Counseling and Support Services at HLA

Promoting the health and well-being of animals, people, and the environment

We recognize the unique and lasting bonds between people and their companion animals. As part of the veterinary team, our social worker provides counseling and support, focusing on the needs of individuals and families.

Our social worker is available, at no charge, to provide counseling and support to you if your companion animal experiences an emergency, sudden illness, or is being treated for a chronic condition.

Our social worker advocates for you by helping you navigate difficult decisions regarding your pet’s health. Counseling is available that focuses on pet loss, grief, parent-child discussions, and other challenges that you may experience.

You Are Not Alone

Cummings Veterinary Medical Center’s clinical social worker, Eric Richman, MSW, LICSW, will be leading a free monthly gathering on the third Tuesday of each month from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  Next group meeting: December 19, 2017.

The group offers support to anyone who anticipates or has experienced the loss of a pet or companion animal.
