Licensed Clinical Social Worker - Pet loss Specialist

Saying goodbye to our loving pets can be a tough and emotional journey. Unfortunately, there are many people who do not understand why the loss of a four legged companion can trigger such intense emotions. Many pet owners find that the loss of a pet is as challenging as the loss of a family member.


I'm not only a pet mom but a therapist as well. Please take the time to explore my site and learn why I can and will provide you with the sound advice, counseling and personal guidance you need. Grief is a process with no time frame and no rules. Click on my blog to learn more about my personal experiences with pet loss.


I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you're here.

"The Loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind." 


As an avid animal lover and someone who has lost several beloved pets, I decided to dedicate my practice to pet loss so nobody will have to suffer the grief of a lost loved one alone. Many people don't understand pet loss and the incredible impact this can have on us. They are more than just pets - they are our best friends, our family and our source of unconditional love and acceptance.


Most people are uneducated when it comes to death and loss and can become easily overwhelmed by the tremendous roller coaster of emotions that comes with the loss of a pet. Those that try to support us typically, and unintentionally, end up invalidating our feelings and minimizing the role our pet played in our life. If you are dealing with a pending pet loss or the death of a pet and would like to share your story in a judgement free and supportive environment, please reach out.

As a trained therapist, a dog mom and someone who has lost several pets, my most recent loss was a 16 year old chihuahua on 8/19/22, I truly understand your heart break and pain. You don't have to walk this path alone. Through the use of my own life experiences and training, I can help you transform your pain and struggle into hope and growth.
