We will walk through a three-phase process that will strip away the rust and plug you into your “personal power”.
How We Help...
Modern medical training, with a few exceptions, is demoralizing, damaging and disempowering. If you graduated from medical school, nursing school, pharmacy school, etc. you likely suffered moderate to significant trauma. The distress you feel is not your fault. I’ll help you understand that you are not broken or flawed…rather you are reacting in an expected way to a bad situation. This is the first phase.
Once you conceptualize your situation in a healthier and more accurate way, you can begin to heal. This involves systematically processing your various wounds and taking the power from them and transferring it back to you. This is the second phase.
Now is when the fun begins! By this point you will have begun to see glimpses of the awesome person you remember from years gone by. You will have gotten a taste of personal power and said, “give me more of that”. You will begin to see improvements in your attitude, mood, relationships and other areas of your life. You will be you…just better.
I use the generic term “healer” to describe any person who uses their education, training and talents to improve the life of another person in some way. These include, but are not limited to, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, dentists, chiropractors, veterinarians, and anyone else who considers themselves a “healthcare professional”.
If you heal people in any way…you are a healer!
My work with “healers” has shown me that those who are attracted to a career in healthcare make that choice for a combination of three reasons. I call these “help”, “challenge” and “peace”.
Help – You truly wanted to help people and make a real difference in their lives. Healing ill and damaged bodies was an obvious choice that you were sure would satisfy you.
Challenge – Statistically, you are among the brightest 2% of the population. You became a healer to put your talents to the test. You wanted to do something large and contribute in a big way.
Peace – The lifestyle that was promised to accompany becoming a healthcare professional was very attractive to you. You believed this would allow you to enjoy a higher standard of living and afford you freedom to focus on other priorities, such as family.
Now that you are in your chosen field (or maybe still in training), how much of these original goals have come true?
If you are like most healers I work with, working in healthcare is nothing like what you expected. You are likely very unhappy. You may be considering leaving the field altogether. You may be suffering from some pretty serious mental health challenges. You may have even considered taking your own life.
Please know that you CAN practice your profession and enjoy all the benefits that attracted you originally.
Hi! My name is Clay. I’m a father and a husband…and I’m a healer.
I’m actually a lot like the people who come to Health Healer. I help people, particularly healers, move from where they are to where they want to be. And I’ve had my own struggles. For a while I didn’t know if I was going to make it or not. But, with the help of some very kind and endlessly patient people, I started to get better.
Now I help others do the same.
As you might have guessed, I’m the name and face behind Healthy Healer. I work with clients in my office in Peachtree City, GA. Historically, my focus has been on addictive diseases.
In fact, I worked at the world-famous Talbott Recovery Campus, which is where I first treated physicians. I saw, first hand, the devastation that can come from working in healthcare.
Eventually I realized that, while many physicians and other healthcare professionals deal with their difficult situations with drugs and alcohol, many other self-destructive behaviors can be in play as well. Sometimes the distress shows up as Depression, Anxiety, hyper-stress, anger, apathy, or broken relationships.
If any of these situations sound like you, please know you can get better. Call me and we’ll decide if we are a good fit to work together.
"Clay is a great counselor! He's seriously helping me with my addiction and anxiety issues. I'm really grateful for his great advice and wisdom."
"My meetings with Clay have contributed to immense positive change in my life. If you are on the fence about talking to someone about the issues you face or can't decide who you may want to see, reach out to him. He was a perfect fit for me and really approaches problems with an open mind and a "real world" perspective!"
"Clay is my answered prayer! If you're looking for a safe place to figure things out, this is where you need to be! Clay's the best!"
"I attend for counceling services for myself, and most of what I seek is guidance and second opinions. I have been given exactly that, as well as a new perspective, and an internal way of finding the happiness I seek."
