How to Prevent Burnout

A 4 Step Guide for Workers and Social Change Makers Everywhere

   Watch Promo

In my work as a Registered Psychologist, I work with people who are experiencing burnout on a regular basis. I see people who are emotionally exhausted, losing hope, and feeling disconnected from the things they used to care about. I wanted to find a way to share what I know with a larger number of people, and I also wanted to be mindful of the fact that it can be hard to carve out time to focus on your mental health these days. In this mini-course, I go over 4 steps to preventing burnout. These steps are absolutely foundational to the work I do every day. It's what I share with clients in the therapy room, and it's how I manage to do the work I continue to do every day.

Through a series of short videos you can complete within an hour, you'll learn all about the signs you're burning out and how you can make sure to take those signs seriously.

I believe everyone deserves at least an hour for themselves, especially with all we give to our work, and families, and our communities. So please, give yourself that time. This world needs more people who are sustained, grounded, and connected to their aliveness. It can start here.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
Since the course is all pre-recorded, it starts as soon as you're ready! This mini-course is designed so that it can be completed within an hour (like you're attending a workshop with me :)), though you're welcome to spread it out over a longer period if you like.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for 30 days - across any and all devices you own. Even though this sounds like a long time, I know how quickly it can fly by. My suggestion is that as soon as you register, mark it in your calendar when you're going to sit down for an hour and do the course. Don't wait until you have "extra time" - trust me, that day never comes!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I definitely don't want you to be unhappy with a course you've signed up for with me! In order to help prevent this, I've done as much as I can to be transparent about what's included in this mini-course so that there aren't any surprises once you sign up. I also encourage people who don't already know me to have a listen to some of the podcast interviews I've recorded over the years or read articles I've written in order to get a sense of my style and my take on boundaries in order to make sure that we're a good match. I want you to be happy with the course and to feel like this is a full body yes! All that said, I'm unable to offer refunds once you have signed up, so please make sure you're clear on what's included and ask me any questions if you have them.
Is This Therapy?
This mini-course is a non-interactive educational experience, which means it's not the same as therapy. It's not a substitute for therapy. If you find that the material brings up strong feelings or is connected with unprocessed trauma, I strongly encourage you to follow up with a therapist in your area. You may be able to find one through www.psychologytoday.com or www.therapyden.com (US only). At this time, I'm currently unavailable for new clients.
