What if I told you that you could feel lighter, more at ease, and reignite your sense of direction, without changing a single thing about yourself?

As a registered career counselor, yoga teacher, and mindfulness practictioner, I built this community based off of two simple truths: 1. we are human beings, not human do-ers and 2. you are perfect exactly the way you are.  

Together we will create a strategy that supports your well-being, whether that's using design thinking methods to tinker and experiment, tapping into your Strengths to discover what you naturally do well, or customizing your career marketing materials with what you uniquely bring to the job market.

What People Say

I highly recommend Samantha McGurgan for career management counseling services. She is all of the things that you could possibly want in an advisor - curious, caring, empathetic, insightful, funny, thoughtful and a master of asking just the right questions to broaden your thinking. No judgement - just guidance and practical advice from a skilled career management practitioner. The "life design" approach really worked for me and offers a practical, realistic approach to career management.

The future can be very overwhelming but if you break it down in to smaller, more controllable aspects the task of getting to where you want to be in life doesn't seem as daunting.
