    I assist my clients to:

    I am committed to supporting, guiding and encouraging you through this personalized process by helping you integrate and leverage your experiences, your evolving skills and what you value deeply to create customized and lasting solutions.

    My aim is to help you continue to move forward in your life with greater awareness, insight and perspective. The results of our work will enable you to combine what is possible with personally meaningful decisions and actions.

    To book an initial 25 minute conversation please contact me at I welcome any questions you may have and I look forward to speaking with you.

    Integrative career counseling focuses on understanding a client’s unique experiences, specific contexts and personal resources, and working collaboratively with them to create and map out meaningful and relevant steps forward.
