I live in Austin and I specialize in career assessment services. I am often asked for suggestions about Austin career counselors and coaches who have different areas of focus than I do. Every time I hear of someone based in Austin who offers career counseling or coaching, I add them to this list. Inclusion here is not a recommendation because I don’t know everyone here. Please do research to choose the right help for your needs.
