At the root of transition is “transit.” This passage from one place to another can feel Disorienting & Unsettling, particularly when a career or job change is involved. Your work identity is a vital part of your being and center of gravity. An important first step is considering what you really WANT to do at work and equally important - what you DONT. If you're new to the workforce, consider how to apply skills acquired in life & in school in a first job. Bottom line, you need to KNOW and feel at ease Telling Your Story, showcasing your brand on your resume, crafting compelling cover letters, & that Interview! I'm here to help.

I hear every day how stressful life is. You may feel like there is no time to focus on your self-care. So many people are feeling worried, sad. and have too many thoughts flowing through their minds. Many people are feeling that life stressors, life transitions, relationships, their job, or extended family are creating high amounts of stress in their life. These things can make it difficult to focus, sleep, or find happiness in their life. Life is so busy and the daily news only increases everyone's stress level. On some days you may have energy and on others, you may just muddle through. I know it is frustrating and tiring

Our connections to one another and the communities we work and play in are foundational to our health and well-being. It is through relationship that we learn about ourselves and how best to be in relationship with others. At times, stress can threaten to overwhelm, priorities can become unclear and uncertainties can mount. We all benefit from a consistent and trusting relationship in which to identify our feelings, thoughts and behaviors, to be supported in our efforts to determine and utilize our own strengths and resources, to build our coping strategies, and begin to create the change we choose to work on in any stage of life
