Welcome to Achieve Coaching Rx!
I am Dr. Debra Atkisson, a Physician Coach certified as an Executive Coach through the International Coaching Federation. Prior to coaching, I practiced psychiatry for 30 years during which time I consulted for helping professionals as well as whole agencies including hospitals, physician group practices, schools, therapist group practices, churches, and attorney groups. As an experienced physician who has practiced psychiatry and consulted with many different specialists regarding patients over the years, I understand the lives of physicians well. I have worked with medical students, residents, young attendings, mid-career physicians, and retiring physicians. In addition, I have worked individually with first responders: law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics.
As a certified coach, I use my experience and coaching skills to aid helping professionals achieve wellness and balance in their lives; empower them to determine what goals they wish to reach; and assist them in achieving those goals. I would love to help you!

We will work together to unlock the knowledge you have and to develop a plan that YOU co-create with me in the process of coaching. We work towards your success of achievement of your best self – that person you would like to be – and your best life.
