  • I offer convenient online career, life and retirement coaching to clients globally.

    I assist my clients to:

    • successfully navigate career transitions 
    • build the foundations for a resilient career path
    • discover and integrate personal, life affirming solutions to stress and burnout
    • map out meaningful possibilities for retirement

    I invite you to try Integrated Career Counseling - a combination of career and life coaching from an experiential and existential psychological perspective. An existential coaching perspective focuses on your life, on your unique experiences, your diverse talents and capacities.

    I am committed to supporting, guiding and encouraging you through this personalized coaching 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.

    I guide my clients in integrating and harmonizing their inner and public lives. By reflecting on personal values and aligning these values with their career aspirations and innate capacities, clients discover possibilities for themselves. This reinvigorates their ability to move forward with concrete actions to ensure that the work they create and devote themselves to, the collaborations they seek out and engage in, and the contributions they make to their specific fields or communities are meaningful, fulfilling and authentic representations of who they are.

  • The Increasing Desire for Fulfilling Work

    The Desire for Fulfilling Work

    11/11/2019

    As a career counselor, I have witnessed the increasing desire for fulfilling work amongst my clients. Fulfillment is at the top of their “want” list in career development, for those experiencing career transitions or for those who are navigating and stepping through burnout.

    The prioritizing of fulfillment as a personal criterion for work has emerged in conjunction with the pronounced shifts we are witnessing in the job market worldwide. These shifts include the increase in contractual employment, the emergence of the ‘gig’ economy, changes to the types of jobs that are available, increasing underemployment, and the reality of career transition(s) during one’s lifetime.

The Interview

  • Dr. Alfried Längle, Prof. Dr. med. Dr. Phil

    Dr. Längle and I discuss fulfillment, burnout and the components of good leadership, all from an existential analytic perspective. A common element in all three is what Dr. Längle describes as the necessary “…practice of basic existential connecting”: being engaged in the world around us, being fully present in all that we do and the capacity to feel deeply connected to ourselves and our feelings.
