Coaching is not therapy,

and great coaching can be incredibly therapeutic.

Lodestar's trauma-mitigation coaching paradigm is both aspirational and highly effective for professionals navigating times such as these.


Why Lodestar

In the end, it's really very simple: We all need a deeper bench.

That's why I founded Lodestar.


Burnout, Vicarious Trauma and Moral Injury

Physicians are smart, tough, durable, resourceful people.  If there was a way to MacGyver themselves out of this situation by working harder, smarter, or differently, they would have done it already.

Meet Dr. Sarraf

Everyone is experiencing the caustic stress of these times differently, but our baseline emotions are the same: shock, fear, resolve, outrage, disbelief, exhaustion and, ultimately, grief.   


No one - especially those in the field of medicine - is escaping this unscathed.  The pain is universal. 


We all need some extra tools right now
