|Gaithersburg: Joan Pedersen. Is the emotional pain you're experiencing from your pet's death overwhelming? Let me help. With a background in spirituality and clinical social work from the University of Michigan, I provide a holistic approach to grief counseling. I know how much a part of the family animals become and how difficult their death can prove. I have helped many individuals and families struggle with anticipatory grief during a pet's illness, and to mourn their loss by focusing on letting go, saying good-bye, and rituals of remembrance. My style is interactive, compassionate and straightforward. Center for Renewal, 933-D Russell Ave., Gaithersburg, MD 20879, 301.527.1382, firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.joanpedersen.com.
