My work is inspired by my lifetime love of animals as well as the loss of a beloved dog in 2008. My clinical training in attachment complements the hard earned lessons I have taken with the love and passing of each animal friend in my life. I know the value of having someone to talk with about worries and grief, and stress related to our pets. As an experienced therapist, I am skilled at helping people identify their particular needs as they cope and thrive before, during and after the passing of a pet.
