Grief support for pet loss


This pet grief support group for adults offers a place to connect to others who empathize with the death of your beloved animal companion. Connect, too, with a therapist who validates your feelings and needs. By offering ways to guide the exploration of your grief, I will help you to find your unique way to live with what you can't change, and to create a new way forward. I recommend attending a minimum of 8 sessions, and invite you to stay for as long as you need.

Group Therapist

Let therapy come to your couch! Cara Donahue offers convenient online sessions to women in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts & Maine. She specializes in helping high-achieving, HSP women navigating anxiety, grief and unacknowledged loss to finally put themselves first. Cara serves as her clients' mentor, helping them to safely express how they actually feel, to connect to their inner compass, explore and create the life that best serves them.

Drawing from several therapy approaches, clients learn ways to bring relief to their brain and body, practice self-inquiry without self-judgment, and release deeply held, limiting beliefs. Cara also practices the Emotional Freedom Technique, alternately known as tapping: a therapy that leverages the body’s natural pressure points to free trapped subconscious beliefs and emotions. Clients benefit from Cara’s experience helping many through intense grief and stress. They leave therapy sessions feeling far more connected, cared for and confident in themselves.

Cara believes the body holds onto emotional and physical responses from trauma and loss. With Cara, clients peak underneath their symptoms to understand what's at their root, in order to address and release the suffering held there. She is a non-judgmental therapist who approaches mental health with curiosity, rather than labels. She teaches clients how to engage their thoughts and feelings without judgment and instead exist alongside them. She guides clients to engage with all of their parts, to foster self-acceptance, -compassion and -trust. Cara commits to giving her clients the felt sense of being understood and accepted. They leave therapy better equipped, confident and connected.
