Welcome

Hi, I’m Teena…

Being compassionate is no easy undertaking in a world full of suffering. All too often, people in the helping professions get overwhelmed and burned out as they struggle to care for those around them. Those driven by the motivation to alleviate suffering—who may have even built careers around it as healthcare professionals, educators, social workers, therapists, and more—are confronted daily by obstacles to acting with compassion. We’re conditioned to believe that expressing too much compassion could threaten the boundaries of our professionalism or cause us to become infected by the suffering of others.

My specialties are dealing with complex grief and loss, being with the dying, overcoming empathic distress and overwhelm, and burnout as a helping professional or caretaker.

I recommend this book to anyone going through grief ( from the loss of a loved one) or pain from a broken relationship.

In her book, Teena paints an honest and moving narrative of the grief she's suffered including the loss of her beloved father and how she embraced and moved through her losses with bravery and openness.

The thought prompts throughout the book were helpful for looking inward to connect with memories and feelings associated with loss that have been weighing me down.
