Do you feel stuck?
Are you feeling trapped, overwhelmed or unfulfilled in your work or your whole life? Have you been wanting to make changes for a while?
If you’re like many of the people I work with, you’re struggling to enjoy your work or may no longer enjoy it at all. You feel more and more stressed and irritable, and that stress is starting to spill over into your personal life.
It may be that it’s time for you to transition to a new job or career. I have helped many people navigate this type of change, and would be happy to help guide and support you through it.
On the other hand, if the root of your problem is simply excess work stress and/or burnout, the best approach may be to make key changes to both your work life and your personal life. There are multiple factors, both work-related and personal, that influence the amount of stress and distress you experience.
We would first work together on identifying the key issues are that are negatively impacting your situation. Next, we actively implement the most important, realistic, evidence-based changes that can help you to thrive and feel more fulfilled by your work (and your life) again.
If you’d like to work with me, your first step is to complete my confidential Pre-Coaching Questionnaire which you’ll find at this link.
You’ll receive a personal response from me in 1-2 business days.
I too have felt (and been) stuck in my career and my life.
I know what it’s like to suffer from poor health, low energy, high stress and eat way too much ice cream and cake to try to cope with it all. I have experienced terrible job burnout. I have also successfully transitioned my work life, building a business and career based on work that I love, that feels powerfully purposeful, fulfilling and meaningful.
I’ve had the great privilege of having major media recognize my work as a coach – I’ve coached people live in studio on The Ricki Lake Show, given coaching advice for readers of Cosmopolitan magazine, advised on healthy success on The Today Show (hint: it’s not how our achievement-crazed society would describe success), and been an Embrace Life Expert Coach for Reader’s Digest Best Health, among many other media outlets.
I have used in my own life, and still use, the same principles I’d love to share with you.
I’d love to help you and cheer you on as you make critical changes and long-overdue improvements to multiple different areas of your life, to be your cheerleader and your biggest fan!
People often ask me how I’m different from other coaches. Here’s my answer:
The work we will do together is richer and deeper than a traditional coaching process. In addition to being a coach I act as an expert consultant to help you more effectively implement change. (please note: even though I’m a medical doctor, working with me as your coach does not establish a doctor-patient relationship of any kind; I act as a coach, not a doctor, in this capacity and do not give medical advice. I will always direct you to your own physician if you have any physical or mental health concerns that arise in the coaching process).
Many coaches work on a superficial level, focused on the basics of your goals. They help you identify obstacles, give you assignments and work with you to create a basic plan to achieve each goal. I use this process as a starting point, but go beyond it. In addition to drawing from my own personal experience, I bring to our work over 20 years of working with and studying human nature and behavior, psychology, motivation, workplace wellness, mental wellness and resilience.
It’s my greatest joy to share my personal and professional expertise in these and other areas, to help you move forward. I also periodically help aspiring authors/speakers/experts to begin to establish a platform and expand the impact of their work.
Together we’ll look at your work life, your personal life, your beliefs, your challenges, and your goals and dreams from a fresh perspective, with the intention of equipping you with whatever it is you need to move forward in your life.
We can work together on a variety of different goals, based on your unique situation:
- Transitioning to a job or career that’s better suited to you
- Finding more meaningful, purposeful work, or finding more meaning and fulfillment in your current situation
- Reducing stress, overwhelm and feelings of burnout
- Developing a vision for growing your business and taking steps to move it forward
- Identifying key career objectives and what it would take to accomplish them
- Clarifying how to better handle your current work situation and be more impactful
- Establishing clear goals for what you want to accomplish in both your work life and personal life, and helping you to move toward them
Though the greatest source of frustration in your life may be your work situation, we will also work together on improving the big picture of your life and health. I want to see you thrive in your personal life, not just your work life (ultimately, the two are very closely related).
Some other things we may work on together, according to your goals and needs:
- Making choices, building habits and developing perspectives to help you feel more contented, positive and happier about your life
- Reducing feelings of anxiety and fear that may accompany significant changes and transitions
- Increasing your enthusiasm, passion and sense of purpose for your work and life
- Identifying and protecting your top life priorities, reducing overwhelm and increasing your experience of balance and accomplishment
- Taking better care of yourself mentally and physically, increasing your energy
- Nurturing your most important relationships and developing better relationship skills at work and in life (for example, working on boundary setting)
- Improving your work/life balance
As your coach, I commit to listening deeply to you, possibly more so than anyone else ever has (I hear this often from clients!).
I will be someone for you to be accountable to, to help you finally make change happen instead of just dreaming or talking about it. I will speak up and call you out when necessary, gently challenging you and drawing you out, because that’s what I’m here for. I will also openly and generously share my professional and personal knowledge and experience with you.
Finally, I promise to cheer you on, applaud every success, big or small, and will jump up and down when you have a breakthrough! I love watching you finally keeping your promises to yourself. I love seeing you succeed.

My relationship with you in the event that we work together is as a coach, not a medical doctor, psychologist or counsellor (the relationship that is created is not, under any circumstances a physician-patient relationship or a therapeutic relationship). Though I practice separately as a medical doctor, and occasionally we may touch on medically related topics as they are a relevant part of your life, my work with you as a coach is about helping you move forward and meet your goals in creating a generally balanced, healthy, happy life. It is not a substitute for appropriate medical advice from your physician or other health professional. I work with you as my coaching client, not my patient, and as such in our work together it is not my role to officially diagnose or treat any medical or psychological/psychiatric conditions. If something medically related comes up in our work together, I may advise you to see a physician for further follow-up if I believe it would be appropriate.
