Therapy for Teachers

As a teacher, coach, or other academic professional, you might be feeling overworked, undervalued, and underpaid. 

Maybe you're frustrated with your school's administration, policies, or demands. So much is expected out of you, and therefore it's common to feel like you're never doing enough. As a result, you're probably becoming increasingly exhausted and stressed. You might realize this isn't sustainable, but you're unsure of how to set boundaries and to prioritize yourself.

When you do have free time, maybe you end up binge watching TV, doom scrolling social media, staying up late, or drinking too much alcohol, leaving you tired, guilty, and worse off. 

It might feel impossible to find enough time and energy to complete all of the grading and planning you still need to do. Compassion fatigue might be kicking in if you find that you're isolating yourself more and losing the passion you once felt for your job and your students. 

Perhaps you're questioning if this is still the career you want, but the idea of making a shift is extremely daunting.

The struggle is REAL. I get it. As a high school social worker for six years, I experienced this type of stress and burnout myself, and I’ve worked alongside and counseled numerous hard working teachers, coaches, social workers, and other academic professionals. I understand what it's like to work within a system that doesn’t value educators half as much as they should. Nevertheless, I’ve seen the growth that is possible when teachers start putting their own needs first.
