Board Member | Helena, MT
Judy Fay’s passion for assisting others through periods of transition has marked her professional service for nearly 40 years. As a counselor in private practice she specialized in grief and bereavement care, depression, trauma, life transitions, relationship difficulties, and spiritual growth – using a variety of modalities to address both psychological pain, and spiritual suffering. Her experience has given her an acute appreciation for the depth and breadth of human experience; psychologically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
Judy served on the staff of an early alternative education school for at-risk youth, and as the staff counselor of an adult education and retraining program for displaced homemakers. She is a founding member of several Helena non-profits including the Helena Women’s Center, a domestic violence shelter, and Helena Life Transition Network, a community organization dedicated to providing end-of-life education. Over 20 years ago she trained as a music-thanatologist at the Chalice of Repose Project (CORP), Missoula, MT. She has since provided music vigils for those at end-of-life and their loved ones in Helena, MT, through her palliative care service, Sacred Passages.
