Pet Grief Group

counseling for pet grief in HinsdaleLast week I visited a pet grief group in the area, at the Chicago Veterinary Association, at 100 Tower Drive, Burr Ridge.  The meeting is monthly, and is run by a psychologist (Dr. Linda Harper, PhD) and a veterinarian.
 
In working through grief, it is important for you to be able to express your feelings freely, without being corrected or judged by others.  So often, the people who love you--just want you to feel better, and that's why they try to talk you out of your feelings for your deceased animal companion, with well-meaning comments such as "You can just get another one," and "It was just an animal, you know,"--words that hurt far more than they help.
