I will be re-branding the website with the new logo. I am a family physician and I will be coaching physicians/professionals who are suffering from burnout. The following information will provide more background:
Coaching Services and Packages
Hello and Welcome!
Before I present my coaching services and packages to you, please take just a moment to answer a few questions:
Have you had these thoughts, made any of these statements or asked yourself any of these questions lately?
I’m burned out. I have nothing left to give.
Is this all there is to life? Is there nothing more?
I hate my job. But, I can’t do anything else.
My life feels unmanageable, like I have no control.
Life will get better when I retire.
How do I discover my passion? How do I know my purpose for being?
I’m just too old to start over?
I don’t have the time, money or luck I need to become successful.
My future seems out of my control.
I can’t create anything anyone would want. I have no natural talents.
Have you experienced any of the following in your job?
Symptoms of professional or healthcare provider burnout such as:
Emotional Exhaustion - a feeling of being emotionally depleted to the point where you feel you can no longer give of yourself at an emotional or psychological level.
Depersonalization – development of negative and cynical feelings leading to a callous and dehumanized perception of patients, clients or customers which further leads to the view that they are somehow deserving of their problems and troubles.
Lack of a Sense of Personal Accomplishment - feeling so little reward that there is a tendency to evaluate oneself in negative terms which leads to dissatisfaction and unhappiness in one’s work creating a lack of a sense of personal accomplishment.
If so, you may be suffering from professional burnout which is identifiable, preventable and treatable.
Have you recently felt any of the following?
More and more time pressured?
Less patient? Less empathetic? Less enthusiastic?
More irritable? More intolerant? More exhausted?
Disengaged? Unmotivated? Uninterested and uninteresting?
That life is no longer worth living?
If any of this sounds familiar, please just know that it doesn't have to be this way.
At one time, my life had become completely unmanageable. I became an alcoholic, put my career in jeopardy and was ruinously close to losing everything for which I had worked so hard.
I eventually became sober and have remained sober for the past 24 years but that turned out to be just the beginning of my transformation. It took a calamity of circumstances and another personal crisis for me to realize that for true happiness and fulfillment I would have to completely transform my life, first by defining and then by pursuing my true passions and purpose.
My transformation was nothing short of miraculous and has brought me a new freedom and a new happiness that I had never envisioned for myself. The same principles I applied toward my own transformation will help others facing similar circumstance. Perhaps that is you.
I am a writer, speaker, podcast host, coach and family physician. I use all of these abilities and talents to convey a simple but powerful message -
A life changing transformation is possible
You can erase the causes and effects of professional burnout
You can uncover and discover your true passions
You can recapture the joy of purposeful work and in living
You can remodel your thinking for tangible, positive, real-life benefits
You can let loose your creative potential using your natural God given talents and abilities.
If this sounds appealing to you, I want to be your personal Transformation coach. I want to help you to erase the causes and effects of professional burnout. I want to be your burnout specialist.
I invite you to read more about my story under the ABOUT tab on the Home page of this website.
If you answered yes to many of the questions at the opening above the one thing that I want to drive home to you is that life just doesn't have to be that way. People can change. People can Transform themselves and their lives.
Not only does every human being have the ability to change, I believe everyone has the ability to completely Transform their life using their own unique natural talents and abilities. Everyone has the capacity to Transform, to undergo a metamorphosis of the mind, body and spirit in order to dream, design and construct their preferred future.
If you feel that you are merely existing rather than living, laboring at a job that you detest where your true passions can not be expressed or where your talents can not be developed or constructively explored then just know that it doesn't have to be that way.
If you feel that you have some how side-stepped your life’s calling, that something is missing, that your life or your job is like a pair of gloves that have never felt as though they fit you quite right then just know that it doesn't have to be that way.
If you feel that you have not fully developed your natural talents and abilities, have no opportunity to use them, or believe you have no natural talents or abilities at all then just know that it doesn't have to be that way.
My primary focus is to help an individual identify and erase the causes and effects of professional burnout and to assist them in transforming their life through coaching by:
Helping them to identify and develop their true inner passions,
Identify, develop and employ their natural talents and abilities for purposeful work,
Positively remodel their mind-set and fine tuning it for success,
Unleash creative potential,
Assess the health and needs of all four personal realms – the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual realms.
I hope this helps but is not too much information to digest. If you have any questions, please contact me.
