Kristy Frick, MS CRC LPC
Kristy Frick Counseling
1 Line Street, Suite 3
Hello! My name is Kristy Frick and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Northeast Pennsylvania. I am also a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a Certified Compassionate Bereavement Specialist.
Initially, my work as a Grief Counselor started with humans grieving humans, but has extended to humans grieving their furry, feathered and sometimes creepy companions. This includes, animal rescuers, veterinary techs and others who work closely with animals of all kinds.
My love for animals has been life-long, but it wasn’t until my first pup, Gypsy, died when I was in college and I knew what grieving a pet really felt like and it was truly one of the worst pains I have ever felt. In the past two years, I have had three dogs pass away – all of their deaths so very different and the impact hit me differently each time, but the pain is always deep and leaves a major void in my heart.
If you live or work in Pennsylvania and need support – please connect with me. Although my schedule is limited at the moment, I am always happy to try to figure out a way to support the grieving.
Karen M Koehler, SEP, EOLD-CA
Equine Spirit, LLC
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 through the University of Vermont, Larner School of Medicine, and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) through Somatic Experiencing International (SEI). 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.
