Psychotherapy Services for Mission-Driven Professionals
As a mission-driven professional you are not afraid of doing hard work. You have pursued high levels of training and education driven by your desire to help others and your steadfast commitment to make the world a better and more just place to live.
You have no shortage of compassion in you for the amount of suffering you see in the world.
But when it comes down to your own suffering, you easily dismiss it or minimize it. Telling yourself that your pain is nothing compared to the pain your clients live with.
Inside of you lives a harsh and sometimes punitive judge that is always ready to say just the right thing to make you feel shame and guilt. So far, it has been the more effective way to make sure you don’t deviate from your ideals.
However, you have started to notice the price you’re paying for letting this part lead the way all the time. Although you feel gratitude and admiration for getting you where you are right now, professionally and personally, there are signs that indicate that things are no longer working in the same way.
Burnout, resentment, anxiety, and depression often work as a signal that tells us something important about the strategies that we have relied upon to deal with stress or survival. What it means is that those sets of strategies have hit their expiration date. As a result, they have become ineffective (just like expired medications), or they get us sick (just like spoiled chicken). Hope the imagery drives the point home! 🙂
We are here to help you get back on track! Our group of bilingual psychotherapists are passionate about helping clients to go from a place of overwhelm and depletion, to a place where they can fully reconnect with their capacity to fully experience joy, love, and a purpose-driven life.
We provide trauma-informed*, attachment-based**, experiential***, individual and couples therapy, integrating effective interventions from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and internal family systems modalities.
