FAQ'S (Frequently Asked Questions)
How do I schedule?
** Please note that you do need to make an appointment to schedule a session. Same day appointments are never guaranteed. **
To schedule a phone session, click the "book now" button above. If you don't see an available time that works for you, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 740/605-6553.
For Gahanna or Pataskala ONLY, email CINDWARR@AOL.COM. For all other venues, see the contact person on the "schedule" page.
I can't come in person. Can you still talk to my pets? Yes! Phone sessions are available using a photo of your pet, and are just as accurate as in person ones. Contact Jen for an available time.
How do you talk to animals?- Jen uses a strong intuitive, heart-based connection to communicate with animals of all species. She developed this ability as a child and uses words, pictures, smell, and energy work to receive and communicate information to her clients.
How does it work? Communication is a two way exchange of information and is available for living and pets who have transitioned. Jen offers communication for performance animals, which enhance the human-animal bond and team. End life, hospice, and medical intuition services are also available.
What if someone I live with doesn't believe in what you do? If people feel strongly against Communication or Reiki, they may block the flow of information during a session. It takes a lot of time to try to explain this type of work, which cuts into your session time. Therefore, please do not bring them along with you.
Can you convince someone who is skeptical? What if I'm skeptical? Skepticism is healthy, but it's not Jen's interest to try to convince people that communication works. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and beliefs, and a closed mind can't always be opened. If you're skeptical, ask people who have had a session with Jen about their experience. Also, refer to the testimonials on the Animal Communication page.
Can you talk to animals that have passed away? Absolutely! Refer to the blog post on this very subject.
Will you come to my house for a session? In home sessions are available in some cases. You must have been referred by an existing client, and there is an additional fee. Contact Jen for a quote.
Can I bring multiple pets in for my session time? In most cases, yes. Check with Jen for details.
Are sessions confidential? Absolutely. Any client that Jen has worked with will reiterate this. Jen has worked with many celebrities, veterinarians, canine performance teams (including world-team dogs), and other high profile clients. Not only are sessions confidential, but also the identity of these clients is as well.
Do clients tip you? Yes- tips are welcome and accepted with gratitude.

"Last fall I had an appt with you with my 2 dogs. I wanted to let you know what a breakthrough that was for H. After the appointment I tried to figure out
different ways to treat H. Since you told me H. thought she was holding me back, I tried to work her differently. She has been consistently getting better in her work and is overall more relaxed. At the end of the year she placed fifth in a class of 30 at a trial. This was by far the best she has ever done." D, Ohio
"Sunnie is still alive! I am in communication with her. She is very cold and scared. She has not been caught and has been out in the weather since she got
lose. I see her in a open field which has a lot of trees, hiding in the snow, there is lots of snow, she is next to a busy road. You gotta leave now!!!!!!" I
ask how will I find her? She said to “follow your gut, just go.” I want to thank AC who got me to Jen Ortman, who sent me to the park next to the busy road with all the snow where she was hiding....." From "How Sunnie was found" D, Michigan
"Can't say enough about such a positive impact on us. I'm so appreciative you recognize - and are willing to do - the very important job of aiding hospice/end of life progression. We humans need professionals with gifts and talents like you have to help us know and do the right thing for our companions!" M, Ohio
"Thank you very much for connecting me with my dogs this afternoon. You have such a calming presence. Thank you for your patience with me as I fumbled for my thoughts. The messages you gave me brought me tremendous comfort and valuable information. I will reread and ponder and hold them close to my heart." MB, Illinois
