Grief, Loss, and Life: A 7-week Group Process
How we experience grief and loss is as varied and unique as each individual; so too are the triggers for feelings of grief. We may feel numb or overwhelmed by our feelings. Perhaps we don’t know where to turn or feel that what we’ve been doing hasn’t been working.
However you identify your experience, the grief journey can be a highly personal – and sometimes isolating – one. But you’re not alone.
We invite you to join a seven-week processing group, Grief, Loss, and Life, to honor individual loss experiences. In the group, we will introduce concepts, processing, and activities that foster learning and support.
While all losses will be honored in this group, a 30-minute, complimentary intake call will be required to ensure the right fit.
Wednesdays 7-8:15pm | October 5-November 16, 2022
This group meets virtually via a HIPAA-compliant platform.
- Open to Virginia residents, age 18+
- We ask participants to commit to attending the 7-week set of sessions to help foster group cohesion
- A complimentary 30-minute intake call is required to ensure the group is a good fit for each client
$80/session ($560 total) due in full on/before the first session. Payment plans may be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
Please contact Natalie, group facilitator, with questions or to join.

Over the last few years, it has seemed that the world around us is full of grief. Whether it’s for the pre-pandemic world, a job, financial security, or the loss of a loved one, grief has become more of a collective experience. There is a lot of advice out there on how to “handle” or “manage” grief, with the idea that it’s something with a finite conclusion. But the reality is that grief is not something that goes away with time. Rather, it’s an experience that morphs and changes over time. Perhaps it’s more helpful to think of grief as a journey, rather than a destination.
Our human experience includes the need to mourn. No matter the loss type, the outward sharing of inward feeling is necessary. But, it does not mean we all activate it in the same way. In fact, part of the unique journey we undertake is finding with whom and how we share with others. It is, however, a part of processing that needs to be heard and witnessed.
