HEALING FAMILY TRAUMA
IS WITHIN REACH
Did you know...
Over their lifetimes, our ancestors experienced many things, both positive and negative (think traumatic). The things they did not process and integrate became "normal" beliefs, behaviors, and patterns within the family. Those "normal" beliefs, behaviors, and patterns get passed down through the DNA and we live by many of them on a subconscious level. Did you also know that even when you reject a family member (never speak of them, pretend they do not exist), you can still unconsciously and energetically repeat their patterns and sometimes crimes? Did you know sometimes the past sneaks up on you and out of nowhere you go into a panic attack which is so decontextualized you have no idea why you are having this reaction?
Tired of Feeling Like....
You're not enough. You can't shake the anxiety or depression and feel like you have no reason to feel this way? You don't understand why in every generation, someone loses a child. You have noticed in each generation there are affairs or a spouse/partner running off and abandoning the family. Maybe you notice this on your partner's side as well. You are the only one who notices the addiction of some type (drugs, alcohol, sex, food) runs through multiple family members and generations. You are the only one who FEELS all the things in the family? The one who intuitively knows when something is going to happen?
Have you wondered...
Why you have this feeling or keep hearing certain phrases in your head that make no sense? Phrases like, 'I'm not enough.' 'I'm not worthy.' 'I'll lose everything.' ' I'll let someone down & it will be my fault.' 'I'll hurt or kill someone.' 'I'll be destroyed.' Perhaps they belong to someone else, someone long gone.
Have you wondered why you get triggered over the smallest things when there "should not" be a reason for it? Could this be linked to a childhood or birth trauma or belong to a parent or grandparent? Did you unconsciously take this on to heal or help them? Why there is a panic attack every time you....cross a bridge, go near a large body of water, are around certain people in or in certain situations?
Have you ever wondered what else your genealogical and military research documents and stories contain that is not obvious through the records? Did you know those records contains a lot more clues about your family triumphs and traumas than you realize?
Are you ready to explore these things and find answers and closure?
It’s Time To Heal the Past
With one-on-one guidance, you've found a safe place to dig deep and nurture your inner self while healing your ancestral lineage.
INTRODUCING TWO WAYS TO HEAL ANCESTRAL TRAUMA...
FACILITATION SESSIONS & GENOGRAM SESSIONS
CONNECT WITH YOUR PAST, KNOWN & UNKNOWN.
Explore your personal & family history to discover what has been hidden, denied, rejected, pushed aside, or forgotten. These things may be causing you pain on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level or creating repeated toxic patterns in your life and that of your children and grandchildren.
Learn how to disconnect from the noise around you and tune in to what's happening in your mind, body, and soul as a result of your family's (hidden) trauma. I will help you:
- Ask questions that help you discover more in your genealogical records & family stories.
- Energetically assist the processing & integration of discoveries.
- Help you map out what was hidden, what has shown up as toxic repeating patterns, beliefs, or behaviors in your lineage, so it can be healed & released.
It’s time to nurture & heal yourself like never before.
Which session is best for me?
A facilitation session is a time for us to explore whatever is coming up for you. This may be an exploration and energy healing of beliefs, behaviors, or patterns in the family. Perhaps there are specific things you discovered in your research or life you want to discuss and have some energetic healing to help release. Looking for a different perspective on your research or family patterns? I have a gift of seeing what others cannot, what is hidden, or what others may not be able to see on their own. I can help you piece together the puzzle that is your life and family and help you release the heavy and energetic, sometimes toxic, past so you may create an even more abundant and joyful life.
Sometimes clients choose to, or need to go deeper, into the family history to heal. In those cases, a Genogram session will be suggested so we can map out the family and have a completely different look at what is happening.
Explore Your Family's Past
Each session begins with a brief discussion about what you wish to explore. This might include questions about your family history, beliefs, behaviors, and pattern that were passed down, or family trauma.
Go Deeper With Questions & Energy Healing
After our discussion, using questions, family mapping tools, and my spiritual gifts, we move deeper into those areas. In each session we do some energy healing and releasing.
A replay of our zoom meeting. Energy healing work through the session. Suggestions and guidance on further processing of what we discover and integration. And very likely, more questions will form to which you will want to discover answers.
A genogram is a tool that looks similar to a family tree. Using colored symbols, we identify patterns across the generations. Through questions and my energetic gifts, I help you see what's been hidden that may be holding you back.
Genograms helped me identify where I was living pieces of my grandparent's World War II story and the aftermath, with my late Dutch husband. Once I identified these patterns, I began doing my deep healing work to release this for myself and my entire lineage. Doing this changed my life in positive ways. I became freer, more abundant, happier, and able to help others change their lives using this tool.
Explore Your Family's Past
We begin with a three (3) generation family tree (GEDCOM) and start mapping relationship,s patterns, and traumas. Through this process I ask a lot of questions and we also add in some energy healing to release old pains, wounds, and traumas.
What about your family makes you curious? Are you interested in exploring your family patterns just to see what is there?
Do you have specific questions about family patterns you want to explore in more depth? Are there things that are holding you back in life that a genogram may be able to explain?
Go Deeper With Themes
Then we look at themes like: birth traumas, pregnancy or child loss, relationship breaks, war deaths, addictions, migration and immigration patterns, family secrets, occupations, education, jobs, sexual issues, mental health issues, illnesses and more. We will explore how these themes shaped your family and who you are in this moment. It may answer the question, 'Why am I the way I am?'

For the Genogram Session
Each client must provide a 3-4 generation Gedcom exported with specific requirements. This Gedcom is uploaded into my software for us to use during our live session.
I will also give you a list of questions to answer and email back to me with the Gedcom.
All sessions run 90 minutes and are confidential.
Please note before you select a package below: If you currently do not have a genealogy database (you do not do genealogical research), I can create a basic 3-5 generation family tree for you. This requires extra time and an additional fee. Please email me at [email protected] to discuss.

What People Are Saying
"I stumbled across Jennifer quite serendipitously while scrolling through Facebook and my life has never been the same since. Her unique outlook and transparency connected with me immediately. After watching just one presentation, I knew I needed to work with her. We've been working together 1:1 for a few months now and not only have I grown as a person, my bookshelf has grown too! The resources she shares and recommends are priceless, and I've learned so much about who I am and where I'm going and what I'm here to do thanks to working with Jennifer. I highly recommend her; not just as a genealogist, but as a mentor/coach/etc.
"Your work is appreciated very much. You have so much strength and resilience and I admire that. I have more compassion and empathy for others because of your story. You are the best mentor anyone could ask for and I am grateful to have found you."
I’m a spiritual coach and an Intuitive healer specializing in inherited & war trauma, and personal & ancestral healing. I’ve been on a conscious personal healing journey for a more than a decade. My journey began over 25 years ago while researching & writing about my family & military history. My military ancestors helped me dive deeper into my personal & ancestral trauma to heal.
Discovering the history of our families allows for family patterns, inherited trauma, & secrets to rise. This provides an opportunity to take a deeper look at our research to allow for healing & closure.
By 2015 my healing journey & military work allowed me to travel in Europe & create a life both there & in Chicago. I became embedded in Dutch society, life, relationships, healthcare, politics, culture, got a deep dive into grief when I became a caregiver to someone I was married to in the Netherlands. All of that gave me a unique perspective on our world & the layers of trauma we each carry, no matter where we live.
I visited battlefields & burial sites, religious & cultural sites, heard family & war stories, some of which brought me to my knees in grief as I channeled the people telling the stories. I understand context that many people do not. This makes me unique in the way I can help clients heal on both sides of the ocean to explore their personal & ancestral family patterns & war trauma. I have studied & understand genealogy & military records, & what information, secrets, patterns, inherited trauma, feelings, & emotions they may share.
Each experience I had in Europe gave me awareness & puzzle pieces for my healing & the healing of our ancestors & the collective. Puzzle pieces & awareness I can now share with you.
For more than a decade I have studied ancestral lineage healing, energy healing modalities, inherited trauma, PTSD, grief & loss, caregiving, & spiritual modalities. I have also taken a deep dive into my personal and ancestral healing.
I look forward to working with you to heal yourself and your ancestors. We are all connected no matter where we live, what our culture is, what our trauma has been….when one heals, we all heal.
