“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”  —Carl Bard

Counseling for Professionals

You are tired of…

  • Feeling like no one understands what your daily life is like
  • Being overwhelmed by pressure and responsibilities
  • Never being able to turn off your thoughts
  • Your job consuming your life
  • Feeling like you can never do enough

And especially…

  • Not enjoying your life the way you want to enjoy it
Counseling for Professionals

Being a professional is not easy, especially if you own or manage your own practice.

Counseling for Professionals

You have so many responsibilities and people relying on you. No one can do all of the things you do-except you. It is easy to feel the weight of the world on your shoulders. It is also easy to let your career bleed over into all of the other areas of your life. There are constant fires to put out and decisions to make.

And you feel like there is not a counselor in this world who could possibly understand or help you.

I understand. I spent many years practicing law before I went back to school to earn a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health and become an associate licensed counselor. Plus, I am married to an attorney who runs his own firm. I know that always needing to be one step ahead of your opposition can keep you in your head thinking about the future. I know how managing others and running your own business can affect all areas of your life, including your relationships. You do not have to be a lawyer for me to understand the pressure you are under. I have many physician friends and I run my own business. I understand what it is like to be an entrepreneur, always feeling like there is something else you could or should be doing to move your business forward.

Empower Counseling & Coaching can help you.

I have helped other professionals like you go from…

  • Feeling consumed by your career to having a more balanced life
  • Feeling overwhelming pressure to focusing only on what you can control and letting go of the rest
  • Not being able to turn off your thoughts to mindfully living in the present moment
  • Having work bleed over into personal and family time to setting clear boundaries and enjoying your time outside of the office

From feeling like you can never do enough to knowing exactly what you want to accomplish in your day and feeling satisfied when you do.

And especially, from not enjoying your life to feeling fulfilled and satisfied in all domains or areas of your life.

Counseling for Professionals

Empower Counseling is different from other counseling.

I understand how difficult it can be to feel overwhelmed by pressure and responsibility, to not be able to turn it off or get away from it. We will discover how you want your life to be different, what you really want it to look like. Then we help you with an action plan to get there!

Empower Counseling uses Acceptance Commitment Therapy to help you become clear about what is important to you, what has been standing in your way, and the actions it will take for you to be the person you want to be and to have the kind of life you want to have.

I begin with really listening and understanding what you are going through and how this is affecting you. I examine every domain or area of your life to determine where you are satisfied and where you are not satisfied. I help you uncover what is most important to you – what you want your life to look like. This might take a little digging, but we will get there. Once we know what is most important to you, we  examine what has been getting in your way. Then we focus on the exercises and actions that will get you to a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

What is holding you back from beginning counseling with Empower to get on the path to your best, most enjoyable life?

Are you thinking, “I should be able to do this on my own?”

I mean, you are smart, and strong, right? Of course you are, but sometimes the smartest, strongest thing you can do is to admit that you could use a little help. You don’t have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders any longer. We can help ease that burden and show you the way to a much more enjoyable life.

You might be thinking, “I don’t have time for counseling?”

To that I would say, the longer you put off counseling, the longer you go on not enjoying your life the way you could be enjoying it. How long have you been consumed by your thoughts, not really enjoying your life? 50 min a week, in office or by video, is such a small investment in your future but it can reap huge rewards. There is another way. It is time to make a change.
