Through the Live Well Foundation, MCMS is excited to offer free, confidential counseling services
that support physician well-being, resilience, and growth.
Live Well is intended to provide a safe harbor for physicians to address everyday life difficulties
in a confidential and professional environment.
The LWF has contracted with independent physicians and doctorate-level therapists who have been evaluated by the Live Well Foundation Board of Directors. These licensed professionals are experienced in counseling health care providers and have demonstrated dedication to the needs of the MCMS physician. Our providers will maintain a confidential file for each physician. No insurance will be billed and the Live Well Foundation or MCMS will not be given any identifying information about those who utilize the program. The Live Well Foundation will pay providers based on the number of sessions conducted.
Live Well is a confidential service offered to Madison County physicians. Usage of these services does not need to be disclosed on hospital privilege applications.
We will provide up to 3 complimentary sessions per calendar year.
Although the LWF Directors have vetted the contracting therapists for general suitability, basic qualifications, and Alabama licensure to provide services, we do not independently verify their credentials nor do we guarantee their suitability for any particular issue for which a MCMS member may seek therapy. Referrals can be made to psychiatric care for more complex medical needs.

Certification in Gottman Method Couples Therapy
"I am so excited and passionate about my practice of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. It gives me a powerful structure that is based on the best science. Couples learn the skills to manage conflict in a calm and constructive manner. You also learn how to increase intimacy and friendship to re-capture those loving feelings. It is grounded on what actually works in relationships that are happy and stable, not idealistic notions or anecdotal evidence of what marriage ought to be."
