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 am a licensed Clinical Social Worker, professionally trained at the nationally renowned University of Michigan School of Social Work, with over 20 years of experience in providing Mental Health services. I specialize in Grief and Loss issues and am certified by the APLB as a Pet Loss Counselor.
I approach pet bereavement therapy with the same clinical focus as any other acute grief reaction and utilize proven interventions in supportive counseling sessions with the treatment goals of emotional ventilation and resolution. Through this process, the survivors are empowered to fully integrate the loss into their lives and move forward in a meaningful manner.
