Caregiving

Bereavement Group

Do you know someone who is struggling with grief and the aftermath of loss? Fifth Avenue will offer a ten-week support group, led by counselor Ellen Theg. This group will meet via Zoom, and may meet occasionally in person if all the participants are in the New York area.

The cost is $125 for the full program and financial assistance is available if needed. To register, email Kristia Tolode ([email protected]) by Sept. 24.

Theg, a licensed psychotherapist and experienced bereavement counselor, has been counseling individuals on moving through grief and loss since 2001.

“The benefit of a bereavement group is the support and connection it provides with others during the grieving process,” Theg explains. Learning to live with the ‘absent presence’ of your loved one is a process, and we hope that this group will support your movement along this path to acceptance of your new circumstances.”
