Coaching Philosophy

I work with family physician residents and faculty to help them enjoy life and thrive in their chosen careers through a systematic program with critical tools and personalized coaching.

Burnout is real, and too many family physicians are miserable in their careers and wanting to leave after all the blood, sweat, tears, time, and money. System changes are beginning but will take time. I give physicians the tools they need early in their careers to decrease unnecessary suffering and maximize their time and energy so they can enjoy wholeness in integrating work and life now. By teaching them to take back their agency, I also help them approach the systems with clean mindsets to advocate for change in a way to be heard and choose their best paths forward. In addition to coaching residents, I am passionate that faculty need relief from burnout so they can fully engage and enjoy the impact they're making in future generations of medicine and model career and life fulfillment for their trainees.
