One of this program’s basic principles is that of confidentiality. Meetings and conversations will be kept confidential; those present or spoken to will be asked not to disclose to 
anyone whom we see or what we hear while at the meetings.

Each session is co-facilitated by 1-2 long-time EASAV members, Drs. Martin Schiebel and/or Nancy Bruyere and/or Smokey Walters, our Executive Assistant.  


We are not licensed counsellors and are not trained to give guidance on personal, social or psychological problems; we are veterinary professionals helping veterinary professionals and we look forward to helping our fellow peers!
