THERAPY FOR MEDICAL STUDENTS

You are in medical school and feeling all the pressures of enrolling in the medical field, and it is challenging to navigate this new life and career, as it is becoming increasingly difficult to do so, causing you to have anxiety and depression symptoms. You worry about being a good medical professional and what that could mean for you and your family. You fear letting your family down because they are so proud of you, and that creates pressure to perform at your best, leaving you feeling anxious and affecting your performance in school and your studies which affects your self-esteem and confidence in yourself.  You experience anxiety around your patients because of your fears and worries about not being a good medical professional, and worry about not knowing how to take care of people in pain, leaving you feeling sad, questioning yourself constantly about whether or not you made the right decision choosing this profession. You get nervous during tests, unsure of yourself, and feel overwhelmed with everything you have to do. 

At Modern Intervention Strategies, we help medical professionals reconnect with their passion for medicine, feel present within themselves, to discover and develop unstoppable confidence without feeling pressured to do and be all things.

You want to speak with someone who can help sort out your thoughts and fears and make you feel heard and understood.

We get it. You want to feel good about your medical school journey without feeling paralyzed by fear or doubt or the weight of the world on your shoulders. You want a space to discuss challenging feelings and emotions that make you feel stressed out, overwhelmed, and unsure about your path. You find yourself overthinking a lot, losing sleep, and second-guessing everything. You are not sure if you want to keep going through the program, or have realized that you are not sure if you could do all that medicine entails, and having to go through it is making you question yourself, your preparedness, and it’s leaving you with a lot of doubt and pressure that you are feeling from all over even your family.

Not seeking therapy while in medical school has the potential for you to feel disappointed in your field of choice due to being exposed to vicarious trauma while dealing with your trauma, making you feel let down and blaming yourself when things do not go as planned, which would affect your self-esteem and confidence and this has the potential of disrupting your ability to render your best care to your patients. It is important that your mental health is prioritized in order to be an impactful medical professional for your patients. 

What you can look forward to during and after working with us.
