Grief Counseling


Supportive counseling is available to anyone in our community who is grieving a death or coping with a life-limiting illness. Grief counseling is offered at any time, after any death. Counseling is also available to support individuals with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones, offered at any time after diagnosis.

Counseling is provided by Licensed Therapists, Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapists and Associate Clinical Social Workers, and Master’s Prepared Trainees under the clinical supervision of licensed staff.

Sessions typically provide clients with both emotional support, information, and an opportunity to explore how they can more effectively negotiate these challenges.

Counselors are available for adults, children and families.

All services are provided free of charge. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Support groups are offered to allow the bereaved to find comfort and support by connecting with others in similar circumstances. Support Groups provide emotional support and education about the grief process. Groups are also available for individuals who are struggling with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones.

Support Group meetings are offered according to the needs of the community, and often change to meet those needs. The current schedule of support groups is online and regularly updated. 

Support groups are offered in different formats, both in person and virtually. HSLO County’s virtual support groups are facilitated through Zoom OR telephone with preregistration and access code assignment.
