As a young stroke survivor, Jonathan Miller founded Enter Stage Left to help others in similar situations and to educate professionals on how to better work with the patients who need them.

From personal experience, he found there was too often a gap between the practices introduced in hospitals or during therapy and what survivors need in real-life settings. Research supports his experience.

At Enter Stage Left, we are professional coaches offering services and resources based on S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Wellness Planning that focuses on The Person Behind the Patient.

An event was going to happen that would change my life.

My body and strength would be taken away.

All that remained was my damaged brain, my heart and my soul.

It was my job to heal myself.

I would build myself back from a wheelchair and hospital bed.

I would learn a great deal and speak of the triumph.

This is how I want it written, when the time comes.

-Jonathan Miller

Coaching within a Framework

Our approach is based on a framework consisting of the Eight (8) Dimensions of Wellness, along with an exploration of character strengths and values, as well as S.M.A.R.T.E.R. goal setting.

It's worth noting that the framework is just that - a framework that is there to guide our coaching sessions - recognizing there's room to flex based upon the results of our time together.

We host a free 30-minute exploratory call to enable you to get more information about our coaching approach and services and for you to share your needs with us. That allows us time to determine how we might be able to help you and how we can best work together.

The Framework

Eight (8) Dimensions of Wellness

Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Physical, Occupational, Social and Spiritual. Each has an impact on our wellness and quality of life.

Character Strengths & Values

Knowing and applying your character strengths can have a significant positive impact on your quality of life.

S.M.A.R.T.E.R. Goal Setting

Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, Time-bound, Evaluated and Revised based on progress. A proven framework in a variety of settings.
