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!

A flight attendant and a music teacher walk into a podcast… But not just any podcast, mind you. This is CWH’s 100th episode! To celebrate, OG listeners Rachel and Margaret join the show to get giggly and get deep. 

They bond over their favorite episode (10!), and turn the tables on Sarah with a few questions of their own. Tons of fun, loads of a-ha! moments, and a couple dozen swears (naturally). Plus, the scoop on how Charlie the pyrite skull became the show’s mascot.   

“You can be in service to others and still be on your own journey yourself,” That’s Margaret, a multitasking mother, musician, teacher, freelancer, and Patreon of this podcast, describing a CWH truth she’s come to rely on while pursuing her own degree in social work. “I had this illusion that people who are therapists and people who help others have to have all their shit together already before doing that. I always felt like, well, I don’t have my shit together so how can I help anybody else?” This podcast isn’t called Conversations With A Wounded Healer for nothing! 


For superfan and flight attendant Rachel, the emotional stakes of her day-job couldn’t be higher (pun intended). She’s paid to literally help passengers keep their sh*t together! Beyond that though, she credits CWH showing her how to just be after resurfacing from an emotionally raw 2019. “Listening to your podcast, it was the first time that I realized ‘Oh, no, like, therapists can be human beings and they can be flawed and complicated and that’s ok!’ That’s been the main part of my journey and realizing that I actually do want to go back to school to be a therapist.” Low life moments lead to higher lessons, everybody!

100 episodes in, this supportive community of wounded healers continues to grow and amaze with their insight and energy. Whether you’re starting out here or have listened forever, thank you!
