I have come to feel strongly, after spending years working in the ER, that I want to provide for people beyond the ER paradigm. What I love about being a doctor is helping people become more healthy and easing distress. This interaction is rewarding, but focused on treating the symptoms rather than the root causes.
I now want to also support people from a more holistic perspective. So, I have spent the last year of my life immersed first in wellness and nutrition certification, and now in an intensive leadership and coach training program. I am already working with clients as a coach, and plan on making coaching a large part of my career.
Doctors focus on fixing problems. As a coach, I don’t focus on “fixing people and their problems”. I support my clients with specific tools and guidance to find their answers and power from within themselves, to create the life they really want, with a focus on achieving optimum balance and wellbeing.
To me, wellbeing means having all aspects of your life in alignment. It happens when your relationships - with others, yourself, career, spirituality, and involvement in community - all support your goals and values.
My focus is on helping my clients overcome the barriers that prevent them from becoming their best selves. In doing this, I guide my clients to be the creators in achieving their life goals, whether it’s a career change, achieving greater productivity, creating more fulfilling relationships, or generating work-life balance. Life is more fun and fulfilling when you create it, rather than “letting life happen to you”.
Where do you see gaps in your life between where you are and where you want to be? I can support you in closing those gaps.
I am eager to work with new clients. If you or anyone you know is interested in what coaching could provide, please reach out, I would love to hear from you.
