Local Grief Support Group (or counselor)?

Any current recommendations for or knowledge of a local grief support group for an adult child who has recently lost a parent? Conflicted family dynamics and lots of mixed feelings in play. An in-person group would be great, or a therapist with openings, or an online group as a third choice. Thanks!

  Thank you for reaching out on behalf of another who is grieving over the loss of a parent.  Have you checked with the local Hospice?  https://www.hospiceeastbay.org/services/grief-support/

   They offer free bereavement help-- even if the deceased wasn't in their care.  Here's what their web page says:

" As a not-for-profit organization, we are committed to providing free bereavement services, not only to the families of our patients but to our entire community. We offer traditional emotional support counseling as well as innovative programs for children, teens and adults which address the wide range bereavement experiences."

  This particular Hospice is one which, happily, operates under the original vision of Dame Cicely Saunders (1950's England)--i.e. they help anyone who is grieving, for free. ALSO, they help anyone who medically qualifies for hospice care--even if they are UNinsured or cannot pay.  For 3 years, I was honored to be part of the Hospice Austin (Texas) which also follows this heart-based vision.  Sadly,the for-profit hospice organizations are growing by leaps & bounds in the US.
