What is compassion fatigue?

Compassion fatigue is a condition in which professionals experience exhaustion or burn out. Sometimes compassion fatigue can be worsened by other factors such as lack of social support, lack of fun activities, and other life experiences such as dealing with anxiety or being a caregiver.

How to combat compassion fatigue?

Compassion fatigue can be combated in many ways. Relationships Matter LLC takes a professional resiliency approach (Gentry) combined with parts work. Restoring compassion can take some time as professionals begin to reorient themselves.

What type of professional experience fatigue?

Compassion fatigue can be experienced by anyone in demanding work environments or who have been working constantly without enough time to re-energize.

Specialized Approaches

Professional Resiliency


This is a specialized approach crafted by Eric Gentry that can also be helpful for anyone. This approach is about slowing down and allowing yourself to really get into your body. De-stressing tools are provided to be practiced and tailored in ways that make sense for you.  Rarely, is there one cause of stress of life. Nor is there usually the ability to get away from stressors. Your body, believe it our not contains all the technology needed. It's just that many of us have forgotten how to use our own internal technology. You and I will work to slowly return you to a state of compassion satisfaction if desired.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)


IFS, created by Dr. Swartz is a framework for doing parts work with couples and individuals. The ultimate goal is be more of your Self, which is characterized by the 8 C's: compassion, confidence, courage, connection, calmness, creativity, curiosity, and clarity. Ever said a part of me wants to... That's how this model works. Notice how you respond to certain people, places, and events. Each response is likely a part of you, yet not the whole you. The interesting thing is that many of these parts have created professional success. Now they are just on overload and don't know what else to do. We (you and I) can help them. Visit the IFS Institute webpage for more information.



Book a complimentary 15-minute discovery consult to help you decide. The consult is not counseling, however, it might be helpful.

Consultations (clients & professionals), home-based, couple intensives, and other services are available upon request. Groups are based on interest. I do not bill insurance for the reasons below. If requested, I will provide you with a superbill that you can submit to your insurance.

  • Billing lessens your confidentiality and privacy and can come up for some employment background checks.
  • Insurance companies typically require a diagnosis which may or may not be covered for family and couple services.
  • Insurance companies can dictate which services or approaches are reimbursable even when something else may be more effective for you. 
  • I prefer to put relationships and wellness over profits (yes, I really mean that!).
