Career Counseling Washington DC

As an experienced career coach, a leader of business and non-profit organizations, and  a psychotherapist,  I offer a unique benefit of helping solve career issues. Lots of people feel anxious about their career choices.  

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Jim was recommended to me by a mutual friend because I was at a major crossroads in my life and needed compassionate, insightful yet impartial readings of my options. I was especially impressed with Jim's business credentials as well as his counseling background. I continue to consult with Jim and highly recommend him to anyone in need of business counseling.

Gail Friedman

I have known Jim for ten years. We all have career stuff, whether it's self-inflicted or termination beyond one's control. I've experienced both. Jim can help you through whatever your circumstances may be. He creates a connection where it's safe to share what is really going on. If you need a new job immediately or if you are contemplating a career change going forward, I'd call Jim.

Doug Witt

I decided to meet with Jim when I was contemplating making a big career change. I found my meetings with him to be supportive, helpful and constructive. Throughout the process he challenged me and helped me see what I could not see before. I was lost and scared in my previous job and Jim helped me by walking me through the process of change...

Michael Lilintahl

As one can expect, trying to make a career transition is a highly emotional and somewhat stressful experience as it requires a certain level of honesty, self-reflection and hard work. I reached out to a number of career coaches in the DC area when I began to contemplate a change but no one I spoke with had the quite the same intelligent, calm demeanor as Jim. Jim supported my growth, both professionally and personally, by providing me with thoughtful direction, insight, and feedback...

Grace Robinson

I chose to work with Jim after speaking with several other coaches. I was very impressed with his credentials, particularly his repeated success in several different career fields, and I found him very easy to talk with. Jim helped me discover what would be a fulfilling career path for me, gave me the confidence to pursue my passion, and provided invaluable guidance on the best way to do that. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Brian Smith

I have known Jim professionally for almost 15 years. His intelligence, experience, and background are all exceptional, which has led me to send numerous patients of mine to him when they are in need of career guidance (I am a Jungian psychoanalyst). The feedback I've gotten from them has been uniformly positive - he's made a real difference in their lives.

    Life Coaching

I offer the unique benefit of helping solve career issues from four different perspectives: As a coach I know the techniques to keep you focused and motivated. As a leader of business and non-profit organizations I can provide you with a wealth of insights on career advancement.


As a marketing expert I can teach you how to position and "sell" yourself. And as a psychotherapist, I can help you uncover obstacles and/or interests that are much more likely to surface through insightful questioning and dialogue than in static personality or career testing. With these multiple, objective perspectives we will be able to develop creative, actionable, and effective solutions.

Jim helped me through a critical time in my business. My market research business had been deeply affected by technology and changes in corporate culture. Do I close the doors and move on? If not what are my options? Is it time for a change? In addition to Jim’s counseling background, he’s a Harvard MBA with years of experience at the highest levels of the advertising industry so he really understood my issues.

Asking Jim Weinstein to help me navigate my career path was the best decision I could make in my life.

Two years later, and I’m deeply committed in that process...

Jim's committed to helping you achieve your goals with no-nonsense guidance and a compassionate style. Working with him puts you on the fast track to meeting and exceeding your goals.

Margot Lester

As an executive search/headhunter I have been lucky enough to partner with Jim on a number of occasions. I have referred several local and remote (Skype, etc.) mid-level to executive-level candidates to him who have reported back to me with rave reviews. Jim has also consulted with me whenever my executive search expertise has been a helpful element to his full-service thoughtful career advice he provides his clients. 100% class act and worth the investment.

Andrew Zalman

I received a promotion and pay raise after working with Jim to help me move forward in my career! Jim was a great help when it came to reaching my career goals. Together, we revamped my resumé and cover letter and put new interviewing skills to practice...
