Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world's greatest need. -Frederick Buechner
So many nurses and health care professionals get to a certain point in their career where all of a sudden they realize how stressed, exhausted and unsatisfied they are, and they wonder if they are in the right place.
Maybe you’ve missed a shift because of feeling overwhelmed, made a mistake because your brain is frazzled, your usual strategies for managing the stress have stopped working. Are your days off are spent just recovering and preparing for your next shift instead of really living your life and enjoying relationships?
I can help you continue to feel inspired and fulfilled in the work you do, while also having a satisfying life outside of work.
Doing this kind of work is important to me because I believe that, as a nurse or health care professional, your ability to restore life, health and vitality to people is absolutely essential in this world. We need you! And in order to continue doing this very important work, you need to have that same sense of vitality in your own life.
The way I support nurses in living inspired and satisfying lives is twofold: identifying strategies that work with your nervous system to manage all you see and experience on your shifts, and, getting at the root of what is going on so you aren’t spending so much time, money and energy just “killing the pain.”
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Yoga Teacher, and have been in the counseling field for about 11 years. I use mindfulness, attention to the body and nervous system, therapeutic conversation and a technique called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help clients live with more joy and less stress.
