This is a sympathetic and caring group that feels like a tight hug.
When you experience a loss, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Octave’s grief and bereavement group will provide a supportive environment for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Surrounded by those who are facing a similar range of emotions, group members will receive and offer emotional support, while gaining an understanding of the stages of grief. Furthermore we will explore the impact of rituals and discuss different ways of memorializing loved ones.
Sessions are 60 minutes and held weekly, for 8 weeks. This group requires a complimentary consult call prior to enrollment.
