Life happens. You’re late to your meeting because of traffic on 395. Another car suddenly swerves into your lane to cut into the exit line. You get to the office, only to then realize you forgot the client folder at home.
It’s only 9:00 in the morning and you already feel stressed.
We are living in more stressful times than years ago.
People are working harder than they have before. Work is more complex.
The demands of leadership and the office are harder.
And the integration of work and home life have become more complicated.
Ongoing stress is a huge problem.
It spills into our personal life, effecting our personal relationships. It leads to limitations in creativity, innovation and memory. It decreases our ability to pay attention to details and contributes to problems sleeping. The list is long.
Overall, it contributes to many physical and emotional problems.
Well, great news! There are many skills you can learn to respond to stress in a helpful way.
I use a combination of therapy and mindfulness skills to help people build more resilience so they can bounce back from disappointing and difficult events.
This approach can help you become better at resolving conflicts, sharpen your attention, improve your relationships and overall well-being.
So if you experience….
- Long, uncertain hours, working away from home, or taking work home.
- High pressure to perform but a lack of resources to do your job well.
- Difficulties paying attention or remembering information — noticing your mind is wondering more often and you are getting off task easily or that you are missing deadlines, meetings, etc.
- Health problems such as difficulty sleeping, frequent illness or high blood pressure.
- Strained personal relationships or limited time with family and friends.
….then I am glad you have found me.
