Coaching For Physicians in the Preretirement Years
Intelligent, creative strategies for physicians, by a physician
Reduce stress in your life.
Move from exhausted to energized.
Plan proactively for your future.
A physician’s burden is heavier than ever.
Doctors navigate an increasingly complex world, with rigid systems, tangled-up politics, and heavy workloads. Many middle-aged physicians have years of experience and a high level of clinical skill to offer but run into all types of obstacles. You may be:
Frustrated by the broken healthcare system
Spread thin caring for patients and family
Fed up with an unrealistic pace of life
Tired of the pressure to compromise your values
Prevented from really using your expertise
Suffering from burnout and moral injury–now intensified by the pandemic
Are you selling yourself short?
Physicians are no strangers to challenge. Chances are, you’ve been through a lot and can deal with more. But are you thriving?
It’s not about doing more.
Instead of using wellness tools as weapons, we use them as vehicles to get really clear about your values. We look at the systemic issues that lead to moral injury and name them. Then we discern how to make choices that reflect your values. We’ll also explore ways to enjoy your life right now.
We’ll explore a variety of options for a compelling future. You may want to develop strategies to advocate for yourself and deal with toxicity at your current workplace. You may want to pivot your career or design your retirement plan. Whatever your choice, we’ll help you create a path that is achievable and life-giving.
Future-proof your career and your well-being.
Dr. Julia helps you develop well-being strategies that work for you. We’ll identify ways to recharge, uncover your unique strengths, and develop a plan to jump off the hamster wheel and take charge of your life.
Reconnect to your values.
Free up space for you.
Restore internal and external wellness.
Design a fulfilling future.

About Dr. Julia Huber
Dr. Julia has extensive experience as an emergency physician and understands the unique challenges that today’s doctors face. She now works as an advocate for physicians, helping them find more meaning and connection in their daily lives. Dr. Julia has certification in trauma-informed yoga and is an ICF certified coach who adheres to the ICF code of ethics.
“Coaching” has been emerging even before the pandemic through private training and certification programs that have provided virtual careers for many with tools that can be useful. Physician coaching, as provided by Dr. Julia, is a professional practice grounded in her experience with the demands and challenges of medical practice and experience navigating career change in medicine, offered with the skill set of an experienced physician. While such coaching does not include the diagnosis and treatment of disease, it can support clients’ health as well as professional journey. Physician coaching offers quality guidance and support by a trained colleague with experience meeting high standards of care and a familiarity with the demands of practice.
“Professional Coaching from Dr. Huber has been a lifesaver for me. I reached out to her at a pivotal point in my career, in the middle of a pandemic, where I was clearly showing signs of burnout. She helped me re-establish my foundation based on my core values, and that helped me climb out of burnout and she provided me with the life-changing tools to get what I want out of my career and work-life balance. I cannot say enough about how Dr. Huber did such a fabulous job of guiding me to make meaningful, sustainable changes in my life that have been impacting all aspects of my life for over a year!”
– Dr. A, Practicing Physician
Physician coaching is not medical in nature and nothing is offered or should be taken in sessions as the diagnosis or treatment of disease. Clients should not start or discontinue any treatment regimen or avoid any needed diagnostic workups as a result of coaching. Physician coaching does not create a doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Julia is licensed in Kentucky and Virginia and only practices medicine in those states.
