There's No Time

The Empowered Self-Revolution Lab To Disrupt The Status Quo For Medspouses

Dare to Disrupt The Status Quo?

You've nurtured others, now it's time to nurture yourself.


You've stood in the shadows, you've lived exhausted and lonely behind the scenes, you've put your career aside, and you've posted anonymously in your groups! Yup, check! You've done it willingly and with gratitude--now you are noticing the effects of the stress--on you, your family, and your husband. You feel deeply disconnected but always there.


It's like you watch your life as a movie, but you are not really in it.


You wonder how long can we go at this pace before

we crash and burn? You live against the clock grabbing stolen

seconds of time-- still-- those moments lack the sizzle! The warm, and comfortable sensations of your muscles relaxing in their arms is missing.


You feel like you are in a race against rounds as you call the shots from the bench------high-speed, and big tension feels familiar in your body----with no rest in sight.

In the heart of medicine's high-stress environment, medspouses have been the unsung heroes, silently shouldering the burdens while life passes in a blur of responsibilities.


You know you are blessed, yet you have needs too. The truth is, you've spent so many years putting everyone and everything first, you may not know what those needs are anymore.


You've been shunting all of your resources to everyone else and you are just getting through the day.


In the self-revolution lab, the isolated become empowered and connected.

The overlooked become leaders of their legacy--they lead the narrative of their own stories. They influence their loved ones by training them to have strong mental and emotional resources--

because you now possess them!

The already strong, become stronger by locking arms with

other strong medspouses in a safe community where they belong, cultivating skills their families flourish under.

It's time to shift the focus from survival & autopilot (average living and leadership) to thriving (above-average living and leadership)!

It's time to shift the focus from isolation to profound connection--even if nothing changes in medicine! 


Why Cultivating Connection?

Imagine having a safety net of people who really "get" you. Imagine being able to flop down on the couch after a long day and just spill everything that's on your mind, knowing the person listening isn't going to judge you. They see you for who you are—in both your brilliance and imperfection—and they're cheering you on or handing you tissues when you need them. 

It's the comfort of texting a friend out of the blue with a random thought, knowing they'll appreciate it, or sitting in silence without it being awkward because you're both just happy being in the same space. You don't have to wear any masks or perform; you're loved and accepted as is.

And you're equally ready to be their rock or their soft landing spot whenever they need it. It's genuine, no-strings-attached care and understanding, making you feel like you belong, no matter what. It is a no-judgment zone that feels safe and secure---where you can breathe, grow, and let your brilliance shine!


Imagine being about to accomplish more with your energy because you are no longer wasting that energy hiding your real thoughts to "fit in" and swimming against the tide. Imagine having energy left to cultivate this same intimacy with your spouse, and kids because you've already got the tools--your brain!

Why Self-Revolution? It takes self-revolution to learn new patterns when you feel like you are on an island by yourself, yet you are surrounded by people. Because this internal ache for real connection--- to be a part of something with someone who gets you is grating on you--even if your brain resorts to your old way of reacting.

Let's face it, doing life alone is not the way our brain is wired, superficial talk leaves you feeling invisible and hiding behind a mask. Like there's an invisible wall that keeps you separate. These are patterns we've gotten stuck in because we've been burned before--it is just your brain trying to keep you safe.


Discover the support you have been looking for and become part of something bigger as you re-learn how real connection is developed!

The 3D Self-Revolution Formula:
A Clear Path To Having Your Inner and Outer Worlds Match

Tami L, TX

"Before working with Doreen, I felt like I was constantly on edge, like my own body was somehow against me because of all the stress and tension I was carrying around all the time. But after six months, things have really changed. Doreen showed me how to look at all that tension in a whole new light – like it’s actually trying to tell me something, not just make my day harder. Now, I’ve got this knack for taking a little breather, even when everything’s hectic, to figure out what’s really going on with me, both in my head and my body. And instead of letting all that stress knock me off course, I’ve got these awesome tools Doreen gave me to find my calm again, no matter what’s happening. It’s like I can handle other people’s needs and my own without losing myself to stress. I never thought I could feel this grounded and true to myself in the middle of all the craziness."

The Self-Revolution Lab

This is an experiential learning lab where you will think, create, discover, discern, and decide in community with other medspouses who are on the same journey as you. The power of a judgment-free, no-fix zone where each participant can show up as they are: in their brilliance and imperfection. There is room to breathe!

Imagine developing relationships where the people in your life really get each other. It's like having friends or family who know the real you, warts and all, and still think you're awesome. You can talk about anything, whether you're laughing till your sides hurt or sharing something that's got you down, and they're right there with you. You don't have to pretend or hide parts of yourself; you can just be you. And it's a two-way street—you're there for them just as much. It's feeling safe enough to share your thoughts and feelings without worrying they'll bail on you.

Basically, it's developing the kind of relationships where you feel seen, heard, and valued for who you truly are and it's not a burden--

it feels great!
