The Killing Burnout Story
In the past few years, we realized that while the demands placed on us seemed to rise infinitely, resources to help people were harder to access. When wait times to see a psychologist or mental health professional are often 2-3 months away, it makes it very hard for people to get the support they need.
After working in hospital settings and direct patient care for over 30+ combined years, we decided that we wanted to make mental health services more approachable and easier to access. We also wanted to take the best of the strategies we’ve used over time and develop them into a system that would help people build their resilience and decrease burnout, from the core. In order to be “balanced,” a person needs more than just deep breathing and a handful of coping strategies. A resilient, healthy, successful, happy person needs to understand HOW to manage stress! We teach these skills in our Killing Burnout Membership, and know that with our system, people are able to manage the demands placed on them in a more systematic and practical way, resulting in them feeling happier, healthier, and more fulfilled.
Some of the skills we teach are how to manage time and resources more effectively, how to communicate without arguing, how to set boundaries in relationships, how to value YOURSELF, and more. We are so excited to share with you the Killing Burnout program, and look forward to helping you build a better, more resilient, and fulfilled life!
