What I do as a Coach

I move my clients from a place where they are constantly overwhelmed by demands, responsibilities, and obligations, and provide them with the tools to live with more ease and flow. I guide them in growing their strengths and developing the skills to create a new framework for engaging with their lives in a way that allows them to create more impact, more connection, and discover greater fulfillment in who they are and what they do.

My Topics

  • How can I mange my stress?
  • Conflicts with co-workers or with loved ones
  • Feeling stuck in my career/my life
  • Transitioning into a new role
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Confidently making a decision
  • Being a better leader
  • Improving communication skills
  • Learning how to create boundaries more effectively
  • Recovering from/dealing with a difficult challenge
  • Burnout

My Ideal Client

My ideal client is the doctor who is seeking more: more clarity, more confidence, more satisfaction, and more joy. It is the keenly intelligent, highly self-motivated and achievement oriented physician who appears to “have it all”, but yet does not feel satisfied. It is the doctor who goes home almost every evening feeling like “their cup is empty”, and doesn’t understand how it is they got there. It is the doctor who has always believed that by working harder and achieving more he/she will reach the ever moving finish line to happiness, but now is not so sure, and is ready to try a different way of being.

What does client success looks like?

Client success is seen in CONNECTION-In the the ability of the client to be more connected to themselves and to others by being more emotionally and mentally present in every moment and interaction. It is connection that gives meaning and purpose to our lives, so this is indeed the greatest success.

About the Coach

Dr. Cecilia Cruz is a 20 plus year Emergency Medicine veteran, who now owns and runs her own coaching business, MARPE, LLC, a Life-Balance and Mental Fitness coaching company for physicians. Understanding all the challenges that doctors face, MARPE’s aim is to provide its clients with the tools to overcome difficult situations with greater clarity, less stress, and a stronger sense of purpose. Dr. Cruz’s goal is to help doctors reignite their passion and experience higher satisfaction and fulfillment in their careers and personal lives. After being confronted by a challenging health situation, Dr. Cruz was driven to discover a new way of approaching her life that could provide her with more purpose and fulfillment. She realized that for most of her adult life she had been feeling like she was on a never-ending roller coaster ride of demands, obligations, and achievements that were propelled by thoughts of ,“I’ll be happy when…”, that never permitted her any true enjoyment of her life in the present. In her quest she found coaching which provided her with the possibility of taking part in her life in a much richer and satisfying way. In fact, coaching made such a tremendous impact in her life that she now seeks to advance coaching as a well accepted and valued resource for career satisfaction, personal growth, and wellbeing amongst doctors. She wants to provide doctors with the opportunities and the tools to learn a new framework for engaging with the challenges they face that leads to increased clarity, stronger connections, and less stress; thereby bringing about a greater sense of satisfaction and meaning. Dr. Cruz is a fully certified coach through the Co-Active Training Institute and the International Coaching Federation. She has undergone additional training in Positive Intelligence and Mental Fitness, and she is a fellow of the Institute of Coaching. She is currently also a writer for the blog, Authentic Medicine, where she gives tips on how we can train our brains to find the gift in every moment.
