Do you work long distance?

Yes, I work nationally and internationally via phone or zoom video conferencing. 

How long will it take?

The number of meetings (in person or by telephone) will vary based on what you want to accomplish. Here are some examples: 

  • Job change: 6-10 meetings
  • Career change: 8-14 meetings
  • One career issue: 1- 4 meetings

Many clients want to work with a career counselor over time in an ongoing coaching arrangement.

How do I get started?

The first step in my process is to schedule a Free Consultation with me so that we can discuss what your current challenges are. Then from here, I will provide you with my recommendations. If we choose to work together, I will discuss the details with you at this time. If we choose not to work together, I will provide an appropriate referral.
