Coping with Pet Loss and Bereavement

Today, our guest on the Mental Health Download Podcast is Tulsan Lindsay Benson M.S., LPC. She has been working as a therapist for over 15 years.  Most of her experience has been helping people with trauma. Her dog, Gus, died at age eight of cancer in 2012 and that experience sparked a desire in her to help others as they deal with pet loss. She completed a training through the Association for Pet-Loss and Bereavement in order to become a certified pet loss and bereavement therapist.
