What is Coaching?

Therapy is evaluating your past to understand where you are in the present.  Coaching is assessing your present and taking action toward your future.  Essentially, coaches help clients improve their performance in any area of their life.

Common topics that are addressed by coaching: burnout, impostor syndrome, perfectionism, work flow and efficiency, work-life balance, career transition, exhaustion, loneliness, relationships, health, and many more.



Physician wellness coaching – peer to peer - is on the cutting edge of addressing physician burnout, a state of physical or emotional exhaustion that also involves a sense of reduced accomplishment and loss of personal identity. It has been shown to improve resiliency, job satisfaction, goal attainment and even patient satisfaction scores.  


My style of coaching is forward-facing and solutions-focused.  I work to understand your thought process and then develop ways specifically designed for you to manage your mind and impact your emotions and actions. 


Physicians are motivated, creative and brilliant problem solvers.  I use these strengths to guide you as we work toward a healthier, happier overall life experience.  We meet regularly for 50 minute sessions while addressing your concerns and goals.


While Life Coaching can help you manage the psychological stressors of life and find ways to restore a sense of balance, it goes hand-in-hand with physical wellbeing. It is critical that you have a trusted physician of your own to ensure your body is being cared for as much as your mind.
