Why I Created This Course

I only work with people who work with animals. Mainly veterinary professionals and animal welfare advocates. I know how much you love animals but I also know how much you are hurting. How much you question your career, yourself and even your compassion. Crazy right? You've wanted to do this work your entire life and now you're not so sure if you want to or even can.

I've got you.

I can help you.

You are ok.

We can do this together.

Join me in this 6-week journey to reconnect with yourself and become empowered. It is more than possible.

Julie and Ernie

About Me

I'm Julie Squires, BA, Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist, Certified Life Coach and Founder of Rekindle a compassion fatigue solutions company. I've worked in the veterinary field for over 25 years as a veterinary assistant, hospital administrator and in industry sales and training. In all these years I've known too many veterinarians who committed suicide. 1 is too many. I knew a lot more than 1. And it isn't just veterinarians that are struggling with the "emotional residue" of the work, so are vet techs, animal welfare workers and lab animal research workers. How do I know? Because I work with them all.

I've suffered myself, a lot. I never knew where my emotions came from and how to make myself feel better other than using drugs, alcohol and food. So I used them all, to excess. I now live a life that hardly resembles my former one. I know how to manage my emotions and my mind and I do it everyday. I take very good care of myself so I am full of energy to travel around the country and give seminars and workshops to people just like you. I was born to teach others what I've learned and I'm beyond blessed to do this work. I'm honored to meet you.

Module #1 How to Coach Yourself to Feel Better

Why hasn't anyone ever taught us where our feelings come from and how to actually feel better? It's the basis of what I teach so you can be assured you will learn exactly WHY you  feel like you do and HOW to change it. This module will teach you a powerful model that explains how the world works and how you can claim authority over not just your feelings but your entire life.

Module #2 This Would Be Great If It Weren't For the Humans: Dealing With Difficult People

While working with animals can be challenging , the consistent theme I hear among all animal workers is that it's the dealing with the humans that is causing them the majority of their pain and suffering. We can't control other people but we can absolutely control how we respond and react to them. This module will dive into what you can control as it relates to others and how that can bring you freedom and relief. I will teach you the options you always have available to you, how to feel compassion for others(when you don't!) and how to take your power back.

Module #3 It's Not You, It's Me: Creating and Enforcing Boundaries

We become people pleasers because we don't want to hurt or disappoint others. The result is that we hurt and disappoint ourselves. Boundaries are not easy but are critical in the work you do. Without boundaries you'll end up feeling taken advantage, angry, resentful, overwhelmed and frustrated. We will cover what a boundary truly is, what a violation is and when and how to create and enforce boundaries in your work and personal lives to protect and respect yourself.

Module #4 Serenity Now! How to Manage Stress

Stress has always been a part of life but we're dealing with more now than ever. In this module  we will explore the gamut of stress reduction options for you to find what works for you so you can create your own "first aid kit" for when life feels like too much.

Module #5 Badass Self-Care

You're likely feeling exhausted and depleted, could it be because you aren't attending to your own needs? (Um, yes!) I'm going to teach you everything I know about why and how to take exceptionally good care of yourself so you feel energized and taken care of. Your time has come friend!

Module #6 Mindfulness/ Meditation for Your Sanity

I know what you're going to say, "I've tried meditating but I can't quiet my mind." Exactly.

Meditation has proven success in the area of compassion fatigue and decreasing emotional reactivity, ruminating thoughts, anxiety and depression, etc. I will teach you how to meditate and to bring mindfulness into your life to create well-being and a sense of inner peace. You will find that even with a very minimal meditation practice the things that used to bother you and drive you crazy will be much less so or even not at all.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if this course is right for me?

If you're here, chances are good you don't like the way you're feeling about your work, your life or both. If that's you, then this course is for you. I meet many, many animal workers that are feeling numb, exhausted, burned out and are doubting themselves or their sustainability in their work. That's who I created this course for.


What kind of technology do I need?

A smartphone or laptop is all that you need in addition to a printer to print out the worksheets.


How do I pay?

I use PayPal which accepts all major credit/debit cards but if you need to pay another way, just email me ( and we will work it out.

Do you offer a money back guarantee?

I don't want your hard earned money if what I'm offering isn't valuable to you. If within the first  week of the course you're not feeling the love and learning anything of value,  let me know and I'll gladly return your investment.


How much time do I need to participate in CFRx?

Good question! We're all busy so I understand the time constraints. I also understand that you may not be spending much time on yourself right now so part of the goal of this course is for you to carve out some time for just YOU. That being said, here's what you can expect:

  • Videos - 20-30 minutes/week
  • Support audios- 15-30 minutes/week
  • Daily practices/homework - 10-15 minutes/day


How and when can I set up the individual coaching sessions? 

You will receive a link to my online scheduler where you can find a time that is convenient for you. Sessions are held over the phone and are designed to give you personal attention and support for anything you might be struggling with. 



All I can say is, "Wow!" Through working with Julie, I have discovered a whole new way of thinking about myself that seemed such a remote possibility when I started. Previously, I had an idea about Compassion Fatigue as this "diagnosis" without every having any information on how to deal with it. The concepts I've learned through are simple yet powerful techniques for recognizing how the mind works, and then changing how you think! I'm still a work in progress, but I am starting to be able to see myself (as well as to see others) in a different light. The skills I've learned with Julie are helping me in so many areas of my life, not just dealing with Compassion Fatigue as it relates to my career. I wish that we could all be taught these things at an early age - how much would it make an impact on our later lives? I am truly grateful to Julie for her wisdom, expertise, kindness, patience, and humor...I am a better, happier, me!


Entering the realm of compassion fatigue, what it was, what it meant to me, was definitely a challenging journey to say the least! I spent two (one on one) six week sessions with Julie and through all of our discussions I thought I was talking with a friend. Its interesting to have someone to talk to who is completely neutral and unbiased about any given topic. The coaching helped bring me back to who my inner self was and what my PURPOSE was on this crazy earth. My love for animals was shadowed by my work at times and it was affecting my thoughts on the daily.

I learned a lot about myself and how to be aware of my thoughts and how to work through negative space. We really are in control of everything we do. We set ourselves up for what our destiny WILL be.

 On an end note, I am SO happy that I had a chance to meet with Julie. She truly is a guru for mindfulness and positivity. I don't know how she does it! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is struggling with compassion fatigue! Thanks Julie:)
