My Story

Image - Linda Bolle I’ve always loved a challenge, which is probably a good thing, because living with a condition that’s left me legally blind since birth has offered me plenty! Even so, when life wasn’t handing me a challenge, I’d create one of my own, or else help others conquer theirs. To date, I’ve earned four advanced degrees, all of which equipped me with the knowledge and skills needed to assist others in overcoming their obstacles, whether they be physical, technical, or psychological. And if all that wasn’t enough, I went ahead and forged a fourth career as a coach! Why? Because I’m passionate about helping people become the best versions of themselves and live their lives to the fullest; and that’s what coaching is all about!

Prior to my arrival on the coaching scene, I spent the better part of two decades working with physicians and advanced practice clinicians, both collegially (as an interdisciplinary team member) and clinically (as a psychologist). I’ve seen these providers at their best, their worst, and everything in between; I’ve learned a great deal from this on-the-job training, and have carried this knowledge and skillset into my coaching practice.

As a psychologist, I attest to the fact that some providers benefit greatly from psychotherapeutic interventions. As a coach, I assert, without hesitation, that all providers can derive a great deal from coaching!

As a whole-life coach, I work with physicians and advanced practice clinicians who’ve lost sight of their own needs and wants in the midst of meeting the needs and wants of others. I help them clarify their priorities and achieve goals that lead to the happiest, healthiest, and most fulfilling lives imaginable!

And even as I share my clients’ delight in discovering, or re-discovering, what truly brings them to life, I realize that, in the process of doing so, I’m honoring my own values, which include curiosity, creativity, uniqueness, freedom, playfulness, kindness, quiet confidence, and comfort, both the physical and the in-my-own-skin kind.

According to the prolific writer Mary Oliver, each of us has been granted but “one wild and precious life.”

If you’re living that life of yours in a way that doesn’t completely honor every aspect of your being—physical, social, emotional, and spiritual—please contact me. Working together, we’ll design and build you a life that surpasses your wildest dreams!
