This is an opportunity to continue working through the grief and healing from your loss outside of your more immediate social and familial circles; a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment for you to feel open to expressing any ongoing thoughts, feelings, and emotions that continue to keep you up at night or creep into your day-to-day.
NOTE: This is not your run of the mill support group. I’m keeping it small (6 people max) and, as a licensed counselor, I will be providing you with practical tools and strategies to help cope with your loss and grief—both as a group and individually.
