On The Mend is an all-female holistic healing retreat that emphasizes self-love, compassion and various modalities to support those who are recovering from trauma.

As heart and body healers, we curate intentional space for survivors of trauma to rediscover what brings them “back home”–in mind, heart and body.

Hi We’re Britt & Em!

We challenge the idea that one size fits all when it comes to healing. We’ve seen it in relation to our own pain, and extensively in our work: Brittany as a rape survivor and national speaker (on sexual assault prevention & recovery, mental health, resilience, and wellness), and a background working in trauma centers in conflict countries and at home, and Emily as a a survivor of trauma (physical, psychological, emotional), and a Fascial Stretch Therapist, a Yoga Teacher with a certification in Trauma Informed Yoga, and a Renew Movement Coach.

Most importantly, twenty years of friendship and a handful of painful life experiences later, we learned that healing is far easier done when walking hand-in-hand. Bottom line, compassion (for self and others) thrives in community.

So we created just that. A supported place where women can safely and bravely move inward in order to find acceptance, love and hope for a brighter future.
