Pam Pappas MD, MD(H)
Pam Pappas MD is a multiply certified coach, integrative psychiatrist, author, mentor, and speaker.
She helps physicians transform their feelings of disheartened burnout into wholehearted living, working, and leading.
So many physicians describe experiences of “losing my soul” in Medicine, that Pam feels called to respond comprehensively. Grounded in a deep understanding of the universal principles behind life, she gently guides her clients towards their own well-being, clarity, and capacity for insight. Taking practical, effective action flows naturally from there.
From Pam’s clients:
“I now feel I’m better able to identify and go after what I need to feel balanced. Now I wake up not dreading the day -- and even hired a house cleaner!"
“It surprised me how utterly present, engaged, and encouraging you were.”
“I learned that I am more than just a doctor, that I am human before anything else.”
Susan Leggett-Johnson, M.D. is a board-certified internist, speaker, leadership, and burnt-out prevention coach.
As a physician, ‘accidental leader,’ mom, and woman of color, the journey to becoming a physician executive was filled with self-doubt, gender stereotypes, and racial bias in a male-dominated environment.
Susan brings her 25+ years of clinical experience and her executive leadership experience to her coaching practice. She helps physicians take control of their lives, develop their leadership skills, and prevent burnout resulting in increased joy professionally and personally.
Mark Jaben, MD is a physician wellness and burnout prevention coach and a board certified Emergency Medicine Physician.

From Dr. Jaben's clients:
I can't thank you enough for your help. That one phone call definitely changed things for the better for me.’
"I have never been happier with work or more balanced with life in general.

From Dr. Hsu's Clients:
When I first started coaching with Penelope I was in crisis mode, dealing with a difficult boss and my job was not meeting my expectations. Now, we have a much more peaceful practice, with a lot less frustration and I’m way better at leaving work drama at work.
