Service Animal

Service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

an anxiety disorder characterized by recurrent obsessions or compulsions or both that cause significant distress, are time-consuming or interfere with normal daily functioning, and are recognized by the individual affected as excessive or unreasonable

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Dyscalculia

Where to find your Gift Certificate Code

Marisa Marinos Gift Certificate Sample

Hybrid Session

A Hybrid session is a combination of Spiritual Life Coaching and Mediumship. We connect with your “Spirit Council”, both your loved ones as well as your Spirit Guides. Often they assist with difficult questions or help you make choices when you encounter a speedbump, as well as validate life choices. They help us navigate what needs to be paid attention to or what guidance they see that’s needed to help you live your best life as well as cheer you on. 

* If you select to have Hybrid Session, during “checkout” you may add 1 guest to attend with you either in person or on FaceTime (Apple devices only) for an additional $150. This option is not available for phone sessions.

Mediumship Reading

This choice is you wanting to connect with your loved ones that have passed and hear what they are doing, experiencing and seeing in the afterlife. I only channel souls who have crossed over to God’s white light. 

This type of session often helps with answers and closure for many clients. I use my gift to bridge between our world and the spirit world. I DO NOT EVER CHANNEL DARK ENERGY. I am a fourth generation intuitive guide. It is a spiritual experience that seeks to validate, console, heal and offer “Love from Above.”

* If you select to have a Mediumship session, during “checkout” you may add 1 guest to attend with you either in person or on FaceTime (Apple devices only) for an additional $150. This option is not available for phone sessions.
