How did you hone your craft?

Through my continuous study and speaking to hundreds of grieving pet parents, I have developed a well received program for working with grieving pet parents.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

When faced with the loss of a pet, it is important to remember that tears are a sign of love. The greater the love, the greater the grief. Feeling sad in normal and expected but with work, you can learn to accept and live your life without your pet.

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

I am here to help.
