Grief Counseling

​The funeral is behind you. Friends and family are getting back to their lives. But you can't stop thinking about your life and and how it has changed forever. You’re exhausted. The emptiness in your stomach drains you of all energy. The sadness is overwhelming.

At some point it is necessary to address and manage your grief, and you can only do this by understanding all of the emotions that comprise grief. Further, you need to understand that experiencing grief is a process, not a state of mind that you'll eventually "get through." Finally, you need to understand how grief affects the mind, body and spirit and the four tasks of mourning. 

Because grief is universal and because we all connect on the level of our pain and suffering, it is very important to connect with others who have lost a spouse. We do not offer "mixed grief" sessions; you'll only be with others who have lost a spouse.


Our next group session begins October 1st and will end on November 12th (skipping October 8th). Registration is open. To register click here. Thank you.  

Working in concert with Presbyterian Homes we offer 6-week group sessions for both widows and widowers in a safe and caring environment, led by Jenny Schroedel, an experienced grief counselor. There is no fee to attend, of course, but we do ask that you commit to all six sessions. We purposely keep our group size to about eight.
