Therapy for Entrepreneurs in NYC
Striking the ideal work-life balance can be difficult for anyone, but especially so for female entrepreneurs. You try to manage it all: work, family, and your own personal well being, but sometimes it feels impossible. Therapy for entrepreneurs in NYC can help you learn how to set boundaries that prevent burnout.
On one hand, running your own business can be incredibly empowering. At the same time, it can also be stressful and overwhelming, especially when trying to balance your personal life with all the demands of entrepreneurship.
While you might believe that a successful entrepreneur has to manage all of this on their own, we’d like to challenge that idea. We believe that getting the right support can help you craft a fulfilling life-both inside and outside of work.
As therapists for entrepreneurs in NYC, we help women like you find balance and navigate the stressors that come along with owning a business. If you’re interested in learning more, we encourage you to reach out and schedule your complimentary 15-minute consultation to get started.
How we can help
We are passionate about helping female entrepreneurs in NYC create the life they want-both within their career and personal life. It can be difficult to find that balance on your own, so we’re here to be your sounding board and confidant as you reflect on what a meaningful life looks like for you.
In our work together, we will help you harness your existing strengths in a whole new way. We will also teach you new skills that can help you feel confident and empowered as you navigate entrepreneurship, personal relationships, and your own connection with yourself.
We use a relational-cultural, anti-oppressive lens with all our clients. Our goal is to craft a relationship built on curiosity, respect, and compassion. If it sounds like we might be a good fit for you, we encourage you to get in touch to request your free consultation.
Our approach to therapy for entrepreneurs
As a female entrepreneur, you face unique challenges. You often give all of yourself to everyone else: at work, you prioritize relationships with your employees, clients, and business partners. At home, your partner, family, and friends get all of your attention if you’re not mindful. This leaves little time and energy for caring for your own mental health.
In therapy, we’ll reflect on your inner narrative. This will help us gain a deep understanding of the thought processes that keep you from achieving the balance you crave. From here, we’ll identify the changes you can create in order to align your actions with your vision.
We believe that therapy for entrepreneurs is most effective when it’s tailored to your specific needs and strengths, so we take an individualized approach to treatment. Part of this includes taking time to build a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship. Having this connection can help you feel safe opening up and growing toward your goals.
Treating entrepreneurial burnout
Though each person’s journey in therapy is unique, many women come to us for help with entrepreneurial burnout. As a business owner, you often wear multiple hats and are spread thin from all the demands you face.
During our work together, we will tap into your inner strength to help you set healthy boundaries that can protect your energy and dramatically improve your mental health. We will also equip you with the communication skills you need to feel confident asserting yourself in every area of your life.
Cultivating a consistent self care practice is another major component of therapy for business owners. Studies show that stress is a major contributor to entrepreneurial burnout, so incorporating self care skills like meditation, proper sleep, and moderate exercise (like yoga and walking) is essential.
As you know firsthand, entrepreneurs also face a significant amount of uncertainty. Research suggests that this ambiguity can be another contributing factor to burnout. By engaging in therapy, you can increase your tolerance for coping with uncertainty and build confidence in your own decision making.
Frequently Asked Questions
Curious to learn more about how working with an entrepreneur therapist can help? We’ve answered some of the most common questions we get from women like you, though we encourage you to contact us if you have other questions or prefer to speak directly.
Unfortunately, business owners are not immune from mental health concerns. While each person is different, many of the entrepreneurs that come to me for support struggle with anxiety and stress in particular. The stress of business ownership can intensify the symptoms of anxiety, as well as other mental health issues.
With that being said, you don’t need a specific diagnosis to work with a therapist for entrepreneurs in NYC. Many business owners seek therapy for help setting boundaries, improving communication, navigating difficulties in their personal lives, and more.
Being an entrepreneur is inherently stressful. You face an uncertain future dependent on your own efforts as well as several factors beyond your control. Even aside from being a business owner, stress is a part of life.
While tough times are inevitable, you can choose how to cope with them. Therapy can teach you communication skills to help you express yourself in times of stress. You’ll also learn skills to set boundaries and build your self care practice to help you care for yourself when things get intense.
You can also learn how your thought and behavior patterns may compound stressful situations-and strategies for making shifts to help you feel better.
Yes! We recognize that the demands of business ownership, especially within startup culture, can make it difficult to carve out time for appointments. Online therapy allows you to join sessions in an instant, cutting out the commute time to and from a therapist office.
With virtual sessions, you can also access therapy from the comfort of your home or office. Talking to a therapist in a space where you already feel at ease can make a big difference. Plus, online therapy enables us to support women throughout the entire of New York, as well as Florida.
Working with an entrepreneur therapist in NYC can help you thrive at work and at home
Many entrepreneurs feel hesitant about seeking help because of the idea that they should “have it all together.” You might feel tempted to compare yourself to other entrepreneurs who seem to have an easier time than you, or you might worry that you’re not cut out for entrepreneurship.
However, you deserve support, and you can succeed as an entrepreneur even if you’re struggling right now. The stress of being a business owner might feel totally overwhelming, but you don’t have to navigate it alone.
Working with a therapist for entrepreneurs in NYC can help you get clear on what success means to you and take tangible steps toward achieving that-all while building boundaries to help you avoid burnout.
