Benefits of Therapists for Lawyers in New York City
New York City attorneys are faced with two distinctive challenges that can lead to intense depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions:
First, the legal profession itself, with its late night hours, binary measurements of success, high intensity arguments, and sometimes difficult clientele is going to put lawyers in a position where depression and anxiety are more common, and where it is more difficult to take the time for self-care.
Second, New York City is already one of the most stressful places in the world for those working in the legal world. It can be cutthroat here, from a business and financial perspective, and so many of the lawyers that live in Brooklyn and NYC experience more stress with their career than those in other regions.
Psychotherapy is one of the best ways to address these issues. It can also make you a better lawyer. Learning valuable skills, including stress management, how to maintain a better work/life balance, how to respond to setbacks, and more, can not only improve your quality of life – they can also help you focus, help you sleep, improve memory, and potentially improve your ability to take on the challenges that come from being a lawyer.
