TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9

AVON – Hartford Hospital Family Health Center
Hartford Hospital Pet Loss Support Group – DORY DZINSKI, LPC
Our pets are our hearts. They are an indelible part of the fabric of our lives. When they leave us, the hole is nearly unbearable. However, the loss of a companion animal is a marginalized loss. Unless one has been lucky enough to experience the love of an animal, it is difficult to understand this loss. We may hear comments and questions that don’t match our feelings and we cannot find many places that will hold space for our pain. Come be with others who have sustained the loss of a beloved companion. Groups are facilitated by Dory Dzinski, Licensed Professional Counselor. There is no charge but registration is requested at 1-855-442-4373. OR Contact Dory for questions and registration: (860) 693-2840 or dorydzinski@comcast.net. Meetings are held at 339 West Main Street (next to Friendly’s on Rte 44). Additional meetings will be held on November 13, December 11.

Divorced Womens Support Group – DORY DZINSKI, LPC
Finding yourself alone again can be unsettling when so much has changed in your life. Or maybe you are finding yourself alone for the first time. Perhaps you feel broken, relieved, confused, lonely, excited, shamed, abandoned, helpless, etc. These are just some of the emotions involved in divorce. Join others who are single again due to divorce and learn tips for building self-esteem, coping mechanisms, discovering your individuality, and have some fun and companionship. I have been facilitating grief support groups for over 11 years. For this group, there is simple sharing and holding space for one another. The topics are open-ended and respected. All levels of participation are honored.
