Resiliency and Well-being Coaching

Do you find it challenging to make healthy lifestyle choices and maintain self-care practices? Do you wish you could deal more effectively with stress so that you could achieve your goals or realize your dreams?

Do you dread going to work each day because you feel emotionally exhausted and ineffective? Are you worried about why you no longer feel compassion for your patients? If so, you may be experiencing burnout or compassion fatigue.

I can help. We all experience stress in our lives.  It’s not the stress that’s a problem—it’s the way we respond that causes health problems or prevents us from achieving our goals.

As your coach, I support you as you identify strategies to build resilience. Resilience is the ability to rebound from stressors.  Since it’s a process, not a character trait, you can increase your resilience and protect yourself from the harmful impact of stress.

As you develop skills, learn to master stress, and build resilience, you also experience a sense of empowerment and well-being.  As you tap into your own wisdom and shift your perspective, you find opportunities where you once saw obstacles. As you release limiting beliefs, you move forward, realize your dreams and create the life you desire.

Using a client-directed approach, I offer a wide-variety of tools and resources. Examples of tools include mindfulness techniques, breath work, guided imagery, the enneagram, drawing and/or writing exercises, affirmations, re-framing, meditation, storytelling, nonviolent communication, feng shui, ritual, and many more.

I also bring extensive knowledge about a wide variety of other resources.  Examples include integrative modalities and healing practitioners who can help you meet your goals, including acupuncture, art classes and programs, energy work, massage therapy, bodywork, sound and movement therapy, sand tray work, qi gong, homeopathy, cranio-sacral therapy, dreamwork, heartmath, personal training, nutritional consultation, and many others.

Burnout and compassion fatigue are increasing at alarming rates among health care providers. Burnout involves a sense of depersonalization, emotional exhaustion, and a sense that you are not accomplishing anything. As a result, you become less effective at work. Various studies estimate that anywhere from 30-80% of physicians and nurses experience symptoms of burnout. And more importantly, data also shows that burnout can lead to less-than-optimal patient care—which puts health care providers at risk for being sued or reported to their licensing boards.

Compassion fatigue can lead to the same result as it involves a gradual lessening of your ability to feel compassion for your patients. You may also experience stress and anxiety, feel hopeless, and have trouble concentrating, as well as sleeping. Often, providers question their own competency and suffer from a negative attitude or perspective.

The good news is that I can help you recover from both burnout and compassion fatigue.
