"Grief Counseling is a healing space for individuals, couples, and communities to receive support to grieve. It's a sacred time to practice gently welcoming your grief and bringing a compassionate curiosity to what you are feeling in the present moment. This type of support guides you to turn towards your experience with love and provides an opportunity to come out on the other side stronger and more resilient. You will also receive new tools and resources to continue your healing moving forward."
