Revisited — Beyond Burnout With Dr. Lesley Tate-Gould
In this revisited episode of Beyond the Balance Sheet, we are speaking with Dr. Lesley Tate-Gould, Co-founder and Executive Director of Lido Wellness Center (LWC). She was inspired to open LWC after becoming aware of the gaps in residential treatment facilities for adults and adolescents with mental health conditions related to addiction and eating disorders. First, Dr. Tate-Gould shares how LWC differs from other treatment facilities by looking beyond a patient’s external symptoms. The conversation shifts to address how the pursuit of success in our hustle-obsessed culture affects us more than we realize. Listen as Dr. Lesley Tate-Gould talks about a healthier view of success and achievement and the balance our minds and bodies desire. IN THIS EPISODE: * [01:20] Dr. Tate-Gould shares about founding Lido Wellness Center (LWC) * [03:20] What sets LWC apart from other outpatient treatment centers? * [05:40] What is success and how has culture created a toxic environment? * [13:15] What are the effects on the body when we hustle without balance? * [16:24] Dr. Tate-Gould shares her definition of success KEY TAKEAWAYS: * As human beings, we are magnificent in our capacity, but we also require time to quietly reflect, turn inward, and slow down. Our culture has ignored this and emphasizes a “hustle” mentality that disregards the inevitability of burnout. * We cannot be everything at every moment. It's okay to focus on what matters, even if that means pushing pause on something else. It's okay to stop over-scheduling appointments and engagements to appease someone else’s expectations. * Curiosity, creativity, and adventure are at the heart of discovering success.

She was inspired to open LWC following her experience working in residential treatment facilities specializing in addiction and eating disorders for both adults and adolescents. Through her work, she gained a robust knowledge of the complexities of higher care and became aware of the gaps in mental health outpatient treatment, discovering a lack of robust clinical accessibility for addressing underlying mental conditions once substance disorders were addressed. Determined to fill those care gaps, she co-founded LWC as a primary mental health outpatient treatment facility for the local community and patients from treatment programs around the county. Dr. Tate-Gould specializes in mood disturbances, trauma-related disorders, personality disorders, and secondary substance-use and eating disorders. As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), Dr. Tate-Gould engages with patients in new and mindful ways, such as using gentle, intuitive methods to produce enhanced understandings of the physiological components related to trauma. Paired expertly with other treatment modalities, she supports healing by assisting patients in achieving a greater awareness of themselves in a supportive and compassionate environment dedicated, foremost, to improving their health and well-being.In her multiple roles as owner, executive director, and clinician, Dr. Tate-Gould thrives on professional variety and encourages collaboration with her team, allowing the flexibility to incorporate unique perspectives on techniques and healing approaches for LWC patients.

Ned is no stranger to the world of recovery because he has had his fair share of experiences with a transitional living home and has benefited from sobriety and mental health programs.
