This area of my private practice is dedicated to supporting the individuals who spend their day-to-day supporting others. Regardless the type, there are challenges common to all those who are caregivers. Perhaps you’ve noticed yourself shutting down or distancing yourself from the outside world in an attempt to rest or recharge. You may find it difficult to avoid absorbing the emotions of those around you. You could be experiencing vicarious trauma or be pushing through empathy exhaustion. Perhaps you are ignoring all the signs of fatigue and forcing yourself far beyond your breaking point. Or, you may simply be curious about your reasons for choosing your career in the first place, as it feels oddly similar to your romantic or familial life.
If this pertains to you in any way or you simply feel the need for a need of an compassionate, empathic and safe environment to safely explore your vulnerabilities, consider this a warm invitation to do so. (And be assured that I, too, am doing this work and feel more than prepared to hold space for you.)
I look forward to possibly working with you.-J.
