Welcome back to Therapy Chat! This week I’m joined by a fellow trauma therapist who is also a colleague and friend, Dr. Jenny Hughes.

In our conversation we explore themes of building trust through allowing vulnerability, the power of connection and co-regulation in healing, the process of metabolizing emotions, integration and healing, the transformative power of difficult times, grief, vicarious trauma and vicarious resilience, hope, finding supportive spaces, the beauty and joy of trauma work, what happens in Jenny’s Brave Trauma Therapist Collective, and so much more.

Dr. Jenny Hughes is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the treatment of trauma

and PTSD. As a clinician, she practices EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure therapy. Jenny has published a workbook designed for clients to use on their own or with their therapist called the PTSD Recovery Workbook.
