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!

Even if you aren’t a fan of Hollywood films from the 1980s through the early 2000s, chances are you can name the ethnicity of the “baddie” in 99.9% of them. Sure, my math might be a bit fuzzy––H’wood has a legacy of demonizing all brown-skinned folks––but an overwhelming number of screen villains during this period were either vaguely or expressly rendered as Muslim. 

Decades of prejudicial portrayals are no match for Arij Mikati, the managing director of Culture Change at Pillars Fund. She designs and leads programming that challenges damaging narratives about Muslims in the U.S. and amplifies Muslim voices in artistic spaces. 

What struck me most about this episode is the joy that Arij and Anne infused into a conversation that could’ve (rightly) focused only on pain and anger. Arij chooses to focus on hope, but her shift in mindset took time to nurture.


Arij Mikati is the Managing Director of Culture Change at Pillars Fund, where she designs and leads programming that challenges damaging narratives about Muslims in the U.S. and amplifies Muslim voices in artistic spaces. Her storytelling work seeks to change the lens through which Muslim stories are told to one that is authentic, complex, and honest.

Burnt Out Practice Owner Support Group

Hey Practice Owners!

Do you feel exhausted, over-extended, and under-appreciated?
Does the thought of returning to solo practice cross your mind from time to time (or more often)? 

If so, you’re not alone. 

Running a group practice is a challenging and often thankless job. And it can be hard for others to relate if they aren’t business owners too.

Join our support group starting January 2024:
