About Me

What if you could have a successful career, be an amazing mom, take care of yourself, and do it all with ease?

You can!

You may feel like you’ve been trying to do it all for so long, without knowing if “it all” is something you really want to be doing. Maybe you feel like there is too much out of your control and don’t know how anything could change. Maybe you feel like you’ve tried every time management hack to improve your efficiency as a doctor and as a mom, but things just aren’t falling into place.

I know how you feel, because I’ve been there!

I’m Ashwini Nayak, MD. I’m a physician, and a life coach for physician moms. I’m married and have a 3-year-old son. At one point soon after I started practice and became a mom, I remember feeling out of control. Driven to succeed and wanting to do “everything”, as many of us amazing physician moms do, I felt overwhelmed and burned out as I tried to juggle the life of being a new mom and a practicing physician. 

Do you feel overwhelmed having more patients to see, more notes to write, and always having work on your mind? Do you find it difficult to disconnect from work? Do you feel a lack of presence and distracted when you’re at home? You’re not alone.

After years of neglecting myself, I realized it was time to end this struggle once and for all. I needed to be healthy and happy -- for myself, my husband, my son, my family, and my patients.

I started working with a life coach and my life changed. I learned how to be back in control and was happy again. Priorities were clear and so I made time for what was most important to me. I became more efficient at work and more in control of how I ran my practice. I was more present with my son and husband. I started to focus on taking care of myself. I had always loved medicine and taking care of my patients, but I learned how to enjoy the gift of practicing medicine without being so frustrated by the health care system and how it influenced my work.

My passion is working with doctors who are committed to digging deep to understand themselves in order to create the lives that they want.

As I saw my life change, I envisioned the potential for my physician mom colleagues like you. This is why I became a certified life and weight coach through The Life Coach School. This work is unlike anything I had encountered before and I am confident in saying that if you apply the principles in your daily life, you will see a permanent positive change in your life. You are already an amazing mom and leader doing great things, both in and out of the home. But likely, you have challenges of your own that you are trying to figure out. You may have tried a lot of things but nothing has panned out. But there is a solution – and yes, you can reclaim your time. What will you do with your reclaimed time? I know you will do even more amazing things in your life and have more fun along the way. If you could know that anything was possible for you, what would you do? What life would you want to create?

You will see results when you apply this work.

I offer you a customized approach to solving your time management problems, and to help you start to overcome the overwhelm, frustration, and guilt about the choices you make about work and home. You have worked so hard to get to this point. It is possible to fully enjoy the life you have created and to be in full control as you move forward.

Coaching with me will be different than anything you’ve done before. I don’t give medical advice, and I don’t tell you what to do. I know you already have the answers you are looking for and will help you find them. From a compassionate, but neutral perspective, I help you create solutions by understanding the root cause of your time management woes. If you want to see a change in your life and create different results, you need to do something different. Doing something different can be scary and uncomfortable, but it’s what will help you grow and create the life you want.

Are you ready to go all in?

I am. Let me help you make it happen.
