Sit Stay Heal

Some angels choose fur instead of wings.


Years of experience in hospice and bringing home a puppy to join the family landed me at the starting point of my journey to becoming a pet loss grief specialist.


Shortly after joining the pet owner community, I began to see that our pets are undoubtedly members of our family. Seeing owners love for their pets, I wondered: "Who's looking out for them?" like our staff looks out for our patients' loved ones.

When a pet is lost, due to death, theft, surrendering or any other reason, we mourn the loss as we would any other family member. Our grief is deep and we may not feel like it is appropriate to feel as we do about our pet loss. I am here to help you navigate through those emotions.

There are many ways that I am able to help people cope with their loss. I offer one-on-one sessions, family/couples sessions, and group work. Check out "Services" for more information and prices.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything.

During these personalized sessions, we will navigate the waters through complicated emotions, reactions, and memories.

Having someone by your side for support can make the process feel less lonely. A spouse, a sibling, or even a close friend, is welcomed to join.

When a child is grieving, they may exhibit unfamiliar behavior. During the session with the child/children, we will discuss feelings, answer questions, and work on resolution.

I will be there with you and your family before, during, and after your pet's last moments.

I will come into your home, church, office, or any other venue. In a group setting, we can talk openly about our losses, experiences, and coping strategies.

Veterinarians, or any pet professional, are at an immensely high risk for compassion fatigue and burn out. I will come to your place of business and conduct a support group for your employees focused on the unique struggles that come with being a pet professional.
