Pet Loss Workshop

pet loss counseling

Perhaps you feel silly.

Or shamed.

Or bizarre. Or weak.

Or maybe you just hurt.

Really, really bad.

Truth be told, grieving a pet is serious stuff.

The research on pet loss

In fact, research finds that pet loss can be even more intense than human death-grief.

Research also finds that pet loss is largely misunderstood and, worse yet, devalued...

And is actually relegated to the realm of disenfranchised grief.

Meaning, society, as a whole, often dismisses pet loss as something less than legitimate grief.

Yet, study…after study…after study…after study

Finds that unresolved pet loss can cause many issues, like:

  • Fatigue, insomnia, unhealthy weight loss, joint pain
  • Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy (“broken heart syndrome”)
  • Long-term anxiety, depression, and even anger issues
  • Neuroticism
  • Complicated grief
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)


I understand your pet loss pain

I know for me, personally, pet loss is always a devastating endeavor.

I’ve lost a father. I’ve lost a lover. I’ve lost a mentor. 

I’ve lost a close friend.

I’ve lost several cousins, all my grandparents, half a dozen aunts, and five uncles.

I’ve lost games. I’ve lost competitions. I’ve lost sporting titles.

I’ve lost money…heirlooms…keepsakes…

Hell, I’ve even lost my dignity on occasion.

Yet nothing has ever hurt like the loss of my beloved pups…

“Piggy” and Moose.


In fact, years and years ago—when I didn’t yet know what I now know as a grief therapist and narrative psychologist—I, literally, broke down from exhaustion following one of these losses.

And it was a looong road back to optimal health.


My salvation

However, after meeting a unique adviser & healer…

Someone I’m convinced Mother Universe placed before me not just to help me heal but to also propel me toward my life purpose…

I eventually found my way.

And in the process, I discovered certain truths about grief—

Truths that run contrary to popular notions and traditional counseling.

Startling truths.

Confounding truths.

Powerful truths.

Along with a warm and beautiful approach to recovery that included a variety of enchanting tactics…

Which rendered me, once again, whole and inspired.

With these truths and tactics in-hand…

I now help people just like you…

Heal and “complete” their pet loss.

“Completing” Your Grief

What’s your investment?

So, if you were to get all this “therapy” at my hourly rate ($250), it would cost you no less than $2250.

It would also take you nine weeks to complete all these “healing sequences,” as I call them.

But you don’t have to make that type of investment here.

With time.

Or money.

Instead, it’ll take you just three days…

And $697.

With a money-back guarantee.

In fact, you can even lower that price…
