Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

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.

Finding or changing a career is more about your self-image than anything else. Ask me. I changed careers in my 50’s. “What do you want to do?” is only the first question. How do you want to live is the important question. Let me use my personal experience to help you through the fears and self-doubts that come with making a major change in your life. I can tell you this: if you are waiting until you have no doubts, you will wait forever. By the way, if you are retired or planning retirement, that is a career change. It was fun getting up every morning with nothing on the agenda, for, what, six months? Then you got up thinking about what the rest of your life was about. Come explore this.

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.
