Manage stress in the workplace through a mindful approach

Science has found a deep connection between staying calm and enhancing productivity.

Bringing a Zen approach to your professional life requires slowing down, planning ahead, deepening the breath, and not sweating the stressors of the workspace.

It’s not uncommon to feel anxious, irritable, or depressed at work. Apathy may set in or you may lose interest in your work. You find it hard to concentrate. Stress affects your sleep which builds into chronic fatigue.

Maybe you’ve tried meditation or joining a gym or contemplated looking for a less demanding position. You may have even considered medication.

Whether you are a lawyer billing in six-minute increments or an executive who must excel in a competitive work environment, the pressure to maintain this image bleeds into your personal life, relationships, family, and health.

The good news is that it’s not necessary to over-perform to cover anxiety and maintain an image of competency. A Zen approach to professional life allows you to manage your workload effectively and leave the office behind at the end of day.

Whether you face stress from client expectations, corporate politics, or managing your work/life balance, I can help you pull back and see the bigger picture. I offer practical tools to navigate the relentless pressure and build resilience to the forces of a high-stakes professional life.

In the same way that an accountant applies skills to run a business more efficiently, my therapist skill set helps you work with emotions more effectively. As your emotional trainer, I can teach you to function at peak performance without absorbing stress.

I teach a mindful approach that builds mental toughness and clarity, supports your goal pursuit, and helps you embrace the demands of your profession.

With 15 years’ experience, I’d like to help you:

  • Take command of your schedule, instead of letting it run your life
  • Slow down and become more intentional in your business conversations
  • Decrease the interpersonal stress that comes from working in a team
  • Learn to regroup amid the pressures of an intense work environment
  • Let go of perfectionism as a way to get things done
  • Create a mental stability to manage the pressures of the job
  • Understand your emotional stress instead of reacting to it

peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
