We are honored to present two free grief support workshops with Dr. Alan Wolfelt, noted author, educator, and grief counselor.

His compassionate messages about healing in grief, based on his own personal losses as well as supporting individuals and families over the last three decades, speak not only to the intellect, but the hearts of all who hear him. Perhaps best known for his model of “companioning” versus “treating” mourners, Dr. Wolfelt is committed to helping people help others mourn well so they can live and love well.
