Master your psychology with therapeutic insights for your life, relationships, & career

Top-performers seem like they have it all. They’re…

  • Highly motivated & Ambitious
  • Smart & Educated
  • Striving to be the best in all areas of their life

But the unspoken secret is that on the inside many of them feel like they’re:

  • Constantly taking on way too much
  • Always making sacrifices
  • Fighting a losing battle against self-doubt and unhappiness

The truth is that these thoughts are natural, and if you feel that despite all of your accomplishments you’re still not at peace with yourself, you’re not alone.

Unfortunately there is a flipside to success that can deeply affect the types of women who are always trying to achieve more. The emotional intelligence and ambition that often give them their edge can unfortunately also lead them to feel an increased sense of self-doubt and sabotages them from fully enjoying their achievements.

Sometimes they feel like they’re just on an incredible string of luck and are constantly afraid that their next project will be the failure that exposes them as a fraud (Imposter Syndrome). Others worry that with each new accomplishment what they’ve achieved is too good to be true and it’s going to come crashing down sooner rather than later (Upper Limit Problem). Or their success is overshadowed by baggage from dysfunctional relationships and negative patterns that follow them into the office.

Your success doesn’t have to be a source of suffering.

The good news is that many women have overcome the emotional challenges that come with success. I’m Melody, and as a licensed therapist I’ve found my calling helping women like you put an end to the cycles of guilt and unhappiness that hold you back from a lasting and balanced feeling of fulfillment.

What would it mean for you if you could fully enjoy your next promotion or achievement, instead of immediately worrying about whether you’re going to live up to the additional responsibility? How much more could you do each day if you were fully engaged instead of having the complications of a rocky relationship constantly dividing your attention? Don’t you deserve to be confident and content instead of always comparing yourself to others and feeling like you don’t measure up?

If you’re ready to break away from your self-destructive behaviors, I’d love to help you out. Subscribe to my email list for practical, weekly guidance to help you master your psychology using therapeutic insights for your life, relationships, & career.

  1. How to Move on After a Job Rejection

    How to move on after job rejection

    The resume that goes off into the online application ether.

    The call for a second interview that never comes.

    The rejection letter from your dream job that hits you like a ton of bricks.

    No matter what stage you are at in the job search process, it’s likely that rejection has reared its ugly head in your direction. Being turned down for a role you really want is never fun, and it sure can tank your confidence.

    And when you’re down in the dumps and vulnerable, disappointment can quickly spiral into a full-blown pity party. I often see clients who dwell on receiving a “no” from a prospective employer, beating themselves up and categorically slotting themselves as a failure all-around. But the truth is, thinking that rejection has ruined you not only feels miserable, it also holds you back from any future chance at success.

    A better way to handle rejection? Operating with a resilient mindset. Resiliency involves meeting challenges or setbacks with a constructive approach and focusing on the opportunities created when things don’t go as planned. Resilient people keep a positive, adaptable attitude when thrown curveballs. To become resilient, you must understand that success and rejection go hand-in-hand, and that you simply cannot advance if you always play it safe.

    If you’re stuck in a rejection rut, here are four ways to feel better—and kick your job search back into gear.

    1. Realize it’s Inherently in Your Programming

    Rejection weighs so heavily precisely because our brains are hardwired to pay more attention to negative events than positive ones.

    4 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Entrepreneurial Success (And How to Stop)

    You’re a young entrepreneur who eats, sleeps, and breathes your business – yet, all too often you feel stuck and frustrated.

    As a business owner, you’ve chosen to carve your own path and be the one responsible for your success. But do you ever wish that sometimes you could just get out of your own way?

    What you might not realize is that specific, unconscious behaviors may be stalling you and holding you back.

    Here are 4 bad habits to ditch to stop sabotaging your entrepreneurial success and tips for demolishing inertia:

    1. Saying “I can’t”

    When you say “I can’t”, are you saying you don’t have the skill to do something? Or are you really saying you don’t want to do something? Nine times out of ten we fling around the phrase “I can’t” when we fear failure or lack the will to step up to the plate. Your words shape your reality, and every time you say “I can’t” you’re limiting yourself and allowing fear to win.

    But if you begin changing your language, your behavior will follow. Try looking at “I can’t” as the signal for an opportunity to learn and improve a skill. For example: “I can’t understand why this campaign is performing poorly, so I’m going to survey our customers.” Also, start subbing in “I won’t” or “I’m not going to…” when you want to more assertively and confidently communicate when you’ve made a decision: “I’m not going to that meeting tonight.”
