Group Companionship

The holiday season can add to the pain of losing a loved one and trigger feelings of extreme sadness, anxiety and depression.

With weekly discussions and themes focused on finding some peace these holidays, this series offers a space to share, heal, and find hope during emotional and challenging times.

Coming soon  and meeting weekly for 8 weeks, group companionship provides the opportunity to feel heard and deeply understood as authentic connections are created and nurtured.

Phone/Email Companionship

The loss of a loved one can be a highly traumatic experience.  Many people feel disoriented and out of control as the worlds they knew and understood will never again be the same.  Panic, fear, anxiety, sadness and depression, can often hit us out of nowhere and leave us feeling defeated.  Leaving the house is sometimes just not an option.

When you need unconditional support and someone to talk to, reaching out to a trained and experienced professional can be an affordable and convenient option during difficult times.

In-Person Grief Support

Processing the severe pain attached to grieving a spouse, child, parent, sibling, or friend can feel like a daunting and impossible task.

Often times we may feel as thought we do not want to burden our friends and family with our feelings, so we burry the pain until we can manage it on our own.

Gifting yourself with the dedicated time and space to feel and express all of the uncomfortable emotions that accompany loss can be extremely healing and transformative. 

Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.

William Shakespeare

The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not ‘get over’ the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler

Embrace your grief for there your soul will grow.

Carl Jung
