Hi, I’m Linda Faucheux (fo-shay, long 'a') and I have 20 years of experience as a career counsellor and coach. I embarked on my professional counselling career as a psychotherapist dedicated to alleviating suffering, and over time I came to realize that I was a much better counselor when I focused on strengths development, self-actualization and human flourishing. This realization led me to career coaching.

As a career coach, I focus on your strengths, help you clarify and develop your unique genius, facilitate greater awareness of your internal resources for better decision-making, and help you cultivate greater resilience when facing uncertainty and change as you move toward more meaningful work in the world.

My career trajectory has led me to Boulder, Colorado where I became a leader in the field of Career Development in Higher Education. After 20 years of career counseling, teaching career development, and leading career centers, I have continued to evolve professionally by providing individual and organizational coaching for Careers by Design.  Meeting Shirin and joining her team of like-minded heart-based practitioners is a perfect fit for me and I look forward to life-transforming and powerful coaching for my clients.

My focus in career coaching is deeply influenced by my mindfulness meditation practice of 20 years, my graduate training in Contemplative Psychotherapy, my studies in Positive Psychology, Strengths-based counseling, and Solution Focused counseling. As a career coach, I facilitate a process of expanding awareness of your whole self, mind, heart, and body, so that you can access the most evolved part of yourself as you consciously design your new career direction.

I have coached hundreds of individuals just like you, and I'm excited to help you Feel Better, Do Better and Get What You Want, Faster!
