Guiding Clients to More Fulfilling Careers & Happier Lives 

Are you looking for a professional to help you navigate the complex issues of your career? How to find a new career that better suits your likes, strengths, and values? How to make your current career work better for you? How to land a great job? How to create the best resume, how to network more effectively, or how to conduct the best interview? I offer the unique benefit of helping solve career issues from four different perspectives: As a coach I know the techniques to keep you focused and motivated.  As a leader of business and non-profit organizations I can provide you with a wealth of insights on career advancement. As a marketing expert I can teach you how to position and "sell" yourself.  And as a psychotherapist, I can help you uncover obstacles and/or interests that are much more likely to surface through insightful questioning and dialogue than in static personality or career testing.  With these multiple, objective perspectives we will be able to develop creative, actionable, and effective solutions.
