Transforming empathic distress (aka compassion fatigue) is absolutely possible for you and your staff.
Today’s animal welfare and veterinary medical professionals are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for animals, people, and the organizations that heal, connect, and protect them. If that’s you, it’s easy to feel like nothing you do is ever good enough. The work feels never-ending. Taking care of your own needs might seem impossible.
It’s true – the work has become more complex. But you don’t need a magic formula to be well while you do meaningful work. You do need tools and ongoing support while you practice new, life-changing skills.
Hiya, I’m Jessica.
I’m here to help you, while you help the animals. I’m an educator and a coach. Together we’ll reduce work-related stress and build resilience, so you can make an impact AND be well while you do it.
I believe that self-care, community-care, and service inherently belong together.
But that’s easier said than done. Most of us never learned how to effectively take care of ourselves or our staff in high stress, emotionally-charged work. Not to mention…
Our experience of empathic distress and workplace stressors is complex and highly personal.
This means there is no guaranteed easy solution (green smoothies and a self-care pep talk aren’t going to do it). But there are proven approaches, resources, and tools that can help.
That’s where I come in. I’ve helped thousands of people create more sustainable, satisfying careers. My approach is research-based, filled with laughter, encouraging, and practical.
I'll teach you how to practice compassionate badassery, so that you can be well while you do the work you love!
