Marybeth Haines empowers people to make choices that promote action, personal growth and healing.

For over 25 years, Marybeth has gathered a wealth of knowledge and experience from her training in social services, crisis prevention intervention, and counseling. Her focus on enhancing the quality of life for her clients has always been at the forefront of her work.

As an ordained minister, speaker, grief consultant and educator, Marybeth’s specialized focus is providing support in pet bereavement. She holds the strong belief that pets can teach people many things about life and so can the grief associated with their death. The pain of such a loss can be debilitating for many people. However, people can recover and Marybeth’s passion is helping them move beyond loss. Her work focuses on practical and supportive strategies for coping during this difficult time.

After obtaining her diplomas in Educational Resources and Special Needs and Applied Behavior Analysis, Marybeth began her career by providing support to people with physical and developmental disabilities. Soon she discovered those disabilities were indeed ‘abilities’ and her clients in turn taught her many things. It was a beautiful exchange of supporting one another. Throughout the years, Marybeth has upgraded her education and is is certified in Pet Loss & Grief Companioning, trained in the top communication tools of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Time Line Therapy™, Hypnotherapy and has worked with people and animals in a variety of settings. She is the author of The Power of Pets – 7 Effective Tools To Heal From Pet Loss and and From Empty To Empowered – A Journey To Healing From Unexpected Pet Loss.

Experiencing grief and loss many times during her life, Marybeth has made it her passion to share with others how to transform grief into healing. She was inspired to write this book after the recent loss of her beloved cat Kitty. She often refers to her favorite personal quote of “Pets come into our lives to bring us many gifts. It is when we open our eyes fully, that we can then truly see the magic that each gift brings.”

“You have it within you to grieve AND to heal – a wonderful blessing when you can see both sides” ~ Marybeth Haines



Marybeth’s Values

1

Integrity

Integrity is an important part of Marybeth’s daily communications. Being honest and consistent while including unconditional respect for each one’s individual journey frames the foundation for healing.
2

Sharing

Sharing of information is a vital part of the healing process. When we are open to sharing, we also open ourselves to receiving. This allows for a beautiful exchange of support and empowerment.
3

Education

We learn every day of our lives. Each day brings new experiences and opportunities. Our choices represent how our lives continue forward. Learning is a significant part of healing and a valuable tool available to all.
4

Growth

As we continue to respect, share and learn, we find that we also grow. Growth is a massive area of the healing process because it is that when we grow, we heal. If we do not grow, we remain stagnant but when we choose towards growth we can find how powerful it really is.
5

Trust

In any type of relationship, trust is required. Trust is an integral part of healing and without it, the framework of support cannot exist. Marybeth strongly believes that once the foundation has been laid, the house can then be built. Therefore, once trust has been established, the doorway can open and healing can occur.
6

Optimism

There can be goodness in every situation. An optimistic mind can improve and affect one’s physical health, mental health and overall state. Through her own personal experience, Marybeth has found that choices produce the outcome of what we hope to accomplish. And when choosing to be positive in daily interactions, we can begin to experience things in a different light. Can things still be challenging? Of course they can however the message here is in the “how” we choose to handle the obstacle. “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”Victor Hugo Les Misérables
