Professional Physician Coaching Empowers You

Gain Control

Do you ever feel like you're no longer in control of your day or your schedule? That you have no choice but to work after-hours? Are you feeling as if there is so much chaos that you can't complete anything to your standards? You are not alone. Loss of agency takes a mental, emotional, and physical toll on primary care physicians. Through coaching, I give you the tools to get you back in the driver's seat of your life and your career.

Grow Confidence

Do you often second-guess yourself? Ever get a sinking feeling that someone else would do better? Does fearing what others think of you interfere with your plans or hold you back? The medical education process often strips away confidence even as you grow in expertise. I help you identify your saboteurs and overcome them. Begin tackling tasks and filling roles confidently.

Maximize Joy

Do your multiple job responsibilities spill into your personal life? Do you dread going to work some days? Has patient care become a burden? Through coaching, I help you discover personalized methods to decrease stress, improve energy, and engage with patients and responsibilities afresh. Envision looking forward to work each day (and leaving it behind at the end of the day). Enhance your relationships and start embracing the fullness of your life and career with joy. 

You have worked too hard to settle

I use my experience as a busy family medicine residency faculty and a certified professional coach to help you not only avoid the burnout I experienced but also to flourish in your chosen career and enjoy the fullness of life.

Leslie Waldman, MD - APD

Northwest Washington Family Medicine Residency

All of us are keenly aware of the toll our profession can take on wellness.  As an APD, I have felt ineffective in finding ways to positively and enduringly impact resident wellness.  Based on our universally positive resident feedback, I think Joy in Family Medicine coaching is definitely one of the ways to address this concern.  I really appreciate not having program faculty directly involved in this experience, it truly gives residents a safe space to be open and honest.

She brings a gracious confidence to the challenges of residency and clinical practice. I have grown so much from her coaching!

R3, MD

I was a mess when we met. I have never felt so comfortable and focused as I do now. This could not have been possible without your timely coaching

Casey Gokey, MD

A career in medicine can be challenging. Sometimes we are burnt out and we do not even recognize the symptoms. Tonya’s program is refined into manageable sections anyone can find time for.  Even if you think you have it all together, she is able to help clarify goals and give an outside physician perspective on how to prioritize and problem solve. Tonya can help you figure out how to improve work-life balance and align your goals with what is most important to you. I highly recommend physician coaching in general, and I definitely recommend working with Tonya.
