Grief & Loss Spiritual Care - INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP SESSIONS at the Portland and Vancouver VA Campuses.
Grief & Loss Spiritual Care will assist you in exploring your natural response of grief and on through the healing process. Many associate grief with the death of a loved one—which is often the cause of the most intense type of grief—but any loss can cause grief, including:
- Divorce or relationship breakup
- Loss of health 
- Loss of financial stability
- A miscarriage
- Retirement
- Loss of a friendship
- Loss of a cherished dream
- A loved one’s serious illness
- Death of a pet
- Loss of safety after a trauma
- Losing a job
Each session, group or individual, includes time for 
individual grief work in a supportive and safe environment.
