I have scaled down my practice, thus I have closed my office space.  The Counselling session location will be at the client's residence or another mutually agreed upon location.

Upon request, services may be provided by phone or online video conference using Skype.  Please contact Potje Pet Loss Services to discuss these possibilities.  My skype name is facebook:potjesj
