Personal and Career Coaching

Successful integration of individual, family, career and lifestyle goals is essential to personal satisfaction. I work with clients to establish healthy habits, relationships and work commitments; help overcome challenges and achieve a balanced and fulfilling life. We work together to find, develop and maintain careers and positions that are a strong match with interests, personality and abilities; relationships that are satisfying; and work or leisure activities that are challenging and rewarding. At times, we may include meetings with family members or significant others, especially in with dual-career couples, to balance careers with the challenges of committed relationships, marriage and family life. Coaching is also an important resource for working through marital conflict, family crisis or divorce — as well as strengthening family relationships.

With over twenty-five years of coaching experience, I bring a deep understanding and a variety of professional resources to help clients find their way to happier personal and professional lives. Some of the resources I use include standardized personal and career tests such as the Strong Interest Inventory, Career Leader, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, FIRO-B, and Sixteen Personality Inventory.

We build skills, set goals, and develop accountability for achieving goals that may include:

  • Career Assessment and Exploration
  • Career and Life Strategizing
  • Job Search
  • Enhancing Executive Functions and Abilities
  • Visionary Planning
  • Planning And Organization
  • Project Management
  • Assertiveness
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Stress Management
  • Time Management
  • Networking and Relationship Building
  • Avocational and Leisure Enrichment
  • Interviewing
  • Communications
  • Balancing Work with Personal Challenges

I meet with clients in a variety of ways: face-to-face if they are in the greater Boston area; and electronically by telephone, Skype and email for those across the US and around the world.

Please contact me if you would like to talk about how I might be helpful in creating a happier, more successful work and personal life.
