At Wayzata Bay Wellness, we focus on the unique challenges of those in high-pressure careers, including consulting, finance, technology, healthcare, law, and academia. The intensity of these jobs often leads to relationship problems, anxiety about performance, stress, exhaustion, burnout, and limited time and energy for relationships outside of work, resulting in a shrinking support network and frustrated partners. That’s why we also focus on the families of such individuals.
If you’re facing some or all of these issues, schedule a call.
Since January 2020, I have been chair of the APA Committee on Rural Health
