I remember working with a little girl in my office when I was a young resident. She was one of hundreds of traumatized youth I was working with that year. Her treatment goal? To be willing to get her hands dirty. She had been physically beaten and neglected so horribly that she was afraid of making even the smallest mistakes. Day by day, moment by moment, we created an atmosphere of trust. One day, she came into my office with a smile on her face and said, "I'm ready...." She sunk her hands into the gooey, bright pink paint and proceeded to smear the color all over paper. Then I smiled. I took a glop of paint and plopped it on my nose. She giggled with delight. She painted her face, her hands, the paper, my face, my hands.
You're already doing this - you're an inspired professional with a huge heart who's hungry for more and wants to reach more patients and families....
You're burned out because you know you want to help your patients but need more "how to" and practical strategies....
to deep dive into ways to reach patients and families and begin to transform the culture of your practice.

Thank you for filling my cup & giving me space to care a bit for myself. I feel ready and excited to share with staff and patients.
Imagine participating in a retreat with like-minded provider colleagues where you could discuss the most important aspects of your practice, gain insight and support, all in while being spoiled with gourmet food in wine country. Plus, gain 15 CME.
Join me for all the above via attending one of my provider retreats.

It's truly my passion that every system have Champions of Resilience - professionals within your system that know what trauma-informed systems look like, understand core principles of compassionate environments and utilize resources to build resilience in medical organizations. The initial training can be for 20 people or 500 on topics such as provider burnout, leadership, staff wellness, and clinical consultation.
Are you feeling your energy slipping away while at work? Re-group monthly with like-minded provider colleagues to practice skills, share stories, offer resources, and get refreshed in my membership community, Refresh: The Most Important Medicine.

“Today was probably one of the best PD’s that I’ve attended. You were very engaging and had a great deal of important pertinent information. You brought tears to my eyes and made me laugh. Thank you for keeping it real. As a person with 5 ACES myself who raised two daughters on my own, it really hit home.”

“Amy’s workshop was mind blowing. There were so many practical things that no one has ever said to me and I’ve never read anywhere. Too many times, speakers are too perfect and haven’t dealt with the any of the things they are presenting. Amy is real. My husband and I both left her training feeling empowered.”
