My Approach to Helping

Do you struggle to earn enough money to sustain yourself? Do you find yourself chronically underemployed or working for difficulties with bosses who treat you poorly or are abusive? Do you feel as if you never had a chance to decide"what you wanted to be when you grow up?" Do you have trouble writing your resume? Do you feel terrified of interviewing? Have you ever felt as if everyone else you know is doing well with their work lives but don't perceive yourself similarly? Do you have trauma or abuse in your background?

If these questions resonate with you, your trauma may be impacting and affecting your ability to develop a healthy and sustainable work life. Trauma-Informed Career Development Counseling (T-ICDC) may be helpful,

If you see yourself in my earlier questions or are just curious about how your trauma may be influencing your ability to feel like a successful working person, please call me. I am happy to speak with you, free of charge, for an initial consultation and assess if working together will help you get where you want to be in life.
