Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton/Pathways of Hope Grief Counseling Center

At the Pathways of Hope Grief Counseling Center, the professionals work to educate individuals about ways to think about the common phases of the human grief experience. Some phases can be quite detailed and tedious, as grief tends to be sometimes. Others are extremely simple. The simple construct of “Remember, Rebuild” is exquisite in its wisdom.

Working Through Grief is a Process 

When working through grief, we need to spend time remembering our loved one, and embracing the past. We also need to spend time focusing on the present, as well as on the future, as we rebuild our life without the person. Time in both worlds is needed and will help us to heal. It may seem as though grief keeps us purely in one world for a while, and that is okay. It is important to know that we can move to the other world at any time.

Pathways of Hope Grief Support is Here as a Resource 

The Pathways of Hope Grief Counseling staff includes Masters and Doctoral prepared counselors, whose life work it is to walk with you as you journey in these worlds. It is this journey that provides healing over time. We are privileged to serve any adult, child, or teen that has lost a loved one.
