Career Coping and Coaching


The Approach

My approach to coaching blends my doctorate in psychology with my 20 years as a hospital CEO facing the real-world pressures of a high-stakes corporate executive career.

One of my main reasons for starting a psychology practice for high-performers? There were no psychologists that I could relate to when I needed one myself!

Frustrated with the traditional psychotherapeutic model, and tired of being advised by counselors about how to “control my schedule” when they had no firsthand understanding of the pressures I faced in the corporate world, I decided there needed to be a solution for the strong, silent leaders out there who were keeping it together on the outside but wildly unfulfilled on the inside.

Inside our sessions, we’ll take aspects of psychology, life coaching, and career mentoring and weave them together in a positive, constructive coaching approach. By identifying the psychoneuroimmunological effects of stress and burnout–that is, the very real hormone cascade that takes place when experiencing personal and professional stress–we’ll have a frame of reference to take control of your life back.
