Care In Times of Crisis

The pandemic has extended into more than a year of uncertainty, loss and pain. Physicians, public health professionals, educators, nurses, APPs, and administrators and leaders at every level are stretched thin physically, mentally and emotionally.

The harm isn't limited to those in healthcare and education. This has been a time of unrelenting toxic stress for everyone, in every industry. 


Professional, Personal & Leadership Coaching

Although many things feel out of our control right now, we all want to show up as our "best self" in times of crisis.


Real time trauma mitigation and resilience strategizing is an effective and efficient way to regain balance and maintain calm and focus in times of crisis. This can help diminish the long-term health and socio-emotional consequences of chronic, toxic stress.

Lodestar's trademarked Trauma Mitigation Coaching paradigm is particularly effective in times such as these.

The process is deeply collaborative and builds upon principles of trust, transparency, empowerment and peer support. Emphasis is placed on creating a culture of both/and thinking with a focus on abundance and mutual respect

Real time trauma-mitigation is THE coaching skill set needed in times such as these

In the time I worked with Dr. Sarraf I left a terrible job and an abusive marriage. Her coaching – more importantly, her compassion and patience – is the thing that got me through all of it. I was in therapy too, something she recommended after our second or third coaching session, and she was right – both helped, differently.

If you’d told me 18 months ago that I could do this and come out the other side happy and stronger, I would have called you a liar. But I didn’t have to give up my career, just THAT job. And I didn’t have to give up my life, just THAT marriage. I can’t say it enough: Call her.
