I have been the owner and operator of The Feed Bin in Rochester, WA since 2006. I have always loved animals, but my passion for animal nutrition and holistic healing modalities began after assuming ownership of the store. I have developed a deep and profound enjoyment in helping my customers with their animals and educating them about the different options available.
Veterinarians became increasingly overwhelmed with the influx in pet ownership during COVID. This has made it even more challenging to get routine and emergency vet care. I have experienced this first hand when concerned customers come into my store desperate for help. This, combined with the new government regulations on over the counter antibiotics, inspired me to begin researching alternatives. Which is where I discovered the benefits of aromatherapy using essentials oils, and light therapy.
I am currently enrolled in Dr. Roark's intensive Animal Aromatherapy Specialist course and The Photonic Pet Laser Therapy Course to become a Certified Pet Light Therapist (CPLT). I am beyond excited to share what I'm learning with you!
Please note: I am not a veterinarian and cannot diagnose medical conditions or prescribe medications. The holistic modalities I offer are regarded as supportive and not a substitute for veterinary care. I would be honored to join your pets' wellness team and provide supplemental, integrative services to improve their health, happiness and quality of life.
Pet Light Therapist
We are passionate about pet care and nutrition and want to provide resources and information so you can help your pets live their best life. We specialize in animal aromatherapy, light therapy and nutritional counseling. We also advocate for many other natural and holistic modalities.
Animal aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of natural essential oils to restore or maintain the well-being of your animal. It involves the combination of carefully diluted oils that can be administered through diffusion, topically or orally to treat specific conditions or ailments.
Light therapy is a simple, noninvasive treatment for pets that is widely used to reduce pain and inflammation, improve healing after injuries and surgeries and has been proven to be effective for a number of chronic conditions.
The purpose of a nutrition consultation is to help determine the best feeding options for your animal(s). This can be beneficial for animals suffering from food sensitivities, weight gain or loss, skin conditions, or other issues related to their diet and environment.
