So many of our clients have expressed that they love their work, but hate their jobs. They discuss that they struggle to implement the strategies for wellness that they have read about on the internet. When trying to seek support they report unpredictable schedules that do not allow for consistent attendance at in-person therapy and other activities for wellness. Our clients are not alone in this experience. According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review (Rundle, 2018), as employees’ travel increases, their self-reported rates of anxiety, insomnia, obesity, and a whole slew of challenges increase. Other professionals have reported challenges with rotating shifts, long hours, privacy, or their careers as behavioral health providers when attempting to access counseling services.
As a team dedicated to meeting the needs of those clients we serve: we listened. Our flexible, personalized, hybrid-model of tele-counseling and in-person support allows our clients to increase their work-life balance. Our clients develop insight into their unique strengths and receive support with implementing new strategies for deepening their connections to themselves, their loved ones, and their colleagues. We believe mental health and well-being do not have to take a back seat to successful careers. In fact, by addressing challenges through flexible and tailored approaches, our clients experience increased satisfaction and confidence as they navigate an ever-changing and fast-paced career.

*PLEASE NOTE: teletherapy and online mental health services are often not sufficient in the event of a crisis or emergency, as these services may not provide adequate assistance in these instances. Moreover if you are in crisis or someone you know is a threat to themselves, you should call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 (where you can receive 24/7 support), contact local crisis services, or call 911
