Below are resources we have found are often helpful when searching for a grief counselor.
National and International Resources:

- Local Hospices or Funeral Homes: Often your local hospice or funeral home will have information about what bereavement services are available near you. They may even be able to offer you services such as support groups and counseling through their organization.
- Our “Companion” Database: We have a growing referral list of individuals who have graduated from our training courses and earned the Death and Grief Studies Certification. Some of the graduates may not provide direct care, but they may still be able to refer you to grief counselors in their region or area. You can search our “companion” database below. Please feel free to call us at (970) 226-6050 for any questions.
