"Helping You Live Fully Through Work You Treasure"


Hi, I am a career coach and licensed professional counselor who helps individuals:

  • identify and gain clarity about their career concern and/or goal
  • get "unstuck" by developing a strategy to confidently tackle their career concern and/or goal.
  • gain the insight, tools and skills needed to determine meaningful work that fits who they are.
  • take ownership of their career journey and not leave it to chance.

Hazina is a Swahili word that means treasure. A fulfilling career life is a treasure worth finding and I want to help you live fully through work you treasure.

"I found most helpful, Catherine's ability to pull from my longings and hopes a concrete plan of how to achieve what it is that I may be good at, how that vocation may be aligned with my values and career goals, and what action steps were needed. The homework and guides she provided were immensely helpful. If you think that you're stuck, or searching for something but don't quite know what it is, Catherine is the perfect person to come alongside you in and meet you where you are."
"Catherine’s attention to detail and great listening skills contribute to her success helping me navigate my transition to a full time career. I have met with Catherine multiple times, and each time she has asked what I wanted to get from the sessions, delivered a session tailored to my needs, and then double checked to make sure that my needs have been addressed."
"Catherine is an amazing coach and it is easy to not just see but feel her love for helping others find work they will treasure. She knows from experience the toll of unfulfilling work. Catherine has a knack for problem solving, figuring things out. She is creative and resourceful in helping clients envision how to plan a course of action to address their career concern confidently and successfully.

"When I began seeing Catherine, I had no idea what to expect as I had never heard of career counseling. It has become one of the most impactful things on my life, not just at work but at home as well. Having the opportunity to dissect things that I personally struggle with in the workplace, especially in a leadership position, is so beneficial. We have worked together not just for my current role but what may be possible within and outside of my current company. I recommend her services to many people that feel “stuck” either in their role or their professional life as it is has been so beneficial for me!"
