Good Work Guidance™
Using Mindfulness to Find Meaningful Work
I have been sharing the value of a right livelihood orientation to seeding and cultivating a fulfilling career, including the practices of simple living, community building, and mindfulness for more than 35 years. During this time, I’ve helped hundreds of individuals launch or accelerate themselves along the path to meaningful work.
Leveraging my own learning about using mindfulness to find meaningful work and consistently using feedback from my clients, I developed a proprietary career guidance process that I fully share with my clients.
I focus specifically on overcoming the obstacles and challenges that can interfere with a smooth career journey both inner (self-work) and outer (the impact of others).
My clients have included both those who work for themselves and those who prefer to work for others but both seeking greater meaning and fulfillment in their work.
- artists, crafters, musicians, inventors, and makers of all kinds
- cause-driven nonprofit initiatives
- small professional practices including attorneys and paralegals, business consultants, financial advisors, and healthcare practitioners
- small and very small hotels, restaurants, and spas
- small manufacturers and wholesalers
- small and really small specialty retailers
- Anybody with self-starting energy and a desire to explore business as right livelihood.
When my clients face dissatisfaction and unhappiness at work, or find themselves looking at a work or life transition, or feel ready to engage in active learning in order to support self-development and increased self-awareness, I help them figure out what to include in their “every-day carry,” what to put in their “backpacks,” and how to find the waypoints along the path.
I offer Individual and group sessions in-person or online.
Good Work Guidance™ is the brand for my career guidance services to provide coaching to employees who aspire to more meaningful work, from line-workers and managers to executives, owners, and start-up entrepreneurs.
I also offer courses, workshops, webinars, and other chances to learn as an extension of the coaching or consulting I do.
Good Work Guidance™ is available online and, occasionally, in-person for those living or visiting the San Francisco Bay Area or the New England coast between Boston and Portland, Maine.
I have helped hundreds of educators, lawyers, bankers, stockbrokers, physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, artisans, artists, performers, and others find their own unique path to meaningful work.

If you are a manager or executive facing a job transition, suffering in your current position, or looking for guidance about making your next career moves down the path to meaningful work, I offer private sessions online (or in person for those living or visiting the San Francisco Bay Area or the New England coast between Boston and Portland, Maine—when I’m in residence in either location).
I’ve helped dozens of corporate managers and executives from such organizations as Apple, Bank of America, Esprit, Hewlett Packard, Levi Strauss, Prudential, the University of California, and Wells Fargo Bank to name a few.
