Our Entrepreneur Therapist:
If you are an entrepreneur you may have experienced the constant pressure to perform and high-stress levels - including the backward messaging around finding “work-life balance” when it should be “life-work balance," often what comes from this are feelings of:
- Lack of work and personal life boundaries
- Toxic Productivity
- Imposter syndrome
- Relationship impacts
- Missing personal events
- Irritability with demands for your time from family and friends
- Forgetfulness etc. etc. etc.
Working with a therapist for entrepreneurs that understands and has lived entrepreneurial experience can help.
Depending on what you experienced listed above or more. These repeated feelings and interactions can also manifest as mental health challenges such as:
- Anxiety disorders
- Panic attacks
- Relationship conflicts
- Emotional regulation struggles
- Chronic shame or self-criticism
- Other stress-related mental health challenges.
- Grief & loss around what you are missing out on.
- Existential Crisis
If you also have had any big or little trauma in your life, this can compound the impact even more. Therapy for entrepreneurs understands how your mental health and relationships are impacted by your work.
At Talk. Heal. Thrive. our therapist Lindsey Ferris, MS, LMFTA has lived experience working as an entrepreneur, for a decade prior to becoming a psychotherapist. She comes to your psychotherapy treatments from a stance of being both trauma-informed (how have negative or traumatic experiences impacted your emotions and responses today) as well as from a somatic-based approach (where are you feeling things in your body when circumstances, interactions, and feelings come up, i.e., "body psychotherapy"). Entrepreneur therapy can help you understand the “why” behind your emotions, behaviors, and feelings so that you can make conscious growth in the areas you want to work on. Additionally, have a better understanding, self-compassion, and self-awareness of how to make the change you want to see.
