Create a Social Work Practice that Honours Your Sensitivity

Virtual ​Resources & Courses
for Highly Sensitive Social Workers 

Have you ever wondered if you're "too sensitive" for Social Work?

You may have been told that you care too much,

or feel too deeply, to make it as a Social Worker.

Perhaps you've been told to "toughen up"

or develop a "thicker skin". 

If that sounds like you, you're in the right place!

Being a deep-feeler in a fast-paced field that focuses

on alleviating the suffering of the most marginalized in our society

can be overwhelming and exhausting.

AND the field of Social Work needs deep-feeling,

empathetic, and intuitive people, like you!

I help sensitive, deep-feeling Social Workers honour their emotional & energetic limits so that they can show up fully for their clients without abandoning themselves.


After a long day of social working,
do you find it hard to leave work at work?

Maybe you find that you spend your downtime ruminating

about the day or worrying about your work to-do list?


Perhaps you feel too drained at the end of the day

to even think about your own needs?

My free guided meditation for transitioning from

work to home life might be just what you need!
