Prioritize therapy every time! It’s an investment you do in yourself and your health should always come first!! I regularly have meetings that class with my project’s (including client meetings) but I tell my teams that I have a doctor’s appointment. That usually does the trick (eg my manager will cover for me). To be honest, I would say I had therapy if push came to shove. We have a big focus on mental health in the company and I’m not ashamed to say that COVID has taken a toll on me and many of our mental healths. I think you should be proud of yourself for going :) Ive been going to therapy on and off for nearly 10 years now and it’s the best money and time I have every spent :)

Continue to schedule your recurring therapy appt! For me, I prefer first thing in morning and would grab the 9 window.

The therapist has limited availability, all of which seem to conflict with my new project’s meeting times.

Either you work with a new therapist or stick to your commitment of having your therapy sessions during the work day. I know you likely don’t want to find another therapist so talk with your lead to see if it’s ok for you to one meeting every now and again. I’m all for prioritizing therapy sessions so I’m hoping your lead will be understanding.

At what level can you call yourself an “executive”? M? SM? Partner? It seems like the adjective is used a lot (executive assistant, executive floor, executive session), but I don’t know what it means
