“Pet Parents adopt knowing they will inevitably suffer the loss of their dear companion; what a truly selfless act of love indeed.”
—Elissa C. Levine
If you are a Pet Parent, losing your beloved companion can produce an effect far beyond sadness. It often meets the clinical definition of trauma, a deeply distressing or disturbing experience that can impact other areas of your life. Bereavement is the time we spend adjusting to loss. There is no standard time limit and there is no right or wrong way to feel during the bereavement period. Everyone must learn to cope in their own way. Grief, though normal, can manifest in a huge range of unexpected ways. Sometimes, grief can turn into something more serious, like depression.
She combines her clinical expertise, training and professional experience with the understanding, empathy, and compassion of being a lifetime Pet Parent.
