I have been a professional career counselor for 20 years and an educator for 25+ years. I provide face-to-face sessions in the Washington, DC metro area and Northern Virginia, by phone, and virtually via Skype and Zoom.

I believe in people’s potential to:

  • Align work with values and skills
  • Communicate with integrity
  • Be inspiring to others
  • Lead productive and satisfying lives

When you get the most out of your career, you’ll be able to live your best life. 

The advice you’ll find here is based on my nearly 20 years working with regular people who, for whatever reason, struggled at work or in their careers. I’ve been in your shoes. I was laid off. I’ve been in unhealthy work environments. I’ve struggled finding the right career fit for my personality. I’m convinced that Emotional Intelligence drives our decisions, our relationships, and our successes.
