career coaching

The work we do each day has an incredible impact on how we experience the world, understand ourselves, and relate to others. We make decisions about where we live, whether or not and how we will build families, the way we spend our free time, and so much more based on our work. 


So many of us want to do work that is meaningful - and to feel like the work we do matters. Finding an industry, organization, and role that match your skills/passions is a big part of that equation. That, alone, can feel hard enough to nail down. Determining your purpose and what brings you joy, on top of that, can feel elusive. Some of us wonder if we will ever get that experience in this life time.


The good news is there are ways that we can demystify the process together and build confidence along the way. Deepening your understanding of your hopes and unmet needs; reacquainting yourself with the creative and curious parts of you that you've probably quieted over the years; and articulating your values will help demystify the process. These are essential components of building a career that will sustain and help you leave a mark. 

Sound Familiar?


Feeling Misunderstood / Undervalued

Struggling in your current job - feeling undervalued and misunderstood. Feeling defensive and judged day-in, and day-out.


Craving Significant Change

Considering a major career change and have no idea where to start. Interested in another industry but don't know what education and certifications are actually needed to succeed.


Worried About Major Change

Love your work but worry about changes happening and what that means for you. If AI, mergers and acquisitions, ageism, or a new role are relevant - this is you. 


Struggling with Burn Out

If you feel exhausted and irritable; have noticed the "fire in your belly" has been extinguished from the last few years' challenges; or dread getting out of bed in the morning for work - it's time to address this. You deserve relief and joy in your work day.

Why Coaching?

Coaching is a powerful tool as you navigate life's greatest opportunities and challenges. Although it may feel uncomfortable to invite an outsider into your process, the right person can provide invaluable perspective to expand your awareness. Hear Atul Gawande describe his experience getting coaching, and considering the power of coaching for others in healthcare.

Hear from Career Clients

"It felt good to be seen and understood. This process helped me understand some of the challenges that I was experiencing at work, and gave me clarity about why I felt so triggered by my boss. I ended up finding a better role in the organization that allowed me to use the skills I am more passionate about, and I was able to establish a productive partnership with my new manager because I had more language to describe what I needed."

I work with individuals directly or via a company contract. Sessions can be in-person in Dallas, TX, or via virtual meetings.
