Therapy For Pet People

Pet Loss Counselors / Specialists

Virtual

Texas, 77094

Besides being a licensed psychologist, I am an animal lover who personally knows the pain of losing a beloved companion animal. I have been shocked how many therapists do not understand the deep connections that we can have with animals. There is nothing wrong with you if you are missing your fur baby or are worried about losing them. Together we can process the memories you had with them as well as regrets that you may have. In addition, if you are struggling with other concerns such as anxiety, depression, or past trauma we can discuss those issues as well.  To schedule an appointment, go to my website: www.therapyforpetpeople.com or find me on Facebook or Instagram (Therapy For Pet People). I offer a free 15 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit to work together. I provide online therapy  in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, District Of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin

Grieving the loss of a pet: You’re not alone

When you lose a beloved companion animal your whole world can change. Grief is unique and isn’t reserved for the loss of humans.  There is a Human-Animal bond that is important to acknowledge.

 

Feeling emotionally vulnerable is natural when you lose a pet. You need to process overwhelming feelings.  One first step is to know you are not alone.

 

I am here to help you through this difficult journey.

Please reach to speak with me, as a Certified Pet Loss Grief Specialist with the Associataion for Pet Loss and Bereavement; talking will help ease your pain. 

 

Losing your companion animal can be an extremely difficult and painful experience. Knowing how to support yourself during an emotional time can help you feel more at ease. 

 

With the right insight and knowledge, I can help you understand and care for yourself in the best way possible.My approach acknowledges your loss and my 15yrs of combined clinical and community, private practice experiences will help you navigate this difficult time of mourning.

 

Contact me for a free 15 minute consult to begin your journey of healing with the loss of your pet.

For many pet owners, our pets are much more than companions, they are family. If your loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, or you are experiencing challenges coping with the loss of them, pet loss and bereavement counselling could be for you.

On your one-on-one session, your therapist can help you cope with the emotional burden of losing a pet. Here are some examples of the things we might explore in these sessions:

  • Talk and discuss about your pet loss

  • Learn specific mindfulness coping strategies for the grief you are experiencing 

  • Find meaning and purpose about the bond you shared with your pet

  • Learn about the resources available to you outside of therapy in the pet community

Services are available to Canadian Residents online in BC, SK, AB, ON, and MB. In-person sessions available, please inquire for further more information.

These visits are where we delve into how I can help you best. Usually its simply having someone listen-really listen to what you miss about your beloved pet or perhaps help you process the helplessness and anger. I have a lot of life experience with loss since my adult life has been dedicated to rescue, animal welfare and hospice fostering. I also have a unique skill set with natural empathy that led me to pet loss classes, workshops and certfication. 

Pet loss is a very disenfranchised grief and we are working to change that with community and a promise of judgement-free communication. 

Sessions are offered by Zoom, phone call, and email. On our website, we have a Pet Loss Support intake form -any information you want to share helps me prepare on how best to help you. https://bopawsitforward.org/intake-pet-loss-support-form
