One the great benefits of group work is undoing the aloneness people often experience in grief and for many years, a passion of mine has been to facilitate peer support groups to both ease isolation and gain resources to better cope with loss. At every meeting, members will be invited to share about their ongoing process, I will provide education on a particular theme related to your groups’ unique loss and there will be time to support one another as a community. These are typically 8-week groups consisting of 6-10 members who meet weekly for 90 minutes. Each group member will complete an interview with me prior to the beginning of the group to ensure a good fit. I may be offering one or more of these groups throughout the year; please contact me if you’d like to learn more about any of these groups or have an interest in participating.
