About Chelsy Castro
You are a high achieving professional, but you are still not fulfilled. You're not a quitter, but something needs to change. Feeling exhausted, worried, angry, stuck, and/or frustrated have become the norm. Perhaps you are having trouble concentrating or the workload, anxiety, and pressure are finally taking a toll. You present well on paper, so it's hard to believe that anyone could understand. You want to be excited about work and maybe even life again, or at least feel less anxious and depressed, but nothing you’ve tried so far has worked.
Not everyone gets what it's like - the success on the outside and the anxiety, doubt, and exhaustion on the inside. As therapist who was a lawyer, I specialize in working with people who present well on the outside, but secretly struggle on the inside. I get it, and I know how to tailor science-based solutions to help get you to "better."
You are not one to give up just because things get hard. You know you want to feel differently, but you don’t know where to start. You can start here.
A little more about me as a person:
I was a lawyer and a lifelong chronic high achiever, but I realized somewhere along the way that I wanted to help people in a different way. I saw many of my high achieving classmates and colleagues struggling with trouble concentrating, self-doubt, fear, burnout, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, etc. and realized that my passion lay in helping others overcome these types of barriers to their happiness and success.
I train people around the country on how to use science-based strategies to build the skills the need to succeed and enjoy working with people one on one to help them apply those skills for happiness and success.
