Reconnect to your Profession.

What We Do

Physicians, health officials, attorneys, and leaders in every sector have endured years of unrelenting toxic stress and uncertainty, overloading even the most well-resourced professionals and organizations.  What follows?  Anger, disengagement from work and colleagues, compassion fatigue, and attrition - all of which are straining once robust and reliable systems.


Lodestar restores trust to diminished workplace cultures through intensely experiential training, group coaching, and 1:1 professional development programs.  Our clients include hospital systems, law firms, and government.  We provide immediately actionable skills for professionals and teams to move beyond the toxic stress of these times, restoring connections to your clients and to your teams.  We begin with this fundamental truth:  Connection Mitigates Trauma.

Who We Help

Physician + Health Care

You choose us because we are good at helping restore your love of medicine.  Though we do not provide therapy, working with us feels incredibly therapeutic.  You did not go into this profession expecting to feel the way you currently feel, nor to become this burned out.  We know the daily pressure you face.   We, too, joined this profession to be healers.  

Legal Professionals

You choose us because we provide a safe and personalized space for attorneys to regain the focus and passion that brought them to the law originally.  Our profession is more than billable hours and secondary trauma.  We move you through and past your current level of stress and disengagement.   Your connection to your career comes back.


You choose us because the challenges you are facing in a government career have grown exponentially over the past decade.  The increased workload and seeming discord threaten to erode the organizations that once sustained our communities.   Our individualized approach to your Teams and organization help to restore a  career and workplace that you love.

Our Mission

For many of us, the compounding and increasing stressors of the past several years have eroded our ability to feel centered and dedicated to our careers; off-balance and with an eroded sense of purpose.   

Lodestar is comprised of physicians, attorneys, psychologists, and educators — with decades of experience in team restoration, leadership consulting, and coaching. 

Our mission is to move our clients beyond the incredible stress, fatigue, and moral injury of these times.  We are professionals working in these environments - and we understand. The path forward requires actionable skills and a different paradigm, beginning with this fundamental truth:


Connection Mitigates Trauma.

The Impact We’ve Made

Before Clients Met Us 

.... another government training.  What box are we checking this time?  I appreciate that someone is spending money on us, which would be stupid.  But I don't have time to spend away, and the work will pile up while I am gone. 

I was "voluntold" to take this 3-day workshop with my team.  Three days with people I don't trust. At least I get a free work trip.

We don't interact at work.  Why bother?   Screen off.  Head down.  Retire In Place. 

Our leadership is the problem.  It's like they are so removed from actual work that they don't even care about the impact on our workload and mental health.  Insane.  

After We Helped Make a Change

100% worth it. Worth the time and  effort.  I've never been in something like this.  It was intense, and I didn't want it to end.  I never had the words for everything I was going through.  It was a shock to learn I was not alone.  This was unexpected and powerful.  

The 3 days in Washington, DC, really bonded us.   Our whole team felt it. We haven't communicated this well in years, and the effect hasn't worn off yet.  

I haven't felt this good in a long time.  It's like some part of me just cracked open again. 

... and our Leadership has been deeply harmed, too.  These past years were terrible, and now I get it - we've all been paying the price.  They cared enough to get us this help, and I'm grateful for that.
