After a decade of working as a career coach, I've found that leaders who feel stuck in their career are dealing with negative patterns that they don’t know how to shift. The trick to career alignment is through an introspective process that helps you choose career opportunities that reinforce the patterns that are fulfilling.

You'll get crystal clear on whether you want to change your job, career, employer, industry, or start a business. You'll learn strategies to build your network, tap the hidden job market, and design a roadmap of your next steps.

Find your inner compass

My experience with Danielle was life changing. Having completed her program, there is no doubt that my strengths, talents and what I find fulfilling, is imperative to happiness in life and work. She has great active listening skills and intuition and really helps guide her clients to discovering their best selves. Danielle has a format, a methodology to finding "your inner compass" and it works.

—Lauren R..

Discover what makes you tick

Danielle helped me to discover what makes me tick, reconnect with my passions, and discover how my skills and passions could be applied at the next stop on my career path. I left my sessions with a sense of clarity and comfort in my job search, as well as techniques, knowledge and resources I could apply.

—Joshua W.
Attorney Advisor

Feel hopeful and inspired 

I always left my zoom meetings with Hunter, feeling so hopeful and truly inspired! I remember telling her on one of our first sessions, that I always felt so good after talking with her, that I wanted to do what she did! I told her that I wanted to be someone's Hunter; the reason someone smiled again, found their confidence and felt hopeful for a better future, after coming from a place of negativity and defeat. Even though I said this early on, it didn't hit me until much later in the game, that my true passion was in coaching.

Never in a million years would I have come into this program thinking I'd have the skills or bravery to leave the corporate world and start my own coaching business, but that is exactly what I am in the process of doing! 

—Jen Clark
Nutrition Coach


Manifest your perfect career 

I had been in the medical sales industry for 15 years and felt lost and unsure if I wanted to continue that career path. Danielle helped me realize what my true passions are, what my priorities are, and what I'm good at.

Danielle helped me to manifest my perfect career.

... a few months after I ended my sessions, I took the leap and created a career that has given me my life back, and that I truly enjoy!

A better understanding of myself and what drives me

"I LOVED the process of working with Inner Compass Coach. I went into the process looking for some clarity on where I wanted to take my career. I knew I wanted to do something different, but didn't know WHAT. I really enjoyed that Inner Compass had a really specific approach to our exercises, and a concrete process to get to a conclusion. I love where ended up, and I'm SO excited to move forward and chase my (much clearer) now career path!"

Reconnect with your Inner Self and Identify Your True Calling

For a while now, I've been looking for a fulfilling career, rather than just a job. I have also been sidetracked by seeing what my friends and colleagues have moved on to do and that narrowed my vision on what I thought I should be doing. Working with Danielle, however, helped me understand my narrative - what the circumstances were that drove me to find satisfaction in my previous careers. With a better understanding of myself and what intrinsically drives me, I've been able to identify a career that I believe I will find fulfilling.

—Stephan Ahn
Lead Advisor


Discover your motivating talents

Last fall, I went through a career coaching process with Inner Compass Coach. I was very intrigued with their premise that how I liked to play as a child would guide me to a new career path.

Through guided video instruction and targeted reflection questions, I reminisced on how I played both as a child and now as an adult. I discovered that two of my motivating talents are creating and problem solving. It's those two innate talents that I loved using as a teacher, that I missed using as a data coordinator, and that I will love using again in my next career as an instructional designer.

The Inner Compass Coaching process--guided by eight sessions with my wonderful personal coach, Hunter Dickson, was ultimately magical in how it pointed me clearly in the direction of my next career.

Gain Valuable Networking Skills

Danielle's approach to helping me figure out my best path as I transitioned careers was right-on. Danielle is a great and wise listener. Additionally, my networking skills went through the roof as a result of my time working with Danielle.

After working with Danielle, I took a risk on a seven-month program in data science and ended up with three competitive job offers. I couldn't have done it without her.
