Below are a handful of resources I have referenced over the years. These useful guides have taught me valuable lessons which I now incorporate in my own work. I hope they provide inspiration and cultivate new insights for you.

Our Less Stress More Ease E-Journal is a great starting point for building Self Care and Resilience in the workplace. It’s a fantastic resource full of hands-on exercises and tools we’ve compiled over the past ten years working with clients. It is organized into four sections: Self Care, Awareness, Boundaries, and Resilience.


Quick Tips is our free monthly mailing for our clients. It’s geared towards supporting professionals with quick and easy tools that support self-care, boundaries, and resilience in the workplace.
