Meet Renee

Renee Takacs Intuitive Consultant sitting on porchHello, and thank you for your interest in learning more about who I am and what I do. I am an Intuitive Consultant and an Animal Communicator who blends intuitive insights and telepathic skills with distance energy work, to inspire and support your personal growth, and the well being of your animal friends. Since childhood I have exhibited intuitive abilities and had awareness of loved ones in spirit. One of my earliest experiences occurred in the middle of the night when I was seven years old. I witnessed a woman appear to me in spirit form. The next day my mom showed me the family photo album, and I immediately recognized the woman. The woman was my Grandma Irene, who had died many years before I was born. Given my early experiences I had a compelling desire to understand life beyond the five senses. To my surprise, in 1996 I had my first experience communicating telepathically with a dog. I was leaving a client’s home, after conducting Intuitive Consultations, when the hostess chuckled and said, “Next time you’ll have to read for our dog!  It has issues!” Immediately trusting an intuitive prompting, I plopped onto the floor and telepathically listened to the dog explain where it liked to sleep and learned that it was missing its bacon treat. When I shared the dog’s thoughts with the hostess, the hostess’s boyfriend, a skeptic, dropped his jaw and said, “We’ve had that bacon treat on our grocery list for six weeks now, and everyone keeps forgetting to pick it up!” Word of mouth spread rapidly. Since that amazing moment, I continue to honor the spiritual connection we all share and am grateful to serve as a voice for the animals.
