is a very special opportunity allowing individuals dealing with the loss of a pet to meet with others. In a warm and compassionate atmosphere, people share memories, laughs and joys of life with their pets.Individual, Couple, and Family Counseling
is also available. The death or disappearance of a beloved pet affects the entire family and each individual deals with the loss in their own way. Parents may feel lost about how to help their children while dealing with their own emotions. Hospice Support
is also offered to bring compassion to those providing end-of-life care for their pet. As a counselor who understands, I'll encourage and support you in connecting to the truth of your heart throughout this phase.
