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!!

  • 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.

  • Heather is outstanding, both as a person and physician career coach.  She is empathetic, compassionate, and professional, always going the extra mile to ensure her client is satisfied.  I was aware of her services several years before reaching out and my only regret is not seeking her advice sooner.  She was instrumental during my career transition and helped me secure a job in less than 2 months of coaching.  I am supremely confident in Heather and recommend her to any physician searching for a new and fulfilling career path.

  • 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!

  • “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.”
