About me… 

Why the heck should you listen to me? And who the heck do I think I am telling you what to do?

First off, hey – how are you during these tough times? When did you last make time for yourself? Read a book? Take a walk?  My name is Paula and I specialize in working with people just like you – people who care deeply, are compassionate and have tough as sh*t jobs!

And, as for why you should listen to me over the countless other voices in the resilience world, let me give you the short answer (because we are all busy).

I have 20+ years in health and wellness, a master’s degree in exercise physiology, certified wellness coach & mindfulness teacher, yoga teacher, clinical hypnotherapist, and  a hospital chaplain (in the Buddhist tradition)

I have worked with hundreds of caregivers (just like you) and helped them go from struggling to find joy and purpose in their work and life to feeling a renewed sense of purpose for their work and looking forward to each day in as little as one month.  

The reason I do it is that I love it. I love being able to help people struggling with compassion fatigue, burnout and a general feeling of ‘meh’.  I love knowing that they can forever say buh-bye to overwhelm & anxiety. Seriously. FOREVER.

And in case you still have some nagging doubts, here are a few of my collection of love notes:
