Is this you..?
You are a compassionate person,
empathic and considerate.
You care deeply for the people
in your work or in your life
and want to give them the best care.
Your care is a genuine strength.
Except right now it feels like a burden.
Your caring and empathy have become helper fatigue, but you have no idea what to do about it.
Jae Carter, PhD
I am the founder of Caring By Connection™ and
a health psychologist. For over 20 years I have helped individuals and families adjust to mental health and medical conditions. I have firsthand experience with compassion fatigue both professionally and personally. I have worked in psychology clinics, assisted living, long-term care facilities, and hospitals such as UT Medical Branch and UT Southwestern. I was also the primary caregiver for my late husband with dementia.
I now use my personal experience and professional knowledge of neuroscience to help you making lasting changes to your chronic stress response. My presentations for healthcare professionals and caregivers
teach the healing power of compassion. Attend an upcoming workshop to help reduce stress, set healthy boundaries, and enjoy genuine caring relationships at work and at home.
