We’re Experts In:

Career Counseling 

Clients tell us that we provide a calming presence as we listen carefully, give them hope and outline an effective path forward. 

Individuals seek our services for several reasons: to identify ways to make their current jobs more satisfying, embark on a new career path, or explore further education or training.

We coach clients to clearly communicate what they have to offer verbally (strategic conversations and job interviews), virtually (LinkedIn) and in writing (cover letters and emails). 

As a Maine-centric company, our team is well established in the state and we often provide introductions to relevant business leaders and community contacts to further clients’ job searches.

Outcomes You Can Expect:

Our holistic approach incorporates focused questions that reveal the heart of the issue combined with strategic actions that support our clients to:

  • Clarify work needs, priorities and individual competencies and identify where those align with options in the marketplace.

  • Identify and shift attitudes, behaviors and patterns that limit their work satisfaction and success

  • Identify work and education opportunities and requirements that will facilitate career goals and ambitions

  • Implement current and effective ways to secure work through strategic conversations and community resources

  • Create professional, work-related documents: engaging resumés and cover letters, and the latest information on creating a LinkedIn profile that enhances a job search

  • Build self-esteem and articulate accomplishments as well as negotiate an employment offer or promotion.

Our Fees:

$150-$200 per hour session. Clients typically schedule from 1-6 sessions.

“I was referred to Barbara two years ago as I was in the process of a career transition. Looking back, working with Barbara was hands down the single best step I took. I believe Barbara’s greatest talent is her ability to know how to best relate to the individual, understanding what approach will be most helpful for them to discover what they truly want and then helping them design a plan of action to get the results they desire. “
