Clinical Director: 

G. Jay Westbrook MS, RN

After three decades as both a clinical hospice nurse and Grief Recovery Specialist, Jay has exited his hospice role and is now focused solely on providing Online Advanced Grief Recovery services to people suffering or struggling with losses:


 --recent losses or ancient losses 

 --death-related losses or 

 --non-death-related losses (divorce, moving,     loss of hope, loss of faith, loss of health,           losses related to childhood abuse, etc.) 


Grief Recovery is the only evidence-based intervention for grief that allows truly meaningful & lasting healing and

re-engagement with life.

Compassionate Journeys:

Lessons From My Work With the Dying 

By G. Jay Westbrook

"An amazing, profound, moving, & inspirational collection of powerful stand-alone stories - shared in the narrative style of Native Americans - each of which illustrates a tool for co-journeying with the dying, and which can be used equally well with the dying, their families, or to train clinical professionals."
