Compassion Fatigue

Local Experts in Compassion Fatigue

As a clinician who has worked with incarcerated individuals I understand first hand the complexities of compassion fatigue. As care givers we often struggle with meeting our clients where they are at. We often continue to see them struggle, which is often frustrating; however we can plant seeds and continue to assist our clients with moving forward. We need to focus on our clients strengths!

You\'ve taken care of others for a long time. It\'s time to focus on you.

Did you know that 'burn-out' is included in the World Health Organization's International Classification of Diseases? It's very real and has significant affects on your health and well-being. I believe that your well-being and sustainability is worth the investment.

Working in one of the helping professions can be deeply meaningful and life giving. It also can lead to compassion fatigue. I have considerable experience working with individuals in the health care and mental health care fields who are facing the challenges of finding their way back to balance and to connection with why they entered their professions in the first place.

I specialize in Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma. I am a Certified Compassion Fatigued Professional (CCFP). If you are a professional helper beginning to feel burnt out or traumatized by your work, this is a normal reaction that occurs to professional helpers. You can grow and cope with it! You owe it to yourself, family, friends, and clients to take action.

Helping helpers brings me great joy. I support those who give of themselves by building tool kits together to guard against compassion fatigue and secondary trauma. I also help people assess when a change is needed.

I work with individuals who are experiencing work burn-out, and in particular for those working in helping professions. Some of my clients are other therapists, and I do offer clinical supervision.

I work with those who are helpers and healers who also may be needing to find ways to tend to their own hearts, minds, and bodies. Caring for others can deplete a person both physically and emotionally, and the necessity for self-compassion is paramount.

I specialize in supporting counselors, social workers, coaches and other wellness professionals who are fighting off compassion fatigue, burnout, and work-related stress and anxiety with one-on-one wellness practice management coaching.

As healthcare and mental health professionals we speak about the importance of self-care to others but often fail to follow our own advice. It’s time to make time to gather in a supportive, interactive and relaxed environment to begin the conversation about the demands of our work and the negative effects on our well-being.
