SANCTUARY For Women Physicians 

Empowering Women Physicians To Create Lives That Feel As Good On The Inside As The World Sees On The Outside

Live a life that feels as good on the inside as it looks on the outside.

Imagine a life you don't need to escape from. One where you wake up everyday energized and excited about what lies ahead. A life where the first moments of your day are spent peacefully  filling your own cup, guilt-free, before tending to anyone else. One that is sprinkled regularly with rest, self-care, and rejuvenation that fuel a beautifully fulfilling life.

Imagine doing work that you actually love. You feel confident, purposeful, appreciated, in control.  You handle the days challenges with ease. And come home at the end of the day with energy to spare. Envision spending your evenings being fully present and connecting meaningfully with family and friends.  Imagine winding down in the evenings with a book you enjoy, or a relaxing hobby you actually have time for. You end the day with a heart of gratitude for the freedom to live a  beautiful life you love, before drifting peacefully to sleep. You are finally free.


This beautiful life is waiting for you, inside of SANCTUARY.

"You are NOT broken.
You are one learnable skill set away
from a life you absolutely love".

-Jeannie Lawrence, MD

Do you feel like you're just existing and surviving day-to-day, but not really LIVING or THRIVING?

Like you're going to work, taking care of the family, doing all the things telling everyone you're "okay" but not really happy or enjoying your one precious life?

Does your life look good on the outside, but inside you're:

  • Burned out, overwhelmed, and exhausted as you try to take care of everyone else?

  • Lonely, disconnected, and forced to hide behind a facade because no one really "gets" or understands the real you?

  • Held back by fear and self-doubt that keep you from showing up authentically and living the life you really want?

Have you gotten so used to being stressed, overworked,  and blah that it seems normal, and like there's no other way to be?

Friend, there is a better way...

Maybe you've already started looking for solutions. But you're overwhelmed with all the options that promise to help you feel better and transform your life. You don't know where to start.
Or perhaps you've tried coaching before, didn't get the transformation you desired, and you're worried you'll fail or SANCTUARY won't work for you.
Maybe you can't seem to find someone who really understands what it is to be a woman a medicine, someone who really gets you.

Perhaps you're so busy you're not sure you'll have the time to commit. Or you're so used to putting others before you, you feel guilty about investing in yourself.


Maybe you already know you need better boundaries and to prioritize yourself. But you just haven't been able to actually change your patterns.

Don't worry. I get you. And I've got you.

My Story

Years ago I found myself in a job that left me feeling overworked, under appreciated and powerless. I got to a place where the stress of my job was taking a toll on me physically and in my home life. I became disillusioned with clinical medicine, which I had always previously loved. The hardest part was that I felt unable to talk about how I was feeling. Everyone expected me to have it all together and from the outside, I did. But inside, I knew something needed to change.
Fortunately, I found my way out of that period of burnout. The shift that helped turn things around for me was the realization that I had power. Somewhere in my journey, I had lost touch with that truth, and started to believe that there was nothing I could do about work or the other challenges I faced in daily life. But when I recognized that there were some things I could change, particularly within myself, I found the strength to make some major shifts in my life.

  • I lost 25 pounds after struggling with my weight for over a decade.

  • I found the courage quit my job and started working for myself

  • I regained my passion for medicine and was able to continue in clinical work with new passion

  • I improved my closest relationships

  • I learned how to navigate challenges and conflict with ease 

  • Internally I felt calmer happier and more in control

  • I tapped into creative passions I had put aside for years — writing and singing. I started a blog and started singing again just because it was fun

My Why

In 2020, excited about the positive changes in my life, I started a blog sharing my insights on emotional health and personal growth. COVID hit around the same time, and like everyone, I was spending more time online as in-person interactions become limited. Online, I started joining various physician groups, and started to see that many women physicians were as I had years ago -- exhausted, overwhelmed, unappreciated, stressed out, and powerless. The stress of  balancing medicine with the many hats of womanhood was compounded by the advent of COVID and pushing many to their limits. I realized I had something I could share, and who needed it most - women physicians.

Between writing and connecting with other women in medicine...

  • I stumbled across my purpose - to help women physicians access support they need to be healthy, happy and whole, and

  • I started and grew my own 6-figure coaching and consulting business, doing work I absolutely love and that  is making a difference in the lives of many

  • I started living the dreams I’ve had for years to be an entrepreneur, share my voice through writing, start a  practice, work from home and create a life I don’t need a vacation from

  • I began living the happy, fulfilled life I had always dreamed of

SANCTUARY is for you if:

  • Despite your professional success, you’re still left wondering “Is this it?” because deep down you don’t feel as happy or fulfilled as you imagined you would be when you got here.

  • You feel disconnected or dissatisfied in your marriage or relationship and want more closeness, connection and communication.

  • You feel like you’re not reaching goals or following your dreams because of fear, self-doubt, perfectionism, feeling like an imposter, or other self-limiting emotions and beliefs.

  • You’re constantly working to achieve more — more education, certification, validation, etc —but despite your achievements, you never feel like it’s enough.

  • You sometimes get “stuck” in negative emotions that you want to break free from but cannot (for example, remaining angry for days or weeks after an argument, or ruminating and anxious for days or weeks after an embarrassing encounter)

  • You feel like you haven’t been showing up as your best self when it comes to your role as mom, doctor, wife, partner, etc.

  • You like the idea of doing self-help and personal development work, and you LOVE the idea of having 1:1 support from someone who gets you and can accelerate your results through the process. 

Inside SANCTUARY For Women Physicians you will be able to

  • Clarity around your current challenges

  • Confidence and tools to improve your mood, mindset and relationships even in the face of challenges

  • Easy to use tools and skills you can continue to use long after our work together is over, to maintain your results and further your progress

  • Safe space and empathic 1:1 support so you can process your thoughts and feelings, and be heard, validated, and understood.

Imagine a future after we work together...

  • Waking up energized, optimistic and ready to take on the day, confident that you can manage whatever life throws at you without spiraling or sinking into negative emotion

  • Being proud of the way you show up as a mom to your kids because you finally have the energy to play with them, the bandwidth to listen to them, and patience to parent them at your highest level

  • Knowing exactly what to do to bring more connection and happiness in your marriage or closest relationships -- even if there's been arguing, strife and disconnection before.

  • Being able to bring your full clarity, focus and confidence to executing your big dreams because you're no longer burdened by self-defeating beliefs, negative thoughts and a rollercoaster of difficult emotions

  • Finally feeling like you have time to pursue what’s truly most important to you, instead of being pulled in a million directions and never having time for yourself or your dreams

All of this is possible for you, and so much more.



"The reason I started working with Jeannie was to get help for an area of my life where I had felt been stuck for years.


What I gained with working her is so much more. I didn’t realize how much of what I was going through was linked to many negative beliefs that I had about myself... I now feel confident, I am more aware of myself and my emotions. I feel more grounded, I have a greater depth of understanding of who I am and the qualities that makes me who I am. I have developed more positive beliefs about myself and I give myself grace. ...Doing this work is helping me heal in such a greater way and I am closer and closer to meeting my goal.


I would recommend anyone who needs a coach to help you navigate through emotions and areas of your life where you feel stuck to work with Jeannie. She is great and she listens, gives you tools to move forward and creates a safe space where you can express yourself in a deep and honest way and feel heard."

"If you're a woman physician thinking about coaching with Jeannie, my advice is simple: Don't hesitate. DO IT."

I signed up for coaching with Jeannie because I was going through an incredibly challenging time in my life. From career struggles to family issues, I felt overwhelmed and in need of support. Traditional counseling helped, but I knew I needed something more. Then I heard Jeannie speak on a podcast, and her words resonated deeply with me. Her warmth, empathy, and understanding of the unique challenges faced by women physicians convinced me that coaching could be the answer I was seeking.


Working with Jeannie has been ife-changing for me. From our very first session, I felt a sense of safety and openness that allowed me to explore my deepest emotions and challenges. Through this journey, I experienced exponential personal growth that I know I wouldn't have achieved otherwise. Jeannie helped me navigate through career burnout, family illness, and other obstacles, guiding me to make courageous decisions and take massive action towards a brighter future.


One of the most significant shifts I've experienced is in my mindset. I've learned to embrace my multifaceted identity as a physician, artist, "daughter CEO", and more. I'm more than a doctor. Jeannie helped me shed the labels and expectations that weighed me down, allowing me to see life with more openness and possibility. I've discovered the power of vulnerability, realizing that self-care is not selfish and that it's okay to lean on support systems when needed.


My mental health has significantly improved through this journey. I've found a newfound sense of peace, joy, and empowerment. I no longer feel like a victim of circumstances but rather an empowered individual capable of facing life's challenges with strength and grace. Even on tough days, I've learned to navigate my emotions with greater awareness and self-compassion.


Beyond personal growth, this journey has also positively impacted my relationships and daily life. I've become more present with my family, reconnected with friends, and rediscovered my creative passions. Through coaching, I've learned to prioritize my well-being and find balance between work and life. I've reached a healthier weight, made a career pivot that honors my true self (while working less and making more), started a business I love, and I'm excited about the possibilities my future holds.


If you're a woman physician considering coaching with Jeannie, my advice is simple: don't hesitate, DO iT. Jeannie provides a safe space where you can be authentically yourself, free from judgment or expectation. Her guidance and support have been invaluable on my journey, and I'm grateful for the positive changes it has brought to my life and the lives of those around me who see the growth in me.


Thank you, Jeannie, for your compassion, wisdom, and unwavering support. You've helped me find strength, clarity, and hope, and I'm excited to continue this journey of growth and transformation.

  • How is this different from therapy?
    Unlike therapy, In coaching there is no assumption of mental health pathology or illness, and no diagnosis is made. Coaching is not treatment for a mental health condition and there is no doctor-patient relationship established in coaching. Coaching can however, be used as an adjunct to mental health treatment for those who have a mental health condition and are working with their own mental health professional for medication management, therapy or both. The skills learned in this coaching experience can be a wonderful complement to traditional mental health treatment and speed recovery.
