So many of us are caregivers. So many of us overfunction (go beyond our capacity) as caregivers. And for many of us, particularly those who are BIPOC, femme, queer, women, etc--we are expected to care for the world, and to clean up the messes of others. Sometimes, it's easier to care for others than to care for yourself. In addition, caregiving can be a trauma response in itself. ▵ Through exploring these dynamics and the boundaries we need to stay healthy, we can vow not to burn out.

Hannah Green (she/her)

Licensed Professional Counselor

MA, LPC

I am passionate about supporting folks on the front lines- those doing the hard work of caring for others in non-profits, schools, churches, and agencies. This work takes a toll, and sometimes as helpers, we're not the best at seeking help for ourselves. If you're experiencing deep tiredness, hopelessness, dread, cynicism, and a sense of futility in your work, it might be time to talk.

Creating a space for clients to freely explore and take time completely for themselves in art making provides a break from attending to the needs of others.

Professional Counselor Associate

MA: Mental Health Counseling - Specialization in Addictions

Caretaking is an act of love. But the yang to this beautiful yin is that sometimes you care and tend so much to others, that there’s nothing left over for yourself. This can make you feel burnt out, fatigued, drained, and possibly even resentful. That’s when caretaking can become overactive. I offer a Focused Therapy program to bring some focus back to you. You deserve to heal, to spend some energy on yourself, and to fill your own cup so you can get back into the world refreshed & renewed.

Professional Counselor Associate

MA, MFA, LMHCA, LPC Associate

Caregiving--whether in our personal or work life--can take a tremendous toll. It is a constant balancing act to negotiate our own self care and equilibrium along with the emotional expense of managing others' needs. My clients are healthcare professionals, educators, and others, as well as individuals caring for family members. They are responsible for a lot and the exhaustion can be deeply emotional as well as physical. Compassion can be one of our best qualities, but in balance.

Nicole Phelps (she/her)

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

LCSW

As a helping professional it is imperative to make time for your own mental health so that you do not become overwhelmed and unable to do the work you love. If you are lacking healthy boundaries, feel disconnected from yourself, your values, or your body, the important relationships in your life could suffer or end in conflict. I work with helping professionals in many settings who work directly with people experiencing trauma, I understand firsthand the importance of investing in yourself.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

LMFT, Holistic Coach

As a helper and healer, I've experienced compassion fatigue myself and it's a very real and overwhelming experience. My therapy and coaching services can support you in creating self-care routines and developing mindfulness skills to stay present with yourself and your emotional needs. This typically leads to boundary work as healthy boundaries are necessary to make space for your own wellbeing.

Many sex workers often burn out from the level of emotional engagement their job requires. Holding boundaries for yourself and with clients takes so much energy -- especially when you safety is at risk. It makes sense you're feeling burnt out. Let's build some skills around taking care of you and allow for space for burnout without normalizing it as a "right of passage" under capitalism.

My years of experience working at mental health agencies gave me insight into the realities of secondary traumatic stress. I understand the challenges that activists and people in the helping professions face as they attempt to maintain self-care and work towards making the world a better place at the same time. I endeavor to provide a refuge for those seeking balance and struggling with burnout.

Erin Axelrod, MA

Professional Counselor Associate

Compassion fatigue seems to threaten our idea of ourselves as givers, yet its very existence demonstrates just how much we are giving on a daily basis. I can support you in authentically engaging with yourself in a deeply compassionate way, to care for yourself and, by extension, everything you hold dear.
