If you’re looking for an energizing speaker who slays audiences with presentations on how to thrive in trauma-exposed professions, I’m your woman. I can customize a talk or program to meet the needs of the organizers, but here’s a glance at the topics I speak about:

  • Compassionate Badassery: Your Heart is Your Superpower
  • No Mud No Lotus: Choosing the Challenge
  • Pump the Brakes: What to Do When You’re Spinning Out on Stress
  • Compassion Fatigue 101: The Foundations
  • From Self-Care to We-Care: Organizational Strategies for Compassion Resilience

All of my Workshops Provide
Evidence-based Practices that Support Animal welfare professionals in their High Stress, Trauma Exposed Work

Full Day Workshop (6 hours) + Follow Up Coaching for Leadership

Compassion Fatigue is the natural consequence of stress resulting from caring for and helping traumatized or suffering people or animals. It’s an occupational hazard for professionals and volunteers, but there are proven strategies to help us address this unique stress. My foundation workshops will give you and your staff the tools to succeed in this challenging work.

Workshops identify what compassion fatigue is, its symptoms, and contributing factors. We examine stress management and self care, including practical on-the-job techniques.

Participants will have the opportunity to practice stress management techniques, take a self assessment, and connect with the positive aspects of their work. 

$3000 + travel expenses (full day workshop, one hour follow up coaching call)

Please note: I offer a limited number of in-person talks and workshops, typically around New England. If you’re more than 2 hours outside of Portland, Maine, you may want to check out my online program Compassion in Balance!
