What is a Career Coach?

A career coach can help you in different ways.  Maybe you know what you want to do next, but can’t figure out how to get there.  Or maybe you are at a turning point in your life and career, and really don’t know what you want to do next.  I can help you either way.

Every career coach has a different style of working, so we need to be a good match for each other.  I have an approach and process that I have developed over time that works well.  I love being a coach because it can make a real difference for the people I work with.

  • What is blocking your efforts to define your career and find a new job?
  • Are you unfocused or confused?
  • Are you out of balance in making something happen for your job search?


I have been a Certified Professional Career Coach (CPCC) since 2004.  There are only a few of us in the country with this particular certification.  My expertise is in career-related issues, and I do not venture into other fields such as life coaching or family counseling.

My Coaching Process

I try to be neutral and non-judgmental in our conversation.  I don’t have an agenda other than I want you to be happy with your work.  I don’t know what you should next, but I can help you find that out for yourself.

I am very practical, and always make sure that you have some good take-aways from our conversation.  This will include things to think about for internal reflection, and things to do outside of yourself to explore opportunities.

Then I am a good partner for focused and productive conversation. Coaching can be done effectively both in-person or by phone.

  • Brainstorming ideas.
  • Developing both short-term and long-term strategies.
  • Putting together realistic action plans.
  • Providing accountability for you to go through your own process.
