“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!

“Karen’s intervention on my behalf may well have saved my life.”
