About Karl LaRowe

Karl LaRowe, compassion fatigue, burnoutKarl LaRowe was on the brink of burnout. He felt depressed, tired, and anxious all the time. His stomach, neck, and back muscles were always tense. His heart seemed like it was going to explode. The unpredictable violence and trauma he experienced working as a crisis counselor in the emergency room of a busy inner city hospital had left him with Compassion Fatigue. Unable to control and manage the secondary-traumatic stress he encountered at work, he developed severe and persistent depression and nearly ended his life by suicide.

In combination with therapy and medication, Karl researched and developed new methods to recover from trauma and depression.  Utilizing somatic awareness, conscious breathing, mindful movement and creative visualization, he developed effective natural methods for restoring his energy and vitality for care giving. As a result, he was able to discontinue his medication and return to the work he loved again.

By combining elements of mindful movement with positive psychology
  Karl developed FlowMotion - an energy transforming exercise that has helped thousands of professional and non-professional care providers find the strength and stamina to go on working and caring for others in need.
