“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go” ~ Jamie Anderson
My name is Stephanie Rogers, and I am a certified Grief Counselor and Thanatologist (the study of death) with specializations in Child and Adolescent Grief and Pet Loss Recovery. I have been a practicing Grief Counselor, Support Group Facilitator, and End-of-Life Speaker and Educator since 2004.
Since 2017, I have worked almost exclusively in the world of veterinary medicine as a Pet Loss Recovery Specialist, providing one-on-one grief support to those who have lost, either by death, disappearance, or displacement, a non-human family member.
I provide individual, couples, and family/group grief counseling for all types of loss, including Complicated, Traumatic, Cumulative, Collective, Disenfranchised (meaning the loss is not readily acknowledged or supported by society), and Anticipatory Grief.
So, whether you are looking for support following the loss of a life partner after a long term illness, the sudden death by violence of a co-worker, the multiple losses associated with COVID-19, or the death of a beloved family member of any species, I hope you will consider scheduling some time with me.
My intentions is always to provide:
Please know that whatever you’re feeling, you are not alone. I hope you will consider giving me the honor of walking alongside you for a while.

" Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big." Erica Jong
