Hi! My name is Chris McDonald
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor (LCMHCS) in Raleigh, NC. I have 24 years experience in a variety of settings including schools, community mental health and private practice. There have been times in my life where I didn’t k now how I would get through the work week. I felt totally depleted and it took all my energy just to get through the day. I began to question why I went into this profession and began to look at other careers. I was burned out and just wanted my life back. Sound familiar?
From my own experience and working with clients in the healthcare system, I have discovered a trend. The majority that I have seen are burned out, lost their passion, and dread going to work each day. They are just going through the motions without the joy they used to feel. The organizational systems where they work were crushing their spirits and contributing to burnout at alarming rates. I felt that there has to be something that can be done to reach a larger number of Healthcare Professionals than through individual counseling.
I decided to start this podcast to reach more Healthcare Professionals like you to let you know that you are not alone in your concerns. This podcast can address the causes of burnout, prevention, and effective solutions. I plan to include inspiring stories to help bring that spark and passion back into your life. I welcome your input! If there is a topic you would like to see addressed, feel free to message me through the contact page.
