I met Randi in my late 20s. I suppose you could have called it my quarter life crisis: I had a job in media that lacked the creativity and sense of social purpose that had gotten me interested in journalism in the first place. But strangely, I didn't know how I'd ended up there, why I felt unhappy in my work, or what I could do about it. I'd never been to career counseling or life coaching before – if I'm honest, I was a little bit shy and skeptical. Weren't my problems terribly trivial, and couldn't I just sort them out alone? But after my first session with Randi I knew this was one of the best investments I could make in my career and in myself, and I'm so glad I did. She was free of judgment and made me feel full of hope. She helped me clarify my career goals and ultimately find a job that I loved. She also helped me develop a vision for and launch a creative project I had long wanted to do - not only working with me to get it off the ground but continuously encouraging me to say focused on following through. Nearly four years later, I'm still working with Randi regularly. She has coached me through some extraordinary changes – a new job, moving to a new country, getting married. I can honestly say that I have never been happier and more satisfied with my life and my work. What I love most about Randi is that, like a true guide, she helps me find the answers to complex problems within myself, rather than simply telling me what to do. Her insight, empathy and razor sharp instincts have always pointed me in the right direction. I leave our sessions feeling empowered and confident in my own capacity for decision making and action. She has brought focus to my often scattered sensibilities, and brought realism and reassurance in difficult times. It’s hard to imagine my life now without Randi. These days I think of her as a life collaborator as well as a life coach – I wouldn’t make any big decision without getting her wise and insightful perspective first. More...

I would highly recommend Randi as a career and life coach and workshop facilitator. She has been an amazing support for many years and has helped me create powerful changes in both my career and my life. I now have my ideal career that matches my values, interests, talents and experience where I get to make a difference every day. She has helped me navigate through the joys and challenges of life while helping me overcome obstacles that get in my way from being my best self. She has been instrumental in helping me achieve greater work-life balance through the work we have done together. Every step of the way she has been encouraging and supportive while also challenging me in various ways to clarify and move forward with my vision. I have found Randi to be very professional, kind, insightful, wise and a great role model and champion. Thank you Randi for all that you have done to help me in the transformation of my career and life! More...

I can't say enough good things about Randi. I've worked with her three times over the past decade (in one-on-one coaching sessions, for a few months each time). Though I was at a different point in my life/career each time, Randi's insight & guidance were consistently invaluable and helped me successfully progress to the next phase of my life/career. Randi has helped me confront challenges and overcome inertia. She's a wealth of wisdom, valuable perspectives, resources, and well-thought out (and actionable) ideas. She challenges me when my thinking strays in non-helpful ways & keeps me on course & headed in the right direction. And she's just a really nice & warm person, has a great attitude that's contagious, and is a pleasure to work with. Randi can help in so many ways, whether you're at a crossroads in your life/career and want to make a big change....or if you'd just like to do some fine-tuning, find a situation that will make you happier, or work on work/life balance. Because I moved away from the Bay Area a few years ago, our most recent batch of coaching sessions were via phone. I initially wasn't sure how that would work out, but it was great and the sessions were every bit as valuable as our face-to-face ones. I'm looking forward to utilizing Randi's expertise & wisdom as an ongoing resource throughout my life & career! More...

I have been working with Randi as my career and life coach and have found our work together very helpful and supportive in moving forward and making positive changes in both my career and life.

I came to see Randi initially for direction on a career transition. I was burned out and felt like I needed a change. She gave me tools to assess my strengths, talents and interests and to help me realize my potential, and now, with more clarity of direction, I am in the process of seeking a career that is aligned with my purpose and passion and feeling excited about my new direction.

I also have been going through some challenging life situations. Randi was able to give me new perspective and helped me maneuver through the roadblocks I encountered. She was supportive in my endeavors and helped me to have the courage to move past my fears.

For both career and life issues, it has been helpful having someone to hold me accountable for my goals in order to stay on track. I have been able to stretch myself both professionally and personally during our time working together and Randi was an integral part of that process. Randi is a delight to work with, and I highly recommend her as both a career and life coach.

Q&A

I love helping people gain clarity about career and/or life direction as well as helping people discover their goals/vision and working collaboratively to get there. I have been doing this work (both individually in person and by phone, as well as teaching workshops and classes) for about 20 years and still love it and find it endlessly rewarding. Whenever I speak or teach to groups, I consistently hear that I seem to have a true passion for my work.

I had worked at jobs, but knew something was missing. I wasn't using all of skills, talents and interests. Now I am and like to help clients and students do the same, discover and create meaningful work and lives in various ways. The work is different with every client, depending on their goals, what they are needing and who they are.

Because I love what I do and the work will benefit you! I am very experienced, been doing this work for about 20 years and am still very enthusiastic about it. I have career coaching, life coaching and counseling training, degrees and certificates and a wealth of experience. My work has helped many students and clients over the years. I regularly get emails and cards of thanks and appreciation from current or previous clients. You can read more about what many clients who have worked with me say on my website, my linked in profile, Bark reviews (just getting started with these) and on my google page.
