Karin Sawyer

Burnout is everywhere. Professional women/working moms, women between jobs, teachers, students, caregivers - all tell me they are chronically tired, overwhelmed and discouraged. I hear from them how work, relationships, and even recreation - just feel like demands on their time. They're just *done*!

My Approach

Coaching is not therapy or consulting, so the focus is not on “treating” or advising. We are companions on a journey that I’m familiar with, and my role is to listen deeply, asking questions that help you look deep inside yourself to find your own answers and strengths. I support you in creating goals that re-connect you with what fulfills you, and in choosing actions that allow you to realize them. As an ICF-credentialed professional coach, I’ve found my calling in serving women experiencing burnout – or heading that way – helping them get back to satisfaction and joy. I provide 1:1 office and phone sessions, and group series that explore causes of burnout, how to recover from it, and how to avoid it. My standard fee is $90 per 50-minute office session/60-minute telephone session, and I provide generous sliding-scale fees to make coaching accessible. Visit my website to learn more about me and my offerings, and to book a no-charge, 45-minute Pathfinding Session.

My Background

I’m familiar with these burnout stories, because I’ve lived them myself. I’ve burned out twice, in two demanding careers. I’ve lived through the physical, mental, financial and spiritual costs of burning out. I know what it's like to have nothing left for myself, and no sense of having a "life". And… I am proof that it is possible to recover from burnout and re-awaken a sense of satisfaction and joy in living from a place of alignment with what we truly want! I look forward to supporting you in overcoming burnout and living your most fulfilling life!
