Being overworked, overwhelmed, and burnt out is normal—but it's not what's best for us. 

Whether you, or the team you lead, is running on empty, there’s a
way to rest and recharge that will last for years to come.
Our signature method of trauma-informed coaching was developed by Shenandoah Chefalo, who survived childhood abuse and neglect before and during her placement in the broken foster care system.
