For many pet lovers, losing a pet is like losing a best friend, a family member, and a trusted companion all at once. When that loss occurs, many are left with grief and other emotions that can be overwhelming, not knowing what to do or say to move forward, or what to say to others in a similar predicament. Deceased Pet Care has partnered with Jennifer Wilmoth, a pet loss counselor, to help you through these emotions and the grieving process.
In her career and education, Jennifer has worked to help families through many trying situations, including the loss of a pet. Jennifer completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina, and then moved to Atlanta, where she completed her Masters of Family Therapy degree from Mercer University School of Medicine. She is now a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (LAMFT) with Grow Counseling in Buckhead and Gwinnett and has spent a number of years providing family counseling services to others, including grief therapy and recovery. She truly understands that times of loss can provide tremendous opportunity for growth. As an avid pet lover and mom to her furry four-legged family member, Molly, Jennifer knows the important role pets play in our daily lives and the bond shared.
