Grief Group

Following the Ghost Ship tragedy in December 2016 Pacific Center coordinated with Alameda County to provide 

counselors to family and friends of the victims.  Providing a grief therapy group is a continuation of our dedication to providing needed support services to our community.

Grief Group is a support group for anyone dealing with loss due to death of a loved one.

The grief group is offered at no charge and is facilitated by a licensed therapist and a Pacific Center clinician. 

This group runs for the duration of 8 weeks and is offered throughout the year.  Folks must complete an intake and commit to weekly attendance.

Please contact Laine Demetria, LMFT at 510.703.4766 or lainedemetria@gmail.com for more information.  The next group starts February 3 and runs through March 23, 2020 and meets at Pacific Center every Monday from 4:00-5:30 PM.
