Hospice counselor to discuss coping with grief in Asheboro library talk

ASHEBORO – Grief is an all-encompassing experience that impacts the griever physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

And although it is universal and touches everyone at some point, it also is a highly personal experience.

Join Hospice of the Piedmont bereavement counselor Kirsten Goard, MW, LCSW-A, for “Grief 101” at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, January 16, at the Asheboro Public Library.

Her talk is free and the public is invited.

Goard will provide an introduction to the grieving process and explore common reactions to the grief experience, in order to normalize the grief journey, dispel common myths associated with grief, and equip participants with practical strategies for coping.

A Greensboro native, Goard holds a bachelors degree in social work from Appalachian State University, and a masters in social work through UNC-Greensboro and North Carolina A&T State University. She joined Hospice of the Piedmont as a bereavement counselor with prior experience in crisis work and grief counseling in the healthcare setting.

The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6803.
