What is The Healing Center?

The Healing Center is a grief support community that offers support groups for those that have lost a loved one. We provide a space for grieving people to meet with others who have experienced loss. The Healing Center offers grief support groups that meet twice a month. We place you into a specific group based on your age or relationship to the person you lost. We also offer occasional social events for clients.

How do I start attending group at The Healing Center?

We require an initial intake in order to attend group. Intakes typically take 45 minutes and take place at our office. The intake is an opportunity for learn more about you and your story, as well as for you to learn more about the center.
