Hey I’m Jenny! I’ll be facilitating!

I like to say I’ve been facilitating groups since before I had any business doing so (seriously, I facilitated my first mental-health healing groups in my early 20’s, and I’m so glad no one has videos of them!). I’ve always had a passion for helping people develop and refine skills, and love doing so by facilitating these groups!

I came across the work of Dr. Eric Gentry in 2014, and my life has been forever changed. When I facilitating these groups I inevitably grow as much as the participants. 

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

I would be honored to be your guide as you begin your Forward-Facing journey. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me [email protected]

Participants will learn the following skills

  • How to use neuroception and interoception to self-regulate
  • How to pendulate between attention to self and other, in order to attune to our body's threat response in relational connection
  • How to apply Poly-vagal theory in real life
  • How to offer non-verbal cues of safety to others
  • How to detect micro-dissociation, and bring oneself gently back to the present.

  • I'm currently experiencing high stress levels--is this group for me?
  • If you are in crisis or are experiencing stress that is impairing your day-to-day functioning, please reach out to us so we can help you determine if the group will be a good fit for you.
  • Do you record the meetings?
  • No, what is shared is confidential, so we do not record, but all the teaching components are included as videos in the curriculum.
  • I'm interested, but I can't make the first session. Can I still come?
  • No. The first meeting is crucial.
  • What happens if I miss a session?
  • Each person is allowed one excused absence. If a person has two absences and wants to graduate, they will need to repeat the group at a latter time for a fee.
  • Is there homework?
  • Before the first session there are 2 hours of videos to watch. After the first session there's 1.5-2 hr writing assignment. That's it!
  • How is this supposed to help me parent if it's not about parenting skills?
  • If you're a parent (and most of our participants are), this group is about YOU and helping you be the person you want to be, regardless of what your children are doing. Our participants tell is consistently that FF ME completely changes the way interact with their children.
  • Is this like group therapy?
  • No, the format is closer to an AA/NA/AlAnon meeting.
