I invite you to try Integrated Career Counseling - a combination of career and life coaching from an experiential and existential psychological perspective. This is a coaching perspective that focuses on your life and your unique experiences. I am committed to supporting, guiding and encouraging you through this personalized coaching process by drawing on your experiences and what you value deeply. My aim is to help you move forward with greater awareness, reflective practice, possibility and concrete actions that are meaningful and authentic representations of who you are.

I often meet with clients who are experiencing a lack of confidence, energy, focus and motivation during periods of: career transition, when they are experiencing burnout, when they desire more meaningful work or when they are at the initial stages of career development.
