    Thoughts and emotions are at the heart of everything in life. Look around you. Do you like your results? Do you like how you show up in the world? If you don't, change your thoughts and feelings. It's that simple. I'll show you how.

Emotional Intelligence is the key to success, higher income, and feeling more engaged-and less burnt out-at work.

The burnout narrative is not serving you.
You are not a victim.
You ar
e the solution.

You can't change the system. You can't change other people. You CAN change your story and take back your power.

With coaching you will... 

Handle imposter syndrome and micro-aggressions like a BOSS

Experience less job-related disconnection, irritation, exhaustion, and anger

Improve your relationship with yourself, your patients, coworkers, family, and friends

Stop feeling dread on your way to work, and leave a busy workday feeling fulfilled, not sucked completely dry

Be able to deliver care to all patients, even the "difficult" ones, without adding any of your own drama to the experience

Get to Know Me

My name is Mel Thacker, MD, DipABLM. I am double board certified in otolaryngology & lifestyle medicine, a certified coach, and a partner in a busy women-owned private practice. 

Learning how to manage my own brain, feel negative emotions without resistance, and deliberately create the results I want in life are the most empowering skills I have ever learned. I want to share them with you.

1:1 Coaching

Every person on the planet, especially surgeons, needs a coach. Why? Because your brain is designed for survival. It is dictating thousands of thoughts to you, many of them unconscious, negative and connected to old parts of your personality that no longer serve your goals. When you get coached, you get the stories out of your brain to see how they determine how you feel, act, and create results in your life. 1:1 coaching involves private, weekly, remote sessions that will change your life for the better.
