  • TEN SECRETS FOR HEALING
    Although we would rather never have to confront the ordeals of life, painful situations like loss, the death of a loved one, life threatening illness, or danger in the world, sometimes we have no other choice. It is my experience in assisting people to overcome life’s adversities that we each need as many tools as possible for dealing with difficult times. Following are ten secrets for facing painful events as best we can.

    1. Hang in - don’t run away: Our natural inclination may be to run from pain ...


  • WILL I EVER GET OVER THIS LOSS?
    Grieving over the loss of a loved one can feel interminable. As the days of sorrow persist, we begin to wonder: Will I ever get over this loss? How long will my grief last? Will my misery ever end? We cannot foresee an end to this painful journey we are on.

    We may wish our discomfort would just disappear. We tire of the complex mix of feelings that grief entails -- sadness, regret, guilt, anger, disappointment, and longing. We hate being so uncomfortable, so much of the time. We may feel imprisoned by our feelings ...


  • THE CHALLENGE OF HEALTH ISSUES WITH OUR PETS
    Our pets are like family, our loving and loyal companions, and we feel so responsible for their care. Because our pets trust us completely, knowing how to best care for them may sometimes feel overwhelming. We want to do the right thing, but we don’t always know what that is.

    I am the person to talk with about your pet’s health and welfare concerns. As a grief therapist and pet lover who has had to confront difficult health issues with my cat and several dogs, I truly understand. And if this is what you need, I am someone who will help you...



  • MY EXPERIENCE OF PET LOSS
    Noodles was my female black lab mix, whom I often called “The Divine Miss N.” She was a remarkably loving, responsive, sensitive dog who served as my co-therapist for many years. She was like my child and a constant companion.

    In the weeks before she died I spoke to her often about who she was to me, and how much I loved her and appreciated having her for nearly fourteen years. I told her she was the love of my life. One day I said it was my privilege to have known her. She had made such a difference in her lovingnes ...


  • TALK ABOUT DEATH WITH THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE
    We are such a death denying society that it seems impossible to talk about our own death. A wise Chaplain noted that most of us think we have at least five more years to live, no matter how old we are. I believe death should be an open topic among family and friends, that the freedom to speak of this subject makes it easier to bear, not more difficult. I have a strong bias that even the most difficult of conversations should be attempted. We need to share in the truth...
