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.
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
I draw on my experience from both sides of the table, having worked in the government-funded Nova Scotia Works employment centres and as a corporate recruiter. 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.
I’m so passionate about this work! I love the depth of clarity and the impactful exploring that come out of narrative coaching. Together as client and coach we are generating ideas and motivating action through heartfelt listening and exploration.
Here is how I can help:
one on one sessions & group coaching
I am an empathetic listener and a dream booster, and I'm in your corner when you need me. Working with a coach provides new perspectives, honest reflection and uncovers fresh possibilities. I'm offering both individual and group coaching which gives you flexibility, choice and affordability.
Customized coaching package pricing ranges from $250 to $1200.
New Group Coaching sessions beginning in Spring 2018!
workshops & events
From revealing Employer Panels like "Why I Hire Millennials" to productive group sessions about debunking the 'entitled, lazy and disloyal' myths that follow our generation, these workshops can give you the boost you need to learn, grow and change your path in small shifts or epic leaps.
Starting at $20 per workshop.
corporate & non profit training
Incorporating career development into the workplace is proven to help with employee retention, engagement, training and job satisfaction. I am an award-winning public speaker and have years of experience in group facilitation. From a boardgame self-discovery experience to team building and keynotes, these activities are on the cutting-edge of the field, lively and inclusive.
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.
Starting at $125 per consultation.
