Healing Memories Support Group
Life as you have known it has forever changed. But as the old TV series title puts it: Life Goes On. You are still dealing with the loss of your loved one, and you will continue to grieve your loss for a long time. But we want you to know that you don’t have to face all those changes and harsh realities alone. Our Healing Memories Support Group is here to give you a safe place in which to express your feelings of grief.
Julie Jacobs, Connie Torsell LSW (Licensed Social Worker), and Pastor Joshua Andrews MA, LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor) lead these monthly meetings, which are open to the public free of charge.
