Acing Academia

My approach to coaching for the academic market is focused on helping you negotiate the process with a sense of efficacy and agency. It is easy to become distracted by the steps, overwhelmed by the whole or ricochet between these at intervals, whether you are an entering professional or a seasoned academic. We will look at the transactional elements of the process to find room for enhancing your experience of this journey. I want to help you reclaim your career. Let's look together and see what happens when possibility is entertained. ​I ask that you begin with one of the Acing Academia starter packages, specially designed for various stages of academic career. From there, meetings can also be booked on a single-session basis. ​

If you are looking for more traditional therapy services, you may have noticed that it is difficult to find a therapist who understands the peculiar workplace pressures and lifestyle that accompany an this career path. The academic world is significantly different from other environments, and having a therapist who is familiar with this reality can facilitate the therapeutic process. As a "trailing spouse" who works intimately with my partner on setting and achieving academic career goals, I understand the peculiar pressures and pitfalls of the professional academic environment.

Acing Academia packages also make great gifts!
