Episode 37: Jennifer Sterling on Healing, Intentional Impact, and Doing the Opposite
Oh, brave ones, there are no words. I am beyond thrilled for you to get your beautiful, brave ears on today’s conversation with Jennifer Sterling, holistic nutritionist and dance/movement psychotherapist. As a holistic nutritionist, dance/movement psychotherapist, and founder of The Black Girl Healing Project, Jennifer focuses on supporting black women who are living with depression.
Jennifer shares her story, from studying as a health coach (where she and I discovered each other, all those years ago!) to getting her first masters in holistic nutrition to intentionally combining her nutrition work with dance/movement psychotherapy for greater impact.
In our conversation, we talk all about...
How Jennifer is creating a holistic community for black women around mental health, nutrition, physiology, and the impact of oppression
Why when you’re feeling triggered or reactive, it’s not the time to push through your comfort zone (and what to do instead)
How doing the work herself has changed her
Why she decided to do the opposite of what our culture tells us to do and is slowing down, pulling back, and becoming more present
What happened when she decided to throw out the online marketing “shoulds” to build her own version of impact
How getting a 9-to-5 has freed her to build the community and movement that she dreams of
How to care for yourself when you’re doing big, brave, impactful work
It’s a conversation that you don’t want to miss (and one I’m utterly grateful to have been a part of)!
