Career Counseling to nurture sustainable success
Whether you’re thinking of leaving a job, changing careers, or are just starting out, professional career counseling offers expert guidance to move you forward, personally and professionally.
Since our career counselors are therapists too, they can help you use professional experiences to foster your personal wellbeing: learning to improve communication, balance your job and relationship, set healthy boundaries, manage anxiety, stress and burnout, work through career-related trauma from a toxic workplace, overcome self-limiting core beliefs, and more.

Emotional Intelligence Coaching For Success in All Endeavors
Understanding the impact of emotional intelligence and investing in building EI skills leads to stronger relationships, increased wellbeing, and success in all endeavors.
Why? When you know how to manage your own feelings in healthy ways, you persevere through obstacles and make good career decisions. Knowing how to navigate the feelings of others is also key to positive workplace dynamics.
