I’m so glad you’re here! I help people and teams who care for pets, people, and our planet learn how to take better care of themselves and their staff, so they can reconnect with the joy of their work. If you’re working to make things better for others, 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.

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, we must invest in our own well-being and the welfare of the people who work in our organizations. Taking care of ourselves and our employees is the foundation of doing sustainable, effective, and ethical work.

We need to be well to do good.


Through my workshops and online classes, 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.
