Pet loss & Bereavement Counseling

Pets are real friends. Their loss causes real grief. It may come as a surprise that you feel so deeply about your pet. You may have been aware, but not mindful, of the many wonderful gifts your pet brought to your life.

One important difference between pet loss and human loss is that pet loss is often not appreciated. Friends and family may ask ?What?s the big deal? It?s just a pet!? There is also the assumption by many that pet loss should not hurt as much as human loss, because humans are supposedly more important than pets.

Creating a non-judgmental place where you can express your deepest feelings.
  • Helping you cope with and work through the difficult and, at times, intense feelings of shock, anger, guilt, sadness, and depression that often come when beloved pets become ill and/or die.
  • Working with you around any issues of unresolved grief from your past that may surface when your pet dies.
  • Helping guide you through to the other side of your loss, where you will once again be able to think of your companion and the special relationship you shared with contentment and joy.
