About

Many of my clients describe losing a loved one was like being hit by a Mac truck. There is something unbelievable about how a loved one is no longer with us ;it is akin to a sudden shock. The need to tell one's story and organize the narrative is essential to the process of healing. Repeating the story in front of witnesses either in a group setting or individually helps integrate this new reality into one's frame of reference. The purpose of the sessions individual or group in to help to make you feel less alone in your personal tragedy. Repeatedly group members report a sense of healing being connected to others.
Having experienced the loss of a loved one can feel isolating. Connecting to an experienced grief counselor who can understand the process of grief and guide you through this makes the whole experience feel less overwhelming. The facilitator will also help to identify normal grief responses and suggest ways to encourage healing, such as creating rituals.
Bereavement Groups are widely considered to be the best therapeutic forum for coping with a loss. Each member will have the opportunity share his or her feelings while learning about the grieving process through the experiences of others. I organize bereavement groups for general need rather than structuring them around specific types of loss.

Brooklyn Bereavement's Groups

Bereavement Group

Bereavement groups are organized around the loss of a love one, not a particular type of loss. Members with different losses make emotional connections that I as a group leader could never predict. Here is some of what you can expect by participating in the group: • Meet over a video platform- facilitated by a compassionate grief professional. • Find the tools you need to help you grow and heal. • Share your experiences, thoughts, and feelings. • Talk with others in the same situation. • Learn more about what to expect from your grief. • Find healing and comfort through Alexander Technique and relaxation exercises.

More about this group

Virtual Bereavement Group for loss of Partner

The loss of a partner, spouse is one that creates an incredible feeling of loneliness. Often the "door knob moment" is very challenging, 'honey I am home'. being with others who have similar experiences is very healing. Losing a partner requires a thoughtful reorganizing of one's identity. This developmental task must be done slowly and cannot be rushed to avoid the pain of the loss. A group specifically provides this kind of support.

More about this group

Intergenerational Psychotherapy Group

I continue to be impressed witnessing the, powerful connections that emerge between members of all ages and stages of life;. the enormous benefit and sense of support that the group members gain from each other. In this group, we will explore what prevents each member from making connections. Somatic release exercises will be included in the group to help members identify the internal blocks which prevent them from reaching out. Goals are to mobilize strengths and experience safety and comfort in connecting with others. These experiences will help mitigate the feelings of isolation that can so easily feel overwhelming
