Stress, Anxiety, and Burnout – A Flea Management Analogy for Mental Health


Management of stress, anxiety, and burnout begins with an understanding of the etiology of each and their relationship to each other. Join me in September for a brief review of the pathophysiology of stress, anxiety, and burnout as well as the impact each can have on your wellbeing. We will discuss how to recognize each as it manifests in both your work and home life, as well as a few efficient and effective strategies for managing all three.



Dr. Taylor Miller

Thoughtful Life Counseling


Veterinarians, physicians, therapists, social service employees, and parents are indispensable as caretakers. However, personal needs, self-care, and personal boundaries are often dismissed by caretakers as indulgences. Caretakers often feel pressured to perform at unachievable levels, making it difficult for them to appreciate their own value. Worse, the relentless imbalance of caring for others without replenishing themselves may lead to personal or professional burnout. Compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, ethical fatigue, feelings of isolation, and difficulties in important relationships may also be present. This must change.

As a therapist, a mother, and a veterinarian, I am dedicated to improving wellness and the capacity for self-care in clients who are themselves caretakers. My unique perspective allows for a fresh approach to persistent challenges. I help clients use their innate strengths in novel ways to achieve long-standing goals or to work through present difficulties.

I believe each person’s story can be filled with beauty, strength, resilience, and joy despite the presence of loss, hardship, or struggle. Let me offer you a safe, restorative space in which to explore what is, what could be, and together we will work on how to bridge the difference between your today and your tomorrow. The next chapter is yours to write.
