Working at a law firm can be hard. With the demands of billing hours, committee meetings, servicing clients who want access 24/7, and bringing in new business, women attorneys may feel unhappy because they are simply surviving and not thriving at work. With some firms offering flex time and maternity leave, women lawyers may continue to feel they are marginalized onto a “mommy track” and penalized at compensation time.
Although attempts to achieve work-life balance may be helpful, research shows that women attorneys continue to be unhappy,
and frequently leave the profession before they make partner.
By shifting the focus to what is meaningful about the work you do and what aspects of it make you happy, you can thrive.
When you lead a fulfilling life, cultivate what is best within yourself, and enhance your experiences of love, work, and play,
you not only become happier in your career, but you become more productive as well.
Although there are unlimited concerns women attorneys experience in their lives,
the most common ones I see and help with include:
- Boundaries with work
- Boundaries with clients
- Work-place harassment
- Work-place gender-bias
- Work-place discrimination
- Sexual harassment
- Relationship Concerns
- Finance-related stressors
- Alcohol consumption concerns
Together, we will work to discover what makes you feel most alive, the strengths that reflect who you truly are,
and experiences where you felt energized and fully engaged.
We will shift from a mindset of discouragement and negativity to one that is open to creating meaningful,
rewarding work that relies on your strengths. Shifting your mindset is a process that takes several steps and deliberate action.
