    Grief can feel like getting hit by a tsunami.  The feelings can overwhelm you in an instant.  We can help you regain your footing and find hope again.

    Go beyond telling the grief story..find out how to free yourself of the regrets, guilt, resentments and anguish of grief to find a new meaning and purpose in your life.  Whether your loss happened long ago, we can help give you the support and skills to deal with navigating the world again.

    The 8-week grief support group starts Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 6-8 pm.  The cost of the entire program is $270.  Payment plans are available.  Please don’t let finances deter you from participating. This is not an occasional drop-in group.

    Our groups are structured meetings that build support, educated about grief, and gives you hope and skills for you to regain your footing after your world has been turned upside down.

    Call today to reserve your spot in the group or ask questions.
