spiritual nurture for animal caregivers with Rev. Eliza

Ordained in the Unitarian Universalist faith and experienced in working with people with various beliefs, Rev. Blanchard’s ministry focuses on spiritually enrichment and support for animal caregivers. She is also available to help create and perform rites of passage (naming ceremonies, weddings, funerals and memorial services) and for pulpit supply.

Please contact her for more information.

Services Rev. Eliza offers to animal caregivers:

For Animal Companions:

Rev. Blanchard can accompany you, your animal and your family through medical procedures and recovery, through euthanasia, and through the dying and grieving processes, as well as in memorializing and in celebrating the lives of loved ones.

For Veterinary Staffs:

Rev. Blanchard offers caregivers a chance for those who are feeling overwhelmed to be heard in a non-judgmental setting; she offers suggestions for renewing the spirit that match the lifestyles, beliefs and needs of the individual.

For individuals or groups, she offers a safe setting in which to process the moral stress of veterinary work. And of course she provides ways for staff members to acknowledge and to affirm the life-giving work that they do day after day.

For Rescue/Shelter Workers: “Compassion fatigue” is closely related to secondary post-traumatic stress syndrome. Rev. Blanchard has had experience offering spiritual counsel to those who suffer from P.T.S.D., and can offer narrative exercises as well as listening, meditation, and other spiritually renewing practices. She works with individuals and with groups.

Fees:

Individual spiritual counseling:

  • $20 per half hour/phone or in person
  • $40 per hour/phone or in person

Group/family counseling: $60 per hour for up to 8 individuals

Please contact Rev. Eliza about a sliding scale.
