A successful career contains more than money. One's emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing need to be challenged within a tolerable range to maintain a sustained level of interest, advancement, and growth. What we experience as limitation in career is related to how we see ourselves and how we perceive the world. Areas of stagnation and deadness within career are related to conscious and unconscious biases that prevent us from accessing what could be possible. I work collaboratively with professionals to identify these areas while providing new ways of relating to one's self and career.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Having made a career transition myself in my mid-thirties, I understand the variety of issues involved with this process. Some may know what they want to do but have difficulty managing the transition, for financial or other reasons. Others may lack clarity about what they even want to do, while others still may be uncertain if the primary issue resides with their work or other factors which make it unsatisfactory, such as a difficult manager, or concerns around performance or self-confidence. Our work is an important dimension of our lives and an expression of who we are, so wherever the block lies, I'll help you resolve the impediments that are in the way of having a fulfilling career.

Life is short. Going to a job everyday that you hate is a good way to waste it. Knowing what job is right for you is not easy. You really need to look at who you are and what you want from life. Getting to know who you are, and not who your parents, spouse, or children think you are is one of life's most difficult challenges. What I love doing most is helping people discover who they really are. But, once you know who you are and what you want to do, you also need to develop a reasonable transition plan to get from here to there. This takes a grounded and realistic approach in additon to liberating your creative juices. Being both a visionary and an engineer, I can help you master both.
