Conversations With a Wounded Healer

Who’s a wounded healer? It’s any one of us who works in a caring profession and is bravely doing their own work, while helping others. My goal is to share the parallel journey we as healers walk along with our clients and how we attend to our own humanity while caring for others.

My podcast is about conversations and community building, what we can learn from each other, and how we can help heal each other. We’re cultivating a space where we celebrate vulnerability, authenticity and “showing up.”

It’s a place to meet people I think will inspire you, help you heal and grow – and who you can relate to at the same time.

I’m inspired by C.G. Jung’s “wounded healer” concept, where the healer’s own hurt that gives the measure of his own power to heal.

Another one of my heroes, Brené Brown, puts it best: “Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.”

Together, I hope this marriage of vulnerability and professionalism will inspire and entertain you...enjoy!

Rachel Inberg is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and writer from New York. She regularly treats incest survivors, drug addicts, and victims of gang violence. She has spent ten years in school learning how to care for other people; her writing is the result of her learning to care for herself.

Rachel's nonfiction and poetry have appeared in the Huffington Post, The Rumpus, Panoply Zine and the Narratively and Tin House collection "Memoir Mondays." David Simon, creator of "The Wire" and HBO's "The Deuce" has called Rachel's work "...painful, powerful, and honest."

Rachel and Sarah talk about impostor syndrome, connection as the most important aspect of healing, and how becoming a mental health professional led to a greater understanding of how to help oneself.
