Care for the Caregivers
Service providers and support-based professionals are experiencing burnout and emotional exhaustion.
We hear about maintaining a work-life balance. We know self-care is important. But when our personal and professional lives focus on giving to and supporting others, our needs can fall to the bottom of a never-ending to-do list.
I help you set boundaries, say no without feeling guilty, and prioritize yourself alongside your work caring for others.
I support organizations and management teams to enact systemic change to prioritize the needs and mental health of front-line, support, administrative, and management staff.
