Pet Loss Grief Counseling and Coaching

Paws to Celebrate

About  Paws  to Celebrate

Pet loss grief is ruff and its real. Many pet parents find it difficult to publicly mourn beyond the first few days and need a safe, judgment-free, place to just “be” with their grief. We are a special community of like-minded 2-leggers called Paws to Celebrate Pack. Our mission is, “To listen, To love and To support” for however long you need. There are no set timelines in grief, everyone is unique, just as your relationship with your beloved family member.


Why Coaching?

Coaching is a successful form of talk therapy that has helped turn people's lives around after a significant change. This may include a great loss, the death of a loved one, pet or person, job or promotion loss, divorce, and other relationships, to name a few. A coach will work with you to create, execute, and attain your goals while holding you accountable and help see you through to the finish line, one that produces your desired results.

A great help with grief with losing a beloved pet.

"I loved reading this and can't wait to do the exercises and journaling. I purchased in on Kindle and then ordered 3 books, one for me and one for each of my daughters. It is an excellent read for anyone who has lost a loved one - human or animal. Pam Kaplan is a talented writer with a deep understanding of grief and how to deal with it. You will laugh and cry and I would highly recommend it. Be sure to look for the little Unicorn named Annie. She was our dog that we lost last September and I am honored that she is in the book and I know this book will help me with my grief."
