Anybody have tips on how to see a therapist if you’re expected in the office 5 days a week and there’s nowhere private to take a Zoom?

Own your balance. Tell them you have an appointment and go to your car. Prioritize yourself.

You can do it during a lunch break window and grab lunch on the way back to eat at your desk or you can just let your manager know you have PT if you need regularly recurring sessions and lunch hour doesn't work

When I legitimately had to leave work for PT once a week my PT guy only had available during office hours 🤷‍♂️ your fake excuse could be my real experience haha

Put it on your calendar as a recurring appointment that shows you as OOO. If you want, tell your manager you have a standing weekly medical appointment at that time. What you’re doing isn’t anyone’s business.

This, + try to get a standing appointment that is at the beginning or end of the day, so you can condition people to know that “on tuesdays (eg), Bob doesn’t come in until 9:30/leaves at 4.”

You can take a session on weekends. I know a therapist who specifically books sessions on weekends for working professionals. If you need details, let me know.

I would do it in the car, if you're thinking people may listen then drive somewhere with a lot and park in no mam's land. If you don't have a car, you may be able to ask HR for assistance.

Can you ask to work from home one day? I know I’m sometimes a wreck after a session so can’t imagine having to go into office after that

Not therapy related, but when I had to pump and the client didn’t have a mother’s room (or it was occupied) I’d do it in my car.

How should I approach an ominous zoom appointment with supervisinpartner and managing partner? I’m a 3rd year associate. This is a new job, my first day was the first day the whole firm worked from home. It’s also much more challenging and demanding than my previous firm, which is what I wanted, but I haven’t been able to dive in and face the challenge the way I had planned to because I’m really struggling with working from home, both logistically and psychologically....

I’d like to start a female only network group. I’m thinking it can be virtual, maybe meet in a small group via zoom once a month so everyone is meeting with different people every month. Maybe a google doc with the type of work the person does and their contact info. No fees, just women lifting other women up. Any Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Thanks!! I’ve never joined a network group before, so I’m sure there are details I haven’t even thought of.

My CEO is literally *always* on Slack. 5 am? Online. 11 pm? Online. Saturday, Sunday, holidays? Online. I know I’m not really expected to work around the clock (though I often do), but having him never, ever not be online is stressing me out. How do y’all deal with this? Just put it out of your mind?

Not really sure what board is proper for this. But has anyone had an experience where your boss required paperwork for a raise? I started my job as an account manager at a less than reasonable salary, but I was under the impression that I would be able to grow and would have help. A lot of work is dumped on me at one time and all the responsibility falls to me, it's often way to much work for one person. I tried to negotiate a raise with my boss and lead with the fact that I was moving to the area and the salary was not conducive to rent here. He cut me off after my first point and said he'd figure it out. I never got to tell him about my workload. Long story short he required a lease agreement for me to get this raise. It took quite a while to get one... had a few places fall through. My landlord is in the middle of moving so was only able to forward me a PDF of the document that was unsigned, until she has time to meet. Now my boss wants a signed lease with all my roommates signatures too. This is not part of the contract I signed that simply says "provide a lease agreement"... tips?

any one can refer me in wipro. I have job id also.
