Career Coaching

Navigating your career can feel like an overwhelming endeavor. Do you feel good about your work? What could fulfilling work look like? What makes a compelling resume or interview? How can you find jobs that fit your skills and interests? Does my job HAVE to be my passion?

All of these questions and more are invaluable to consider while pursuing a career that makes sense for you and your life. No need to go it alone; I can help light the way.

In addition to developing your personal career narrative, I help you review your application materials in order to be the best candidate you can be. I love helping clients troubleshoot their job search and develop strategies for finding and pursuing the job they want. And no matter your comfort level with interviews, I can help you feel more calm and confident in front of hiring managers.

I have years of experience as a hiring manager, clinical supervisor for interns and professionals, and have been working in the career development industry since 2018. All of these experiences inform the work that I do with you today. I know what qualities hiring managers are looking for–so how about we see what I can do for you?

I was keen on getting direction on how to present my story and to gain experience that would be relevant to my new life arena.  Catherine Archer was a tremendous part of my vocational and career formation.  She worked with me on building basic career blocks to encouraging me to embrace my story and be courageous about next steps.  She accompanied me with grace, generosity, and much positive energy.  Thank you, Catherine.

“I wanted to say thank you for your help along the entire application process. Our meetings helped me understand how to build a proper CV and write effective cover letters. The time you spent with me helped to build my confidence which showed during my interview.”

“I really truly could not have gotten to this point without you, Catherine. Your calm demeanor and empathy was a great support and I also appreciated the tough love when I needed it. The exercises and resources you provided helped me figure out what matters to me most and to focus on jobs that aligned with my values and priorities. I’m singing your praises to everyone I talk to. I’m really grateful.”
