How do we build cultures of care in times of challenge and change?

We empower leaders and teams to take care of themselves, so they can show up for each other.
In other words, we create a more compassionate workforce.

At Hollingsworth Consulting, we do this through therapeutic leadership coaching—a powerful, strategic process that supports leaders and teams to manage stress, build resilience, and find balance as they navigate the unexpected.

Dr. Andrea blends performance coaching with psychotherapy for enhanced well-being, decision-making, leadership effectiveness, personal growth, and professional success.

What does it take to become a compassionate leader?

Active listening

Strategic planning

Goal setting

Skill building






Say goodbye to burnout.  Turnover.  Quiet quitting.  Team conflict.  Lowered productivity.  Exclusion.  Irritability.  Incivility.

Get ready to welcome a new era of work.

Andrea is a vitality mentor.

She connects the dots between the mind, body, and spirit. She leads with kindness and backs it up with science.
