Defining your Vision, Goals and Tasks
I believe part of having a successful 40-year career myself is sharing what I have learned with those just starting out —or making a career change when necessary. That’s why I work with both students and professionals in specific fields to define your vision and goals for the short, middle, and long term and to identify strategies and specific tasks that will lead to your success.
In my experience, honoring and acting on your deep creative vision while you address practical needs leads to a path of personal and professional fulfillment. I have taught and counseled at the BA, MA, and doctoral levels in the departments of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, education, counseling, nutrition, acupuncture, public health, and health education. I have received federal and state grants and my career has spanned clinical care delivery, policy development, non-profit program development, fundraising, for-profit start-up and consulting, and research and publishing in all types of venues. I am an Approved Clinical Supervisor by the Center for Credentialing and Education. I coach and support you to overcome obstacles and to find purpose and meaning through your work.
Among my successful advisees are students, allopathic and naturopathic physicians, bodyworkers and massage therapists, lawyers, psychotherapists, computer programmers, consultants and those working in the fields of rural health, international development, community advocacy, environmental health, ethnobotany, holistic business, and public health.
