Micheila Storr

Head Editor & Writing Coach

"I genuinely enjoyed the process of working with Pat to clarify my goals and learn how to more effectively meet various challenges. We dug deep psychologically, much deeper than I had expected a career coach would go with me, and every step of the way I felt that Pat really got me. This was an exercise in bravery, compassion, and self-reflection in which I felt seen and supported. I recommend Pat as a career coach (or anything coach) without reservation!"

Quinlan Bruce

Social Media Coordinator

"I was very hesitant and very skeptical coming into my coaching sessions with Careers By Design. Almost immediately, I was so impressed by how my coach, Pat, pivoted my perspective on choosing the right career path for me. We dissected my values, my professional/academic past and even practiced some stress relief techniques that are truly effective. After my 4 sessions I found a job that I'm really enjoying so far."

Senior Product Manager

"Highly recommend! Linda was an exceptional coach through a difficult time. Being in a transitional phase of my life, I was unsure how to invigorate my job search. She was consistently engaged, patient and encouraging as we explored my skills and interests. She offered wonderful advice throughout the process and recommended some essential next steps. Together we built an incredible strength statement which I can draw from and a solid strategy for my resume/cover letters/interviews that will be invaluable in the coming months. I can't say enough good things about her kind and insightful approach. Thank you!"

Focusing on WHO you are before you determine your next career move is at the core of Linda Faucheux’s work in contemplative career counseling. Her compassionate guidance provides deep (powerful) mindfulness techniques that connects head to heart and the awareness that leads to solution-focused outcomes. I highly recommend Linda.
