Loss of Animal Companions

“If we do not suffer a loss all the way to the end, it will wait for us. It won’t just dissipate and disappear. Rather, it will fester, and we will experience its sorrow later, in stranger forms.”
― Elizabeth Lesser, Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

As a counsellor who has lived, loved and worked with animals all my life, I continue to study the power of human animal connection. I respect the depth of the love and the impact of loss in all its forms, and specialize in grief support for companion animal loss and palliative care. This grief is often misunderstood or ignored in our culture. Seeking out support when you need it can help you you move forward through your journey.

Support is also available for coping with palliative challenges and veterinary visits, at home or on site. Please consult with your Veterinarian if you wish to integrate Oaklands support to meet your needs. Information packages are available that can help explain these options.
