Grief Counseling Provides Emotional Support
After a loved one dies, you may feel lost and overwhelmed. At the same time, you may struggle with sadness, intense emotional pain, and even anger. However, grief can begin even before death occurs. For example, you may grieve the loss of the life you knew before your loved one became ill. To help you cope with your feelings of loss, Gilchrist offers one-on-one counseling, grief support groups, workshops and special events.
Grief Counseling and Resources
One-on-one counseling can help guide you through your own unique stages of grief—leading you to a life that is different but still rich in meaning. Our team of counselors are master’s prepared in counseling. They are also recognized by the Association for Death Education and Counseling for competence in bereavement and end-of-life care. Contact a care navigator if you are interested.
Support Groups and Workshops
Gilchrist offers support groups and workshops to help grieving family (including children and friends), as well as anyone in the community grieving a loss. More information about support groups and workshops.
