certified narrative holistic career practitioner
About me & you
I'm a Narrative Career Coach, which means that you share your stories and experiences with me and through that very personal lens we pull out your strengths and desires. You get clear about what you want, and the possibilities that we come up with are completely unique to you because they come from you.
Is this you? I can hear you!!!
#Settle #EntryLevel #FML
"I’m done school and I need a decent job, any job. I feel like I have to settle and start at the bottom no matter what. How do I even break into my field if I can’t pay my rent without this 'insert job-you-hate-here' gig? Why can't I go after what I want right now? "
"Ugh...is this going to be the rest of my life? I’m lucky to have a steady gig, and benefits, and bla bla bla, but I have no purpose. I can’t just quit to “find my bliss” but I really want meaningful work. I feel stuck and overwhelmed and lazy. How do I get the motivation and strategy I need to make a change?"
#ACK #DreamJob #NotReady
"I’m freaking out! My dream job just got posted and all I have is an ok-enough resume from 3 years ago, a sad LinkedIn and no idea how to interview for this. But I KNOW I can do it! I was made for this job! How do I quickly get ready for this epic opportunity without using terrible phrases like ‘proven interpersonal skills’ and losing my mind?"
Traditional career coaching focuses on fitting you into the job market using assessments that put you in boxes. You are not a colour, series of letters or specific set of strengths. You are a whole person, and your career touches your whole life. That's why my clients find my holistic approach refreshing, unique and effective.
Inspiring, Affordable & Effective
Having worked in non-profit career centres and as a corporate recruiter, I draw on my experience from both sides of the table. My insights from the career development field, from the employer’s perspective and from my clients provide a comprehensive view of the world of work.
Together as client and coach we are generating ideas and motivating action through heartfelt listening and exploration. You'll love the depth of clarity and the impactful exploring that come out of narrative coaching.

Please reach out to me for details and pricing.
disability disclosure & accommodation
Disclosure at work or during a job search process is challenging at best and harrowing at times. The choices of "if, when and how" are intimate and can make us feel a range of emotions, from vulnerable to angry and back again. I have coached clients through these decisions. I approach this work with respect, dignity and an experienced, realistic perspective of how far we've come and how much stigma is still out there.
This service is offered on a compassionate fee, and starts at $125 per consultation.
