I’ve been aware since age 4 that I had extremely heightened senses — far beyond the "norm" — with a special gift for knowing what animals were thinking and feeling, and that they could easily understand me too. It has always been completely natural for me to communicate back and forth with them this way, on a mind-to-mind level. It is now thought that people like me (HSPs, or Highly Sensitive Persons) make up around 20% of the population. HSPs actually differ anatomically in the way their brains take in and process information. Not all HSPs are intuitive, though — it takes some other skills — plus concentrated development and application of the skills — to become what was once referred to as "psychic" (though I personally don't use that term.)
Later on, I discovered that I was also medically empathic. Without even trying, I would suddenly pick up very specific and intense physical (and emotional) messages from strangers while out in public. Frankly, in the beginning, this aspect of my intuitive abilities was a bit unnerving. It was startling and also very hard to realize that I was suddenly soaking up the deep sorrow of the person sitting next to me on public transportation, or that I could tell that a person was sicker than they knew. It took me a while to get comfortable with this part of myself, and to be convinced that it was a good and useful thing. (As an intuitive, it can be a struggle in the beginning to learn how to regulate this influx of information and emotions.)
In the early 1990’s I began to explore my intuitive abilities in a more serious way, and to offer help wherever I could. Early on, there were a few pivotal events that kept consistently pointing me in this direction. I was also getting good results and feedback that my insights were accurate. I experienced synchronous events that continually pushed me to do even more, and I felt a strong sense of destiny. I soon realized the power of this work: that I could bring about solutions that helped pets experience profound changes, and give their humans peace of mind.
After over two decades of doing this work, I now have clients throughout the US and far beyond. I have helped heal pets from various physical and emotional conditions, corrected unwanted behaviors, assisted in animal births, helped dogs who bite, explored "intuitive autopsies”, and supported pets in crossing over to the spirit world. I've also given comfort to their humans throughout the process.
I did not choose this path; I know that it chose me. The success I have communicating with animals doesn't come from me, it flows through me. This is a spiritual calling that enables me to bridge Heaven and Earth, and to make a positive contribution to animals and the people who love them. It's hard to put into words how much joy my work continues to bring me. Let’s connect!
(My Story): About Ali Amato
“I was referred to her by my vet and I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have Ali come onto Winston’s support team!...Just when I was almost out of hope, she brought us back into a hopeful place...Winston and I will be forever grateful to Ali for her gift and for her help in supporting him with his health issues, and literally bringing him back to life in his advanced years.”

PET PORTRAITS AND WILD ANIMAL ARTWORK
As a lifelong artist, it’s only natural that animals would be my favorite subject. I use my intuitive mind to delve into portraying their place in the world; this is another source of joy in my life. My goal is to capture a moment in time, bringing out their inner essence in a colorful and heightened, but naturalistic way. When I'm creating a custom portrait of your beloved pet, their soul comes shining through in a lasting piece of art you'll truly treasure forever.
