Pet Loss Counseling and Support Services in Ohio



Jen Kargakos, BA
APLB Certification in Pet Loss Bereavement Counseling
Telephone: (440) 670-2851
Losing a pet can bring so many unexpected emotions and I aim to provide a comfortable and supportive environment for those who are anticipating or have lost a pet to talk about their feelings, emotions as well as the life they shared with their pet(s).  We can also discuss the impact this has had on others in the family or the idea of adopting a new pet. There is no time table on how long we can grieve and I hope to be a catalyst for pet parents to put themselves on the healing trail.

Losing a pet or the thought of losing a pet can be a very painful, confusing and frightening experience.  An important part of your life is gone and you may be unsure about how to cope with your feelings. 
By meeting with others in the Pet Loss Support Group you can begin to answer some of your questions and learn ways to cope with the pain.  The Pet Loss Support Group is available at no charge to anyone who needs it.  You do not need to call before attending and you may come to as few or as many sessions as you wish.

Restore Counseling

Address: 500 W. Wilson Bridge Road, Suite 10, Columbus, OH 43085
Phone:  614-721-8235
The nature of the bond or attachment we form with our pets differs per person, but for many the power of that bond is realized when they mourn the loss of their beloved companion animal. Our feelings of grief can be further intensified by the circumstances surrounding our pet’s loss, as well as the insensitivity of well meaning others who may not understand that bond. The pet loss experience is further complicated as the bereft pet owner experiences isolation, self-doubt and confusion about their emotional reaction. It is my sincere desire to help you through this very difficult time.  NOTE: Sue offers a new creative grief processing group called "Beyond Words."  This group will meet 5 weeks for 2 hour sessions utilizing creative processing (art therapy) to walk through grief.  For more information visit



Jane Miller, LISW, CDBC

Jane Miller is a clinical psychotherapist and licensed independent social worker.  She has helped people with a wide range of psychological issues, but her background, experience and love of animals attest to her understanding of pet loss.  Ms. Miller helps her clients through all phases of the grieving process and the ebb and flow of the mixture of emotions that may arise. These might include sadness, anger, guilt, depression and feeling abandoned.  She has over the years had clients referred to her by veterinarians after the death of their animals and has provided individual therapy, as well as group therapy.
