If you're sick of feeling stressed out at your job, always feeling that internal pressure and worry, while feeling disconnected from your work, I can help you figure out whether you can fall back in love with your career, or if it's time to make a new plan.
Have you ever looked around at your job and wondered, "How did I end up here?" You're not alone. I spent years of my career concerned with doing the "right thing," checking off the boxes of a "good life," and never feeling any satisfaction. I was playing by the rules, but I never felt satisfied. I was all consumed with being more, doing more, and being "better," to the point that I wound up more anxious and unfulfilled than ever.
Sometimes we need to be brave enough to outgrow the life we've built.
I've been that strung-out-on-accolades-and-praise overachiever. The one who never celebrates her victories and just keeps on to the next goal, the one just out of reach, the one that will make it all better and give me the fulfillment I lacked. But guess what? It never did.
Maybe you can relate: I am a reformed "good girl," a.k.a. overachieving people pleaser, always on the lookout for another achievement "high" or accolade (though I would have never admitted to it!). I did things "right": said the right things, played by the rules, and got what I wanted - or at least what I thought I wanted. And it left me feeling empty, overworked, and burned out. My accomplishments never felt like enough, and my anxious thoughts were right under the surface when I slowed down (most people never even knew!).
Now I work with clients to help them make these same shifts and fall back in love with their careers and their lives.
If you're sick of working long hours, taking on more and more work from your colleagues, struggling to say no, or you're just fed up with doing work that doesn't feel good anymore, you're in the right place. I can help you love the career you're in -- or create a plan for leaving it for something better.
