Bio of Janet Scarborough Civitelli, Psychologist / Career Coach / Author

I help clients to 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.

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.
Janet Scarborough CivitelliIn 2013, I interviewed 12 career experts about the process of choosing a career. I self-published the interviews in a digital book available on Amazon: “Help Me Find a Career: Strategies to Choose Work You Will Love.”

Before studying psychology, my first career was in the tech industry in software development, marketing, and project management. As a career coach, I continue to work with clients in the tech field and I am strongly interested in using technology for making a positive difference. Over the course of my career, I have worked at universities, community mental health agencies, hospitals, corporations, start-ups, and in private consultation 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.
