Jennifer Whitacre is an empowerment strategist and trauma specialist who works with clients who are ready to create empowerment through self-awareness. Having spent many years spinning her own wheels, Jennifer is all too familiar with how jagged and knotted it feels inside when you feel lost, overwhelmed, and stuck when all you want is to have enough energy and to know what to do. Like a lot of people, she has experienced loneliness in a room full of people, mistrust among family and friends, disconnection from herself, and despair that sent her to the brink of a mental health crisis.
Armed with a lifetime of experience and over 12 years of education in healing, Jennifer has learned how to get beneath the story of why people do what they do and understand where they're coming from. Discovering her own intuition and the power of living by her core values, she has learned a number of ways to raise her self-awareness. She now approaches life more confidently, more empowered, more decisive, and more trusting of her own instincts. It has made a world of difference in her life which is why she so badly wants that for you!
Jennifer is a firm believer in And Consciousness which is not about avoiding or denying extremes; but about expanding one’s own consciousness to make room for the acceptance of both. It’s the acceptance of conflicting truths that exist simultaneously. It’s the acceptance of duality, paradox, contradictions, and opposing extremes that simultaneously exist and thrive in our world. And Consciousness leads to curiosity, understanding, and compassion, which happen to be the antidotes to shame, fear, and judgment. It is Jennifer’s deepest hope the name of her show, Yes, And..., will serve as a gentle reminder of these concepts, all of which guide us along our path of personal growth toward self-actualization.
Truly understand yourself by becoming aware of your own pattern of thoughts and behaviors, and discover the seeds that created those patterns in the first place. Get to the root of the issue so you can gain a new awareness of how your own patterns of thought, behavior, emotion, and perception are holding you back in life so you can finally trust yourself and feel empowered and confident in your own decisions. Don’t miss an episode of the Yes, And… Podcast with Jennifer Whitacre and begin to be more self-aware, challenge conventional thinking, and look at things from different angles.

Authentic, natural, and powerful

Jennifer Whitacre has a natural ability to put her guests at ease or make them uncomfortable depending on what it takes to get to the heart of their story. If you are a guest, she will help you to learn things about yourself that you either didn’t know or weren’t willing to admit. Because of dealing with her own issues she has a better sense of how to get her guests to reveal their truth so that her listeners can be inspired, motivated, and challenged to address their own personal deamons.
