Virtual Therapy for the Busy Professional

Enneagram Type 3 anyone?!?

Therapy from your couch - Not mine!

Tired of blocking out 2-3 hours to get to a therapy appointment?  Time to travel, hang out in a waiting room until your therapist calls your name and then time to travel back home. Then add in the 'dance' of schedules aligning to locate that perfect window of time to maximize the efficiency of your day.

Fun times, right?   Not in my world!    Virtual Therapy allows you to attend appointments in the comfort of your home or office via a HIPPA compliant video platform.

Therapy comes to you.

Now that I have your attention, welcome to my club!   As an overachiever, Type A personality or perfectionist we all tend to think of ourselves as indestructible, just need to push harder or try a different tactic or just be you.   It has always worked in the past, so why not now? I get it. I have been there. The bottom line is that sometimes the barrier in your way is one that we can work through together.   A wise person asked me once what my ideal client looked like. Ideal client? Never really thought about an ideal client, since in my field it is all about meeting the client where they are at, not looking for an ideal.   So, I thought about it for a while and this is what I came up with:

  • I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated for change, are independent thinkers with strong personalities and big dreams.
  • Clients who have high expectations that need to be managed but also feel like they life with Imposter Syndrome daily (sometimes hourly…)
  • Clients who fear failure, present as being independent and successful, but crave connection and to be “known” on an intimate level.
  • Clients who are blunt, call me out when needed and can manage compassionate, direct feedback and accountability when needed.

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people among us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Burnout and a lack of enthusiasm for life is becoming more common for anyone who is committed to their career or lifestyle choice. Therapy is not about being broken or weak, it is about being real, vulnerable and craving to be known for who you are at the core.  Really known and completely accepted for who you are.

We all are human at the core which means we all deal with the common humanity of life.

Ever see a slab of marble?   Beautiful, expensive unique marble?   What if it were slate or one color – without the cracks?  What happens to the beauty then?

It’s gone.  Slate is not marble.  In price, beauty or even personal choice.  Think of all of the “cracks” in your life. The sadness, the disappointments, the failures and the ‘this is not where I thought I would be at this age in my life’.   All of those cracks come together to form the beauty of your life – just like marble. Slate is boring and who likes boring!    

Marble is beautiful from the pressure and the imperfections.
So are YOU.

You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters but being authentic means being open, raw and vulnerable so you can work through the barriers you are experiencing so that you can return to be the rock star you were created to be in working with people. Imposter Syndrome is real and really is no fun. Let's change that together!

Sound at all like you?  Let’s chat! I have a feeling we would be a great fit and I am committed to partnering with you to get you back to the high achiever you are – with realistic expectations of life, self and those around you.
