Dr. Tomi Mitchell Brings a New Voice to The Mental Health Crisis


“I help try to make mental health a priority for everyone. We should all do a checkup on a regular basis. I’m a physician but I don’t want to focus on clinical practice any more, as frankly I’m tired of sometimes having to give quick fixes to problems that are much deeper. No I work 1: 1, or in group sessions and I have online courses. Whether you’re stressing over unattainable goals, feeling stuck in a uninspiring career, or just generally feeling overwhelmed and overlooked, I’m here to help.”

Dr. Tomi Mitchell is the owner of Dr. Tomi Mitchell Holistic Wellness Strategies. She’s been a self-employed business owner for 10 years.

As a highly accomplished woman, Dr. Tomi Mitchell has a passion for helping women succeed in every area of life. “I help hard-at-work moms overcome mental and emotional turmoil. I work with people at every stage of their life-with professional women struggling to advance their careers while nurturing their children, relationships and their own health. I love to work with female visionaries looking to free themselves from limiting beliefs and those who are at the brink of physical and emotional burnout.”

“When you’re feeling burnt out and no longer sure of your purpose; when you’re struggling with stress, anxiety, low self esteem and depression, but you’re still putting a front that you have it all together; when you’re trying too hard to be the perfect parent-spouse-professional; when you’re tired of trying to figure out how to be your “best self… that’s when I’m available to serve.”

Dr. Mitchell has been deeply aware of the pain points many people in society have, and has empathy for those struggling with self-care, self esteem, anxiety, depression and so much more. She explains, “This has been a very personal process. I had to overcome so many challenges in my life,and it weighed on my mental health. Being told from an early age, into adulthood, that I wasn’t any good, really weighed on me, especially when it came from people who were supposed to be teaching and encouraging me. I worked hard to prove myself, pushing myself to the brink of exhaustion. My best efforts were not always appreciated, and some people around me expected me to be there for them, whenever they wanted.”

“Even though life happened, I was still held to an extremely high, unrealistic standard, one that wasn’t pushed on all my peers. I found myself not being listened to, being gaslighted and received poor care in the healthcare system, a system that I had made an oath to serve. There were good people , that I encountered in healthcare, but the saying , “one bad apples spoils a whole bunch “ rang true. Multiple traumatic experiences from less than ideal medical treatment, coupled with my frustration of working so hard for everyone else at the expense of my physical and mental health, led me to a breakdown.”

“This led to frustration and anger, and I realized that I needed to stop, reflect, take care of myself, and rediscover who I was, and what I really wanted. I had to let go of the guilt associated with finally putting myself first. I encourage my clients to do this in a healthy way as well. This doesn’t’ mean that you’re being selfish, because you can’t pour from an empty cup.”

Dr. Tomi Mitchell rose to her position as a respected self-help authority when she assessed her talents, skills, and passions and realized that she wasn’t using them to her full potential, and wasn’t living a truly authentic life.

“Success is a journey, not destination. There will be ups and downs. This might be challenging, but it builds character and resilience. Success is the continued pursuit of excellence, and integrity, despite challenges.”
