Hi, I’m Annie Hempstead, a Certified Integral Coach. I have a background in medicine: I am a UCSF trained physician, and I completed residency in psychiatry and a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Stanford. I worked as an assistant professor at Stanford, and then practiced at Kaiser Permanente, providing mental health care for adults, families and kids. I retired from Kaiser a few years ago, trained in the Professional Coaching Program at New Ventures West in San Francisco, and now provide developmental and life coaching.
Coaching can help with many issues. Here are a few examples.
• Work life balance and burnout.
• Developing healthy mind body practices.
• Relationship challenges; family, intimate/dating, and professional.
• Effective communication; listening and expressing needs at home and at work.
• Staying calm and resilient during stressful events.
• Elder wellness, joy, and wisdom.
I enjoy music, art, and being in nature. I practice yoga, pilates and meditation. I’m a mom, and know a bit about work life balance, and also about recognizing and recovering from burnout. I love playing the ukulele and guitar. I’m a just ok musician, and I can barely sing, but I don’t let that stop me!
