Life looks different now than when you started down your career path. Let’s take stock of what’s important to you — where you’ve come from and where you are  — then determine where you want to go.

Ready for Career Change?

You’re confident in who you are and what you can do; you know yourself. And you know that right now, something isn’t right. You’re out of alignment professionally. Whether it’s work/life balance, a dead-end job or golden handcuffs, you feel like you’re in the wrong place.

As a career coach, I help clients find the a better fitting job, accelerate their current career, or go after their dream gig.

You probably had different financial circumstances at age 20 than you do now; you may have outgrown the job you had and are looking to transfer those skills to a new field.  Or did you take the wrong job when you were younger, and now you’re looking to move on from it? Perhaps becoming a parent has changed your professional priorities? These are all reasons that clients come to me.

Changing careers can be both a scary and exciting time. And having a partner who can help you through it makes it easier to manage, (dare I say fun?) and increases the likelihood of you ending up in a more satisfying place.

What are the Benefits of Working with a Career Coach?

I understand the specific nuances of rethinking a career, and can apply a proven process and method to your decision making at this time. I have experience working with people who have successfully changed careers, understand the modern challenges of dual (or single) income homes, the challenges balancing child care, work, a commute and young children.

As a career coach, I listen to what you want, ask insightful questions so that you can get in touch with your own desires, and help you find an employment situation that gives you greater professional and personal satisfaction.

Why You Should Work With A Career Coach?

A career coach will help you break from your existing patterns of thinking and help you create new options. You’ll see opportunity, possibility and feel the momentum you need to pursue career change. I will also hold you accountable, on a week-to-week basis, managing your job search like a real project manager.

5 Coaching Questions To Celebrate Closure

One of my favorite aspects of coaching is that closure is built into the relationship from the start. As adults, closure isn’t build into our lives as frequently as was when we were children. Think of activities or projects you’ve experienced with premeditated closure: there’s college, summer camp or high school. But as adults, closure is elusive. You rarely start […]
