We’ll approach burnout in three ways...

1. Burnout as a state of being that can be transformed

Burnout can be a state of being that involves multidimensional exhaustion and a decrease in well-being. We’ll work together to understand your experience of burnout so we can learn from it and transform it. Burnout often occurs because something needs to change, and we’ll harness the challenges of burnout to fuel personal growth and professional development.

2. Burnout as a process that can be shifted

Burnout can be a process that involves the depletion of energy over time. We’ll examine how this process unfolded in your experience, and shift the momentum from exhaustion to restoration.

3. Burnout as an indicator that can point to other areas of transformation

Burnout can be an indicator that holds important information and messages about what needs to change in your life. Burnout is often a symptom of deeper personal or systemic issues and we’ll compassionately explore and address the root causes of burnout to support your long-term growth and well-being.

Each month we'll move toward...
  • Feeling stronger and more confident at work and in life
  • A sense of being grounded, centered, and in the driver’s seat of your life
  • Trusting yourself
  • Improved stress resilience
  • A healthier relationship with your work
  • Being aligned with your inner strength and wisdom
  • A feeling of compassion for yourself
  • Improved mental, emotional, and spiritual health
  • Having concrete self-care tools to use even after the mentorship has ended
  • A sense of peace, satisfaction, and alignment
