Bio / Description of Coaching Practice: My calling in life has been to alleviate the suffering of others. As a physician for 27 years, I sought to ease the physical and emotional pain of my patients. As a recovery coach I support my clients in finding resilience in their recovery. During my recovery, I have grown, learned and transformed limiting core beliefs and I guide my clients in doing the same. I meet my clients wherever they are in their process and support them in their goals of harm reduction and/ or abstinence. I offer my clients a space of unconditional acceptance, where I focus on building self awareness, defining goals and maximizing fulfillment and balance in all aspects of life.

Focus Areas:

  • Harm reduction
  • Burnout
  • Health Care Professionals.
