Hey I'm Jenny. I'll be teaching this course!


I came across the work of Dr. Eric Gentry in 2014, and my life has been forever changed. When I encountered Forward Facing, I had done all the research about trauma, but was having trouble using that knowledge to change my life. The practical application of cutting edge science Dr. Gentry offers in his Forward Facing techniques gave me the clarity and vision I needed in my own life.

I knew that Forward Facing could benefit so many more people if we could make it accessible to the general public beyond clinicians. And that has been my mission ever since.

I am excited to teach you everything I've learned about weaving Forward-Facing skills into peer-to-peer expert companionship.

You can "get to know me" a little bit better on this podcast episode where I share some of my story.

Isn't trauma treatment something only therapists can do?

Forward Facing coaches don't provide treatment. We come alongside our clients as an expert companion, providing the education, structure, and support they need to enhance their lives. Forward Facing uses evidence-based techniques in a peer-to-peer format. So yes, trauma treatment is something only therapists can do, but trauma recovery is something we can help facilitate in partnership with clients.
