With the increasing stress and pressure physicians are facing, SSVMS is committed to providing all physicians access to competent, convenient and cost-free professional counseling. SSVMS will sponsor up to six (6) wellness sessions with vetted psychologists and/or life coaches for physicians that practice in Sacramento, El Dorado, Yolo, and/or Placer Counties.
To schedule an appointment, contact a Vetted Provider directly, and let them know that you are a physician accessing the SSVMS Joy of Medicine Program.
Joy of Medicine Psychologists are well versed in the needs of physicians. They are contracted and licensed providers, not employees of the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society.
Joy of Medicine Life Coaches are experienced in working with the unique needs of physicians. They are contracted independent consultants, not employees of the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society. Please note that life coaches are not licensed therapists.
“I found the therapist to be experienced with the concerns of a professional. She has provided me with a lot of strategies to facilitate bouncing back from the stressors of work and life. I LOVE it! It is contributing to a refreshed attitude toward my career!”
