Here are some things to know about me:
~ I help clients to choose, change, or advance their careers.
~ My extensive background as a workplace consulting psychologist means I understand the environments in which clients are trying to succeed. From me you will get reality-based help, not just theorizing.
~ I am qualified to administer and interpret a wide variety of career assessments to clarify your core strengths, interests, personality, and values.
~ My business has been 100% virtual (Zoom, telephone, and email) since 2011. I’m an advocate for remote employment. I also support workers who prefer going to an office full-time or following a hybrid work schedule. I believe in choices.
~ I am certified as a Master Personal and Executive Coach through the College of Executive Coaching, the leader in coach training for professionals with graduate degrees.
~ Before I became a psychologist, my first career was in tech in software development, marketing, project management, and recruiting. Every day, I still use the skills I developed in the tech industry. Many of my clients work in tech today.
~ I run two other businesses: (1) A communications business where I help business clients market their products and services through content strategy, copywriting, and content creation, and (2) A therapy practice where I am licensed for telepsychology in 28 states (As of January, 2022, I am not currently accepting new therapy clients because my therapy practice is full.)
~ I moved eight times and kept starting my coaching business over in new places before I finally made my business location-independent. Because of these experiences, I enjoy helping people who moved to a new area because of family or other circumstances.
~ I’ve lived in California, Wisconsin, Alabama, Texas, Washington, Oregon, and Colorado.
~ I wrote and published a book featuring 15 career experts: Choosing Your Career: Proven Strategies for a Satisfying Life.
~ I’ve worked in universities, community mental health agencies, hospitals, corporations, start-ups, and private consultation with individuals.
~ From 1999 to 2008, I founded and ran Bridgeway Career Development, a Seattle area career and leadership coaching firm. I gave the firm to a colleague.
~ 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 educational background includes a B.A. in Economics from UCLA 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.
