Career Consulting (for Individuals or Groups)
Perhaps more important than my educational expertise, I have personally experienced many of the same issues you might be struggling with. I have been confused about my next career move, unemployed and felt its despair, anxious about leadership & business decisions, struggled with entrepreneurship, worked in dysfunctional environments, returned to work after having a child, enjoyed the challenge of guiding a teen through first jobs, and squirmed my way through a midlife career transition. These experiences provide the empathy and ideas to help you on your journey!
Creativity Consulting (for Individuals, Groups, or Business Workforce Teams)
I came to this work after observing a dramatic drop across the last 2 decades in creative thinking skills, spontaneity, and passion in my university students as well as the career and family counseling clients in my practice. These people struggled with lopsided minds — utilizing only logic, facts, and data — ignoring the power of imagination, intuition, risk-taking, and passion. So when they needed to make important problem-solving decisions, crucial skills were undeveloped and unavailable, and lead to poor decisions, stuckness, and despair. Critical thinking must be balanced with creative thinking for a happy, fulfilled mind and an authentic life. Fuse nurtures creative strategies and opens the space in each of us where intellect can collide with passion and logic welcomes spontaneity.
Workshops on Creativity or Career Development
Fuse challenges the notion that you’re “not creative” through playful workshops combining fun, experiential methods with small group exercises and at-home practice while using research on creative thinking, brain health, career and business strategies.
Imagination smells like popsicles, a spray of watercolors or the inside of an old cello. Take a full breath in. And use the creativity you were born with!
