Burnt Out? Stuck?
Let's get you
un-stuck & lit up again.

Being a human is hard. Being a healthcare worker is harder.  Constant stress, on-the-job trauma and a never-ending onslaught of work leads to burn-out, exhaustion and even chronic issues.

I worked in the public healthcare system as a social worker and therapist for over a decade.  I know what you are facing on a day-to-day basis to stay healthy and sane while continuing to offer care to those who look to you for help. Throw in a pandemic, high stress levels, new charting systems, staff shortages and increased care needs and burnout, compassion-fatigue, exhaustion, apathy and  disengagement begin to seep in.  

The good news is, there are highly effective tools and interventions that can used in and out of the workplace that can help you get back to feeling passionate and

lit up again.


I know you're busy and I know you need tools and interventions that take that into consideration. We'll work together to find your unique and manageable path to move you through the stuck place and allow you heal, grow and emerge into a more revitalized day to day experience.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy

Trauma is an event that overwhelms coping mechanisms due to its deeply distressing nature, resulting in ongoing negative symptoms. Trauma can result from one event, such as a car accident or assault or from ongoing  events such as childhood abuse. 

To address trauma, I use a process called Accelerated Resolution Therapy.  As noted on their website,  

"Accelerated Resolution Therapy works directly to reprogram the way in which distressing images and memories are stored in the brain so that they no longer trigger strong physical and emotional reactions."

Not sure if you are experiencing trauma symptoms?  Learn more here:


HeartMath tools are perfect for use before, during and after stressful events, but also as a way to intervene in long-term chronic stress.  HeartMath offers simple yet profound processes to address stress symptoms and increase the ability to respond to stress.

Mindfulness and SomaticTherapies

Mindfulness allows for an increased experience of the present moment, and provides skills for understanding ourselves and others. Mindfulness assists in tuning into the body, nervous system and different emotional states  to understand how they are influenced by past and current experiences.
