GRIEF & LOSS COUNSELING
When Animal Companions Leave Us
Our animals are always happy to see us. They delight in our presence, and they trust us and count on us totally. The loss of an animal friend is often the loss of knowing how to love innocently and the fear that we will not love that simply or totally again. Press Play to Listen.

The Wonder of Teddy Bears
By Kaleel Sakakeeny
I'm Kaleel, and I want very much to help.
My work as a certified animal grief counselor and coach reassures those in pain that there is help and healing. I offer a place for my clients to share their grief and know they are not alone, so that together we can begin the healing process.
In addition to the certifications listed here, I also hold an MA and an MS
degree in communication arts.
What Others Are Saying…
"Working with Kaleel is very much a partnership thing. I love the way he listens, and the kinds of questions he asks are not always easy to answer, but are always very insightful. They teach me things about myself..and I'm very happy to see that he too learns from me, and isn't afraid to show that. A great coaching experience."
"It's amazing the blocks we put in our own paths toward who we want to be, or what we want to do. At least I did. Kaleel has an amazing ability to shine an 'ah-hah!' light on those blocks...so removing or stepping around them becomes so much easier."
"Kaleel has a very special listening skills…so few people have that..which means he knows just the right questions to ask...and those questions can lead to wonderful, exciting discoveries."
"Kaleel’s insight, ready ear and easy-going nature often turn a simple conversation into a moment of self awareness and a potential outline for conflict resolution. You may start with a friendly cup of coffee but by the last drop he’s introduced you to a new perspective on how to look at specific issues or given you some added tools to address whatever may be of concern. Of course the work is up to you, but Kaleel’s approach makes it feel possible, and that’s half the battle."
