Coaching for Physician Executives & Healthcare Leaders

Are complex issues standing in the way of you being your best self at work and at home?

Personalized Support for

Physician Executives and Healthcare Leaders

As a healthcare professional, you are an expert in recognizing when something is not right and creating a path to health for your patients. As a leader, you are comfortable making executive decisions, driving the path of your team, and pulling apart complicated problems. But identifying what is at the root of your own feelings of being stuck and how to move forward, is often a different level of challenging. 


I work with you as a thought partner in strength-based sessions to untangle the root of the issue and support your ability to create lasting solutions that  eliminate the uncomfortable feelings that disconnect us from purpose and important relationships.

What my clients say about working with me

I worked with Ricka to learn how to decrease stress and take care of myself. I was not taking care of myself and felt stressed out, tired, crabby and unhealthy and that carried over into my family life.


Ricka helped me learn techniques to manage my stress at work to get that good feeling back.
