Career Coaching

Insightful, Individualized and Proven

Knowing what career you should pursue, feeling stuck in a job role that doesn't fit you, and not knowing what steps to take to attain your work goals are problems that most of us will face in our work lives. 

What are the keys to answering your work-fit questions:

  • Accurate information about what makes work fit you,

  • And skillful guidance about the best ways for you to pursue your work goals and life aspirations.

Dr. Bailey gives you accurate information about who you are "work-wise", then individualized guidance about how you should navigate the steps needed to get to the work and life you want.
