With Jen's guidance and support, I have made huge strides in managing my depression and anxiety and in addressing triggers and stressors that I have wrestled with for years. Jen has empowered and enabled me to embrace the process of self-awareness and healing and to learn from my feelings rather than be controlled by them. Jen is remarkably perceptive, and her compassion and investment in me creates a comfortable, stress-free space.

When I look back over my time with Jen and Claiming My Voice, I see subtle yet amazing shifts in myself.  I came into CMV with very clear beliefs of who I was and was not, what I could and could not do,  where I could and could not change.  Mostly, my focus was on the negatives.  Jen has helped me see that realities attach to beliefs not people.  By exploring my belief patterns, she’s helped open doors, windows and skylights onto new ways of viewing the world and claiming my rightful place and voice in it.  I have a lot more curiosity about the future rather than my default position of fear and defensiveness.  And, the combination of group and individual work is so synergistic.  I have a group of women who act as my mirror, my teacher, my listener.  I know I’ll have Jen and these ladies in my life for a long time to come (maybe forever?!), and that is immensely comforting.  I highly recommend Jen and her CMV program.

For me, CMV means participating in a process in which am learning how to give and receive support, acceptance, and at times uncomfortable (but always helpful/productive) feedback. In this group, I experience unconditional support and (dare I say) love. This concept is hard for me - to believe that someone (let alone 6 other someones) could care about me - even when I say the "wrong" things and am at my lowest points. I am learning how I can get in my own way and I am realizing that the Walls I put up to protect me are doing just the opposite. I am realizing how I have become accustomed to viewing other women as a potential threat or competition versus as potential tribal sisters (Sounds corny when I say that, but it's true). My journey with this group thus far has been amazingly helpful in terms of understanding myself, embracing change, accepting myself and others, and applying what I learn/experience in group to the "outside world”.
