You know you need a change.

Help you re-evaluate your boundaries and patterns of coping that may not be helping you move towards what you want

Teach you regulation and grounding skills to help you increase your capacity to be with more “stress” and respond in a way that is aligned with your values and your body’s ability to process it

Help you to learn to recognize your nervous system responses to stress so you can complete these stress responses.

Support you in evaluating your values and what’s important to you. I will support you in finding the right ways for you to start reconnecting to these things

In our work together, I will 

Our work is going to be more than just telling you to rest or sleep more or quit your job—because while that might feel tempting to give into those rage quitting daydreams, it is often not possible or the best approach for everyone.

I won’t lie-it is hard and can feel scary to address burnout. Your nervous system and body has gotten used to going through stress cycles and being in a state of urgency, doing, going, moving, performing, producing. So to ask it to do something different-it is going to feel uncomfortable, but that does not mean it is bad/wrong/not okay. We will work to build up your ability to be able to rest, relax, have fun--sounds odd to have to relearn how to relax and even have fun, and it is necessary when we haven’t flexed that muscle in a while. Going slowly with this process allows our mind and body to adjust to it, digest it, and not get overwhelmed (which might happen if we go too quickly).
