Natasha Tutt - MSW, RSW
Specializing in pet loss, veterinary wellness, and the animal-human bond
As an avid animal lover and pet parent, I understand the deep impact that animals have on our lives and the connections we make with these special beings. Our pets are there for us through life's celebrations, difficulties, and daily routines. Unfortunately, there is often little acknowledgement of the important role that pets play in our lives. Difficulties may also arise through the invalidation of our role as caregivers and our grief when our pets leave us. This is why I've created this space.
As an animal caregiver (pet parent, veterinary professional, rescue organizer or otherwise), we experience several challenges and emotions connected to our animals' health and wellness. While many therapists are well equipped to support those grieving the loss of a pet or other challenges related to animal caregiving, you may choose to face these challenges in a space that is specifically dedicated to pet loss and veterinary wellness.
After 10+ years in the human healthcare field, I have shifted my practice to focus on the animal-human bond and the inevitable losses and challenges within this relationship. Caring for animals and saying goodbye present unique challenges. It is an honour to walk alongside you in this process.
