1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
My name is Natalie Christine Dattilo. I have a PhD in clinical & health psychology. I am the owner and president of Priority Wellness Group and currently live in Boston, MA. I am also the incoming Director of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston.
2.What is your business about?
Priority Wellness is a women’s health psychology practice. We offer psychological treatment and health coaching for individuals using a mind-body approach as well as consulting for companies and healthcare organisations interested in supporting the mental health and wellness needs of their employees.
3. What made you get into this line of business?
I have always been curious about human behaviour and why people do what they do, so studying psychology was a natural fit for me. I love helping others better understand themselves and assist them in leading their most productive and happy lives.
4. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
I try to start each day “on my terms,” so to speak, and begin by setting an intention for the day. I usually wake up around 4:30 to workout, meditate, and drink my coffee. It’s hard for me to imagine starting the day any other way. My children are usually up by the time I’m done and I’m a much better mom when I am exercised and caffeinated.
5. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Trust in the process and the results will come. I’m a very goal-oriented person but sometimes tend to focus too much on the outcome and not enough on the process. I’ve learned over time that while the destination is important, the journey is really what matter most.
6. What is a book you would say everyone must read?
There are so many books I love, but the one that I have been recommending lately is “Mindset” by Carol Dweck. It was a game changer for me.
7.Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?
We are currently recruiting participants for online mental resiliency training program called BODYmind Boot Camp. It’s an intensive 6-week, rapid-result, action-oriented, group-based stress-reduction training program designed for women to help manage or prevent symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress and burnout.
8. What One thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
Take a breath and focus on the present moment. I remind myself that everything is as it should be. During difficult times, I challenge myself to find the lesson and be grateful for it.
9. What do you love most about helping others?
I love helping people develop greater self-awareness and insight into themselves and why they do what they do. I love helping people get “unstuck.” The magic happens when they start putting real changes into effect by taking action and experiencing life differently, and in a way that is truly and powerfully fulfilling. I love hearing people’s stories, hearing about their lives, what they overcame, and what they hope to accomplish. Then I love watching them make it happen.
