I work with many young adults who are emerging into adulthood without having yet found their passion and plan for life. I love working with clients in this part of their journey to help them discover their strengths and use those strengths to help them decide which step to take next. Transitioning into adulthood isn't easy and it always helps to have someone at your side.

Work can be an enormous source of stress for many people. For some it's a feeling of anxiety to perform under unrealistic expectations, for others it's due to work place conflict or unhealthy work environments. For others it's a feeling that their job just isn't the right fit. The first 20 years of my career I worked in human resources and business consulting for large and small companies and I have 10 years of experience doing workplace counseling and executive coaching. I will help you get to the root cause of your stress and begin to identify changes you can make to improve your work life and lead a less stressful life going forward.

Satisfaction with our environmental health - where we live, work & play - is one of the most important dimensions of life wellness. If we aren't happy or fulfilled with our careers or the location or company culture where we work then it is important to take action toward figuring out what exactly will make us happy because we typically spend 1/3 of the time in our day engaged in our careers. I meet people where they are at and seek to understand what is important to them & why. I utilize a career interest inventory to gather information about your unique personality and match that information to careers that may be more suitable to who you are and what you like to do.
