Karen M Koehler
End of Life Doula. I was raised by an amazing hospice nurse, have a background as a bereavement support group facilitator and hospice volunteer, and have been a pet parent to a rescued horse, as well as many rescued dogs and cats. With all that love and understanding of transitions, it was natural that I chose a path providing gentle and sacred end-of-life services to animals. I am an End-of-Life Doula for Companion Animals (EOLD-CA) through the University of Vermont, Larner School of Medicine, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) through Somatic Experiencing International (SEI) and Pet Loss Grief Specialist (PLGS) through the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement. I specialize in supporting both large and small animals and their humans through the many aspects of relationship and loss, with a strong emphasis on grief work. My support includes meeting with you and your beloved pet to hear your story and your needs; gentle communication with your animal pre-euthanasia or natural death; supporting family members (herd, pack or human) through the loss; assistance in designing personalized sacred space; and working with you on creating meaningful farewell ceremonies, rituals and memorials. If you choose, I can attend your pet’s euthanasia, gently helping you through the process. And as you grieve, please know that compassionate follow-up grief support is available either in person or remotely.
