Mental Health is something that shouldn’t be sacrificed for the sake of success; being a high achieving professional, a full-time parent, a student, or all of the above can take its toll on your mind and body. A number of ailments can actually be caused by burnout and poor mental health which can put more stress on your body. Managing stress is a lifelong journey, and taking care of your mind and body is not optional.

Dr. Tomi Mitchell is a board-certified family practice physician and wellness coach as well as the owner of Holistic Wellness Strategies. Her platform is used to shed light on the pain points that people face. This includes, but is not limited to: lack of self-care, poor self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and self-doubt. Her practice has an approach to mental wellness that can help eradicate these issues. The wellness wheel is a circular chart that shows the various effects of different environments and how those play a role in our mental health. The wheel begins clockwise with emotional, physical, environmental, financial, spiritual, intellectual, occupational, and ends with social. These segments of the wheel connect us with ourselves, our environment, others, and our purpose. This is what truly makes us feel healthier, more capable, and resilient to outside negativity and troubles.
Our lives are meant to be enriching, fulfilling, and healing to our mind, body, and spirit, and Dr. Mitchell is one to guide and challenge her patients gently to activate change and new ways of thinking. “My methods are personally used; I have been in the same places that my patients have been in. I had to overcome so many challenges in my life, and it was injurious to my mental health. Being told from an early age and into adulthood that I wasn’t any good really weighed on me, especially when it comes from people who were supposed to be teaching and encouraging me. I worked hard to prove myself, definitely pushing myself to the brink of exhaustion. After years of damaging self-sacrifice, guilt, and the weight of traumatic experiences, I had to find change, what I truly wanted, and who I was. I encourage my patients to practice self care because you cannot pour from an empty cup,” Dr. Mitchell says.
“When you’re feeling burnt out, no longer sure of your purpose, struggling with stress, anxiety, low self esteem and depression, but still putting a front that you have it all together, this is where I can help. I have been there and have overcome it. When you’re trying too hard to be the perfect parent-spouse-professional and you’re tired of trying to figure out how to be your “best self”, you need to seek help,” Dr. Mitchell encourages.
Dr. Mitchell loves to help people managing burnout without purpose, find their way. “I was once one of those people, but things are so much better now and I want to help others that have been in similar situations.” Career-driven people with families that want to rebalance and shift their responsibilities into something fulfilling is possible. “I wasn’t always the most energetic, highly intelligent, passionate woman you see today. I started out running multiple businesses, balancing being a wife and mom, and trying to achieve many things at once to a depressing level. Anyone can make this positive change and I can help every step of the way.”
Self-care is an act of love for yourself. You don’t have to be alone in your journey and that’s why Dr. Mitchell does what she does. She coaches and cares about her clients so that their success is inevitable. Book a group or online session at Holistic Wellness Strategies today.
