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.
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 this pandemic 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, and we all need some extra tools right now."
-- Kemia Sarraf, M.D., M.P.H., RCC, TIPC™
