I enjoy providing counseling for helpers such as healthcare providers, family caregivers, teachers, social workers, nurses, and other helpers & empaths.
Topics I address with my clients include:
Understanding that you may be a highly sensitive person (HSP) and/or an empath (someone who not only feels deeply but hold others' emotions in their space)
Negotiating boundaries, holding your own space
Using assertive communication
Addressing compassion fatigue/caregiver burnout
Examining situations that trigger difficult emotions & developing healthy responses
Growing beyond limiting self-beliefs, roles, and patterns
Some sensitives grew up with a family that was unsafe and they have habituated some strategies that might no longer work. Examples: putting others ahead of self, not speaking up for self. We can explore using parts work.
