My Approach to Helping
*** I have immediate openings for teletherapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty. Start with a free-20-minute intake! ***
My philosophy of helping clients in career counseling is a collaborative one to help you get the results you are seeking, faster than trying to get there on your own. It's okay to ask for support as it can provide additional perspective, hold us accountable to meeting goals we set out, and help us increase feelings of confidence. I can help with...
CAREER EXPLORATION - What do I want to be when I grow up?
We'll work together on getting clear on your values, strengths, interests and personality preferences as it relates to various career opportunities, which may include assessments like the Myers Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®). I'll also introduce you to online occupational resources.
CAREER TRANSITION - How do I shift my career?
We can develop a plan to navigate the change that is happening or approaching which could include changing careers, industries, re-entering the workforce after an extended break, and dealing with job loss.
I will bring you up to speed on resume and cover letter writing, LinkedIn profile and effective job searching trends, the latest interviewing techniques, tips for expanding your network and negotiating for the job that you deserve.
CAREER MANAGEMENT - What can I do to improve my career development?
We'll identify the challenges you are facing, on-the-job, to develop and implement solutions to help you thrive at work. Whether you are adjusting to a new supervisor or team, seeking to gain leadership experience, preparing for a promotion, or anticipating a reorganization, I can provide a safe space to assess risks and opportunities.
Are you ready to take your career to the next level?

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
It was March 2008 and I just got fired from a job at a "really cool" company but I was in a role that wasn't a good fit. Even though I could see the termination coming, It was devastating - a shot to my ego and I found it difficult to get out of bed for about a week. As I was grieving this loss I began to gain interest in thinking about careers that would help others going through what I experienced - taking a job I didn't like, working for a difficult boss, grieving a job loss, and re-discovering my purpose.
I sought out a career counselor and began networking to build a group of support to help me feel confident in re-entering the workforce. Soon after, I began working at a temp agency and was placed in a career center and LOVED it; at the time I was the receptionist and was soaking up anything I could from my co-workers and eventually I was helping others deciding on careers, writing resumes, interviewing for jobs, and celebrating job offers. I decided to pursue this as a career, as I never wanted anyone to feel alone in this process.
Looking back, the termination was pivotal to move me into something else and I'm very grateful it happened because it forced me to grow and get to know myself better. It'd be an honor to work with you through your career discovery.
