The loss of a pet is a devastating time. Our pets play many roles in our lives including children, best friends, family members and soul-mates. It's important to know that you are not alone and that it is possible to heal from such a loss. Come and be supported by others who have recently lost a beloved pet or whose pets are seriously ill or aging.

The group is led by Ellie Freedman, LMFT, a Certified Pet Loss and Bereavement Counselor, who knows first-hand the depth of grief experienced with this loss. She will facilitate the group by allowing those grieving to share their feelings in a safe environment and help facilitate the healing process by offering suggestions on how to get through this most difficult and trying time. Anyone who is grieving the loss of a pet or the expected loss of a pet is welcome to join the group.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
