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!

Helen King is a social worker who practices in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. She not only sees clients, but is also a consultant for other therapists around both clinical and business matters (her counsel has saved me so many times I can’t even!)

In this episode, Helen and I talk about how our work is never done - no matter our age or our experience as therapists. She also shares some interesting insights she’s just discovered even after many years of doing her own work...just goes to show that we’re ALWAYS in healing mode. Get ready to dig into self-love, self-acceptance, and learning to step into one’s own power.

Let’s be friends! You can find me in the following places...
