What is Coaching? (you might be asking yourself)
Being coached means:
You are ready to change something (or everything) in your life
You want help to do this
Having someone who comes along side you, listens, helps you identify your needs and your goals, explores possibilities and, occasionally, gives you a nudge forward.
Accountability, encouragement and digging into areas you never considered
Coaching is NOT therapy but it instead focuses on you discovering your answers within yourself.
(Want to hear about my experience, check out THIS BLOG about it!)
you’re a burnout coach and I’m not burnt out
My answer to you would be, “But I bet you realizing that ‘stuff ain’t right’?”
Coaching is still for you!! It will help you jump start into some serious ass kickin’ and making action on those goals you have.
With your coaching, we’ll zero in on where you are stuck, what is holding you back and work towards your next steps forward.
Have you said, “I’m just so stuck!”
Because I can help!
My friends joked and called me "Wonder Woman" because they couldn't understand how I kept it all together, husband, children, medical training/practice, housework, laundry, on and on and on. Well, to be honest, anyone can only juggle all this for so long before plates start to slip and fall!
I experienced burnout as a physician HARD. Retrospectively, I was "crispy to the core." My soul was discouraged and dissatisfied with my career as an outpatient family medicine physician. So many nights I thought to myself, "How am I going to keep doing this for 30 more years?" or "Did I really push through med school and residency just for this?"
My family didn't understand.
My non-medical friends didn't understand.
My med school best friends and I would vent to each other and try to give support but we were all feeling it.
So, now, I want to be support for you because down to my core, I FREAKING UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE AT!!! I coach other women through burnout and get them discovering the lives they are suppose to be living instead of juggling the life they thought they were suppose to live. I can help you change your life because I've walked that path and now I'm on the other side booty shakin' dancing!!
why coach with me
Accountability - I can provide you with peer to peer accountability by supporting you not just to think about making changes but spurring you towards change.
Fierceness - I’m not going to let you say the “right” words then not follow through. I will show up for you both to support you and call you on your own head shit.
Confidentiality & Trustworthiness - Because I'm an independent contractor, I provide you with the highest privacy. The only information disclosed is what you want. Coaching does not fall under mandatory reporting to state licensing boards.
Understanding - Not only am I a licensed physician and trained coach, I'm still practicing medicine on the front lines. If I can do it, so can you!
Experience - I am passionate about burnout and coaching others through it because I have walked the walk. Now that I have come through my own journey of burnout, I've "businessed up" by getting coach training, Women in Medicine leadership training, Clear Coaches Select courses, and numerous webinars and CME events focused around doing medicine better.
Resourceful - In order to better navigate medicine, I love collecting research, latest studies and networking with other in order to gain strength in numbers. I pass this knowledge onto my clients by discussing specific topics like attending/leading meetings well, how to handle double standards with medicine, how to write a resignation letter and more.
Supportive - I am in your corner and want to go over and beyond to boost you.
Strong Boundaries - These is one that may surprise you that I list it but I know that it is an advantage! I will show up and give you everything I've got during our time together but I WILL also maintain my own sustainability and I will encourage you to do the same.
