Life After Loss

Life After Loss

  • • Are you reeling from a loss of some kind – whether recent or more remote? (Job, relationship, relocation, death of a loved one?)
  • • Are you struggling to build your post-loss life?

Join us for this therapy journey into rebuilding your life after loss.  This group has the following goals/purposes:

  1. To learn what a healthy grieving process looks like
  2. To face the layers of loss participants have endured
  3. To work through the pain of loss
  4. To adjust to the new “normal” of life
  5. To move forward into the life you are meant to live

Get Started
This is not just a support group.  The experience will be professional therapy led by Dr Andrea Dyben, LMHC.  It is designed to be an ongoing experience but will be delivered in four-week modules, meaning no long-term commitment.  Each four week module reserves a seat in the group which has a limited membership.  As a closed group, no new members will be accepted once the module begins.  This is designed to protect the safety and trust that must be built and maintained among the members in order for the group to function.  Thus, payment for the module is required whether or not you attend individual sessions.  No matter how many modules you choose to complete, you will gain a clearer understanding of the path you need to follow toward acceptance and hope.  Most importantly, the group format allows you to build connections with like-minded fellow sojourners that will continue long after the group ends!

Message from your group leader:

After losing my mother in my early twenties, I stumbled into this thing called counseling and was blessed with a guide who helped me make sense of my thoughts and emotions.  It was that experience which inspired me to do the same for others.  Ten years afterward, I walked across the stage with my counseling degree.  In the following years, I have continued to experience major losses in the forms of loved ones, locations, jobs, relationships, etc., forcing me to master the art of finding joy in the midst of sorrow…continuing to write my story despite the risks.  My personal therapy has also highlighted losses from my past that I had not recognized, allowing me to face the future with greater insight and wisdom.  Through experience and continuing education, I have developed a speciality in the area of grief and loss.  It continues to be a blessing to walk alongside others on this path of grieving and I look forward to this community of hearts ready to rise from the ashes!

Typical group procedures will include “round robins” where each person in the circle responds to a prompt and mostly spontaneous discussion centered around guiding questions provided by the leader.  Creative activities will also be provided which offer an opportunity to non-verbally process thoughts and feelings.  These activities will typically end with an opportunity to verbalize what was felt and thought during the activity.  In between sessions, participants will have assignments designed to facilitate application of group growth to real life.

The cost for this group experience which provides 6 hours of intensive therapy services is a total of $140 which is payable by the first meeting of the group.  This represents a significant savings over the standard $130 per hour therapy fee!  If any participants are unable to pay in full up front, a deposit of $75 is payable before the first meeting of the group.  A second payment of $75 would be due before the third meeting of the group.  A weekly payment plan of $40 is also available.  Note that payment is for your place in the group, whether or not you attend.

If your health insurance coverage is a PPO policy which offers some coverage for out-of network providers – we will be happy to provide a bill of service you can submit for possible reimbursement.  Please note that such reimbursement will require us to diagnose you with a mental health condition which would be noted on the bill of service.

Ready to transform your grief into new life?  Fill out the interest form on this page.  We will contact you to schedule a 30 minute assessment appointment with your group leader.  The cost for this session will be $35.  We want to build a group of folks who are ready and able to walk this kind of path.  Everyone is different and this group may not be the best fit for all those dealing with loss.  If “Grief After Loss” is a good fit, you will participate in the process of determining the best day and time for the group to meet.  You will receive the group’s service agreement and informed consent.  That’s it!

We look forward to beginning this important journey to healing with you.
