Welcome to a space where your role as a caregiver is not just recognized but deeply understood. Here, we bridge the gap between the immense responsibility you shoulder and the peace of mind you deserve.

I’m a Mental Health Caregiver Coach and the Caregiver of a loved one with mental illness. I feel the same fear, frustration, anxiety, and exhaustion as many of you family caregivers feel. It is my goal and my passion to help  and empower you on your caregiving journey. To help you “take better care of yourself so that you can take better care of those you love”.

Stop the Cycle of Overwhelm

Empowering you to be a great caregiver by "taking better care of yourself so that you can take better care of those you love.

Are you caught in the relentless cycle of caregiving without a moment for yourself?

It's time to pause and reassess. The demands of caregiving can often leave you feeling like you're in a constant state of juggling responsibilities, with personal time and self-care seemingly slipping through your fingers. This continuous cycle can lead to burnout, stress, and a loss of identity outside your caregiving role. It's not just about the physical toll but the emotional and mental strain that comes with putting another's needs before your own at all times.

But remember, taking care of yourself isn't a luxury—it's a necessity.

By stepping back, even momentarily, you give yourself the space to breathe, reflect, and regain the energy you need to be both a better caregiver and a happier, more fulfilled individual.

Before working with Saundra, there was no place in my home to call my own where I could relax and recharge. Telling others what I wanted or needed was difficult because pleasing others, not being an inconvenience, and the fear of making others angry were bigger concerns to me. After working with Saundra, I have a studio in my home that my family respects as my space where I can do yoga, meditate, take classes, and have zoom meetings. I have learned to express my needs and take care of myself. My family can see the difference and appreciate the quality of time and care that I can give them now because of it. I recommend creating a coaching team with Saundra to everyone who wants to start making the changes that will expand their lives. Often we already know the parts of our lives that are unbalanced and need work. Saundra will shine a light on them so they are brought to the surface in the safest most comfortable setting that is created by both of you. I am so appreciative of participating in these sessions and look forward to all I can become with the help of my coach Saundra.
