I’m so glad you’re here! I help people who care for pets, people, and our planet learn how to take better care of themselves and 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.

My Compassion Fatigue workshops and online classes are designed to support people who work and volunteer with animals in particular.

I believe we can do good things in the world and take care of ourselves too. Here’s the bottom line: self-care is not optional. To do our very best work, 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.


Together we’ll work at finding the healthy balance between compassionately giving to others and doing the same for ourselves. 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 animal care organizations and businesses as an introduction to compassion fatigue and self-care strategies.

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.
