Grief Care Services

This includes youth in custody (working 11 years with Ray of Hope Youth Justice and Addictions Services), providing spiritual care to different communities (within the Free Methodist and Mennonite church), as well as providing grief support and counselling to teens, adults and seniors who have experienced different types of loss (including a placement at Parkwood Seniors Community). Jay will provide you with a comfortable and compassionate setting where you will be able to mourn your loss as you process and navigate your grief experience.
