Helping families, professionals, volunteers, and communities support grieving children, youth and adults

  • Andrea and Colleen co-own and operate AWC Grief Support Inc. They first met in 2012 through their roles as Children’s Grief Counsellors through the Max and Beatrice Wolfe Children’s Centre and the Dr. Jay Children's Grief Centre in Toronto, quickly recognizing their shared passion for supporting grieving children, youth and families experiencing the death and dying of someone close to them. Andrea founded AWC in 2014, and she and Colleen became partners in the practice in 2022. AWC Grief Support is a group therapy practice that is reflective of Andrea and Colleen’s collective knowledge and sensitivity to the needs of those who are grieving, while providing connection, community and support.
