My Story ...

I am passionate about teaching trauma-informed SOUL care programs because I have been through the muck and yuck of restoring my heart, mind, and soul back to health personally and professionally ... And I want this for you!

Here is the truth, I was taken down fast and hard by the symptoms of compassion fatigue (burnout) as a practicing psychotherapist. Forced to stop everything. That meant: stop seeing clients; stop attending births; stop being creative; stop building a business; stop being of service; stop writing; and stop generating an income to care for my family. 

Not only was I physically sick due to a compromised immune system, I was forced to look at the remaining unresolved trauma from my past that was contributing to the crash.

I was officially SOUL sick (for the second time around). 

I knew that the terms: compassion fatigue and burnout, did not do justice to what I was experiencing. As a trauma-informed Psychotherapist and previously, a practicing Doula and Traditional Birth Attendant, I had held a lot and witnessed a lot. 

Like you, I thought I was invincible to what I was witnessing, hearing, and holding. 

I believed that if I was serving and living my passion that I would have unlimited energetic resources and thus, could handle anything and everything - Can you relate? 

Well, I was wrong. 

A traumatic injury, when left unresolved, depletes you (to be frank, it guts you).

I learned that as a helping professional I am not magically protected from 'catching' a traumatic stress injury - nor are you. 

Worse off, because I had already healed from PTSD, I had a vulnerable nervous system. Like with any injury, if you jump back in too fast, too soon, you are at risk of re-injuring. 

This is exactly what happened to me: I dove in too fast and too soon, without nourishing my energy reserves. 

And the result? 

A collapse of the nervous system, immune system, mental system, heart system, and SOUL system. 

Burnout is NOT what is really going on underneath the surface; Burnout is a nice word that lessens the blow of how debilitating traumatic stress injury can be. 

Look, I really don't want you to be gutted emotionally, energetically, financially, relationally, and soulfully. So why wait until the symptoms are bad enough for you to 'relate' to what I went through? 

Start now, by learning how to prevent a traumatic stress injury from setting in AND (L)EARN the art of holding space for your clients! 

I have poured my knowledge, wisdom and soul into developing trauma-informed SOUL care programs and a Deep Dive Signature System that not only teaches you about trauma-informed soul care, but supports you to do the deep work to nourish, strengthen, and replenish your inner reserves so that you can continue to hold space for healing and transformation.

Sacred Story Keepers: Testimonials

Words from those who decided to dive in with full heart...

“The Sacred Story Keeper was somehow more than I anticipated it would be (and I had high expectations to begin with). I will use the tools and insight that I obtained so far not only in my doula practice, but when listening to the stories of trauma outside of birth.”

Sacred Story Keeper Member

“Learning about trauma-informed care one thing, unpacking your own story so you can be emotionally balanced for your kids and clients is very different. The in person portion allowed for a deeper invitation to unpacking my own trauma and recognizing the barriers and challenges our own clients may be experiencing when being faced with their own story. ”

Sacred Story Keeper Member

“Every type of birth and postpartum worker and persons who support families in these spaces, would both personally and professionally benefit from this program. I found so many aspects that will help me both personally and professionally. The in person portion and the people we met, and conversations we had, were absolutely invaluable. Jennifers vast knowledge in the area of trauma informed care is incredible to listen and witness, and be a part of her learning. ”

Sacred Story Keeper Member

“The Sacred Story Keeper workshop and training has helped me on a personal level to work through trauma and has given me the tools and resources to support my clients in my work as a Doula.”

Sacred Story Keeper Member

“I look forward to Jennifer’s mentorship as I work towards embodying the skills of a Sacred Story Keeper. Being able to listen deeply to families throughout the pivotal life event of birth, no matter how it played out, is support that is truly needed.”

Sacred Story Keeper Member

“The Sacred Story Keeper program has deepened my ‘head knowledge’ of trauma and has given me ‘body knowledge’ and experiential tools that I can bring directly and immediately into my acupuncture and doula practice. Jennifer is a gem - a true treasure in the birth world - and to learn from her in person has been a gift”
