I’m so glad you’re here! I support helping professionals and pet owners who care for animals and people learn how to reduce compassion stress, take better care of themselves, and reconnect with the joy of sharing their lives with animals.

If you’re working to make things better for others, including your own pets, I want to connect you to the tools you’ll need to be well while you take on those challenges.

Your welfare and well-being matters just as much as the welfare of those you serve and love.

I believe we can do good things in the world and take care of ourselves.

Here’s the bottom line: self-care is not optional. To do our very best work as caregivers and helping professionals, we must invest in our own well-being. Taking care of ourselves is the foundation of doing sustainable, effective, and ethical work.

We need to be well to do good.


Through my classes and coaching, we’ll work together to find the healthy balance between compassionately giving to others and doing the same for yourself. You deserve it.

Two ways to work with me:


Online: My unique eight week online classes will give you the tools you need to manage the impact of compassion fatigue on your life. The goal: to learn to care for ourselves with as much skill and compassion as we care for others. I also offer affordable, private webinars for organizations and businesses as an introduction to compassion fatigue and self-care strategies. I specialize in working with animal care and welfare groups.

In Person: I offer a small number of in-person workshops for animal care organizations and businesses in New England throughout the year. My workshops focus on helping your group members to create their own Compassion Fatigue + Self Care toolkit.
