Is academia making you miserable?

Are you becoming restless, depressed, apathetic, or cynical? Are you struggling to find a job or finish your degree? Is your teaching feeling rote? Have you lost your enthusiasm for research? Are you resenting your students, your colleagues, your institution, or your discipline?

If so, it’s time to escape the ivory tower.

That may mean leaving academia and finding another career you can be as passionate, idealistic, and excited about as you once were about your work.

It may simply mean learning to let go of some of the myths of academia so that you can stop throwing yourself against what you think it should be and embrace what is — even while you make change.

Whether you need to find and embrace a new career or simply examine the beliefs that are keeping you stuck and unhappy, I can help you craft a career that is exciting, inspiring, and deeply satisfying.

So put your feet up, take a look around, and join the conversation about the struggles of academia and how you can turn those struggles into joys — one way or another. If you’d like more directed help, check out my coaching options.

Whatever you need, whatever you choose, I wish you peace, passion, and joy.
