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!

Hey, practice owner, how would you define your role in that business you worked so hard to create? Are you a visionary focused on pursuits related to company culture or community initiatives? Or are you a dedicated integrator, dutifully keeping up with basics like billing, payroll, and website upgrades?

Maureen Werrbach, LCPC, is a visionary for sure. She owns Urban Wellness, a multi-location group practice in the Chicago area. She’s also the innovative mind behind The Group Practice Exchange, where she counsels owners on successfully starting and scaling their businesses. 

In our conversation, we’re throwing pipin’ hot honest-tea on the realities of practice ownership.

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: https://www.headheartbiztherapy.com/burntout
