Grief, Loss, and Life: An 8-week Group Process

Grief and Loss. These terms can be loaded with deep feelings, and we sometimes avoid them at all costs. Sometimes we feel nothing or numb.  It can feel like a wilderness, with unending up hills or deep valleys.  We sometimes say it feels “foggy”.  We may not know where to turn or we may know that what we have been doing “doesn’t seem to be working”.  Often there are complex factors, family or interpersonal dynamics, isolation, longing, guilt, relief, anger, regret…our hearts ache. 

However you may identify your experiences, you are invited to consider this processing group for adults.

This group is currently paused. We encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed of future offerings. You may also reach out to Natalie to be added to an interest list for Fall 2022 sessions.

Upcoming sessions to be announced

We will introduce concepts, processing, and activities that foster learning and support.  Ultimately, this group process will be a sacred place to honor your individual loss experience. 

This is an 8-week group process, meeting virtually via a HIPAA-compliant platform.

Group Requirements:

  • Must be an adult (18+)
  • Virginia residents only
  • Participants must commit to attending the entire 8-week set of sessions (April 5 – May 24, 2022) to help foster group cohesion.
  • A complimentary 30-minute initial intake phone session is required to assess whether the group is a good fit for each client’s needs.  All paperwork and intake must be completed by March 31, 2022.
  • The fee is $80/session ($640 for the duration of the group).

Please contact Natalie, group facilitator, with questions or to join.

Grief is Hard, but THIS is Harder

We can choose to suppress grief’s attention-seeking signals; however, complete disregard for grief’s journey might create a more difficult path. Taking a pause and honoring some of our deeper grief emotions can be challenging. Yet, if these emotions are left in a box, ignored, or continually deferred, they may show up for us in far more egregious ways.
