Good Grief Group

After losing a loved one, we experience a variety of emotions. The ever-changing emotions associated with grief can catch us off guard, leading us to act out of character.  While family and friends are vital, sometimes they just do not “get it.” That is where a grief group can become a valuable resource. We offer facilitation by a trained clinician and companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss, and are experiencing the similar challenges that living with grief brings.  Although most people around you probably avoid talking about loss, this group gives you the opportunity to openly share your story. You also have the opportunity to hear from others and talk about the most difficult days of our grief journeys.   This group is $25 per month and or a one time tuition of $100.
