I help you design and manage a career and life you love


I help early career professionals design careers and mid career professionals manage careers that give them more happiness, vitality, flexibility and freedom in their lives.

You are a career-focused professional who strives for greater work-life balance. Your life is good, but something is missing in your career. You have the ability, skills, and capability.


But you’re feeling...


  • Confused about what to do next.
  • Worried about making the wrong decisions.
  • Lost on your purpose and passion for career and life.
  • Scared to leave your current career.
  • Afraid of failure.
  • Fearful of change.
  • Anxious facing the unknown.


You wonder could...


  • I design a career that I love?
  • I create a more meaningful well-lived life?
  • There be something more energizing? More fulfilling? More satisfying? More rewarding?
  • I use my talents, my interests, my skills, and my experience in a way that would motivate more meaning? More joy? More purpose?
  • I thrive and succeed in doing something else?

The answer is yes - I can help you do that.

Here’s why and how I help many people just like you:

Life is too short to be spent in a career that drains your energy, steals your joy and robs you of the freedom to choose how you want to spend your time. I believe you have limitless possibilities to share your unique talent, passion and purpose with the world.

I’ve developed a Career Design and Management Coaching Formula that is a clear, proven, trusted and reputable success path forward!

I help early career professionals design careers and mid career professionals manage careers that give them more happiness, vitality, flexibility and freedom in their lives. I focus on your success by helping you get unstuck to gain clarity and momentum in your work-life.


Specialties:


  • Career Launch
  • Career Transition
  • Career Clarity
  • Job Change
  • Job Burnout Recovery
  • Life-Work Balance Coaching
  • Life Coaching
  • Workplace Wellness

"When I was in high school and college, I didn’t have any career guidance, nor did I have anyone in my life asking me powerful questions to help me discover, develop and design a life and career path that I desired."


"Throughout these formative years, I was truly lost. Fortunately, because I am naturally curious, creative and have a love for learning, I invested in myself and tried a lot of new things."

"The downside was that I wasted a lot of time and valuable resources making poor decisions along my career path. If I would have had someone to engage with and trusted to challenge and guide me, I would have been much more proactive, confident, clear and conscious in my career choices."


"Out of my experience of not having this powerful person in my life, I am super passionate about helping people identify WHO they are by exploring their natural character strengths, values, interests and unique skill sets, so that they can discover, develop and define WHAT they want to do, whether they are just starting out or looking for a mid-career or midlife change."


"As a licensed mental health profession for over 15+ years, I have experience working therapeutically with anxiety, depression, overwhelm, chronic stress and grief that comes with job loss, life/career transitions. As a career-centered life coach, I help my clients get unstuck, recover from job burnout, and identify solutions to their barriers, so that they can move forward fearlessly into a bright future of their own design."


"I believe we all need guidance to help us unlock our possibilities and gain valuable knowledge about what our career options are. I believe that not only is it essential to access our natural talents, it’s also important to understand our challenges and identify blindspots, so that we can continue to grow and evolve personally and professionally."


"I didn’t have the guidance when I was starting out and I didn’t even know that there were career development practitioners that I could go to for help. It would have saved me a lot of time and an enormous amount of money, if I’d had support in making important life decisions at a young age and into my young adult years. Now that I am in my midlife, I love to offer guidance to those who want to discover a clear direction and be conscious about designing a career path that supports who they are and want to be."


My client’s will frequently tell me, “You nailed it when you said ________.” I am known for my keen insight that assists clients in the process of unlocking their possibilities to find a career that they can love for life.
