Workplace Therapy kicks off this Women’s History Month

It’s Women’s History Month and there’s a pressing issue affecting countless women: burnout.

Burnout can manifest as overwhelming fatigue, emotional exhaustion and a sense of detachment from your own life. The relentless juggling act of managing multiple responsibilities, often as both caregivers and professionals, can leave women feeling depleted and devoid of the energy needed to nurture their own well-being. This emotional strain often seeps into relationships, diminishing the capacity for meaningful connections and amplifying feelings of isolation and disillusionment.

Professionally, the impact of burnout is equally profound. Women often face systemic barriers in the workplace, including gender biases, unequal opportunities for advancement, and the burden of disproportionate caregiving responsibilities. Not to mention the feeling of being overworked and underpaid due to increases in work responsibilities without an increase in pay or title following the great resignation. The relentless pursuit of perfectionism, coupled with the fear of falling short, can erode confidence and self-worth, contributing to a cycle of burnout that undermines professional performance and stifles career growth.

Indeed, research cited by CNBC underscores the challenges women face in the workplace and beyond. Despite their contributions, women are less likely to be promoted than men, often juggling more responsibilities and being the go-to for all the things — factors that can exacerbate burnout and strain mental health.

With over 20 years of experience in the health care industry, I hear the same thing over and over from my female colleagues and clients: “I’m tired. I often put myself last, yet I’m undervalued, underpaid and have so much more to offer.” It’s what inspired me to create Workplace Therapy, an empowering women’s conference that addresses the multifaceted challenges impacting women’s mental health both inside and outside the workplace. Born out of a combination of my own professional and personal experiences, as a career-driven working mother of three, Workplace Therapy is launching during this crucial month at A Moment in Time Events in Lake Las Vegas on March. 23.

With a focus on providing strategies and insights to combat common stressors such as limiting beliefs, perfectionism and burnout, Workplace Therapy will offer a platform for women to engage with top wellness and business experts. From understanding the importance of maintaining a growth mindset to establishing reliable routines and learning the power of seeking help, attendees will gain actionable steps to foster balance amidst the demands of work and home life.

The lineup of speakers and panelists at Workplace Therapy reflects a diverse range of expertise and experience, offering attendees valuable insights and practical advice. Notable figures such as celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton and acclaimed business expert, Linda Johansen-James, will contribute their perspectives on professional development and well-being.

At its core, Workplace Therapy recognizes the interconnectedness of women’s well-being and their professional and personal lives. By addressing common issues impacting mental health, this event aims to foster resilience, transformation, and the pursuit of one’s fullest potential.

For those interested in participating in this event, tickets are available starting at $199 per person. Visit for more details and to secure your spot.
