When you lose someone you love, animal or human, they leave a big hole in your heart and your life.
Grieving the loss of a beloved animal companion is more normal than what people might think.
As humans, we have a full spectrum of emotions and we are within our rights to feel those feelings - especially grief. This can become compounded when other people around us don’t share in our grief process for animals or heal from pet loss, or they find it impossible that a human should be grieving so heavily for another being that doesn’t look like them.
The phrase “It’s just a (dog/cat/horse/bird/fish, etc), you should be over that by now” is something that a bereaved pet owner might hear from the people around them. That phrase is hurtful, dismissive and not helpful at all.
A Heal From Pet Loss Grief Session is a private, one on one, 90 minute counseling session focused entirely on helping you find a way through the grief so you can feel peace and rebalance your life. We can do a lot in 90 minutes, but depending on your depth of grief, one session may not be enough to fully heal.
It's time to begin your healing process.

What do Holli's clients say?
"Holli’s calm presence, confidence and compassion helped me and my animals gain confidence and peace from our sessions. Through our sessions over the phone, Holli helped me realize that my pets are always communicating with me, AND I have the ability to connect with them too! The biggest benefits are: I gained not only the insight into what my animals are thinking, feeling and trying to communicate, but also ideas for how to improve my animals quality of life and I also realized that my own gut instincts about them were correct! I would recommend Holli with a resounding yes! She helped me to help my pets, gave me the confidence and the tools to do so. She was a real source of strength for me in a difficult time." Teresa B.
"Holli is simply amazing. I lost my boy Stallone a few months ago and if it wasn’t for her grief counseling I would not have been able to be where I’m at on this grief journey mourning and celebrating the life of my boy. She let me know that my feelings are valid and OK and help me and my husband work through this grief of losing our boy in a safe and empathetic environment. She also does animal communication and for me being able to communicate with Stallone has brought me such peace of mind. She has honestly been a godsend in my life and I Highly recommend her to anyone experiencing the loss of their beloved family member. She is simply amazing and we are so thankful for her."
