Burnout Coach

Who am I?

Dr. Ricky Fernandez is a Burnout coach and Doctor of Physical Therapy who believes that nannies deserve tools to help them cope with the stress of being caregivers. I learned the hard way that burnout lies around the corner for any employee who lacks the safeguards to protect their energy and mental health. Now I’m committed to helping nannies ditch their chronic stress, implement effective boundaries, and practice in a way to works for them, not against them.

Common nanny struggles

Nannies typically face a number of job stressors that can impact your ability to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a nanny, you might be struggling with...

  • Long and irregular hours
  • Exhaustion and lack of personal time for yourself
  • Demanding and high-pressure work environments
  • Feeling undervalued or underappreciated for your efforts
  • Lacking clear boundaries between work and personal life

Left unchecked, these stressors can lead to burnout.

What is burnout?

Burnout is a syndrome caused by chronic work and/or life stress that has not been successfully managed. Burnout is not your run-of-the-mill fatigue that's relieved with a good night of sleep or a weekend off. Burnout looks like:

  • Emotional exhaustion that doesn't go away with a good night of sleep
  • Disinterest for your work
  • Poor work performance or reduced confidence in abilities
