While grief is a normal emotion associated with the inevitable losses in our lives, intractable, unchanging and long lasting grief that interferes with day to day well-being and your relationships with family, friends and co-workers is not normal. Even after being a veterinarian for many years I found myself in this place as I continued to struggle with the death of one of my pets over 20 years after she passed away. In my journey for resolution I learned about the Grief Recovery Method for Pet Loss and eventually became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist myself credentialed through the Grief Recovery Institute. In my pet hospice practice I encounter pet owners that experience all types and levels of grief on the death or impending death of their animal companions. Even those who are inconsolable initially are absolutely normal. Sadly, many individuals also find that family and friends don’t understand their level of their grief. This is also, unfortunately normal.
As a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist I believe the Grief Recovery Method for Pet Loss can help get you back on the path to moving past your grief and getting back to emotional wholeness. I will be with you on this journey to help your heart deal with the absence of your cherished companion.
Many of the questions I receive about grief and the emotional side of pet loss are addressed in my blog. Please feel to review the information there and if you have any questions send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
