Helping high achievers design deliberate habits for life.
Helping high achievers design deliberate habits for life.
Picture this. THE END of:
This is "your one wild, precious life" (Mary Oliver).
Habits like all or none thinking, second guessing, overcomplicating, perfectionism, numbing, ruminating- they take more than they give.
I know. I know because these habits used to be my entire existence and I didn't know there was another way to live. Can you relate?
This is where the the HOPP coaching program for women physicians comes in.
With cognitive and somatic coaching, you will learn why you have your current habits. Then, I'll teach you how to apply practical tools and techniques for real world habit change in your day to day life. This way- you develop a skillset you can use all on your own, for the rest of your life.
How? Keep reading or jump ahead by clicking on one of these sections:
Instead of feeling like you're a perpetual self improvement project, you trust yourself completely.
Your values and priorities are so clear that you make decisions quickly without worrying about external approval.
Even though life has curve balls and gut wrenching things happen, you don't feel totally batted around by what's outside your control.
Loose ends from work don’t invade family time and you know how to enjoy whitespace and time spent just BEING.
Instead of coping by working more, hustling and numbing, you know exactly when you need rest, and how to give it to yourself (without guilt and without needing to be near collapse to have permission).
The perfectionist refrain, once I’m ______ (thinner, more organized, smarter, program director, a mom who yells less), then I can be happy, is a thing of the past because you know how to love/trust/approve of yourself right here, right now.
Not only do you have your own back no matter what, you actually deeply care about yourself in the same way you love others.
Here's the problem:
From the outside life looks great- but inside- you aren’t settled or content.
It's not your intent, but you overcomplicate things. You often wake up second guessing- what if I'd done it differently? Your inner critic is ALWAYS present and comparison is like a signature hobby.
Your focus on the future makes you miss out on the present, yet you know life is short and don't want to squander it. You’re sick and tired of feeling overwhelmed by the same to do list you've had for the last 5 years.
No matter how productive you are, you always feel like you aren’t doing enough or excelling as well as you should be/could be. Be it marriage, work, charting, parenting, relationships, exercise, your home, there's never enough time or you're not doing it as well as so and so.
And somewhere along the line, you definitely missed the memo about how to luxuriate in whitespace.
There is no other program like it. Check out the details:
Individual attention and guidance every step of the way. No getting lost in a massive crowd. No feeling like you don't belong.
In community, we learn so much more. The power of group coaching is in getting coaching and insights you didn't even know you needed, just by being in the same room and actively observing the coaching of others.
You know exactly who will coach you: me! I'll guide and support you to UNDERSTAND your old habits so you know exactly how to change them into purposeful ones.
"This was probably one of the most thoughtfully designed courses I have had the pleasure of being a part of." Stella Evans, MD, Pediatrics
"I would tell future coachees to invest in the work. Find time to do it and just commit to doing it." Meivys Garcia, MD, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
"Kristi is a gem in the world of physician coaches. Her deep understanding of the technical skill of coaching allow for an incredible experience as a client. She truly loves all her clients and is 100% on their side helping them find the courage to grow and evolve. Her program has been so easy to be a part of. It doesn’t add stress to your life. The materials are clear, practical and easily integrated into your weekly schedule. The course runs smoothly, with just the right amount of support for your desired learning. She is committed to meeting clients where they are at and yet able to teach and coach to all levels. She an expert in the field of habit change, but that is only a fraction of the coaching value she provides. I have been in three of Kristi’s programs and would 100% recommend anything she offers to any physician wanting to dive into changing habits, breaking down your inner-critic and learning more about who you are and who you want to be. You can’t go wrong in working with Kristi." - Carol Mills, MD Family Medicine
"Kristi was incredibly available to us all - sharing suggestions and coaching via Slack in between calls. The group support from other female physicians with similar life experiences and challenges was incredibly valuable." -Lara Hall, MD, Family Medicine
"I have been working with Kristi almost a year and really enjoy her coaching style and the way she really hones in on the issue at hand and helps me discover my own thoughts. I have grown a tremendous amount over this past year and am much more centered and grounded now. I am so grateful to have found coaching and especially Kristi!" -A.S.MD, Internal Medicine
"Kristi showed me there really is no aspect of my mind or behavior that is not pliable- parts of me that were "just me", or that I regarded as hardwired, I now realize are available to me to reconsider and ultimately address and mold." M.S, MD Emergency Medicine
"Kristi is a wonderful coach.
She is patient, clear, and funny, and she allows me to examine my mind by holding space for my thoughts to unfold, without judgement. Given the rich learning material about how the mind works, combined with the space to examine my thoughts, this program has completely transformed the way I live my life as a doctor, as a mom, as a friend, as an athlete.
It has been the best thing I have done for myself after getting married and having kids. I have loved it so much that I am now continuing coaching and am involved in becoming a coach so that I can offer others the same benefits."
-Ioana Lupu, MD, Rural Family Medicine/ER
This work is a privilege I take seriously. It would be my honor to coach you.
This is the only program of its kind: habit work in a small cohort with a single coach and CME. It's a thoughtfully designed experience with just the right balance of teaching and coaching. In a rich community with other women doing the same work as you.
Coaching is an evidence based intervention that impacts multiple aspects of physician well being: locus of control, burnout, work/life balance, job satisfaction, happiness and empowerment. Coaching with a Master Certified Life and Advanced Deep Dive, Internal Family Systems-informed coach who has your best interests at heart, helps you see your blindspots more efficiently than doing this work on your own.
In short, YES! The work we do in HOPP helps you develop a foundational base and fluency with thoughtwork concepts. No matter where you are with exposure to coaching, we work together to find thought errors, limiting beliefs and habituated ideas, emotions and behaviors.
