Jamie Willis-Lindamood, GRM Specialist & Social Media Manager
Jamie joins 3D Pathways as a successful entrepreneur with an eye for beauty and a heart for people. We are blessed she's chosen to join our team. Hear directly from heart:
Grief is found in many places, some are unexpected, but most are painful. That pain doesn’t have to persist and shouldn’t be tucked away.
For a number of years I have been a sounding board for hurting people. I tried to help them navigate through, giving the best advice I could offer, while attempting to hide the negative emotions and feelings that I personally struggled with.
Then, someone who recognized both my passion for helping others, and the pain that I was dealing with introduced me to The Grief Recovery Method . For that, I am so grateful because it changed my life and the ability to move forward in a positive manner was regained. After personally experiencing the impact of the program, I knew it could help so many others and I needed to be able to share it.
Now, as a Grief Recovery Method Specialist I am able to truly make an impact by helping guide others through this program. This program isn’t exclusive to death and divorce. Whether you are feeling grief from one monumental event or multiple smaller events that have occurred throughout your lifetime, I can not recommend The Grief Recovery Method enough.
Do not stay stuck, you deserve to move forward, I am here to help. Let’s take the next step together!

"He made me feel safe"
I was very apprehensive about seeking help, particularly the required sharing that it would take. However, I was open to trying as I knew that professional insight would be of great value to me.

I am now in a much better place.
