Are You Grieving The Loss Of A Beloved Pet?

Losing your companion, and a part of your family, can be heartwrenching, no matter the circumstances.  You may be experiencing many emotions at once, such as shock, disbelief, anger, sorrow, or guilt.  All of these feelings are a normal part of the grief process.  It is important to take the time to grieve - but it is also important to know that you don't have to do it alone.

Pets at Peace recommends the services of Anne Marie Farage-Smith,  a Licensed Mental Health Counselor from Counseling Connections,  who specializes in grief and loss counseling. 

Her pet loss counseling is conducted in a non-judgemental group environment, where your loss will be acknowledged, and support will be provided.

Topics you will explore together:

  • Understanding the human-animal bond and the impact on your life
  • The nature of grief
  • Sharing your story
  • Honoring your pet's memory
  • Nurturing yourself

New groups form monthly with a minimum of 4 participants.
