Hello, I'm Ricka -
a Nationally Board Certified (NBC-HWC) Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coach. I specialize in working with physician leaders and corporate and non-profit executives and their families to:
Navigate complex personal and professional issues in a safe and confidential space
Explore the internal and external barriers to growth and healing & feel hopeful about the future again
Actively collaborate on strength-based solutions
Provide warm, dedicated, confidential support
How many of these common toxic stress inducing experiences do you recognize
in yourself or family members?
Troubled relationships at work or at home
High intensity workplace with little room for error
Competing expectations leaving you feeling overwhelmed at the end of the day
Increased pressure from stakeholders, particularly during COVID, to have “all the answers”
Burnout (psychological quicksand), perhaps from being promised something that is nearly unattainable
Grief and loss following the loss of people and things you care deeply about
Realizing that what you actually spend most of your day doing is not why you went to school for so many years
Loneliness at the top
Little or no “you” time, after all is said and done
In my confidential, HIPAA protected coaching sessions, I work with you to carve out space to reimagine what you want for yourself, listen deeply for your internal wisdom as a thought partner (even when you have trouble hearing it), and help you create new behavior patterns that lead to feeling healthier and more alive.
Coaching for Complex Personal & Professional Issues
Complex issues can creep up slowly over time or happen suddenly and without warning, threatening to overwhelm your personal and professional life. Short bursts of stress are tolerable and sometimes even desirable, but ongoing chronic stress can leave you feeling anxious, angry, confused and disconnected.
Reducing toxic stress and cultivating emotional resilience is a have-to-do imperative for long-term success in the workplace, a healthy family life, and the prevention of chronic disease.
Physician Leader and Corporate and Nonprofit Executive Coaching
Life is fluid and messy and that is the truth. I am passionate about being a thought partner with physician and executive leaders and their family members, individually and within organizations, to normalize the experience of navigating complex personal and professional issues. Embracing the vulnerability of change deepens engagement - both in the workplace and at home.
My clients include the below categories, and I work with others, as well.
