I am a psychotherapist and career development authority with a practice in New York City. I enjoy bringing the skills of a psychotherapist—analyzing motivation, exploring conflict—into the workplace arena as well as in my office. I have considered, in books and articles, ways to leverage peoples’ transition skills while containing their ambivalence toward change. My practice includes people contemplating career shifts as well as career development.

Authors Alan Bernstein and Peg Streep show us how to let go when we need to and how to start over. A guide to increasing our emotional and mental flexibility, assessing our goals, and knowing when to hang in or bail out, it tackles our tendencies to overanalyze, ruminate, and put a positive spin on situations we actually need to avoid. In a culture which perceives quitting as a last resort, the authors show that it's an essential tool for a happy and successful life.
