A Journey of Grief to Wholeness
with Donna 

Grief, Horses & Healing: Support for Pet Loss

Welcome to a space of solace and healing, dedicated to those who have experienced the profound grief of losing a cherished pet.


I'm Donna Carlson and am a Certified Coach in Equine Gestalt, Human and Pet Loss, and Women's Empowerment.


My passion is helping individuals navigate the complexities of life and grief to find peace and purpose and embrace joy once again.

Understanding Your Grief: In our grief coaching sessions, we delve into the depth and uniqueness of your emotions. I've walked the path of profound loss, from many beloved pets to dear family members and I recognize the weight of sorrow that accompanies these experiences.

Coping Strategies: Together, we explore practical and meaningful ways to manage grief on a daily basis. Whether it's creating a sacred space for remembrance or finding solace in daily rituals, our sessions are tailored to your unique needs.

Supporting Yourself: Grieving is a journey best undertaken with support. Our sessions focus on seeking comfort and guidance on how to process your grief fostering understanding and compassion for yourself.

The Healing Power of Connection: For those who have lost a pet, connecting with animals can be a source of profound healing. Through my Equine Gestalt Coaching sessions with my healing herd, you'll explore the deep healing process that horses provide, embark on a transformative journey and find peace with your loss. Our sessions are not only traditional talk therapy but provides a unique experience where the majestic equine becomes an active partner in your healing. Together, we'll explore somatic emotions, release pain, and begin the journey to feeling whole again.

From Grief to Joy

"When I met Donna I was feeling hopeless with grief. After 6 months of healing I am hopeful with joy. I have learned to let myself feel those difficult emotions I was hiding from and confront them with the healing strength of the herd. Once I could do this I could move on from my grief. I opened my broken heart one more time to receive the healing that Donna was able to give me. I’m so glad I did. I am forever grateful for this life transforming experience."
