Grief is the most normal and natural response we experience when dealing with a life-limiting illness or the death of a loved one, yet it can be very difficult to bear.
Our highly trained grief counselors are available to help you understand your feelings and thoughts, and guide you through the process of coping with the death of a loved one. We offer a variety of adult grief counseling and grief support group options at multiple locations across San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County.
Our adult grief support services are available to everyone in the community, including families who do not have an affiliation with The Elizabeth Hospice.
Adult Grief Counseling
Grief group support is available for individuals, couples, families and children.
Recognizing that everyone grieves in his or her own way, we offer a range of techniques and tools. These include experiential therapy (expressive art and play), traditional talk therapy, and support groups. We also specialize in treating people whose painful emotions are so long-lasting that they have trouble coping with the loss and resuming their own life.
Adult Grief Support Groups
Grief support groups provide an opportunity to connect with others who are grieving the death of a loved one. Led by professionally trained grief counselors and volunteer facilitators, grief groups are a safe, nonjudgmental place to find comfort care and to learn coping skills. Specialty groups include Parent Loss, Child Loss, Spouse/Partner Loss, and Pregnancy and Infant Loss. We also offer a Young Grievers Group and a Book Club.
Adult grief counseling sessions and grief support groups are being conducted via Zoom, a video conferencing tool, until the COVID-19 health restrictions have been lifted. Click HERE to view the schedule of support groups.

Grief and the Holidays
Holidays are times typically spent with our loved ones. Navigating through the holiday season can be especially challenging after the death of your special person. Here are some resources to help you during this difficult time.
