The responsibility to give animals the best care in an increasingly understaffed and overwhelmed field is a burden too heavy to carry. That’s why veterinarians and animal workers are experiencing alarming rates of depression, anxiety, attrition, burnout, and suicide.
This 6-month group coaching program is designed for women veterinarians who want to rewrite their narrative on responsibility, self-love, and who they are beyond animal care. With an empathetic community by your side, you’ll learn cognitive techniques to face the challenges unique to your role, relieve compassion fatigue, and find your joy.
