to help people uncover the hidden intergenerational and personal traumas that hold hostage their best work, relationships, and well-being, and effectively heal them with a powerful mind-body methodology.

I refer to mental health in business as the best ROI, because nothing kills the bottom line (or sometimes the business) quite like the inner struggles of employees, teams, and executives. These manifest as stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, conflicts; medical issues triggered or exacerbated by unaddressed emotions and stress, absenteeism, presentism, poor retention and advancement of diverse talent, higher insurance and legal costs, and HR constantly playing defense, mired in managing problem situations. Conversely, exceptional performance is achieved when company cultures support employee mental health, leading to people and business thriving.

Mental health-based short-term disability claims are on the rise, and loss of productivity due to mental health conditions is considerable. Depression alone costs US employers 100 billion annually. According to World Health Organization, depression and anxiety cost the global economy over US $1 trillion per year in lost productivity. At the same time, 35% of managers report having no formal resources to support the employees’ mental health. Without awareness of what creates these problems, how workplace factors may be contributing to them, and how to prevent and skillfully address them, companies inadvertently perpetrate the issues.

Mental health is the biggest hidden threat to as well as the biggest untapped resource for a thriving modern business. Luckily, there are solutions for creating a workplace that fosters the best employee mental health, creating necessary conditions for achieving peak performance and unleashing the full potential of the people and the company.
