Helping professions that are chronically exposed to human-induced trauma are very rewarding, yet oftentimes, exhausting and draining.
As a compassionate professional, you’re constantly pouring out empathy and care, which puts you at great risk for things like burnout, compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and secondary trauma. Intentionally practicing preventative and restorative self-care is the key to staying healthy and well long-term. I’m very passionate about supporting women leaders in these fields, and that’s why I’ve created the GoodHeart App. It’s a Professional Growth and Wellness App exclusive to these women, combining connections, community, and curated content. Helping Professionals who are expected to be the ones always available to help others, often find it difficult to ask for their own help. You put your well-being on the line every day to help others, and between the workload, the growing need, unrealistic expectations put on you, social pressure, and the seemingly never-ending urgent matters, you can be at high risk for professional burnout and compassion fatigue. In the GoodHeart App, we focus on 5 domains of self-care and wellness – Physical, Relational, Professional, Psychological, and Emotional. YOU ARE NOT ALONE and there’s power in like-minded community. I can’t wait to get to know you more.

What is the difference between Mentoring vs Counseling? And how will I know if I need to take the next step?
Mentoring is an informal relationship.
Mentoring allows someone to journey with you that has overcome some similar life situations you may be facing. Mentors give advice based on life experiences and expertise. The mentee will benefit from the relationship by choosing to follow the mentor’s path toward development. Behavior modeling and advancement guidance are a few ways in which that role is nurtured.
Counseling is a formal relationship. Counseling benefits clients by creating a trusted and safe space for healing. Licensed counselors are skilled at sitting with difficult emotions and situations. They are well versed in the process of finding relief from various forms of emotional disruption. Healing through counseling also has a range of effects in other areas of a client’s life.
Take some time to assess your mental health, responses, and behaviors. Do you have past hurts or wounds you need to overcome? Counseling may be a great place to start. Do you feel stuck and simply need tools and strategy to move forward? Mentoring may be your answer. Many clients utilize both resources simultaneously to achieve the level of wholeness and healing they are in need of. Make the decision to make the necessary changes to move forward in life!
