Grief Support Resources

Every person must cope with loss of a loved on his or her own terms.

During this difficult time, the team at Reuland and Turnbough understands that you and your family may need more than just practical support.  With this in mind, we have partnered with MTC’s local counseling staff to offer emotional support.

Included in this partnership are the following services:

·      Individual counseling

·      Family counseling

·      Child and adolescent counseling

·      Grief support group

·      Therapeutic art and storytelling activities for children during viewings and other events related to funeral services

MTC understands that the loss of a loved one can bring up more than just grief. Family relationships can experience unexpected stress; work and school obligations can feel overwhelming, and returning to meaningful life activities may take longer than predicted. 

Licensed clinical professional counselors are available to walk with you through this season of life.  Whether you choose to spend one hour or several sessions with a counselor, the professionals at MTC are honored to be a part of your process.

For your convenience, sessions can take place in a comfortable office setting or in your home.

For more information you may speak directly with a funeral director at Reuland and Turnbough (847) 234-9649.
