What I Do

After 45 years as a nurse and caregiver, I’ve personally experienced the paucity of self-care that stems from giving your life to helping others.

Through private coaching, speaking events, and my book, Self-care Strategies for Family Caregivers, I help emotionally and physically drained caregivers re-prioritize themselves through holistic, practical strategies to well-being, rebuilding resilience, and battling burnout so they can regain control over their lives and rediscover their authentic self.

Personalized Coaching

Through 1:1 coaching, I help overwhelmed caregivers re-discover themselves by rewriting the narrative that controls their lives. Together, we can identify opportunities for applying life-changing strategies that can transform your health and wellbeing.

Workshops and Retreats

By providing full-length keynote presentations and 18-minute TED-talk like high-powered speeches, your group will be inspired to take action by setting aside beliefs that no longer serve them and taking steps to become the best version of themselves.

Educational Resources

In my book, Self-care Strategies for Family Caregivers, you will find five arenas of life that require self-care for anyone serving as a caregiver. You will also find recommendations and tools that help you overcome the myriad obstacles of prioritizing self-care.

Paula is an excellent source of wisdom, support, and objective insight. I have learned more about myself in the 2 months we have worked together than the past 2 years combined! Paula actively listens and engages her clients through grounding exercises and thought-provoking questions. What I appreciate most is that she always ends the conversation with a call to action and follows up with a summary of the session. This encourages growth in her clients and empowers them to take a journey of self-discovery. I have appreciated my time with Paula and highly recommend others to her!
