After working with Julia, I quit a job that I had long been unhappy with and came away with much more clarity about my next professional steps.

What would it be like to have a job that felt pretty okay most of the time?

I work with smart, motivated people who are unhappy with their current employment situation and are ready for change.

If you’re here, I’m guessing you’re feeling a bit lost and could use some direction.

Maybe you’d like to stop crying at your desk and dreading Sunday nights, or maybe you’d just like a bit more of a sense of purpose. Maybe your current direction has hit a dead end and you don’t know what to try next.

Whether you’re in full-on existential freakout mode or just at a career crossroads, I’ve probably helped someone in your situation (and yes, I’ve been there myself).

I’d love to help you stop spinning in circles and give you the tools to make choices with clarity and confidence.


You’re ready to get started - if you only knew how.

“Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life!”

“You're not supposed to love your job, that's why it's called work."

While both ends of the spectrum contain some truth, neither of them tell the full story (or are particularly helpful on their own).

I've always thought a good job is more like a good relationship. It's not always perfect and it's going to take some effort to keep it running smoothly, but at the end of the day it's work you're happy to put in.

Finding that sweet spot takes time and effort, and it can get frustrating if you're not sure how to effectively leverage either.


If you could think your way to your ideal career, you would have done it already.

It makes sense that you aren’t sure where to start. When did someone sit you down and tell you how to find work you enjoyed? How to explore your options in a low-risk, low-investment way?

If you’re like most people, the answer is “never.” Or maybe you got a few tips here and there, but you aren’t sure how to put them together.

That’s where I come in: to help you make sense of your past experiences, explore some promising directions, and create a strategy to move you closer to that “pretty okay” (or better!) career.

I wanted to feel less stuck and more in control of my career situation. You helped me get out of my own way and from there I was able to find an opportunity that I’m excited about.

Working With Me

We’ll start out with a free career strategy call. This gives us a chance to discuss your situation, answer your questions, and get a sense of whether we’d be a good fit.

You can read more about the call and schedule it here.

This career coaching package consists of four phone sessions that take place over two months. Phone sessions allow for maximum comfort, flexibility and convenience - you’ll get a taste during your initial strategy call if you haven’t worked this way before.

During our first session, we’ll work together to identify the essential career elements you need to thrive. This session alone is hugely helpful; when you know what to ask for, sometimes you can even get it in your current job!

In the remaining sessions, I’ll guide you through the process of exploring your options and developing a strategy for moving forward. Even after your package is over, you’ll have the tools you need to keep making progress on your own.

In addition to your four coaching sessions, your package includes:

  • Time-tested exercises, worksheets, and personalized assignments to keep you on track.

  • Access to helpful supplemental materials in my Client Resource Library.

  • E-mail support between sessions.


Total investment: $700

(2-pay option available)


Get your brain back!

When I ask potential clients to imagine what it would be like to have clarity about their next steps, they say things like:

  • It would be such a relief. I'd feel so much lighter.

  • My brain would stop constantly spinning and I could focus on other things in my life.

  • It would be easier to just relax and let go at the end of the day.

  • I'd be able to enjoy my relationships more (and my friends and family would appreciate it too!)

  • I'd be nicer and more patient, rather than snapping at people out of stress.

  • I'd feel a lot more optimistic and energized.

What would your life look like if you had more energy, optimism, and mental bandwidth? What awesomeness might you create with all the freed-up resources currently focused on fixing your career? I can’t wait to help you find out.

What time is better than now?

The fact that you’ve even read this far says that you’re contemplating a change. Maybe you have been for a while. How much longer are you willing to wait?  No judgment if it’s not the right time for you - but how will you know the right time when it comes?

I was struggling with an overwhelming feeling of being stuck, but I also had a lot of fear about making the leap to something new. Julia was insightful and patient in helping me identify my natural strengths, next steps, and more. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with her!
