Pet Bereavement Counselors:
There are literally hundreds of people who are now counseling in pet bereavement, and it is not possible for the APLB to register them all. Some hesitate to be listed in any directory, others are first discovering the benefits of this wonderful service, and many more are still unknown to us. We welcome all new applicants to contact us directly by mail or online at firstname.lastname@example.org. This listing is arranged according to geographical location. We are pleased that every counselor registered here is a member of the APLB.

I have a diverse background in psychotherapy and have worked with adolescents and adults who have experienced various problems in living. My approach is supportive and nurturing. I believe that the healing journey is facilitated primarily thru a safe and trusting relationship with a compassionate therapist. As each relationship is unique, so it is, too, with grief. Grief, however, does bring on expectable reactions, and so part of therapy includes psychoeducation about these stages, and how best to manage and successfully negotiate each stage. The therapeutic task is to travel through the stages, and not remain stuck in any one stage. The goal is to rediscover the joy in one’s life that was experienced via the relationship with the pet.
I am currently in loving relationships withthree pets, and have known the grief of a lost pet. I offer individual, and family therapy, accept most insurance plans and offer a sliding scale.
