When you're struggling with your own terminal illness, or the illness or death of a loved one, the understanding and guidance of a professional counselor can be a vital lifeline.

We provide free, confidential counseling to both adults and children who are facing a terminal illness, planning for end-of-life care, or grieving the death of a loved one. Our counseling services are provided by licensed, experienced professionals who understand what you're going through and can help you navigate the emotional landscape of illness and death with sensitivity and compassion.

We also offer a range of support groups for adults as well as children. Please click here to access our support group directory.
