HEALING INTELLIGENCE is a translation of emotional intelligence into healthcare settings. Through coaching and consulting, presentations and supporting materials, the program helps patients, healthcare providers, and family members connect in the shared pursuit of wellness and compassion. The program reaches medical professionals in hospitals, clinics, and medical schools, teaching them to process verbal and nonverbal cues with empathy and compassion, and then integrate that communication into the clinical data they are charged to deliver. By communicating more effectively, all the players in a medical setting embark on a shared pursuit of wellness, creating a compelling future of health together.

HEALING INTELLIGENCE™ is more important than ever.

Through the challenges of COVID-19 and the pandemic, the medical profession has been forever changed. We are facing severe burn out with over 25% of medical professionals considering leaving the profession by 2024. over 50% of healthcare providers including doctors nurses and healthcare staff admit to being burned out. It is time to take back our profession and reclaim the privilege to serve our patients on our terms. Utilizing tools with psychology, physiology, technology and healing intelligence, we can reclaim that privilege.

The fight is not over, and the medical community needs to recharge. HEALING INTELLIGENCE offers a way to do just that.

In my own life and practice,

I have gained a new sense of hope, energy, and gratitude through the foundational concept of Healing Intelligence. I have been able to resurrect the passion and drive that encourages me to care for patients and their families as my best self. I have provided presentations on these ideas to my colleagues, and am honored to share my story of lessons learned from the thousands of patients who have visited my exam room, people who have trusted their care to me. From them, I have learned so much about compassion, communication, and how to heal intelligently.

The medical community needs Healing Intelligence™

Communication in a medical setting must be more than questions, answers, and diagnoses passed between doctor and patient. Authentic, meaningful, and clear communication can only occur within a network that includes the patient, the patient’s family, and medical professionals in a mutual and ongoing conversation.

Empathetic, authentic communication is too often considered inefficient or unprofessional in a medical setting; it takes time, and requires an emotional investment that can’t be accounted for with a billing code. But during my decades-long career as a physician and practice owner — and with my experiences with my own illness and those of my family members — I’ve become convinced that meaning-rich, multi-directional communication is the key to better outcomes for patients and their caregivers.
