Occupational therapy practitioners...
You can have authenticity, fulfillment, and vitality in your life and work.
Let’s be honest, being an OT isn’t easy — especially recently.
You’re constantly asked to do more with less.
It’s hard to grow and thrive to reach your full potential when things like fear of failure, lack of support, imposter syndrome, and perfectionism keep you stuck.
It’s exhausting, and it’s leading too many OTs down the path to burnout.
You’re passionate and care deeply about your clients. You have great ideas and a desire to make an impact… not just for your clients, but for your community and the world.
But… when you’re on the verge of burnout, making an impact is easier said than done, right?
It doesn’t have to be this way — you can overcome these stumbling blocks and find your unique groove, blaze trails, and do what you love the most. You can experience authenticity, fulfillment, and vitality.
And the best news yet? You don’t have to leave OT to start living the vibrant life you desire.

What Other Clients Are Saying:
“I now have confidence in myself in ways I know will allow me to grow my business and serve more people. It’s also been personally rewarding as it has helped me be more present with my teenage daughters. Thank you Carlyn, I also know what I value and I like myself a whole lot more, for me this is highly valuable.”
– Michelle, Occupational Therapist, Pediatric Private Practice
“I am learning strategies to help through tough moments and always know that not only do I have an amazing mental health coach who is walking this journey with me but also a group of others who are connecting and sharing the space. The community of our group is diverse and Carlyn has created such a non judgmental, safe space for us to process, grow, and transform. I am forever grateful for our work together. I love working with an OT, as I truly know our brains work so differently, and being able to process with someone who “gets” my mind on a foundational level is vital!”
– Erin T, Occupational Therapist
You learn how to curiously observe your life and actions. You uncover what elevates you or weighs you down. You use mindfulness skills and journaling to clarify your values and priorities.
You commit to taking small steps toward value-directed living. You intentionally do more of what matters to you and build it into your daily plan using the planner pages from the Vitality Guide.
You learn strategies to manage difficult thoughts and feelings. You use ACT techniques to “unhook” so you can continue to pursue the things that create satisfaction in your life.
My own therapist once asked me, "To continue the work you do, what will you do for yourself?"
Helping professionals are at high risk for burnout for many reasons:
The pandemic has magnified these risks.
OTs and other helping professionals — like you — are often reluctant to seek proactive support.
But you know prevention and early treatment helps in any situation.
The Vitality Guide is your first step into living with greater intention and vitality. Provide support for yourself so you can continue to do the work you love.
Helping visionary OTs move from burning out to living and working in vitality is my passion.
I’m Carlyn and I’m excited you’re here, because it means you’re actively moving toward more vitality and fulfillment. You’re gathering resources and adding to your skillset to create the life you deeply desire.
I’ve spent more than 19 years in practice as an OT primarily focused on mental health in high-achieving adults. I typically started working with clients when burnout had escalated to a debilitating level. My clients experienced the physical and mental effects of a sympathetic nervous system that was strained for far too long.
But I really want to help you early — before the problem escalates to the point of quitting your job, losing your marriage, or developing a severe mental illness. I’ve gathered many evidence-based resources to improve your resilience and vitality, and I can’t wait to share this journey with you.
There’s so much hope and potential when you make changes early.
You don’t have to slide into overwhelm, exhaustion, and total shut-down.
You can move toward authenticity, fulfillment, and vitality in your work and life - starting today!
