Martha Ann Spruill is a licensed clinical social worker with a special interest in working with people that are grieving because of a pet that is missing, ill, or has died. The unconditional love our pets offer can contribute to the deep pain we feel at their loss. Some people find it helpful to speak with someone other than family members or friends about their loss. Martha Ann talks with clients about typical reactions to grief, what makes pets so special, what impacts the intensity of the loss, and tips for managing grief. She also provides handouts that can be taken home and shared with other family members.Pet Bereavement Services
