I remember thinking
“HOW AM I GOING TO SURVIVE THE NEXT 30 YEARS IN THIS PROFESSION, WHEN I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE HAVING TO LIVE MY LIFE LIKE THIS FOR EVEN ONE MORE DAY?”
I was in my first year of practice and I was ready to quit medicine forever.
I am a board-certified physician and certified life coach who crashed & burned (out) in medicine several
times along the way…but I’m still here.
There are concrete things that I did to get to where I am now (thriving, not just surviving) in my medical career.
It is my mission to help empower every doctor that I can with the same tools that helped me because you have a right to enjoy the life you have worked so hard to create for yourself.
I remember how it felt to spend many sacrificial unfulfilling years “gutting it out” in medical school and residency only to get to the finish line and think to myself “W….T….F? Have I just wasted the best years of my life for this?”
I would cry in the car on my way to work for years. My workday was the alpha and the omega, meaning it felt like it never ended. Work demands were so high that I often would not take any breaks throughout the day. I stayed late, came in early, and still found myself taking work home.
When I did finally have “free” time it was spent thinking about work and worrying excessively if I had made a mistake or if I was good enough to even be there in the first place. I had trouble sleeping and was anxious, exhausted, and worn out.
I was in the active process of quitting medicine forever when I discovered the brilliance and effectiveness of causal life coaching. Working with a life coach Changed. My. Life. I figured out how to enjoy my life again without anything else changing.
It also changed the trajectory of my career and resurrected a sense of purpose that I had not felt since before matriculating through medical school. I was so inspired and passionate about the effectiveness of all that I learned that I decided to become a certified life coach who helps other doctors thrive and not just survive in medicine (and life).
I would love to teach you what has worked so well for me because I know it will help you too. I love coaching doctors who are ready to take back control of their work lives by exploring and addressing the root cause(s) of burnout so they can live with purpose, passion, and pleasure in both their careers and personal lives. It truly is amazing work.
If you wonder how you will survive in medicine, are actively thinking of quitting, or feel like you may be crashing and burning but don’t know what to do, I want you to know that there is hope. I can help you.
