First responders, Thank you for what you do!

WE NEED YOU.

And, we need you to be well and healthy. 

Are you or your team members feeling stressed, rundown, and struggling with anxiety? Are you seeing or feeling mental health challenges personally or within your team?

 

Many professionals in these "helping professions" begin to feel

  • Overwhelmed

  • Stressed

  • Depressed

  • Burned Out

  • Not able to relax during downtime

These are signs that you or your team members need to take care of themselves.

Healthcare Workers
Firefighters are more likely to die of suicide than they are in the line of active duty.
-Ruderman Family Foundation
40%-85% of "helping professionals" develop vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue and/or high rates of traumatic symptoms.

-Francoise Mathieu (2012)

I'd venture to guess all of you are really good at what you do.

You love your job and serving others in your community.

And maybe you're even a little bit addicted to the fast pace? 

Or thrive on feeling needed by others?

(This is normal and something I've experienced)

But no matter how much you care and how good you are at it, supporting others as a career can take its toll if you don't take care of yourself.

THIS IS NOT MY EMERGENCY

There is a saying, “This is not my emergency.” This statement keeps responders present to what is happening in the moment and able to take action with a cool and clear head. Once the emergency is over however, the body continues to experience and hold onto the event. This is known as secondary trauma, something first responders need to attend to for physical, mental and emotional health. It may not be obvious something is off initally, but over time you may feel anxiety, overwhelm, fatigue, or anger quickly. Your body is sending you the signal that something needs to be addressed.

HOW I CAN HELP
 

My classes and one-on-one sessions utilize mindful movement, breath and quieting the mind to release trauma. The intention of this work is to keep you and your teams physically, mentally and emotionally healthy to feel your best and keep doing the work that is so important to all of us. 

 

I help people build resilience. That means shifting from feeling overwhelmed by thoughts, feelings and unrecognized trauma to feeling empowered, a sense of ease, and centered within themselves.

Specific benefits to an individual include:

  • Feel centered and alert before and after responding to a call

  • Decrease anxiety and feel more ease

  • Increase energy and motivation at work and home

  • Alleviate depression and feel joy in your day

  • Stay strong, energized and grounded

  • Provide compassion to those who they serve

  • Reach out for help and access needed resources more efficiently and effectively

  • Work through the strong emotions that come from being a responder in healthy ways (not relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as drugs and alcohol)

 

My therapeutic yoga practice serves many professions including  firefighter, nurse, corrections, police officer, emergency dispatch, therapist, teachers, and advocates among many others who help people in crisis or provide longer term support in challenging times.
