 When we experience loss, it's hard to see beyond our bereavement. Watching our loved ones decline is one of the hardest life experiences. Through the group therapy bereavement process, we will discuss healing tools, share stories, and ways in which you can honor the memory of loved ones through creative means. 

This group is designed to support individuals who are suffering from losses due to: 

  • Bereavement 

  • Personal losses due to COVID 

  • Loss of loved ones through alcohol and/or substance abuse

Who:  Adults (Age 20+) 

When:   Bimonthly on Monday nights from 6:00 - 7:00 PM
