Joy Smith is an International Animal Communicator and Animal Reiki Master Healer who believes animals are sentient beings that deserve to have a voice and be heard. So many animals suffer from anxiety because they simply don’t understand what’s happening around them, just like humans they need to be assured and told what is happening. Joy is passionate about teaching pet parents and foster parents how to create loving relationships and bring harmony to the home through empowered communication either telepathically or by using simple one way communication techniques.
She was first introduced to Reiki when she was going through a depressive state in 2004. After experiencing the healing power of Reiki she got her Reiki attunements and started practicing on animals and people right away.
Joy’s mentor saw that Joy had a gift with animals and kept on suggesting (multiple times) that she work with animals. Joy was at first very skeptic, but when she took her first Telepathic Animal Communication class, this gift inside of her opened up and she really saw the power and benefit of it. She’s so glad she did!
Joy had a life altering year when she lost both her parents to health complications and her beloved dog Nikita who passed from cancer. She knew then that it was time to follow her soul’s passion. Joy left her 30 year career in Human Resources in 2014 and started working with animals full time.
To date she has helped hundreds of animals be heard, release anxiety, become more confident, transforming the relationship from stress to understanding between the pet and pet parents. Joy loves volunteering and is often found at the Humane Society helping the animals with emotional and physical healing so they can be adopted out more quickly.
