Professional and Career Coaching

At Ninth Wave our goal is to support our clients in making informed decisions about their professional and career choices.

Prior to the launch of Ninth Wave Coaching & Hypnosis, owner Karen Silverberg served in various leadership roles at three major universities. Her extensive experience in the area of management and human resources gives her the unique perspective and understanding when coaching clients on professional and career-related issues.

At Ninth Wave, coaching is a vehicle to get you where you want to be. We use a solution-oriented approach to bring out our client’s very best.

In general, through the coaching process, clients are guided to help overcome challenges, plan for the future and maximize professional and career success. The client and coach work together to uncover what concrete steps the client can take to achieve career objectives. While giving unbiased feedback and helping clients to formulate action plans, Karen is especially qualified as an neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) coach and practitioner to help guide clients break through any behavioral or thinking patterns that may be impeding their desired career ambitions.
