Jen and Mike

Jen Donovan is a certified TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) provider, Licensed Professional Counselor, and certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner with an MS in Couples and Family Therapy. Her specialization in trauma informed care, nervous system and neurological health structure the practice and theory behind our protocol development.
Jen’s career has been in mental health with a focus on unresolved trauma/PTSD. Always looking for more effective methodologies to help clients, Jen was drawn to somatic techniques such as TRE and polyvagal theory. Her own experience with healing an autoimmune and nervous system disorder led her to focus on these practices from more than just a professional perspective, and were key pieces in her journey to health.

Mike Welch is a personal trainer, Acrofit certified instructor, and Neuromeditation level 2 certified instructor with an AAS in Exercise Science. His comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, physiology, integrative movement and energetic practices provide the spiritual and physical underpinnings of our work.
Mike shifted his career into the world of fitness after he was laid off from his high stress job in the tech industry. He pursued exercise and lifestyle changes as a remedy to his mental health challenges including PTSD, depression and anxiety. Mike found some aspects of the fitness world lacking in it’s understanding of the nervous system and subtle bodies, and began exploring meditation and spiritual practices. He has been trained as a Neuro Meditation Instructor Level 2 through the Neuro Meditation Institute.
