This one-on-one coaching experience is designed to take place at weekly or bimonthly intervals to support you in your Narrative Medicine journey. Like a group workshop, each private session will build your close reading, reflective writing, and attentive listening skills. Unlike a group workshop, the focus of each private session will be tailored to you and your unique goals. Meetings are one-hour long and explore a range of Narratively-inspired topics including philosophy, ethics, activism, poetry, memoir, visual art, and stories of all kinds. No experience or medical affiliation needed. Each session is $100/hour payable by Venmo or PayPal. Sliding scale available. Reach out to Julia at [email protected] for details.

  • Are you ready for a deep dive into your own self-stories: the ones you’ve been telling, and the ones you want to tell?

  • Are you curious about the philosophy behind Narrative Medicine and ready to learn more?

  • Do you have a story to tell, but need some help finding, refining, or directing your voice?

  • Are you looking for an accountability partner to help you achieve your creative goals?

  • Are you wondering how to integrate Narrative Medicine practices into your personal or professional life?


“One-on-one coaching has simultaneously brought more breadth and depth to my personal development, in numerous areas of life. The discussions are intertwining, an ever encircling flow of philosophy, poetry, art and self exploration. Narrative medicine coaching extends beyond the paper and into the clinic, into the home, granting us pause, appreciation and understanding in the patients we treat and the personal relationships we keep. Julia is creative, passionate and invests herself in the sessions. The concepts that were shared in the initial session have been called upon, not foundational, but ever building upon as we are 'becoming.' Julia has become the conductor of this two person orchestra as together we weave a web of collaboration. Cocooning myself each session and giving rise like the butterfly, full of life, wonder and beauty. Every session, experience, has been instrumental in my development. I would highly recommend others to work with Julia Schneider. ”
