“Less Stress. More Peace of Mind.”

~ Karen Sanders, MSN, RN, AHN-BC, HWNC-BC

The process of coaching is relationship centered, skilled, purposeful, structured, nurturing and promotes the attainment of client goals. I utilize a variety of coaching and communication tools to help clients access intuition and wisdom.
An RN Patient Advocate supports the well being of, intercedes on behalf of, or lends assistance to patients, their families, and their friends. I can assist anywhere along the healthcare continuum, for patients of any age, in any setting.
Tired of experiencing work-related stress and practice environment compromises? Nourish your entrepreneurial spirit and create your HOLISTIC RN PRIVATE PRACTICE. We want to personally help you plan, launch, and scale your own practice!

Death Café is an engaging gathering with storytelling and conversation about a topic that too often alienates people in our death-phobic culture. At Death Café, participants break into small groups of five or six people and discuss personal stories related to the death of loved ones; loss of jobs, relationships or marriages; or loss or death of parts of ourselves. These programs are facilitated by Karen Sanders, Greg Lathrop and Said Osio from Third Messenger.
