A HEALTHY LAWYER
A Sustainable Approach to Depression, Anxiety, Burnout, and Stress.
A Quick Look at Employee Burnout
A recent study in the Employee Engagement Series conducted by Kronos Incorporated and Future Workplace® discovered that employee burnout was one of the biggest threats to the workforce in 2017. The top three leading factors contributing to such high levels of burn out are detailed below.
Too Much Overtime / After-hours Work
Is the A Healthy Lawyer program for you?
- Are you a lawyer, judge, or law student, dealing with anxiety, depression, burnout or extreme stress, who despite your best efforts, can’t seem to make your life work? Do find yourself thinking, I can’t go on, but feel stuck about how to change it?
- Are work demands taking over your life, leaving you exhausted, irritable, critical and disillusioned? Do you have to drag yourself to work, finding it nearly impossible to do your job, and worry that you’re going to destroy everything you’ve worked so hard for? Or, are you too numb and burnt out to see the point in trying anymore?
- Do you find yourself over-drinking, over-eating or engaging in other destructive behaviors to cope with the constant stress of your life? Do you know that you are risking your health, career and relationships, but feel out of control and stuck in a toxic pattern?
- Are you down, or so depressed, that you no longer enjoy things that used to matter? Do you worry that your decision making, focus, and productivity are so impaired that you could make a serious mistake, be passed over for a promotion, or lose your job all together? Are you struggling with whether to be on antidepressants, and needing holistic solutions?
- Do you fall into bed exhausted, but find you can’t sleep because your anxious mind won’t stop racing? Have crippling anxiety and stress hijacked your ability to think straight, or to be present in your life, such that you are missing important deadlines at work, or are unable to enjoy your family even when you are at home?
- Are you isolated, lonely, and afraid to be yourself at work because you don’t know who has your back, and who is out to get you? Does your lack of deep friendship and support cause debilitating self-criticism and doubt, drive you to over-work, or sap the creative energy you need to be successful?

“I hold Dr. Wood in my highest esteem. I’ve been working with her for over two years now. When I first met her, I was struggling with my work as a lawyer, recently separated, taking care of two precocious young children, and worried about money. All of it seemed too much for me, and I was a mess. Today my work is going well, my children are thriving, and I am financially stable. I feel grounded and strong. I don’t believe I’d be doing as well as I am, happy, confident and forward looking, if it weren’t to Dr. Wood’s expert coaching. I enthusiastically recommend her as a coach and trusted partner in realizing your potential.”J. Linden Hagans
“I have known Dr. Eve Wood for twenty-five years. Her wisdom and counsel have been invaluable to me as my life and career as a lawyer progressed over time. She taught me things that no one taught me before, enriching my personal, family, and professional lives.
Eve is a humanist who has many gifts. She is non-judgmental, gentle in manner, direct, sensitive, positive, empowering, and not wedded to one philosophy or magic formula for success. She brings everything she has to the table to work as a one-on-one partner in tackling the work before her.
Her boundaries are strong, she is unwaveringly ethical and principled, and trustworthy, all traits that are imperative in integrative medicine and executive coaching. Eve focuses her attention one hundred percent of the time on the person she is working with. There are no distractions, no interruptions, no phone calls taken. Her only agenda is to use all her skills all the time to help her client grow in discovering and achieving his or her objectives. Eve will hold your soul in her hands and introduce you to your own beauty and gifts where you might not have known them.”Sherry E. Baskin, Esq.

“I first met Eve when she joined the medical staff of the hospital I worked at serving as the Chief Medical Officer. She immediately impressed me with her intellect, passion, leadership, spirit and desire to provide great patient care and help people. But what impressed me most about her was her heart. Here was a physician, a woman who genuinely cared. I have seen her pursue care for patients that is truly lifesaving. I have been honored to work with her for the last few years and am certain that any endeavor she engages in will be with professionalism, integrity, optimism and most of all, heart. Eve is the type of person that, when I saw her name on my calendar, I would think to myself “Good, I get to see Eve today”. Whether you engage Eve as a coach, consultant or physician colleague, I am certain you will be pleased that you made the decision to connect with her. I recommend Dr. Wood to you with my highest recommendation.”Thomas R. Drake MD
