Women in Health Care

Women working in health care experience big challenges day to day: burn out, work-life balance, and communicating within a system that has historically been defined by male providers. Many feel the crushing weight of insurance companies, who make it harder for providers to do what they do best by decreasing reimbursement rates and increasing the number of hoops you need to jump through to meet your patients’ needs. And now, of course, there is a pandemic that has touched every single facet of your life personally and professionally. 

Despite the challenges, you have a passion for helping. You are deeply committed to making a difference in the lives of the patients you serve, and yet it seems harder to do that than ever before. I understand it. I lived through it as a psychologist for over thirty years. To serve your patients at your best, you need to take care of yourself first. As the saying goes, “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” As a coach who holds a national board certification in health and wellness coaching, I am ready to help! You can use IGNITE to: 

          • increase your awareness of the (often hidden) gendered expectations and make a plan for how to respond to them,
          • improve your communication skills so you can better advocate for yourself, and
          • make an action plan to enhance your well being and continued growth.
