Career Counseling: Your Career Strategist

Baffled by your current career situation? Are you unclear about your next step?

Career Counseling gives you the insight, confidence, and strategy to get a new job, or fall in love with the one you have.

Many years ago, I was in a job where I felt isolated and that I just didn’t fit in. I rarely received feedback, and when I did, it was criticism.  I hated coming to work. Most days I felt unappreciated, and I had no way to really demonstrate my strengths and passions, and do things where I excelled.  I was disenchanted and trapped. What did I do?

I got out. For me the only direction was out. I found my next job and it was so much better. I felt that I could be me and that I was contributing to something bigger.

If this sounds like you, call me or send me an email. I want to hear from you. I’m going to ask you tons of questions, so be prepared! I desire for you to love your work–whatever that is.

“Cindy has the uncanny ability to walk you through a discovery process to led you to your true self.  When I was referred to Cindy, I felt lost and had no idea what my next career step should be.  I had been through a several job and career changes over the last 6 years, none of them bringing me fulfillment.  I knew deep in my heart I had the capability to do whatever I set my mind to, but I was too confused and stressed to figure out what that was.  Cindy took my through a series of reflection exercises that immediately gave me hope.  She continued walking me through discovery sessions which uncovered my true passions and well as what I was really good at.  After 3 months of sessions, I had a path and knew what I wanted to do with my career.  This has brought an unbelievable turn in my life and excitement to each day. ”   –Susan Thesing
