From the Instructor

“None of us likes to feel or experience shame so we often compartmentalize it or shove way down deep. I get it, I’ve done the same thing. It’s hard and uncomfortable stuff. But when we shove shame way down, it owns us and drives our behavior in very unhelpful ways, often in direct contradiction to our values. In this Daring Greatly workshop, join me as we learn about the following:

  • Knowing your Values

  • Understanding the components of trust

  • Vulnerability

  • Empathy and Self-Compassion

  • Shame and how we protect ourselves

  • Triggers for shame

  • Building Resilience.”

Meet the Instructor

Jennifer is a mental health therapist with over 20 years of experience helping clients move through their crisis and challenges and life adjustments. She trained and became certified as a Daring Way Facilitator, in the work of Brene Brown, in 2017. She is also specially trained in exposure and response prevention, a highly evidenced based treatment for OCD and anxiety disorders. Her current passion is working towards her certification as an Emotion Focused Therapist, which she is bringing to individuals, couples and families.

Much to her family’s delight and chagrin, she continues to do her own vulnerability work. The pain of carrying resentments became greater than her fear of just speaking her truth. While it is scary, it is also very freeing.

She lives in Wisconsin with her husband of 23 years. She has two adult sons who are off on their own life journeys. And, of course, she has one dog and 2 cats. Her happy places include being in the kitchen, cooking up a storm, being on the water, training her dog and sometimes photography. She gets fired up about all things social justice!


‘‘It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”                                             – Theodore Roosevelt
