different!

Which loved one(s) will show up and will
There is no guarantee that a specific person(s) or animal(s) will show up during your reading. In addition, there are times that those who show up aren’t whom we expected, but our loved ones from beyond have a wonderful way of sharing the validations and messages you need, not necessarily what you want to hear.

Will you call me if I choose a reading by phone?
Yes, Cate will call you from a private line at our scheduled time if you are within the United States.

She recommends using a landline during the reading, especially during inclement weather.

Phone Readings:
Cate will call you promptly at the time of your scheduled reading if you reside within the United States.

If you live outside of the United States, please use the Zoom option.

Please be sure to be in a quiet and calm place with no distractions for your phone reading, such as a private room. It is also best to not have to rush off somewhere right after your appointment time.

Please be prompt for your appointment. You may forfeit some of your time if you are late, so I can honor appointments scheduled after yours.

Note: Cate does not guarantee specific loved ones (whether human or animal) in spirit will come through during your reading.

Cate does not record readings, however clients can record their readings.

Rescheduling and Cancellations:
You have up until 48 hours prior to your appointment time to either reschedule or cancel your reading. If you fail to reschedule or cancel within this time frame, there will be no refund and the regular scheduling procedures will apply. If you fail to show for your appointment, there will be no refund and regular scheduling procedures will apply.

What if I have follow-up questions after my reading?
Cate does not usually remember her readings and out of privacy concerns does not retain any information about your reading. For these reasons, Cate does not provide answers for follow up questions. 

Scheduling another session could help, but she highly recommends and prefers allowing some time to pass between readings.

What if I start feeling uncomfortable during our session?
Cate feels passionate about the intuitive work she does and the healing and a sense of peace she sees it brings to her clients. There are occasions however, where what we hear can be surprising and may bring several different emotions up to the surface. This is normal!

Cate’s intent is to provide an environment where you feel safe so you can remain open to receiving the information that was meant for you. If at anytime you start feeling too uncomfortable, please let her know.

Which is more accurate, an in-person, a phone reading or video conference reading?
There is no difference between any type of these readings. The information is received in the same way and does not affect the level of accuracy in any way.

In fact, many clients prefer a phone or video conference reading as it offers them a level of privacy and quiet they might not otherwise get.

Most of the testimonials listed on this website were readings conducted over the phone.

Animal Communication FAQ’s

Why do you charge for a Lost Pet? What is the reading like?
Losing a pet can be very traumatic and frightening. 
Cate charges the 60 minute fee because this is a very different type of reading. While Cate does not guarantee she will find your pet, she does provide a lot of information that can help you narrow down your search. This information is addition “data” to help you find for your pet.

The initial reading will last anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Sometimes, a lost pet may show some new information after the initial reading. IF this happens, Cate will share this new information with you, usually by email. So keep checking your SPAM or Promo folders. It may or may not make sense, but she will share everything your pet does. With most cases, this information has made sense. Frequently Asked Questions Frequently Asked Questions Frequently Asked Questions
The reading will start by Cate validating that she has connected with your pet. The process includes using technology to help aid you in finding your pet and will provide photos via email if possible.
Downloading Google Earth can be helpful for this service.

Can I have more than one pet “read” during a session?
Yes, but for the best results, you may want to determine how much or what type of information you need from your pet family first. For example, if you need some detailed information for each animal, then individual sessions for each pet might be more appropriate. 

If you do choose one session with multiple pets, then plan on scheduling a longer session to allow enough time for each pet to share messages. 

Please note: Cate allows 1 pet for 15 minute readings,  2 animals for 30 minute readings and 3 pets for 60 minute readings.
