We know that this is a challenging time, which may feel especially hard if you are grieving the loss of a loved one. Read below for information on our Grief Counseling Services. We have also created a Resource Page with you in mind: follow this link for grief support resources, ideas for healthy coping, and resources for supporting children.
Mourning the death of someone you love takes time. Your heart and mind need to find their way — in their own time. Grieving is a deeply personal and a gradual experience. The counseling we offer is about recognizing where people are in this process, helping them identify their strengths, and assisting them in developing ways to cope.
When a loved one dies, mourning is an essential step in the healing process. Counselors work with clients to validate the experience of grief and find strength and coping skills.
While grief is very personal, there are many common experiences that accompany the death of a loved one. Talking with a counselor enables clients to learn more about the grief process and to identify particular areas of strength and support, as well as areas of potential growth.

Pet Loss Support Group
If you are mourning the death of a pet, please know that you are not alone. We offer supportive resources for children, families, and adults who are grieving the loss of a beloved pet or animal companion. Our monthly support group for adults takes place the 3rd Monday of each month via Zoom. Pre-registration is required. Call (336) 331-1300 for more information.
Our grief counselors also tailor educational presentations for the broader community. Whether for schools experiencing the death of a student, for businesses facing the death of an employee, for faith communities seeking to design bereavement and support services for members, or for community agencies who want to learn more about grief education, counselors are available for consultation.
Programs are designed with unique audiences in mind. Topics include general grief education, grief in the workplace, sudden or unexpected death, suicide, and grief during the holidays. Counselors also address the many misconceptions about the grief process and help participants better understand their own grief responses, as well as the responses of those around them.
