hey there!

I'm a coach for have-it-all checked out profesh moms who secretly dream of running away but know that's not really the answer.

I'm also the host of Going There - a show dedicated to all the stuff we keep deep down inside but shouldn't.

the podcast

cw: trauma, abuse including that of a minor

We can all agree…trauma sucks. And while we all wished it was different…trauma happens far more often than many of us even know.

If you’ve experienced trauma, you get the funny ways it shows up in your life from what triggers you to how you feel in your body. And it never goes away…you just find ways to work with it.

Eunice Brownlee and I dive into this and so much more in this raw + vulnerable story of trauma, resilience, and hope.

What I want people to take away from this conversation is the hope. That we are resilient, we are strong and there are ways to create safety in our worlds. There are people like Eunice, myself, and so many others out there that just want to help because we’ve been through it and we understand it. You are not alone.

ARE YOU READY TO GO THERE?

  • I cannot recommend this book highly enough and I recommend it lots! The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel Van der Kolk is an excellent read to help you understand how trauma is stored in the body and why your body reacts the way it does.
  • If this episode has you realizing you have unresolved trauma, I have lots and lots of resources for you.
  • The Kindred Voice – a space dedicated to helping women share their stories

 

EUNICE BROWNLEE has spent her career finding the balance between her left and right brains.  She is a passionate writer and writes regularly about mental health, trauma, and abuse. As a survivor of all three, she uses her experience to help others open up and tell their stories. She’s also a single mother, striving to raise a daughter who is strong and outspoken. When she’s not doing any of the above, she can be found seeking her next passport stamp and drinking wine.

Well hey there,

I am Bridgerton steamy sex scene level OBSESSED with helping women figure out exactly why they're so checked out and lie awake at night thinking this is not the life they imagined and wondering how the hell they got here and do they need to burn it all down and start over?






I'm Jen.

because that's a pretty exhausting way to live

Instead, I help them get clear on what a peeyourpants future means for them, get super curious and look at their lives objectively (because - hello - it's hella hard to identify what to change when we're knee deep in our emotions), decide which changes will have the biggest impact, and take intentional and thoughtful actions without having to burn down their entire world.

And because I'm a professional bossypants (actual title) and have the sense of humor of a 12-year-old boy - I'll get you there faster and with lots of inappropriate laughter while we do the deep inner work.

i'm so ready to get checked all the fuck way in!!!
