Gardiner Animal Hospital offers grief counseling for our clients who are experiencing grief due to the loss of their pet.
Although everyone experiences the stages of grief, grieving is always a very personal process. Some people take longer than others to come to terms with denial, anger, guilt, and depression, and each loss is different. If you understand that these are normal reactions, you will be better prepared to cope with your feelings and to help others face theirs. Family and friends should be reassured that sorrow and grief are normal and natural responses to death. Our Grief Counselor Matt Maher is a licensed LMHC. He is experienced in grief counseling and will help you at this difficult time. Hours are by appointment only. He can be reached directly at 845-416-1520.
Gardiner Animal Hospital is the only practice locally with an on staff grief counselor. Dealing with pet loss is hard our pets are our family. Once monthly we offer group counseling sessions.
