Compassion Fatigue Is Real.
Expert Treatment for Vicarious Trauma and Burnout

You’ve heard it called Secondary Traumatic Stress (STS), Vicarious Trauma (VT) or Compassion Fatigue, but let’s call it what it is. After working with countless professionals, I have coined it “Provider Trauma.”
Provider Trauma: A collective term for the consequent symptoms a professional may have from helping others who have experienced trauma.

Clinical Supervision For New Social Workers
Unfortunately, many graduates are under-prepared to manage the impact of their work.
You need a support system to help you manage the effects of stress you may experience as you begin your work as a social worker. The supervisory relationship is critical to those new to trauma work.
I am accredited with the Minnesota Board of Social work to offer individual or group clinical supervision for Licensed Graduate Social Workers, with an emphasis on relational and trauma theory.
My professional experience includes work with survivors of domestic violence, adults with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness, in-home family therapy, blended families, couples therapy, co-parenting therapy, and children and families who have experienced trauma or attachment disruption.
