Would coaching be of benefit to you?
You are a female physician who feels overworked and overwhelmed. You are being pulled in many different directions.
You are starting to feel like you cannot be the great doctor, partner, or mother you truly are.
You are finding less and less joy in the work you do and/or in your personal life.
You feel that those aspects of your work that used to give you satisfaction are nearing extinction, due to forces around you over which you have no control.
You may be on the verge of burnout.
You may be considering or trying to respond to a major change—a job change, a location change, a new relationship, a birth, a new creation, a death, a transition—such as menopause or pregnancy. You may be letting go or creating something new, or you may feel stuck somewhere in between. You would benefit from the support of another woman who holds your most important values dear and your ultimate life agenda precious. You are seeking clarity, unbent vision, different possibilities and perspectives. You’re ready to go from a micro-focus to panoramic, ready to stand grounded in the present and look forward, rather than back.
You may have some great ideas but have difficulty choosing among them, instituting them, or taking action. You would benefit from having someone who tunes into your highest values, holds you accountable, and keeps you “on task”—someone who will champion you and challenge you, at the same time.
You are seeking fulfillment and are willing to make decisions based on what you truly value and what is most important to you.
You are whole, resourceful, and wise. You have your own best solutions and would benefit from help accessing them.
You are interested in creating wellness in all areas of your life—not only the physical, but the emotional, relational, and spiritual aspects as well. You are looking for transformative soul prescriptions.
What are my unique gifts that I offer to you?
I bring to you over thirty years experience of working in both holistic and conventional medicine, of witnessing and understanding the life transitions common to women, from menstrual cycle changes to pregnancy, to perimenopause, menopause, aging, loss, and new creations. I have walked this path with thousands of women and have experienced many of these transitions personally. This places me in a unique position to understand the multiple factors that face women in our society today, and the special challenges we face in courageously creating health and balance in a society that is grossly out of balance. I will bring my unique experiences, training, and wisdom to you through non‐medical realms, while supporting your self‐discovery, inner wisdom, and empowerment during the often difficult and complex changes that you are called to make in your unique and meaningful life.
Additionally, I have a background in psychology and am a certified Holoenergetics TM practitioner.
I also have a unique understanding of the experiences of healthcare practitioners and doctors, both in the conventional world (many years experience working in a large HMO setting) and the holistic world (former colleague of Dr. Christiane Northrup). I understand the unique difficulties you face in the dance of "work‐life balance." I also have direct experience in creating a unique work situation within an environment that follows a different script and have assisted many others in doing the same.
I have traveled to Greece for over twenty years and lived there for two. I have an appreciation and understanding of the (sometimes stark) differences between our American way of life and that of other countries. I also have an understanding of the imbalances that exist in our structures that affect our fulfillment and wellness.
I look forward to accompanying you for this part of your unique and wonderful journey.
