"It was only a dog." and "You can always get another one."
The death of a beloved pet can be as devastating as any loss we ever face, yet many pet owners are left to grieve alone…
You don’t have to be alone in this… I offer you compassionate and safe place to share your sadness, find ways to honor your pet, to sort out the emotional rollercoaster of feelings, to reflect on what you need and want for your life now…
For many of us, pets have become family members. When a dear pet’s life ends, more dies than just a cherished friend and companion. When we face the loss of a pet we may experience a range of grief reactions. This is both natural and necessary. I want be there with you on your journey through this grief and bereavement.
In addition, there is something near unique about pet bereavement - euthanasia. Euthanasia is one of the most difficult decisions anyone can ever make for a pet who is a beloved companion. Although the decision is demanded by humanitarian obligation, it is always traumatic for the person who must finally make it. If you experience this and wants some support- call me today…
