And accept this invitation to enroll in this pet loss course designed to support you on this difficult journey. We recognize that your family needs all the information, compassion and support you can find. Your family deserves to feel comforted, understood and acknowledged as a family in grief, and reassurance that you are normal and healthy in loving your faithful animal friend so deeply.

quotes My work with bereaved animal lovers combines my background in counseling with my respect for the bond people have with their animals, and my own experiences of healing from the loss of both human and animal loved ones.
~ Marty Tousley, Grief Counselor quotes
You will be served well by this pet loss course if your family is...
  • Experiencing grief and despair over the loss or the death of a beloved pet.
  • Surprised and even overwhelmed at the depth of your family's grief at the loss of your pet.
  • Feeling isolated from others because they tell you "it's just a pet" and they don't understand how you or your children feel.
  • Feeling guilty because the grief you feel at the thought of losing your family pet matches or even exceeds the sorrow you felt when one of your close friends or relatives died.
  • Wanting to better understand, help and support a child or family member who is mourning the loss of a pet.
