The improvements in my life, which are the direct result of Dr. Heather Fork’s coaching have been nothing short of amazing! Every subject we have worked on has been unbelievably successful. She really helped me set goals and stay focused and have a winning attitude. When I took a little break a few months back I had a crisis come up. I was on the phone with Heather and was soon “back in the game”. The crisis passed and I was able to make good decisions with her help. My family relationships, health, work environment and living situation have all improved since we started this process together. Thank you, Dr. Fork, for new life, new interests and new energy to enjoy it all!

  • Meeting with Heather Fork as a professional life-coach has been a watershed event in my effort to transition into a larger life for myself. I appreciate Heather’s confidence and passion for the work she has chosen. I’m inspired by how she is efficient without being rushed- an amazing number of insights come to the fore in what feels like a luxurious amount of time. The tools she brings to the table take on new, much deeper life due to her fluency with them. There is nothing about the process that feels artificial, superficial, or trivial. Her suggestions are grounded in deep psychology yet eminently practical. The work we are doing will have ramifications for me far beyond the career transition. I was not familiar with life-coaching before we began and now, based on my experience with Heather feel a great respect and gratitude for the life-enhancing work she is about.

  • I did not know what a Life Coach was until I learned about Heather Fork a year ago. Since that time I have “met” with Heather regularly. Her program has really been a Godsend. Heather is someone I can really rely on and openly share with. She has been instrumental in helping me attain my goals and finding balance in my personal and professional life. She has made a real difference in my life! I strongly and without reservation recommend her as a coach.

  • Dear Heather,

    Thank you so much for our meeting yesterday.  I came away from our discussion feeling as if I had been given “permission” to be and accept my true self.  I felt a little blue at first, realizing how much of my persona and path has been dictated by the “shoulds”.  But taking the first steps in accepting my true wants and interests is starting to feel freeing and energizing.

    You had mentioned tele-psychiatry, and my first reaction was the same as it has always been–no way.  When I examined my aversion further, I realized it is based entirely on the “shoulds” and image and being a “real” doctor.  But the more I consider it, the more it makes sense for me. No commute?  Check!   No overhead?  Check check!    Less face-to-face with people?  Now you’re talking!  I think most of patients would be receptive.

    I can see myself moving in a direction to gradually transition my practice to my home, still incorporating and expanding a medical writing venture as well.  I have much to consider, but have a renewed vigor for life and for my future. Thank you!  I am still looking forward to our upcoming meetings and intend to look at your scheduler ASAP.

  • “The ability that I have acquired to be able to stand up for myself in a toxic work environment, to be more sure of myself, to listen to my gut, to feel good about my abilities as a physician, and to not feel inadequate – are all because you have helped me to grow and to tap into my ‘true self.’ Thank you for bringing me to the point that I am today. I am forever grateful.”

  • Heather, I realized this morning, I had not written in my grateful diary and thought that I may write to you directly. It has been such an amazing journey and I realize there is more to come and I am in awe to the magnificence that I will eventually reach. It all started with your guidance and assistance and attitude to help lead me to a path that I may never have believed to be true as I was told by society and the people I loved dearest. I am happier now than I have been in my working life and I have an amazing vision that I want to see through. Thank you for everything and thank you for being my biggest fan, even when I doubted myself continuously.
