Career Coach

As a career counselor in Washington D.C. that has helped thousands of clients, I know how to keep you focused and motivated toward your goals. Having undergone significant life and career transitions successfully, I can help you chart the course for your success.


I’ve spent 20 years of my life as a psychotherapist and a career coach. My understanding of psychology helps clients uncover the emotional obstacles holding them back, and interests that can open the door to a fulfilling career.

I rose to the top of the advertising industry and transitioned to the non-profit sector during my 23-year career. My experience gives me a personal understanding of the business landscape and career transitions.

Marketing Expert

As a marketing expert, I know how to help you position yourself and “sell” your skills and experience to land the job you want.

Job Search Coaching

Recruiters are almost always paid by an organization to find good candidates to fit a specific position, so unless you have met all of the requirements a recruiter is not going to waste time working with you. Through creative, targeted networking I will guide you as to exactly how to successfully undertake this process.

Life Coaching

Demonstrated ability to succeed in the real world is a powerful signal that a life coach hasn’t just learned a set of “one-size-fits-all” techniques (which is what most coaching programs teach), but can understand how to apply them successfully to the real world.

Do You Need a Career Coach?

Ask Yourself These Questions:

  • Am I unhappy with my current job?
  • Was I recently laid off?
  • Am I considering a career change?
  • Am I considering going back to school?
  • Am I unsure about my career path or what I want to do in life?
  • Do I lack excitement or motivation relating to my career?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, I can help you find the direction you need to move forward with confidence. If you’re in Washing DC or the surrounding areas, such as Baltimore MD, Arlington VA, and Alexandria VA contact me to get started.
