Support groups

There’s something 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

  • and the assurance of knowing you’re not alone.

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

I offer two sections of the group, on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 6-8 pm in midtown Manhattan. Each section meets in cycles of 10 meetings over the course of 4 months.  New members are welcome to join at the beginning of each cycle. The  cost for 10 sessions is $475. Space is strictly limited, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

If you live in the New York area and are 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.
