“The Pet Loss and Grief Companioning courses are still one of the best CE experiences I have ever had. Coleen is engaging and makes serious topics bearable and enlightening. I still use many of the “words and phrases” I learned during my course on a daily basis as I help coach families through their pet’s end of life experience. Coleen is a gem and her course is priceless. It is a must attend for anyone helping families cope with the loss of a beloved pet.”
