Your job is not just a job…

As a compassionate helper, you put your whole heart and soul into your profession. You invest in the lives of your clients, patients and students from the moment the sun rises, and long after the workday ends. Your colleagues look up to you as a warm and trusted helping professional.

The truth is your work is a courageous calling to elevate others through learning or to alleviate suffering through service. The challenges are great, but the purpose is greater. To do good in the world is a guiding value in your work and life.

You’re the calm anchor in your home. You’re the go-to person when the family needs someone who will listen, advocate, and act. You have an innate ability to help your loved ones feel better.

Yet, there’s a price…

You feel beyond exhausted. (More than you’d ever admit.)

You’re on autopilot, forgetting which tasks you did, the people you texted, and if you even shampooed your hair this morning.

Your job isn’t bringing as much joy as it used to. You feel less empathy for your clients and students. You’re bogged down with bureaucracy, paperwork, and audits. When did being a helper require so many meetings?

Despite being surrounded by people, you feel utterly alone. You see everyone else keeping it together and ‘toughing it out.’ You are isolated and trapped in your feelings, but you also can’t talk about them either. You’re not supposed to ask for help. Just put on a smile and keep moving, right?

Sometimes you aren’t sure who you are anymore. By saying yes to everything, the things that truly matter to you — your health, family, and joy — are slipping away.

As night approaches, and you’re still thinking about work and doing notes, you can’t think of one single thing you did just for yourself.

I’m ready to feel better!

It’s all snuck up on you. Now you’re…

  • Exhausted by 2 pm with hours of work to go

  • Feeling bloated, fatigued, and uncomfortable in your body

  • Overwhelmed with your workload and family responsibilities

  • Pretending nothing is wrong, but secretly drowning in stress

  • Snapping at colleagues or students for no reason

  • Missing quality time with those most important to you

  • Worried about your health and weight

  • Irritable, on edge, and frazzled

  • Feeling unworthy or undeserving of rest and days off

  • Frustrated you can’t get out of this stress cycle on your own

  • Down on yourself for not making the changes you need to

  • Questioning your ability to last in your career if this pace continues

You must solve this before…

  • Your children grow up before your eyes without memories of you.
  • You develop chronic, irreversible health issues, such as diabetes or heart disease.
  • Your friends stop including you in plans because you’re always ‘too busy’ or ‘too tired’ to join their activities.

  • You’re forced to retire early or change careers because the burnout overtakes you.

How Does Coaching Work?

Stress is an inevitable aspect of life – especially as a helper – but how you respond to stress makes all the difference in your relationships, workplace dynamics, habits, and outlook on life.

First, you’ll complete The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment. This research-backed tool measures your stress levels and how you respond to stress. Once we identify and measure your responses we are able to better develop and implement a SMART plan specific to your needs.

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) results show where you’re at now and where you can respond differently to life’s challenges. Small changes in your stress response create an opportunity for more connection, engagement, and well being, not to mention better relationships with clients, coworkers, and family.

We administer this tool at the start of coaching and regular intervals throughout to ensure you receive tangible guidance on achieving your goals.

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is a powerful research-based measuring stick that gauges your progress, allowing us to course-correct and reassess the path as needed.

I want to change how I relate to stress.

After our work together, many of my clients report:

  • More energy for themselves, their career, and their family. Fatigue is no longer an everyday struggle.

  • Present, engaged, and intentional with their time and commitments. Their day isn’t guided by autopilot.

  • Greater calm and in control of their emotions. They respond proactively to stress, as opposed to reactively.

  • Better problem solvers. They see problems as opportunities and feel less discouraged by setbacks.

  • Improved physical health and mental wellbeing. With the energy to prioritize self-care, they can be of service to others.

  • More comfortable being vulnerable and receiving help from others.

  • Personal freedom and optimism. They have a clear vision of how to balance work and life responsibility.

  • Trusting their inner guidance and clarity on how to achieve their goals and stay on track long term.

  • Evolution into their highest self with more clarity, consciousness, and self-awareness.

  • Nourishment of mind, body, and soul with self-care practices.

Build Resilience with These 10 Tips for a Better Life

Want to bounce back from hard times and setbacks so you can better adapt to challenges?

Here’s how-get your resilience tip guide to help you manage difficult experiences with greater ease and for a better life.

Build Resilience Now

If you feel guilty taking time for yourself, consider this:

1. The world needs you. (As do your coworkers, family, and friends.)

There is no shortage of suffering in our world. You need to be rested and resourced to do your best work.

You can’t change the world if you’re too tired to get out of bed, can’t find your socks, and you’re running on empty.

2. Toughing it out will burn you out.

You’re encouraged to ignore your own needs and put your self-care last. Over the years, this threatens your effectiveness as a helper and leads to burn out.

Despite your fears, it is possible to take care of yourself AND others. Being in service does not mean you must sacrifice your health, your family, and your free time to make a difference.

3. Coaching is different.

Stop beating yourself up about diets you’ve failed, the unused running shoes, or the missed family outings.

You’re not a failure. Nor incapable of sticking to a plan. You didn’t have the right mix of accountability and research-backed tools to get you where you wanted to be. (That’s where I come in.) As your coach, I will celebrate your successes, yell “heck yes!” with each new win, and help you problem-solve the stuck points that inevitably arise with any behavior change. You don’t have to do this alone anymore.

Discover how powerful you truly are!

I’m so excited to work with you.
