Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.

If you’re feeling alone, exhausted, and questioning if you can continue your work helping animals, then you’re in the right spot.

I help animal care & welfare professionals to navigate compassion-related stress and cultivate resilience.

With support and new skills, you can restore yourself and reconnect with the joys of sharing your life with animals (including your own pets, because if you live with pets with serious behavior challenges, you need help too).

Caring for yourself doesn’t have to be in conflict with caring for others. You can do good AND be well. I believe both are not only possible, but that it’s not optional.

Taking care of yourself is the foundation of doing sustainable, effective, and ethical caregiving work. You need to be well to do good for the long haul. 

Through my classes and coaching, we’ll work together so you can create a flexible balance of compassionately giving to others and doing the same for yourself. You deserve it. Your needs matter. Maybe you know this already. But will you allow yourself to go after it?

I want to be in your corner. My approach is research-based, filled with laughter, encouraging, and super practical. I can support you in building a thriving compassionate badassery practice, so your can keep caring for animals and live a life you love.

You don’t have to do this alone.

Through coaching, we’ll work together in a series of one-on-one sessions to help you navigate compassion fatigue or caregiver stress, tackle obstacles, and build resiliency. LEARN MORE.
