8-WEEK VIRTUAL PROGRAM
Jan 17- March 9, 2024 | CME ELIGIBLE | SPOTS LIMITED
As a woman doctor, you’re sprinting all day.
You don’t even get to enjoy your coffee while it is still hot.
People are throwing demands at you, and busywork is piling up. You feel anxiety and self doubt burrowing in the pit of your stomach while fatigue leads to brain fog for the rest of the day.
You may be questioning if you are cut out for medicine because you're struggling with documentation and imposter thoughts, having to constantly look up things you don't know, and wondering how your colleagues seem to know so much more than you. Sometimes you want to cry watching them all leave on time.
Well established in your role?
You might have lost some of that passion for your practice or maybe it's starting to feel rote. Perhaps the changes that are ongoing with the administration since covid are making you angry and resentful and disconnected from a job you used to love.
In leadership or overseeing trainees?
Everyone complains around you and so many fires need to constantly be put out. Some conversations are so stressful you don't sleep the night beforehand and you wonder if everyone realizes you don't always know what you are doing.
You might be anxious about the transition back to work and have the hardest time keeping work at work and home at home. Or you're nervous to ask others to cover for you so you can pump. (Something your males colleagues never have to worry about..). And let's not even start about the toddler tantrums that are really testing your patience and your skills. Does everyone feel clueless about parenting?
You might spend all weekend working because you are behind on your charts. You see friends or family going out and tell them " Go on without me. I have too many notes to work on". And then the guilt and self pity washes over you.
It makes sense why you might lie awake and wonder..did I make a mistake becoming a doctor? Should I do something different? Should I quit it all, run off, and be a barista? That seems so much easier.
No wonder dissatisfaction colors what should be your time off.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to go on vacation and spend hours reading on the beach without worrying about your inbox?
Or have interrupted time for your kids, without having work on your mind the whole time or flinching every time a notification goes off on your phone?
What about actually having time where you are not at work or at the hospital so you can work on building your social life as a single woman who wants a partner but never has time to even look?
If you're tired of being overwhelmed, there is a way to break the cycle.
As a woman physician there are tools you can learn that will help increase your job and life satisfaction. It's time to reap the benefits of your career choices, and enjoy your amazing life.
I would love to teach them to you so that you can:
Show up at work feeling valued and connected.
Parent the way you want (if you have children) and feel good about it.
Enjoy stress-free vacations because you have the tools you need to handle the challenges that will inevitably come up.
Get your work done in real time so you have the freedom and extra time that comes from not taking it home with you.
Improve the relationships in your life.
Have more clarity about your future career path.
Have fun again! Remember fun?
Feel more comfortable negotiating what you know you deserve.
100% of surveyed participants who completed FEEL BETTER felt better.
They felt more in control, HOPEFUL, and EMPOWERED.
And before they joined, they felt exactly like you do right now.
Imagine what your life will be like when…
Your charts are done;
You don't numb out on your phone;
You get paid more;
You have quality time with your family;
You feel less guilty;
You have support from a group of women physicians who get you;
You pee when you have to 😉;
My clients experience these results and so will you.
You don't need a time machine to get to that future. I’m going to teach you how to build it right now and how

I'm going to teach you how.

One of my clients had a patient on her schedule she was very anxious about. She sent a voxer message and I helped her find a good way to think about the patient visit which went much better than she had hoped. Another client was getting panicked during clinic when she was asked to see more patients and through voxer coaching I helped her strategize and really fine tune her day to day workflow and she navigated swimmingly!-karen
Plus an optional opportunity to join a smaller group of 8-10 women for more individual coaching.
Your small group will eet weekly with a coach for more individual attention and connection during the second half of the program.
I had no idea what a rut I was in and how incredibly helpful coaching could be. Dr. LA
Members Only Swag
You deserve to be spoiled and I love spoiling you!
I will be sending you a few really lovely, pretty, luxurious gifts just to celebrate you, because i know most of you will not spend that money spoiling yourself. It's so much fun to get to do that!
Some special surprises are waiting for you inside once you join!
2x/week live zoom coaching sessions from January 17-March 9, 2024
- Wednesday evenings from 8-10 pm EST
- Saturday mornings from 11-1pm EST
These are recorded so if you miss some (and you will because...LIFE) there's no problem. You can make up by watching the recordings later. Easy-Peasy.
And hot off the presses...we are unrolling a private podcast of the recordings so you can listen to them in your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Spotify, etc) when you are out and about in your life! You have the option to opt in to a small group (8-10 women) that will meet once a week so you still have the option for twice weekly live coaching not to mention the Voxer and written coaching option. Whatever coaching you need, you will get it in a way that feels best to you!
Customized to your learning style.
Work at your own pace. Do all the worksheets or none of them. Your homework might be to prioritize resting and decided to skip one of our sessions. We are trained by the toxic culture of medicine to deny our basic needs and slave away at work. We don't allow that in this program! So if you are worried it will be "too much" or that the amount of resources provided could get overwhelming, hear this.
However much or little of the program you choose to do, you will get what you need.
Choose the format where you learn best. Ask for coaching live, or take the coaching you need from what someone else was coached on since so many of our issues are similar.
You have the option to shoot your questions by voxer, ask for written coaching through our portal, or ask in the small group sessions which are unrecorded. You do you. And remember, you get lifetime access to the materials. Revisit as often as you want, it's yours for life.
*Notice the varying specialties. Whatever specialty you are, this will help you.
For one, you are not a special unicorn and you are not beyond hope. We all have human brains and these tools work for people with human brains. So they will work for you, period.
It also doesn't matter if you practice outside the US. We have had many physicians living and working outside the US absolutely LOVE this same program.
Monica (Internal Medicine): "I'm feeling less overwhelmed with work... Overall, my mood has just been better...I have the tools now...to avoid burnout."
Erin (Surgery): I was worried about the time commitment ... I can work 100 hours in a week....but it was empowering actually. It was an oasis that I looked forward to each time and made me carve out time for growth and I think that alone is a message....
Joy(Obstetrics and Gynecology): "Before the program, I was feeling stuck, guilty, lost, unsure...I didn't feel comfortable about everything that was happening in my life. But now I feel like I have more choices...I feel more confident .."
Lara(Academic Pediatrics): "What better thing is there to spend money on than your sanity, happiness, helping yourself feel better at work and at home. This unbelievable burden lifted me off now on the weekends...I have the time to spend with my family. I'm so so grateful for that..."
Andrea (Family Medicine Department Chair): "In this short amount of time you feel so connected to those other women and you all want to rally behind each other. It has been incredibly helpful."
Nicole (Internal Medicine Leadership) : "Normally my laptop has to be pried out of my hands...but now I left on vacation calm. It wasn't the normal chaos that I usually bring to it. I was ready I was calm....Everything was fine.

Risk Free, Appendicitis Guarantee
The Feel Better Program comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
I am so confident that your life and work will be transformed by the skills you develop through this training that if you attend at least four of the sessions and don't feel the fit is right for you, I will promptly refund your course fee (minus a $250 processing fee that goes to the credit card processor).
I call this my appendicitis guarantee because I am so motivated to help women physicians who are in distress, I would much rather have someone join who is 95% certain it is for them and then give a refund ( ie removing a normal appendix which back in the day we were taught you were supposed to do 20% of the time ) than risk having someone miss out on life changing tools when she might have been the perfect fit (and miss her necrotic appendix )
Confusing medical analogies aside, we take on all the risk so you don't have to. If you try the program and it is not for you, you get your money back, guaranteed.
2 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS I GET ASKED A LOT:
1. Do employers really cover this?
Yes!!!! Most clients have been pleasantly surprised when part or all of this program is covered by their employer/institution.
Plus it sets a precedent and puts the data (JAMA!) in their laps. It sends a message to your employer that investing in coaching and other support for physicians SHOULD be on their radar. Unless they want to keep losing millions of dollars every year due to attrition and turnover from physician burnout (!).
You are much more likely to get reimbursement and funds than you probably think.
2. Is it really worth that much?
Think of it as an investment to save or safeguard the 20 year, $ multiple 6 figure + blood sweat and tears investment you've made into your career.
This investment comes back to you many times over when you enjoy your life and feel better about work, your relationships, your future, yourself.
It comes back when you are able to negotiate the raise or promotion you deserve but hadn't known HOW or felt confident enough to ask. Oh, and we provide you with a custom pay report that includes the MGMA data for your specialty and geographic area, a $299 value, at no extra cost!
Past participants have negotiated:
- 5 figure raises and signing bonuses
- Lower prices on houses
- New roles and titles at work
- Part time or sabbaticals
One of the women in a prior cohort wanted to get out of a not great work environment and negotiated to create a department in her specialty at a highly esteemed academic institution that didn't even have that department. She did not enter the program with the confidence to do something like that. It was amazing!
"If it helps keep in you medicine (or helps you find something better suited to you, its worth it. In the grand scheme of my $350k of medical school debt, this felt like the right investment at the right time for me. "
" I had the same concerns. Once you start working with the program you will not regret what you spent. It is worth it! Also you can get CME reimbursement. "
"Already getting a return on my investment in time spent at home with my family instead of working on my inbox or ruminating over a patient outcome. "
"This program is well worth the money spnet. You only get one life and it is worth investing in."
LET’S ADD IT ALL UP
It’s important to know the enormous value you’ll get in this program.
Here’s everything you’ll get in Feel Better:
YOU HAVE 2 ALTERNATIVES
1. DO NOTHING AND REMAIN OVERWHELMED & MAYBE BURNED OUT
If you don’t take action now, you will likely be in the same situation this time next year if not worse.
Doing nothing now usually , obligates yourself to more of the same meaning there is an opportunity cost to not doing this program. What does that look like for you?
“What is the cost of not doing it? For me it was the point where I needed change and better work life balance… I could not afford to keep doing this on my own because that was clearly not working.” ET
2. DO SOMETHING AND FEEL BETTER
This will change everything for you.
“(As women & doctors) we’ve been brainwashed that our needs don’t matter and don’t take priority. Making the investment in yourself, because you’re worth it, opens the door to a new way of thinking.” Dr. AG
“You and your long-term happiness are worth so much more than the cost of this program.” Dr. MH
STILL ON THE FENCE?
Here’s what prior Feel better participants had to say:
“My charts are always complete!! Now I know what done feels like,” Dr SC
“Karen is 100% invested in helping YOU; you know she is on your team! You will look at yourself as someone who is loved, confident, and ready to face challenges with new ways of thinking. I’m more collaborative at work directly as a result of my work in this program. My team can approach me because I’m not always stressed. I now feel amazing! I have so much confidence in all my relationships — most especially the one with myself. The investment is so worth it!” ~ Dr. EB.
“I didn’t know how much I needed the change until I went through the program because I now feel amazing! I have so much confidence in all my relationships - most especially the one with myself.” ~ Dr. MM
“I now have a much more positive outlook about work, marriage, parenting, all aspects of my life.” ~ Dr. LN
“I have more confidence and ability to stand up for myself, figure out what I want, and ask for it!” ~ Dr. WC
What if I don't have enough time?
Do I have to do the small groups?
Will I fit in if I am a recent grad? Midcareer? Towards end of career?
What will my employer think? Will they really pay for this?
What if I can't attend every session?
Do you accept payment plans?
Will I benefit even if I have done or am in therapy?
How does the CME work?
What if I am Canadian?
Can we talk if I still have questions?
Can I join if I am a med student, resident, or midlevel?
