If you are someone contemplating a job or career change, we have over a decade of expertise to help you meet your challenges.

Creative — describes the approach we use to help clients move forward by taking a fresh look at the subject matter which is you, the client. Sometimes, this process involves breaking open those comfortable boxes in which we come to view ourselves and our professional lives. We work with clients to formulate a step-by-step plan 1) in order to make our services financially reasonable and 2) to put the client in charge of their change process.

Change — is the basic process that most often brings individuals to use our services. Some people may have only a vague sense that a job or career change is needed while others arrive crystal clear about their next career objective. Rather than providing answers, we work with techniques whereby the client can test out the personal validity of what they discover about themselves through self-reflection, assessments, and exploratory exercises.

Careers — are the focus of the services we provide, but we do so in the broader context of the total person. Values and interests change as individuals develop and mature and must be considered to find genuine satisfaction. We use a coaching approach that pays attention to the full range of the client's concerns including life-work balance.
