What are you here to do?
I’m Julia Bushue, and I’m here to help smart, motivated people get clarity about their ideal career path.
For other people, it’s just a job. For you, it’s important to feel like you belong when it comes to work – and it’s outright painful when your job isn’t a good fit.
I know that feeling, because I’ve been there.
I used to install fine art for museums. Cool job, right? But it just wasn’t quite right for me. I found myself feeling restless for a career where I could use my creativity and empathy.
Unfortunately, I had no idea what that would look like. I spent a lot of time taking personality assessments, daydreaming, and waiting for lighting bolts of inspiration to strike. (Sound familiar?)
It took me a while to consider coaching as a career. As it turned out, it was a perfect fit for my fascination with self-exploration and love of good conversation. Now, I get to help people figure out what they want to do with their lives. And in the past few years, I’ve helped dozens of people do just that.
Feeling Stuck? I’d Love to Help.
I’ve created a few options for support designed to take you from feeling frustrated and paralyzed to clear and confident. By the time you’re done working with me, you’ll know what you want and what you’re good at. You’ll learn to trust your own judgment and plan your next steps.
I’m familiar with the challenges that accompany transition because I’ve been there myself. I’ve worked through many of the fears, doubts, and identity meltdowns that you might be experiencing.
Are You My People?
We’ll probably be a great fit if this sounds like you:
- You care deeply about the world and your place in it.
- You’re practical, but a bit of a dreamer.
- You’re dedicated to your emotional, mental, physical, and financial well-being.
- You’re open-minded, willing to try new things, and eager to learn and grow.
- You have a sense of humor and don’t take yourself too seriously.
- You’re invested in your progress and take initiative.
If you’re like many of the people I work with, I’m guessing you tend to be hard on yourself and get stuck in your own head easily. You may be a recovering perfectionist (Hi! Me too!) and worried that you’re not fulfilling your true potential.
I’m not a perfect fit for everyone, and I’m okay with that!
You might want to look for support elsewhere if:
- You just want the “one right answer” of what to do with your life.
- You want to start your own business. That’s awesome, but it’s not my area of expertise.
- You’re looking for someone to help you prep your job search materials.
I’m a certified Martha Beck life coach and clinical hypnotist. That means that I’ve gone through 3+ years of training to help you get where you want to go. My love of learning means that I’m always picking up new tools and techniques to share with you! Seriously, you should see my bookshelf.
How I Work With Clients
I prefer not to hang on to clients indefinitely. Instead, I’ll give you the tools and momentum you need to make significant progress over a relatively short period of time. My initial program term is 1-2 months, after which you can schedule follow-up sessions as needed.
I primarily meet with clients over the phone, which offers convenience and confidentiality. We don’t have to live in the same city or even the same time zone to work together! You’ll also get recordings of our sessions for future reference.
I also offer ongoing e-mail support in between our sessions. You’ll cover a lot of ground and learn a lot of tools as you go, and I don’t want you to get stuck or discouraged. I’ll be there to answer all your questions as they come up.

I’ll share everything you need to know about my programs to decide what kind of support is right for you. If you’ve read this far, I’m betting we’ll be a great fit. 🙂
