I have over 20 years of experience, which has allowed me to develop a uniquely successful approach to resolving behavior problems in parrots. I am known for developing creative solutions for difficult situations. Just as I would never recommend the use of force with a parrot, neither do I force my own solutions onto you, the client. Instead, I listen well and then collaborate with you to develop solutions that create better social balance in the home and create a greater quality of life for all involved.
I am intuitive, perceptive and forthright and, if your thinking is faulty, I will tell you. Only in this way will we develop a relationship based upon trust that will allow us to be successful. I have an unwavering dedication to quality coaching aimed at the goal of bettering your lives with your parrots.
I also have extensive experience training parrots in all types of behaviors, including that of free flight outdoors. Do you want to teach new behaviors, like going into a carrier on cue? Does your parrot only step up part of the time? Does your parrot wander the floor, chewing up your baseboards? I have solutions for you. Can't get your parrot to eat the right foods? I have developed a sure-fire system.
I do my level best to charge fairly for my time. Telephone consultations are charged at the rate of $90.00 per hour. (In-home consults are charged at the same hourly rate plus travel time at $30.00 per hour.) This fee includes not only my time for the consultation, but also includes a set of written recommendations, as well as a period of follow-up at no further charge. I do this because I want you to be successful!
International consultations are handled somewhat differently, depending upon the client's location, the difficulty of placing telephone calls, and exchange rates. If you live in another country and need assistance, please call or write for further information.
I also offers consulting services and client communication resources for veterinary professionals, as well as a mentorship program for other parrot behavior consultants. For more information please refer to the pages on this website which specifically address these services.
It's difficult to offer guarantees of success because I cannot force caregivers to implement all recommendations. Further, problems long in existence will take longer to resolve. However, my personal mission is "Happy Client Every Time." I have a passion for both parrots and people and the bonds they share. You have my guarantee that I will devote exceptional effort to helping you with your parrot, so that the final result is one with which you are satisfied. ~ Pam
