Even though I had wanted to be a veterinarian since I was 7-years old, after 12 years in practice, I was at the point I didn't know if I could stand another day in the office. I was frustrated, tired and worn out by the constant stresses of practice that included staffing headaches, client turnover, and financial strains. On top of it all, the stresses at work was having a profoundly negative influence on my personal life. I felt disjointed and disconnected from those I most care about.
The pain of burnout was so bad that I started abusing alcohol and drugs in an effort to numb myself so I could get through another day. I even contemplated suicide before I finally woke up and realized the practice of veterinary medicine didn't have to be so hard and unrewarding. In fact, life itself didn't need to be nearly so hard. It was at that point I finally sought help.
Now, some 20 years later, I specialize in working with Burned Out Baby Boomers with special emphasis on working with healthcare professionals who are in some stage of overwhelm or burnout in their professional practices. I've dedicated my life to helping others on the verge of burnout to rekindle their passion and play for life.
