Social service, mental health, and medical providers, and community organizers
All levels of any service organization need intentional opportunities to address the moral injury, grief, burnout, trauma, and exhaustion of COVID-19.
Debrief and grieve.
Support your staff and each other to be as psychologically, emotionally, and physically resilient as possible.
Irene is working with community organizations to help them support their staff. She provides personalized online group facilitation, support, training, and consultation; including one-time, weekly, or bi-weekly staff wellness check-ins, burnout awareness, and self-care skill-building.
In March and April 2020 these services were supported by a COVID-19 Mental Health grant Irene received from the City of Minneapolis.
Some of the non-profit organizations she worked with during 2020 and 2021: The Aliveness Project in Minnesota, Touchstone Mental Health Services in the Twin Cities, Executive Directors Group in the Twin Cities, and the New Mexico Criminal Defense Lawyers Association

COVID-19 Wellness specifically Designed for Your Organization or Agency
Wellness Staff Check-in Meetings One of the options that many organizations and agencies are finding helpful is to work with Irene to arrange online wellness group check-in and debriefing meetings for their staff. Irene works with each organization to create a group meeting structure that is geared towards the particular services that the organization provides, the specific duties of the staff who will be present, and the challenges and concerns that the staff is facing.
Rates: If needed, I will adjust the fee or will provide a portion of the consultation services at no cost.
