As a coach / consultant I focus primarily on working with you to identify possibilities and solutions that you may not have previously considered.
My clients often report they find themselves more competent, successful, and actively creative in their lives. Challenges that seemed unsolvable became manageable. Positive change is the result.
Career / Academic Services
Career dilemmas can be complicated, challenging, and rewarding aspects of adult development. Receiving coaching from an experienced career counselor can be an invaluable use of resources with a return on investment that can last a lifetime.
One aspect of my training that sets me apart from many other career coaches is the combination of PhD level career counseling training and traditional psychotherapy training. This combination along with experience in psychoeductional testing and coaching allows me to guide people more efficiently into additional treatment areas if needed. In addition, I have worked at five different universities in a variety of capacities and have developed a depth and breadth of perspective that my clients find valuable.
Finally, I have substantial experience working with academic and other professionals struggling with research and writing projects (e.g. dissertation completion, tenure pursuit, etc.). I regularly receive referrals from Duke’s Counseling and Psychological Services and UNC’s Counseling and Wellness Services for clients with these concerns.

Treating our bodies well is something to which many of us aspire. Research suggests that making lifestyle changes in the way we eat, move, and work is not simply a matter of will power and often requires a more nuanced approach. Working with a coach can help you identify potential missing ingredients in your approach to change.

High functioning work groups are associated with greater efficiency, productivity, and job satisfaction. One important quality of high functioning teams is a valuing of diversity. Diverse perspectives, temperaments, work styles, and backgrounds should be considered assets to any work group. I can work with you to maximize and enhance your work group’s performance.
