It Takes Courage…

It takes courage to be part of a profession where caring is critical and empathy for others is the focus. The profession of dentistry is not for the faint of heart. Too many of us struggle with anxiety, depression, strained relationships, leadership issues, and physical/emotional imbalances due to the extreme stress and responsibilities of the profession.

2018 Retreat for Dentists in Michigan!

Join me in Northern Michigan this July for a truly unique and inspirational experience.

Thursday, July 19 to Sunday, July 22

Are you ready to make more money with fewer working days and less stress?

Taking care of yourself will change your life.

“If you are a dentist struggling with stress — and let’s face it, that’s almost all dentists — it’s time to make a change.

Where do you begin to make that change? How do you get a handle on your practice and create a more balanced life? The answer is a coach who has been there to guide you through the process! The results a healthier you, a more cohesive team, and a thriving practice that operates with less stress than you ever thought possible.

I will show you how to transform yourself, your current practice and your team — the way you communicate, the way you do business, the way you manage and the way you interact with money — into a balanced team that works together and has the capacity to help more people in less time with maximum financial benefit.

When you find yourself struggling, it’s time to move in a different direction ..

Now is the time to reawaken your self-compassion and empowerment — to find a clearer vision and path to follow, one with greater personal freedom and less stress.

The wisdom of horses can guide you …

You will never forget what you learn from a 1200 pound animal. Deep self-discovery, the powerful connection between emotions and body, self-empathy, understanding — they are all part of the equine experience.

You can benefit from Dr. Bethany and her horses in a number of ways, but the most profound is to allow her to customize a program specifically for your needs.

Dr. Bethany Piziks Gareiss was a practicing dentist for over 20 years. She knows what you are experiencing on a very deep level, and also knows how the wisdom and guidance of horses can lead you to a better life, since she has walked that path. She is now deeply committed to inspiring dentists who long for purposeful direction to achieve balance and prosperity within the chaos of a dental practice, or make peace with their decision to transition onto a different path away from dentistry. No matter where you are within your journey as a dentist, Dr. Bethany offers the opportunity to create a better present and future.

Start Here …

As a dentist you know the importance of a comprehensive exam and treatment plan. Dr. Bethany’s process as your coach begins much the same way. First on the phone and then in person, with the horses, she will assist you in discovering where you are and where you want to go. Then a treatment plan is developed — a prescription for healing — which will help you achieve your goals in a way that works with your specific situation.

So let’s start with your “chief complaint” for a 30 minute exploratory session on the phone. It’s no cost — but even this 30 minute call can really make a difference in alleviating pain and clearing anxiety. During the call we will explore what you want and need and make a coaching plan that suits you.

“Dr. Bethany Piziks impressed me – first as my coaching client, then through her enthusiastic participation in all our workshops, Applied Strategic Planning twice, our NSC inner circle of leaders – as someone with integrity, high self awareness, foresight, great courage and as a leader with a genuine desire to help others. She built a top tier dental practice in Cadillac, MI., transitioned to a group practice, and then heard a higher calling. She left that successful, comfortable existence to build on her own life experience combining her two loves – helping others achieve highest potential and horses. If you’re one who believes all significant change begins within, you’re going to love your time with Bethany!” 

— Bob Frazer Jr, DDS, FACD, FICD

About Dr. Bethany Piziks Gareiss

Equine-Partnered Life Coach, Retired Dentist, Triathlete

Dr. Bethany is deeply committed to inspiring dentists who desire to achieve balance, peace, and prosperity within the challenges of working in a dental practice. A clinical dentist for over 20 years, six of them in a partnership, she knows what it’s like in the trenches.  In 1997 she started a practice from scratch and immediately realized she was enrolled in the “school of hard knocks,” and experienced the frustration that being a dentist entrepreneur can bring. After hiring a coach and seeing exponential progress in leadership, profitability, and personal growth, she discovered that helping others find the same satisfaction was her true life’s calling.

So she changed her career?

One of the most difficult and courageous decisions Bethany ever made was to leave a very successful career during peak years, and it didn’t happen overnight. However, being a visionary who follows her heart, it became clear that she had to do whatever it took to be free and follow her passion to help others. Defining core values, writing a clear vision, and living congruently in order to manifest that vision became her highest priority. She sold her practice, became a Certified Life Coach in 2012, and a Certified Equine Gestalt Coach in 2015. Helping others discover their own joy and purpose is at the core of how Bethany serves, and she is now in the business of restoring the human spirit instead of restoring teeth!

How do the horses fit in?

Horses have always been an important part of Dr. Bethany’s life. The mere presence of a horse is healing for the heart, and they speak to us in many ways. Combining the wisdom of horses and the positive effects of coaching, Dr. Bethany facilitates deeply impactful retreats that put restoring the heart and spirit center stage. Come and experience what the horses have to say. No one ever forgets what a 1200 pound animal teaches them!

When not in the horse barn coaching clients toward a life of peace and significance, you can find her spending time with the Love of her life, Bill. They enjoy camping, boating, eating healthy food, traveling, and playing with their grandchildren. You may also find her swimming, biking, or running to train for a triathlon race. In 2013 she completed a half-ironman. 
Being an adventurous, nature-loving spirit, Dr. Bethany also rode her horse across Michigan in 2014 from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron, 280 miles in 10 days, just for the adventure. It’s hard to say what might be next!

What is the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method?

The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method® was developed by Melisa Pearce, a core founder since 1989, of the horse-human healing movement. The experiential nature of the method involves the horse as an active partner with the coach in the client’s exploratory process. The integrative approach of the equine’s interaction combined with positive coaching, somatic awareness guidance and Gestalt methodology, assists the client in examining their life and choices made with a focus on designing a positive future.

Bethany carries a wonderful energy which fills the space of safety which she creates for her client.  Her approach is gentle yet direct and brings clarity to the work being done.”  Elizabeth W., Rhode Island

Bethany is a phenomenal coach with lots of enthusiasm and a whole lot of caring.  I highly recommend Bethany and her equine coaching services to anyone who wishes to enhance personal growth, progress and performance in their lives.
