Heather, I know it has been quite a while, but just wanted to follow up with you and let you know again how much I appreciated your help, support and guidance when I really needed it.  You are so wonderful for doing that and I am so very thankful!  I finally made a decision a few months back and have very, very happily changed careers back into the IT field where I’m super excited about work, learning and the challenges I get to conquer.  Your wisdom was an integral part of this successful process, so a big hug and thank you to you.  I wish you the best in all you do and if I ever hear of anyone in the medical (or a related) field need counseling or guidance, I will be sure to give them your name and website.

  • If it weren’t for Dr. Heather Fork, I would still be the frustrated physician I became over the years …of what I viewed to be diminishing fulfillment in the practice of medicine… and a cup half empty. I was introduced to Heather through a fellow physician, and so began my journey back to feeling inspired about my career and purpose in life. Heather’s calm, compassionate presence was a welcome invitation. I felt authentically heard for the 1st time in years. Starving for any improvement in my life at work, Heather fed me on a wave of discovery through thoughtful questions and mind-opening personality testing. This allowed me to re-connect with my inner self. The result was that my past and present began to integrate into an exciting future where my talents and experiences are combined, allowing me to offer help for people in ways that have since energized my existence into a cup near-full. I was so impressed with what Heather had to offer that I decided to embark on the very same training she went through to become a co-active coach. Her passionate support gave me the courage to move forward, and I remain forever grateful for her contribution to my feeling fulfilled on a daily basis! Thanks Heather!!

  • Heather, I can’t tell you how lucky I am to have met and worked with you. I came to you at the time of confusion and desperation and you were a beacon of light. Through talking with you, I learned to listen to myself, and that is no small thing. Sometimes it is scary, but it is the best way of moving forward. I am also so grateful to you for introducing me to Dr. G. I learned a lot about the pharmaceutical industry from talking with him, and he introduced me to the Regional Director MSL who recommended me for my current job as a writer at a medical communications agency. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had not stumbled upon your website. I’m so grateful we met! I cannot thank you enough for your warm, uplifting guidance. With gratitude,

  • 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.

  • 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 knew I needed a change. I had been thinking about it for years. I was burnt out, less effective than I had ever been, and my life was totally out of balance. But to what and how? Fortunately, as I was surfing the net one night after a long , irritating day at work, I came across the Doctor’s Crossing website. I came back to it several times before I finally emailed Heather. That simple action turned out to be a life-altering moment. Heather helped me look at my career and my personal life from a holistic perspective, as pieces of a grand puzzle that needed to fit together in a coordinated harmony.  She taught me ways in which I could preserve my identity as a healer and activist while also  being kind to myself. She helped me envision my future path and then supported me as I changed directions. When I needed a new skill to navigate through the challenges, she taught  me. When I had to make a difficult decision, she provided me with  the information and contacts I needed. When I was scared and doubtful, she was my cheerleader. I love my new career! I am happy at work and at home. I’m certainly living a healthier lifestyle than I ever have. I am working less hours with less stress and making twice the money. I couldn’t have done it without her! When I need to make  significant career decisions in the future, you can bet that I will use her services  again and again and again!
