A message from psychotherapist and founder, Chelsy Castro:

As a psychotherapist, I work with you to apply science-backed counseling techniques to help you shift your mindset. I am not the sage sitting atop a mountain waiting for you to achieve your transformation. I am the guide walking alongside you, equipping you with the tools and guidance you need for your journey. I walk the walk with you.


Tailored to the Chronic High Achiever

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 feel 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. I specialize in helping lawyers and other high achievers overcome the barriers keeping  them from reaching their goals. As a former lawyer, I get it. As a therapist specializing in lawyer and high achiever well-being, I know how to tailor science-based solutions to help get you to “better.”
