Dr. Nicole Eull

Hello there!  I’m super glad that you came by to check things out.

First things first…

It’s important for you to know that if you are looking for someone to deliver serious information in a formal way with slides full of words, then you are most definitely in the wrong place.  Thanks for stopping by and I wish you luck in your search.

Oh!  You’re still here.  Spectacular!  So you are a risk-taker, an inspirational leader, a concerned colleague, or maybe just the schmuck who volunteered to coordinate this year’s wellness event.  I’m happy to help but let’s get some things straight.  I may make your audience laugh (a lot) and then they might cry too.  They may leave with big ideas and practical suggestions to implement those ideas.  They may watch videos and see colorful pictures (some of my super adorable children).  They will likely be asked to stand up, move around and talk to strangers.

I love to talk about integrative medicine, integrative mental health, stress management, cultural competence, anger management, and effective communication.  I’ve had the pleasure of doing this here in the U.S. and internationally with healthcare organizations, professional groups, and corporations.  I have not had the opportunity to do this from a villa in Tuscany but I figure that’s coming soon.

So why should you care what I have to say?  Do I have any credibility? Such a good question! I am the Director of Behavioral Medicine for the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Family Medicine and Public Health Residency program at Aurora Healthcare.  That is the longest title in the history of titles. I helped develop the Integrative Medicine and Community Medicine rotations there and now I am developing a program to improve physician engagement and satisfaction.

I partner with Watertown Regional Medical Center ONE Wellness Program to provide a mindfulness series for their corporate wellness contracts and consult with the hospital on their Medical Provider Professional Development and Wellness Initiative.  In the last few years I have been asked to do a lot of individual and group physician coaching and program development in multiple settings.

Guess what!  I can also do hypnosis.  Isn’t that cool!  I haven’t figured out how to use that skill to get my husband to put the dishes away but it has been a tremendous tool to help people make really big changes.

It might help to know a little about the kind of person I am.  I love yoga and I’m a certified yoga instructor so you never know when we’ll throw some good stretches in. I love speaking Spanish which I consider a hobby related to my greatest passion which is travel.  I have a ridiculously patient husband and two of the greatest kids on the planet.  I really enjoy cooking, gardening, doing yoga, scuba diving, reading, community service and lots of family time with my husband, daughter, and son.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little better.  I think making a personal connection is important to build trust and engagement but some people may want some objective measures of my credibility so here are a few…

  • B.A. – Psychology, minor in Spanish, St. Louis University, St. Louis, MO
  • M.A. – Clinical Psychology, American University, Washington, DC
