Career Coaching

What is Career Coaching?

The best are coached. This is true in virtually every profession, no matter the level or position. Career coaching is a personalized, structured practice that helps individuals make the most of their professional journeys. An experienced practitioner like me provides qualified guidance and support to help clients remove roadblocks, make beneficial choices, and accomplish their career missions. Career coaching is valuable at all stages of the employment life cycle. 

Whether you're new to the workforce or a seasoned executive, it's common to feel uncertain at times about your career path. I can help you decide what's next by identifying your strengths, weaknesses, interests, and values. Leaving your current role may not be the answer. Through introspective assessments and in-depth discussions, you'll gain options and a clearer understanding of what you want in your career – and life.

If you're here, work likely consumes the majority of your time. You deserve to succeed and enjoy it as much as possible. They key is to uncover and understand anything keeping you from ultimate career fulfillment. I look forward to sharing all I know about how to make that happen!

How Career Coaching Differs from Counseling & Therapy

Career coaching differs from traditional counseling or therapy in its primary focus and approach. Career coaching is future-oriented and concentrates on professional development, goal setting, and skills enhancement. It aims to assist individuals in advancing their careers, making better job decisions, and achieving their professional aspirations. 

Conversely, traditional counseling or therapy addresses emotional, psychological, and mental health concerns. It delves into the past to understand and resolve issues such as anxiety, depression or trauma, often through therapeutic interventions and analysis. While both offer valuable support, career coaching is proactive and practical, geared toward helping individuals succeed in their professional lives, rather than addressing psychological or emotional challenges.

My holistic brand of career coaching blends the best aspects of traditional coaching and traditional counseling. Using therapeutic coaching, I offer a hybrid model for professional well-being that combines elements of traditional therapy with coaching. This method recognizes that individuals may have emotional or psychological factors impacting their ability to achieve optimal career or personal outcomes. Clients who are especially invested in personal and professional development may have both a coach and counselor. I'm a firm believer in this pursuit.
