Therapy for Black Professionals struggling with workplace stress
That feeling of dread when Monday rolls around and only God knows what the week is going to bring.
Perhaps your boss comments on the fact that you're "actually" a good accountant.
Or maybe a colleague comments how how "wild" your hair is and that it looks better pressed.
Maybe you're passed up yet again for a promotion, despite having the most degrees and certificates of anyone on your team.
Perhaps you're First-Gen and having a hard time balancing your dreams with that of your parents.
Or your most recent performance review notes that you're "too quiet", "not a team player" or "need to watch your tone".
Despite what you've tried to do to "step it up", you begin to notice some strange feelings that are getting harder and harder to shake...
Fatigue. Racing Heart.
Low Motivation. Inability to Concentrate.
Overwhelm. Muscular Tension.
Irritability. Skin Problems.
Lack of Creativity. Discouragement.
Gastrointestinal Upsets. Difficulty Making Decisions.
Relationship Problems. Impatience.
Obsessive Thoughts. Muscle Tension.
Headaches. Sleep Issues.
