Support groups

All of my support groups meet on Zoom, and are open to survivors of suicide loss regardless of location. Groups meet continuously throughout the year. Contact me  for more information.

There’s something so powerful about sharing in the comfort of a safe, warm, welcoming group setting:

  • the experience of being truly seen and heard,

  • the insight that comes from learning how others have coped

  • the assurance of knowing you’re not alone

In addition to  comfort and understanding, group members also receive useful resources for coping with this uniquely complicated and painful loss, including information about what the research says about suicide. 

Groups meet in 10-session cycles; the cost for each cycle is $295. New members are welcome to join at the beginning of each cycle. Space is limited, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

If you're interested in joining a group, let’s talk for a few minutes by phone – I can give you more information and answer any questions you may have. Contact me, and we'll take it from there.
