Laura Jack is both a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and trainer for the Grief Recovery Institute.
She lives in Hood River, a mountain town outside of Portland, Oregon. She is dedicated to supporting people who have experienced loss on their journey of self-rediscovery. After her mom's sudden death in January of 2008, Laura began looking for ways to mend her broken heart. She quickly realized that helping others would play a significant role in her own healing journey.
With a degree from Emory University, Laura went on to become a massage therapist, holistic health coach, and a transformational life coach. As a coach, teacher, writer, and speaker, Laura uses her holistic approach to healing and self-love principles to guide her clients through life’s inevitable transitions and losses.
With her constant desire to learn and grow, Laura discovered The Grief Recovery Handbook and immediately realized that this was a piece of the puzzle that had been missing all along. She soon became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, and dedicated herself to sharing The Grief Recovery Method® with as many people as possible.
As the owner of Laura Jack Coaching, Laura not only provides Grief Recovery 1-1 Online, Grief Recovery 2 day Workshops, and Transformational Coaching Programs, she also guides other Certified Grief Recovery Specialists® in the Online Advanced Training to grow their practices and shift their mindsets.
After years of teaching The Grief Recovery Method, she wrote the #1 best-selling book, The Compassion Code- How to say the right thing when the wrong thing happens, to help the frontlines of humanity be more supportive in their compassionate communication without burnout.

A 4-day training on the topic of grief sounds grueling and difficult, but the way it is delivered makes you feel very supported as you learn and apply the method. While it fosters vulnerability, it also goes by quickly and even though a lot of information is shared, the way in which it is shared does not feel overwhelming in the least. I left feeling thoroughly equipped to do the work for myself and the clients I will serve. Well worth it!08/02/2023
I have more than 15 years of supporting grievers. It was time to update my toolbox. The certification training was perfect. Not only was it informative but it was a time of personal insight and healing.11/27/2018
Really caused me to reconsider old perspectives and thought habits. Gave me hope and straightforward actions to process healthily and feel my feelings...which is a tremendous gift. I’m so grateful that I did this workshop, wish I had done it years ago!2 1/2 Day Personal WorkshopsParticipant in Hood River, OR09/23/2018
I am so thankful that I found the Grief Recovery Method when I lost my friend to suicide. I had no idea that I had so many unhelpful beliefs about grief. I love the knowledge and tools I have gained from this program and I love getting to teach others the same knowledge and tools as a certified Grief Recovery Specialist. It has changed my life and gives me the opportunity to offer hope and healing to others..One-on-One Online Support03/27/2017
