Women physicians: Are you ready for a life that is actually doable?
Hi, I’m Diane.
Twenty-odd years ago, I made the difficult choice to leave clinical practice despite my love of patient care. It was a desperate move made for self-preservation. The stress of trying to protect my patients in a faulty system combined with my lack of internal resources for self care led me to complete depletion and despair. Later, I learned it’s called professional burnout.
I became a professional coach because I believe that coaching is truly and deeply transformative. I chose to train in a coaching style that builds on strengths and aligns with my personal values of compassion, deep authentic connection, and humility.

WORK WITH ME
I work with women physicians through 1:1 coaching, virtual groups, and in-person retreats. Whether you’re a woman in medicine or an organization leader who wants to support and retain women physicians, I can help.
“Diane has an impressive ability to reflect on both spoken and unspoken content, challenging me to be honest about my own experience so that I can move towards desired changes and growth. She is highly professional, truly personable, and coaches from a whole-person perspective to maximize potential, without buying into presumed limits. I am so fortunate to work with her as I explore the next evolution of my career. Working with Diane helped me tap into my passion more fully, trust in my own work and the wisdom that I have to offer, and be courageous.”
