“Loss of a Loved One”

Life changes forever and you change forever. Your grief journey is shaped by the special relationship that you shared. In your Afterwards Journey, embracing your grief allows you to sit with it, listen to what it’s telling you, wrestle with the hard parts, learn about yourself, let go of what keeps you stuck, and move forward.

Join Loretta Depka with our special guest, Pat Obst, LCSW, to talk about the loss of loved ones. Held at 6:30 pm on four (4) Thursdays in June:


Pat Obst is a therapist who specializes in loss and grief. Pat has walked the grief journey with many clients and has experienced losses personally. This led her to create the Afterwards Journey, to help clients grieve, heal, and recreate their lives after loss.
