How This Doctor Helps Women Physicians Go from Surviving to Thriving With Dr. Jeannie Lawrence

How This Doctor Helps Women Physicians Go from Surviving to Thriving With Dr. Jeannie Lawrence

Did you know that the suicide rate of women physicians is 130% higher than that of the general population? Physicians hold the highest rate of suicide compared to any other profession. Being high functioning people and showing up for work like physicians keeps people from noticing that sometimes they need help and dolefully fall deep into high functioning depression.

In this episode, I speak to Dr. Jeannie Lawrence, a Psychiatrist, Psychotherapist, life coach, blogger, and owner of a coaching program for Women Physicians. Through her vulnerable and transparent writings, she empowers individuals, with and without mental illness, to take charge of their emotional health with education and evidence-based practices shown to improve the human experience of life. She shares some of her disempowered moments in Medicine and why she even opted to walk away from the field and venture into cosmetics and interior design.

In a nutshell, we talk about

  • Why Dr. Lawrence ventured into Psychotherapy and Psychiatry.
  • How EntreMD Business School helped Dr. Lawrence activate her potential during her fight with depression and anxiety.
  • Dr. Lawrence's journey to getting empowered and regaining her steps after thinking about walking away from the Medical field
  • High functioning depression and how to get over it.
  • How Dr. Lawrence established her private practice, a coaching program just for women physicians
  • The most rewarding thing as far as emotion mastery in women and taking care of women is concerned.
  • Dr. Lawrence's thoughts on the prevalence of depression among medical professionals.

...and so much more…!
