Animal-Assisted therapy & Pet Bereavement
There is a reason why dogs have the nickname man's best friend. The bond between a person and their pet can be just as strong as any human relationship.
For this reason, the loss of a pet is an often undervalued and yet terrible pain which every pet-owner experiences. Feelings of guilt, deep sadness, emptiness, anger, and hopelessness can be become difficult to navigate after our loved one's passing.
This bond can also be used within therapy to help you achieve the growth you are looking for. I have specialized training to implement therapeutic practices between you and your pet for lasting growth. *Animals must be approved to join therapy.*
