Journeys Bereavement Support Group

Deborah Roys Gertiser, LCPC

This group for anyone coping with a loss is designed to help you find your path on a healing journey during and after loss. The group is facilitated by a licensed bereavement counselor.

Each person’s loss may be different, stemming from loss of health, function, a loved one, financial loss or any type of grief. Participants may express their grief through sadness, guilt, yearning, weeping, hopelessness, anxiety, fear, numbness, anger, shock, confusion and more.

At Journeys, you are not alone. Journeys provides a safe place to tell your story, as many times as you need. You will meet a caring group of people who are experiencing similar feelings.

Due to COVID-19, this support group will be meeting by Zoom for the forseeable future. Please contact facilitator Deb Gertiser at to receive an invite.
