Therapy for Professionals
Regain control of your professional and personal life.
The stress of a demanding career can impact you negatively on a mental, emotional, and physical level.
For those of you working in high-pressure careers like attorneys, stockbrokers, or business owners, the pressure to perform well, and the consequences of failing to perform can be overwhelming.
Not every career is high-intensity, but all professionals deal with stress to varying degrees. You may experience conflicts with bosses or coworkers, competition for promotions, challenges balancing a career with family and personal relationships, and fighting feelings of inadequacy or failure. Or you might simply have reached the point where you don’t want to get out of bed to battle day.
You aren’t alone. Many professionals deeply devoted to their careers struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, and even substance abuse.
“The greatest weapon against stress
is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy demonstrated to be extremely effective for problems common to professionals like:
- Occupational burnout
- Intense anxiety
- Feelings of inadequacy
- Feelings of failure
- Substance abuse
CBT is more than just “talk therapy.” There is ample scientific evidence that CBT methods produce change and lead to significant improvements in functioning and quality of life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is usually short-term, goal-oriented, and focused on specific problems. Goal setting in CBT is productive because it highlights the possibility of change, makes insurmountable problems appear more manageable, and increases your hope of overcoming them.
As a CBT therapist, I help professionals identify and understand learned patterns of destructive or unhelpful behavior. And, more importantly, as a CBT therapist, I can help change those disruptive thought patterns so you can regain control of your professional and personal life.
It’s not a weakness to seek help. Your well-being and success in both your professional and personal life rely on coping with the stress in ways that lead to better mental, emotional, and physical health.
I can’t relieve you of the responsibility you’ve accepted, but I can help you manage the stress of that responsibility.
If you find yourself unable to cope with specific professional situations or are worn down by the day to day grind, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can help. Contact me today for a confidential consultation.
