Career coaching can address whatever you need in your work life planning. You may want to discover work that is nourishing for you and needed in the world. You may want support in establishing your own enterprise. Or you may want to be more successful in your current workplace.  I can help in whatever way would be most useful for growing your work life. I have helped many people in these ways over the years.

How does life/work discovery look?

I offer a structured program that can flex where needed. We explore your heartfelt values, your preferred strengths, your life/work priorities, your motivating interests. We expand your knowledge of occupations. We identify resources you have and those you may need.  We create movement around obstacles. Homework promotes your progress. With creativity and consistency, we discover new choices that express who you are and who you want to be.

Do you offer testing?

I have provided career testing to many clients over the years. Based on overall client response, I have narrowed down to the Strong Interest Inventory. The Strong has a long-standing and top-notch international reputation among career assessments. The version I prefer generates fifteen pages which suggest broad fields and specific occupations for you to consider. There are spin-offs online but the actual Strong can only be taken with a qualified provider.

What do your services cost?

Your total cost will depend on the process you choose.  So, until we speak I don’t have a way to offer a dependable figure. I enjoy offering my services to clients who want to work with me. So, if you are experiencing financial hardship, I will talk with you about a modified fee. If you have reasonable resources, you will still find my charges to be very fair. Payment is made only after each meeting occurs.

That depends upon what you choose as the appropriate service for your situation. We discuss options in our initial discussion.
