About Grief Shared, LLC

My vision for many years has been to create a safe environment for the bereaved where they can share and be supported in their grief. The gift of human connection is integral in moving through grief, yet so many people feel disconnected and adrift, unable to find anyone with whom they can freely express themselves without fear of judgment; someone who understands that simply getting up in the morning is sometimes enough of a victory for the day.


For over 10 years I have facilitated grief support groups as a Hospice patient care and bereavement volunteer. In addition to a Certification in Death, Dying and Bereavement (Certified Thanatologist), I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and am a Registered Nurse.


I offer you a safe haven: a place to share, where your feelings are truly honored, and the unwavering support to help you through your grief.

Kathryn Hayden, CT, RN

Grief Shared, LLC



I first met Kathryn Hayden at the Community Grief Support Group.  I started attending the meetings because I had lost my daughter Jennifer, who was 27 years old and was my best friend. I was totally lost. I started the meetings Kathryn hosted hoping for some help, in whatever form. This group helped me get around the toughest time of my life.  As much as the grief never goes away, to be able to make it manageable is a lifesaver. Kathryn has the strength and compassion people like me needed so badly.  Her positive attitude and ability to get through to those who don’t know what direction they are going is a wonderful gift.  I will always be grateful for the support I was given. Losing someone you love so much is completely devastating and it takes caring, supportive, and strong people like Kathryn to make you feel alive again. Eternally grateful, Michele H.
