When I first began working with Andrea, I was nearing the end of a 7 year career at the same company and was only weeks away from the dreaded job search. I knew I wanted to switch industries, but I hadn’t decided which path was best for me and I didn’t know where to start. After our first session alone I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders; Andrea helped me break my thoughts down into small, manageable pieces and take a closer look into my options from new perspectives. We set small goals together and the burden slowly turned into inspiration. Eventually I narrowed it down to 2 very different, but exciting and challenging options. Because of my work with Andrea, I was able to weigh my options in a way that I wouldn’t have figured out on my own. Her professionalism, guidance, compassion and intuition gave me the structure and freedom I needed to calmly handle this pivotal transition in my life. She showed me that excitement can overpower anxiety, even during the most stressful times. And when I was offered my dream job, Andrea was my first call.
