Adult Grief Services



    Grief counselors facilitate interactive support groups in a confidential and comfortable environment in which participants share grief experiences with others.  Adult support groups meet for six or eight sessions.  Our ongoing Moving Forward group meets monthly.

    Educational workshops provide general information about grief.  Grief 101 meets monthly and is a prerequisite for adult support groups. Seminars are available for presentations in the community on various topics and can be customized to meet the needs of your group or organization.

    The year following a loss can be the most difficult for many.  During this time, we will provide quarterly mailings and phone calls to remind you of our grief support services.  You may choose to decline these calls and mailings but remember that you can reach out to us for grief support at any time. Click here if you would like to receive call and/or mailings.


    Our professionally trained counseling staff provides time-limited individual counseling for the purpose of addressing grief related to the death of a loved one.  Learn more about treatment modalities available to you:

    We believe that the process of grieving can occur in varying forms.  To that end we offer unique opportunities throughout the year.  Examples of these events are annual holiday events (such as our Tree of Lights), memorial services (such as butterfly releases), and venues where grief is explored and experienced through creative experiences.  Click here to see our upcoming events.

    Our volunteer Bereavement Buddy pairs trained volunteers with grieving individuals who would like weekly friendship-based contact.  Click the image below to watch a video about our Bereavement Buddy program.
