About this week’s episode

Mindy has experienced multiple forms of grief: loss of health (cancer), unexplained infertility, loss of friends through death or life transitions, and pet loss. Having specialized in pet loss, Mindy says as a society we just don’t have the rituals and the support to support those who lost a pet in the same way we do when we lose a human being. As a therapist, she focuses on supporting clients after pet loss and shares with us what she has learned from those people dealing with their losses. 

About this week’s guest 

Mindy Meiering, LCSW is a licensed therapist, certified coach, and mindfulness teacher who specializes in grief and loss. She began her career as a psychotherapist in 1995 and over the last three decades, she has supported countless individuals and families as they face serious illness, end-of-life issues, and other significant losses and life transitions. Despite her extensive experience with grief, she was blindsided by how devastated she felt after losing her first dog, Ellie. Her personal experience helped her understand how heartbreaking the loss of a pet can be and inspired her to become a Pet Loss & Grief Specialist and create the Rainbow Bridge Pet Loss Deck. She lives in Colorado with her husband and their two scruffy terriers, Izzy and Charlie.
