Welcome! Wilmington Career Counseling is ready to help you create your best life. I’m an experienced career counselor, coach and college advising professional who understands the radical shifts taking place in today’s workplace. It can create confusion for students as they look at colleges, be unsettling for recent grads seeking employment, and overwhelming for those needing to transition in their careers. I’ve helped hundreds identify goals and establish measurable steps to attain them. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC – North Carolina & Michigan), National Board Certified Counselor (NBCC), Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF), and Board Certified Coach (BCC) I believe in the value of agility in today’s robust economy. I’m interested in empowering clients with tools and strategies to make satisfying decisions about college, lifelong learning, employment or retirement. You will select services based on your individual needs. Are you ready? Contact me to get started today!
