Finding Your New Normal: Living Day by Day

Tuesday, June 16     7:00 - 8:30 p.m.    Mount Olivet Cemetery
As the grief journey persists, we are often times challenged by returning to the norm that doesn't feel so normal any more.  How is it possible to live a new version of a life you miss so deeply, without the significance of your loved one's presence? We will discuss a variety of coping strategies that can support your process in finding the new normal, as well as deal with the emotional suffering that sometimes traps us. Presenter Michelle Marabella, LMHC, is a grief therapist in private practice and worked at Hospice Buffalo for over 18 years. 

Grief support groups are offered the 1st & 3rd Monday of each month at St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Cheektowaga at 4 p.m.  and the 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Kenmore at 7:00 p.m.  For more information, please call Nancy Weil, Director of Grief Support, at 716-873-6500.
