Dr. Tracie Walser is a DNP who practices nurse coaching which is more holistic in style, involving the mind, body, and spirit. Her role as a coach is listening to you at a deep level and assisting you to sort out your options, explore new possibilities, identify strengths and challenges, and look within yourself for answers. When in a coaching role, Tracie will encourage you to explore your issues, perspectives, hopes, and dreams. If you would like specific input from Tracie, she can switch to a consulting role briefly and offer ideas or additional information for you to consider, with you being the one who sorts through the information and decides what might be useful for you.
Tracie is committed to cultivating a successful coach-student relationship within a non-judgmental and confidential environment to allow for authenticity in the working relationship.
