**UPDATE** The first Saturday of the month free Pet Loss Support Group, held at the CSU James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital, will still be held, just not in person. I have reserved a private conference line for Saturday’s group from 10-11:30 a.m.. See below for information on how to join the group. Please call 1-425-436-6350 and enter Access code # 880072

Understanding that these are stressful and uncertain times, grief is not only impacted by COVID-19, it is heightened. I am honored to help you with the loss of your dear family pet in the following ways:
    • ​All free pet loss support groups will be facilitated remotely at the regularly scheduled times, using the number listed above, until further notice.
    • Discounted phone therapy sessions.
    • Fifteen minute "wellness checks".

Please email or call me for more information.
