We tell our patients, "don't wait until you're symptomatic to come and see us."


So, why do we wait until we are symptomatic?



This program will help you break-through self-doubt, fear of failure and overworking so you can feel confident from within about your decisions, your abilities, AND your priorities.


This is . . . LIFE and BUSINESS coaching for Women Dentists.

It will help you realize:

- you HAVE the power of choice

- you HAVE the power of control

- you HAVE the power to start creating life on YOUR terms


So, why not start now?

Take me to the details of the program

Before we talk about the program specifics,

I want you to know that you have made it to the right place.


  • How many times have you thought that others "have it all together" but for you, something is missing?
  • How many times have you sacrificed the "now" for the hope that the future will be better . . . but the future never arrives?
  • How many times have you woke up thinking, "Today will be better" but something happens and you feel like your happiness is always out of reach?

If you answered 'once', 'more than once,' or absolutely agree...then you are in the right place!


Maybe you're a dentist who is

suffering in silence and feels alone.

Whether it's something specific or something general, you feel like you are out on a branch absolutely alone. You want to know you aren't the only one out there and the only one feeling these feelings.


Maybe you're a dentist who is

living their 'perfect' life but feel like something is missing.

You're in clinic all day. You wear multiple hats (at home and at the office). You have no energy at the end of the day. You feel like there should be more than what exists now.


Maybe you're a dentist who is

tolerating certain behaviours and unable to set clear boundaries.

You feel like the staff run you, or other colleagues don't listen, or senior peers try to speak over you. You're fed up and KNOW something has to change but don't know what that change is.


Maybe you're a dentist who is

anxious and overwhelmed.

You feel like your self-doubt and perfectionist tendencies are holding you back, keeping you stuck, keeping you from being your authentic self . . . keeping you from being unapologetically YOU!


Maybe you're a dentist who is

indecisive about the next decision in their life.

You're an associate who thinks it's time to leave because the office is no longer working for you. Maybe it's time to open an office. Maybe it's time to leave. Maybe it's time to find more outside of dentistry.


Maybe you're a dentist who is

just wanting to be happy.


If any of those describes how you feel,



There is no magic pill.

There is no quick fix.

There is no one-size-fits-all.


It means truly wanting to make a change and working with coaches who understand what you're feeling . . .

Story Time


I thought I hid it well. I was a happy person, always laughing and energetic. Dental school was hard, but we all have to get through it.

But, as much as we learned clinical, dental school didn't teach us what was going to come next.

I found practicing difficult. I was always searching for mistakes. I was always overworking. I was never good enough. I had a constant fear that something was going to go wrong and that I wasn't going to be able to handle it . . . so I feared the worst all the time.

If I feared it, then I could plan for it . . . right?

When I started to enjoy something . . . anything . . . I quickly resorted to fear because I knew it was only a matter of time before the shoe was going to drop.

I kept getting by just wishing I will make it to the next vacation so I could 'take a break'...but taking a break meant I would crash.

It didn't matter how many vacations I took, or spa days I had...I was never going to feel rested.

This turned into not being able to sleep, to irritability and always feeling exhausted.

I thought this was how dentistry was supposed to be. Chronically fatigued, always looking for mistakes and underestimating my abilities.

My hope: make it to retirement and then enjoy my life . . .

Does this sound familiar?

Dentistry may be BROKEN . . . but YOU don't have to be.

The non-clinical coaching program that you didn't realize you needed.

Why Do I Do What I do?


  • To encourage the uncomfortable conversations
  • Create safe spaces so each person can be vulnerable sharing doubts and fears but also the joys and awesomeness
  • Reduce mental health stigma
  • Normalize asking for help

 Jessica has spent YEARS figuring out why high-achieving women experience self-doubt, fear of failure and have a hard time finding self-confidence. 

Jessica's mission: Her's life works is to help professional women break-free from self-doubt, fear of failure and overworking. She wants you to challenge your thoughts, emotions and behaviours around perfectionism, self-worth and your mental well-being.
