Wounded Healer Rising
A 4-Day Exclusive Retreat Experience
Take Yourself from Practitioner to Radical Witness
We all desire to be of service, it's why we got into this Work in the first place.
We want to help, we want to support, we want to guide and offer healing to the planet and our communities.
The problem is, however, that many of us burn out, we don't build the client relationships that we want and we don't feel like we have all the tools we need to be deeply effective.
The trainings we take to become healing artists almost always leave us without the knowledge we need to hold deeply transformative space for our clients.
We need someone to help us learn how to sit with clients when it's hard and overwhelming.
We need to understand how to use and implement our gifts as wounded healers.
We need accountability and honest feedback - we need to rise to our growing edge as space holders.
You deserve to feel compltely competent when you sit with clients...
A lot can go wrong when we're working in the intimate realm of the psyche and the body.
As practitioners, I want us to understand how to repair client ruptures and how to engage with the power and authority we hold as practitioners.
I want us to walk into our roles with deep integrity so that we are truly offering spaces of healing.
I’m gonna be your guide the whole way.
I have moving through the healing arts world since I was 22 years old and I have been through A LOT of trainings. From Massage Therapy School, to Holistic Midwifery training, to Shamanic Arts Practitioner training, to over a decade of Astrology training and finally, I went on to receive a masters degrees in Depth Psychotherapy. I have seen the good sides and the very dark sides of the healing arts world.
I have sat with hundreds and hundreds of clients from all over the world, acting as a compassionate and attuned witness. I understand what it takes to allow people to feel seen, heard and to ultimately find spaces of healing. I want to teach you how to do the same.
I have been to psychics, therapists, Shamans, pastors, preachers, tarot readers and more. Some of my experiences were wonderful and incredibly healing - some were psychically traumatic. I want us, as healing artists, to do more good than we do harm. We work in the tender and intimate realms with people and I want us to feel fully equipped to do so.
Introducing Wounded Healer Rising
Join me for a 4-day deep dive into the dynamics of space holding.
Meet others, who like you, are hungry to talk about what it is like to be committed to holding space for others and all the questions that go along with that.
Together, we will build deeper integrity into your practice and come together in authentic, communal space.
Wounded Healer Rising Retreat Outline
Day One: The Archetype of the Wounded Healer: In our first day together, we will explore your motivations for doing the work you do. We will uncover the particular wounds that draw you to this work and how they inform your practice. Understanding our wounds, informs our medicine. We will thoughtfully integrate the dynamic narrative of your life into the work you do with clients.
Day Two: Taking Back Service:
In our second day together we will explore the realm of service. What does it mean to be of service and how has it been misused in our western culture? We will explore the concepts of what it means to be called to service and how to protect the life giving elements of service.
Day Three: Core Practices of Radical Witnessing
In our third day together, we will explore and practice the three core tenants of Radical Witnessing. We will explore how to allow our clients to have hard and uncomfortable emotions without needing to fix them, how to responsibly engage in relational confrontation and how to set aside our agenda with clients in order to accept the outcome of their process.
Day Four: Boundaries and Burnout
This last day is dedicated to understanding why boundaries are effective in our practice and our personal relationship with them. We are going to learn and cultivate sustainable practices to keep you going with the work you offer. We end our last day with an incredibly powerful witnessing circle that will inform the gifts you hold as a healer for the rest of your life.
You are holding the role of the teacher, the guide, the healer, the Shaman, the witch, the wise one, the intuitive and the seer.
These are ancient and sacred roles to hold in our community - let's do it with deep integrity and training.

what my clients say
“I originally went to Jen to help me with my anxiety
and I have to say that I've tried several other types of therapy before but my sessions with Jen are really the only things that have changed the trajectory of my anxiety. I've really changed the way I think about my anxiety. When I feel an anxiety attack coming on - which is less and less these days - I kind of lean into it. I know that sounds simple and silly but it wasn't something I was capable of considering before Jen brought it up in our sessions. I'm now able to let myself feel all the feelings of my anxiety attack - not fight it -so they're shorter and less intense. The biggest thing is the next day, I really honor myself with some deep, beautiful self-care. I don't expect myself to be able to hit the ground running in the morning. I now honor that my body, my mind and my emotions have been through a lot and I feed myself nourishing food, read a good book or watch a movie and just take that time to myself, without feeling guilty and without beating myself up. Those are the two biggest things I've taken away from my sessions with Jen." Tiphini Axtell, Santa Fe,
“I am so grateful to Jen for her guidance through one of the most painful and transformative periods of my life.
I've been struggling to see what's true and authentic in my life and Jen is consistently an anchor for me when I feel so adrift. I have so much love for Jen.” Lisa Roach, Santa Fe, NM
“One of the most challenging aspects of life is feeling like you haven’t been seen or heard.
Jen has a way of working with her clients so that we are seen, we are heard — and, importantly, the conversation doesn’t feel clinical or prescriptive. Jen’s approach is soul-refreshing, and I truly enjoy her spirit and candor.” Kim Bryden, Washington, DC
“I came to Jen with a very specific intention for healing that I wanted to see if her work would be able to touch.
I was delighted that it did and immediately registered for her program. Her work has been invaluable in unraveling some old identity patterns and feeling my way into new relational dynamics with everyone in my life, but particularly with my family of origin. Her skill and intuition gently guided me through some major wounds, which have finally been able to clear, giving me the energy and courage to move forward in many areas of my life. I am very discerning in choosing practitioners to allow into my inner world and I have found Jen to be skilled, compassionate and wise. She is a Healer’s, Healer. Working with her has reignited my own introspective curiosity to a whole new level and I love sharing energy and space with this powerful, conscious woman. I will keep coming back for sure!" Justice Bartlett, Bozeman, MT
“I feel like a reborn human since starting my sessions with Jen
Jen is truly a life raft in the storm for me. I wish I had other words besides thank you to express what Jen’s work means to me. I really feel like I've claimed my wild self - that I understand Her and more of who I am. I am so grateful to operate from this place of being! I know Jen is holding space for me even when I'm not emailing or talking to her on the phone. I can SO feel it and I often sink into it when I need it. I am so appreciative that Jen is holding that big big supportive container for me! Thank you!" Stephanie Halligan, Boulder, CO
I have so many clients that come to me and say, "Jen, my last astrologer told me that I will never find love. Do you think this is true?" Or, "Jen, my last therapist told me that instead of working on things with my partner, I should just try polyamory."
Y'all. This is DAMAGING. People take on this stuff and carry it with them for DECADES. I do not want you to be one of these practitioners. I want you to leave your clients feeling seen, empowered, confronted and valued.
I want to teach you how to hold radical space so that your clients do not feel shamed and doomed, but so they feel they can make autonomous choices for their lives that lead them in creative directions.
When you lift your clients up in real and grounded ways, while honoring your own limitations, I promise you will have a full and satisfying practice of whatever kind of work you do.
Let's do this.
All the love in the world, Jen
