JT Westerfield

Program Facilitator

JT aspires to be an authentic healer and social servant of the mystical, modern world. Like many before him, his passion and curiosity towards the healing arts have evolved from his own health challenges. Once blinded and burdened by the vices of disease, JT rejoices in the reprieve of his soft, sweet song of redemption. His undergraduate degree in social sciences from Florida State University has prepared him for the diverse and dynamic challenges that disrupt our collective social and spiritual harmony. Additionally, JT has pursued formal education and training in a variety of alternative healing modalities that have aided him along his personal path of recovery and his capacity to help others. He is a graduate of the Health Educator Program from the world-renowned Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he gained a thorough understanding of plant-based nutrition and its vital role in the detoxification of the body and the mind. He’s travelled to Lake Atitlan and the magical lands of Central America to immerse himself as a student of yoga and the therapeutic application of sound and ceremony. He is also a certified qigong instructor and personal trainer. He feels blessed and honored to facilitate programming at the Top of the World Ranch where he tries his best to connect with and inspire the spirits of those seeking peace, transformation, and recovery. He is continuing his education towards a master’s degree in vegan and live-food nutrition and essene ministry.

The vast techniques and processes that they incorporate along with the amazing environment and facilities at Top of the World Ranch are what I, as a recovering alcoholic and addict, find essential in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing and growth.


AMAZING facility with a knowledgeable, friendly staff. I recently had the opportunity to tour the ranch and I must say that I was thoroughly impressed. The facility grounds are expansive and absolutely peaceful. Perfect setting for healing, discovery, and recovery.


The Main Lodge is unlike any other treatment center...from the counselors' offices, the programming rooms, the games and leisure rooms, to the Chef's culinary skills...i was in awe. The staff, effortlessly, made me feel welcomed. I felt I belonged, I was safe.


On Top of the World Ranch , the place is amazing. The facility is beyond beautiful and lead by a staff that is the best in their field. It is tucked away in the country, just outside of the Quad Cities. Very conveniently located near airport or any of the Interstates , very easy to get to.
