Online, I will respectfully and confidentially listen to your pet love, loss, and legacy story. When you request, I may be able to provide you additional support references that may be helpful to you, or others that you are helping. I also provide online “pet loss caregiving” consults, classes, and courses to individuals, couples, partners, groups, organizations, and ministries. There is no charge for my pet and animal chaplain consults, it is my tribute to my beloved Pixie’s legacy.

As a Lifecycle Celebrant certified by the Celebrant Foundation & Institute, in Funerals, Memorials, Healing & Transitions, I will meet with you and your family in an unhurried personal collaboration as we work together to create a loving, personal tribute to your pet according to your wishes. As a pet lover myself, I know that nothing can take away the grief we experience from such a loss, but a genuine, well-prepared tribute to your pet eases that pain and helps in beginning the process of your grief.
