Where the magic starts

Hi! My name is Lara Salyer 🤗

I know how it feels. I was shocked to discover myself struggling with burnout 15 years into my career as an employed rural family medicine physician. (I even wrote a bestselling memoir about it)

I resigned from my employed position and opened my private functional medicine practice in 2017. I quickly realized that burnout can happen in any type of setting.

I witnessed heart-centered practitioners in their medical practices, hemorrhaging time and money, as they overworked and overstressed about delivering personalized medical care. They had all the signs of burnout: depersonalization, low perceived achievement, and emotional exhaustion. I created the Catalyst AHA!™ method as a retro-engineering of the burnout equation:

I was determined to create a new way to practice medicine without sacrificing your soul, so I started streamlining my own methods into a membership-style practice with fair and equitable pricing, group visits, and thoughtful attention to smart use of technology.

Fast forward to now and I’m helping hundreds of practitioners from across the globe like yourself catalyze their medical practice based on proven systems and flow.

I use my certification from the Institute for Functional Medicine and The Flow Research Collective’s High Flow Coaching and High Flow Leadership Academy to guide you in excavating your optimal self.

I believe that it’s possible to

  • have a medical practice that feels like home
  • infuse flow into your daily tasks and enjoy your career
  • turbo-boost your efficiency with the right systems
  • set empathetic and firm boundaries with patients
  • leverage creativity to enhance patient adherence and success
  • attract the right patient without a masters degree in marketing
  • burnout quickly, unless you have the right support in place


This mini-course is a sampler of lessons from the Catalyst Reclamation™ 10 hour CME course that teaches the full application of the AHA! Method™ to find more creativity and less burnout inside your work/life.

AND you'll also see some ✨BONUS content✨ specifically for Functional and Integrative practitioners of my favorite templates and resources I use in my Catalyst Studio™ Mentorship.

I value efficiency and agency, so I serve this mini-buffet of lessons "cafeteria style"---take what you like and skip the rest! 🤗

No matter which Catalyst™ service fits your needs, I approach mentoring sessions with the same anti-burnout foundation of "Anchor, Highlight, Activate." You can learn from the prep intake I have Catalysts™ complete before each mentoring session. Use these questions to guide your journey from burnout to bliss!

Time to wake up your inner Catalyst™,
