  • College Essays
    • We will work together to find your authentic voice and motivation for attending college. We will brainstorm the content together and work on crafting an essay that makes you feel proud and appreciate how far you’ve come.
  • Choosing a Major
    • If you are a traditional-aged potential college student, you may wonder, “Where is the transition from high school to college?” Until now, you have been given structure and a schedule. Now, without warning, people ask you what you want to do with your life. Let me help you create a plan and a strategy. You can also set up a complimentary 15-minute phone call where I can give you an overview of what to expect.
  • Unsure of your career path?
    • I help clients gain clarity by asking questions that they hadn’t considered before. As we talk, I learn about you, your interests, your motivators, and what is important to you at this stage in your life. Then, we develop a plan to get you to your next step.
  • Stuck in a job that you don’t like?
    • Let’s talk! In our sessions, it IS all about you! Let’s discuss how you landed where you are now, what you like/don’t like, your ideal outcome, and let’s discover some hidden dreams that may be hiding just below the surface. Let’s figure out how you can have a life you love!

Disclaimer: some assembly may be required.

  • Know what you like but don’t know what it’s called?
    • We will discuss what you are hoping for, what is missing in your job now, and how to incorporate more of what you love into your daily life.
  • Are your resumes going to the great resume abyss?
    • I don’t have scientific evidence, but I think once this abyss is finally discovered and excavated, we will find all your countless resumes and all those missing socks that disappear in the dryer. Until that day comes, let’s focus on crafting your resume.
    • We will go line by line, bullet point by point, to ensure you are showcasing your skills, accomplishments, and overall awesomeness but also focusing on the type of work that you enjoy. Wouldn’t it be great to love your next job?!
  • Landing interviews but not getting the job?
    • My guess is that 1. either the jobs aren’t a good fit or 2. you may be like most job seekers and not be giving your potential employers a good sense of who you are and what you have to offer. Most people feel awkward talking about themselves, especially when so much is on the line.
    • I help you figure out which stories to tell and how to tell them in an authentic, comfortable and genuine way that shows who you are (awesome!) and what you have to offer. We all overlook our talents and think that if something is easy for us, it’s easy for everyone. That is not the case. I listen to your story, take notes and then tell your story back to you when I have enough information for an interview answer using the STAR Interview Method. I help you see what you have to offer, so you can go into the interview with a renewed sense of purpose and clarity.
  • Quarter-Life Crisis
    • The struggle is real! You talk; I listen. I ask questions to help you gain a new sense of clarity and perspective.
      • What is missing?
      • What is your ideal outcome?
      • How can we get from point A to point B?
