Meet Tim, Developer Wellbeing Advocate

With over 25 years as a software developer and a Master’s Degree in Computer Science, I understand firsthand the intense pressures and mental health challenges coders face. After burning out in the high-stress startup world, I pursued a career in counseling to help provide customized mental health support for developers.

My expertise in the coding world allows me to “speak your language” and quickly grasp the nuances of your work experience. I can relate on a personal level to the specific issues you encounter, like extreme deadline stress, information overload, and poor work-life balance.

Our clients are…

  • Tech professionals seeking healthier work-life harmony and reduced stress.
  • Skilled coders aiming to remain relevant, valued, and supported over the long haul.
  • Engineers wanting to enhance mental well-being and prevent burnout.
  • Developers looking to manage demands sustainably and avoid exhaustion.
  • IT specialists longing for greater fulfillment and appreciation beyond daily tasks.
  • Dedicated individuals ready to invest in personal growth and work-life balance.

And want to…

  • Put an end to constant stress and exhaustion resulting from unrealistic work demands.
  • Stop feeling undervalued and regain a sense of purpose in their work.
  • Move away from being defined solely by technical skills and be recognized as whole individuals.

Weekends and time off became your recharge time, greeting each Monday renewed and resilient.

Imagine if you built a circle of colleagues who appreciate your humanity as much as your technical skills. Your voice would be valued, your experience acknowledged. Imagine if you handled workplace stress with steady calm, practiced self-care without shame, and treated yourself with the same compassion you share with customers.
