I’m Dr. Janet Scarborough Civitelli. As a consulting psychologist who specializes in career and leadership development, I help clients become as successful and satisfied as possible with their work and personal lives. I use a holistic approach with the goal of integrating your best self into making a living in a way that is aligned with your core values.
My educational background includes a B.A. in Economics from UCLA, an M.Ed. in Counselor Education from the University of Texas at Austin, and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. My dissertation research found that changeable aspects of personality are predictive of overall life satisfaction.
One of my most fun experiences was writing and publishing a book where I interviewed 12 career experts about the process of choosing a career: “Help Me Find A Career: Strategies To Choose Work You Will Love.”
My first career was in the tech industry and I continue to be strongly interested in using technology for making a positive difference. In my psychology career, I have worked at universities, community mental health agencies, hospitals, corporations, start-ups, and private consulting with individuals.
From 1999 to 2008, I founded and ran Bridgeway Career Development, a Seattle area career and leadership coaching firm. From 2009 to 2011, I managed the career counseling team at University Career Services (UCS), University of Houston. UCS assists 38,000 students and 200,000+ alumni with all aspects of career development.
My current company is VocationVillage.com, a consulting, coaching, and career counseling company. I help clients to choose, change, or advance their careers. I particularly enjoy working with diverse clients who share my commitment to any of these areas…
- Socially Responsible Tech
- The Environment
- The Arts
- Social Justice
- Inclusive Religion / Spirituality
- Progressive Entrepreneurship
I am certified as a Master Career Counselor by the National Career Development Association. I am also certified as a Master Personal and Executive Coach through the College of Executive Coaching, the leader in coach training for professionals with graduate degrees.
