  • Are you bereaved, anticipate bereavement, or have experienced a major loss?

  • Are you taking care of a loved one who is seriously ill?

  • Has your life changed or will change?

  • Do you wonder whether there is a future or what it would be like?

  • Do you feel that you are no longer like your old self?

  • Are you more irritable or angry than you used to be?

  • Are you doing, feeling, perceiving things you consider different from before?

  • Has your memory suffered or do you have difficulty concentrating?

  • Do you have trouble sleeping, feel tired during the day or have noticed a change in appetite?

  • Are you concerned about your physical health?

  • Are you wondering how to respond to a well-meaning environment which just seems to miss the mark? Which wants you to "move on", overwhelms you with "good advice" and has ill-conceived expectations of how you should feel and act?

    OR: Are you looking for support for yourself or a family member while a loved one is seriously ill?

    OR: Are you wondering how to help a grieving family member or friend?


    Because I was bereaved as a young spouse, have been there and experienced traumatic grief, I can help you gain an understanding of what is happening to you or a friend and how to cope with loss, grief and trauma. And:

    I have twenty years of clinical experience with individual and group counseling and psychotherapy as a Licensed Psychologist, National Certified Counselor, and Fellow of Thanatology (Death Education, Grief and Loss Specialist).

    All groups are facilitated by Dr. Weide.
