Career and Executive Coaching
You spend the majority of your waking hours at work – is it too much to ask that they be productive and rewarding? It’s not too much to ask, and that reality can be yours.
I’m Dr. Patricia Thompson, and I’m a licensed psychologist and executive coach who has been successfully working with clients with all sorts of concerns for over fifteen years. I specialize in using positive psychology to help people achieve deeper relationships, more fulfilling careers, better health, and happier lives. I’ve been featured in the media in places such as Time, CNN, MindBodyGreen, Tiny Buddha, Entrepreneur, the CEO Magazine, Family Friend Working, Fast Company, and others, providing expertise on career, relationships, happiness, and purpose. My Life Coaching packages are tailored for ambitious clients like you who are serious about turning their lives around, playing a bigger game, and enjoying all the beauty life has to offer.
How can you become more effective? What brings you meaning? How can you move on to bigger and better things? Which careers would bring you the most satisfaction?
It’s okay if you’re unsure about the answer to those questions. Together we will get you there.
Through executive coaching together, we will focus on increasing your performance in your current work-life, by setting clear goals and partnering to achieve them. We will also work on developing your talents and abilities so you’ll be well on the way to taking your next professional step – whatever you want that to be. And, if you’re unsure about what your career path should be, we will discover your talents, skills, passions, dreams, and everything else that makes you tick, and determine specific occupations that would be an ideal match for you.
My approach to career coaching is eclectic. First, I put a lot of effort into getting to know you on a deep level – your values, history, dreams, goals, likes, dislikes, and everything else that makes you the wonderfully unique human being you are. If needed, I also use personality instruments and career interest inventories so we can get a clear sense of your strengths, developmental opportunities, interests, and overall makeup. As a licensed psychologist, I have access to a lot of measures that many other coaches are unable to use, and I use them to our advantage, to get a really well-rounded perspective of you that addresses any potential blind spots you may have. We also consider practical factors like pre-existing skills you possess, desired income, and additional lifestyle factors. Then, we pull it together to create a detailed plan for you and your career.
Collaborating with you to achieve greater success in your life’s work is an incredibly important (I would even say, sacred) task, and I take it very seriously.
“It seems like a mere thank you isn’t enough to express my gratitude for how you have helped me. You exposed me to some occupations that I never would have thought of, and gave me a lot to think about career-wise. You helped me to muster up the courage to leave my old job and I am now in one that I love. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – H.B., New York

“Dr. Thompson is amazing! I was having difficulty as a budding businessman with certain sticking points and difficulty moving forward, and this began to affect my output. But, after a series of sessions with her I experienced an outlook adjustment that has helped me soar in productivity and bottom line results. Thank you!” – W.O., Maryland
Why it works:
You can have all the ability in the world, but if you’re not using it in a way that you’re passionate about, you’re never going to live up to your potential. Research shows that people who see their career as a calling are more productive, fulfilled, and satisfied in their work.
