"I come to the healing arts by way of my own healing."

I came to the healing arts in 2005 when, as part of my marriage vows, I committed to keeping pace with my partner Jonathan's prior inner work and healing training, which was what made me fall in love with him. I trust I'm keeping my word.

My training began with the IM Mystery School of NYC & Ithaca (now closed) and hospice. It continued with MotherWoman (now Group Peer Support) then with both levels of Path of the Healer Apprenticeship in Wholeness Energetics, Death Seedling Life's Fellowship in Grief & Death, plus additional trainings, while continuing my inner work and metaphysical study.

My path has included a prior 20+ year career in education, mostly teaching college-level academic writing, later-life marriage & children with one of my oldest friends, postpartum complications, and a rough initiation into motherhood. It's included relocating from western Mass to the mountains of North Carolina to share life with our only siblings in 2108, caretaking the family medical practice Mountain Medical Arts as of 2022, and surviving our teen son's death by suicide in 2022. My healing opportunities have also included an autoimmune disorder, codependence, the effects of many generations' wounds on me and enough resilience to break some cycles.

I come to the healing arts knowing I can heal only myself. But that I can support your own healing by joining with you, along one of the many paths up the mountain. And that together, we can move mountains. I can attest to the many humbling tests and lettings-go these paths seems to entail. I too experience the perpetual choice of what some say is the only choice,  each and every moment: between fear or faith.

I welcome you wherever you may be in your healing journey, as calls for healing can show up anywhere, from conflict or yearning in roles and relationships to professional or artistic quandaries and pursuits, from psychological struggles or trauma to physical ailments or illness, even from practical challenges to metaphysical quests.  Together, we journey further up these paths, toward our own healing, toward the home of our highest and best Self.

                                                                                                                  Warmly,

Jenn

"Jenn helped me turn being stuck into an amazingly wonderful and productive life journey.... I had never experienced the type of energy work that she does and was skeptical at first. Her skillful guidance through exploring a very difficult part of my life allowed me to actualize inner strength I didn’t realize I possessed as we revisited and healed a past trauma at the root of this block. The result has been absolutely amazing—almost too good to be believed… except that I’m living it. My writer’s block lifted, my dissertation direction clarified, plus I feel more deeply than I have in years that I am truly on the path I was meant to be on—the right life path for me. It is wonderful to feel this in tune with the universe, and I credit [what came through] Jenn with guiding me to an inner place where I was able to heal a deep block that I had not realized was holding me back so much."
