Are you:


  • Sick of not living up to your professional potential?


  • Frustrated that your attempts to inspire and engage others are falling flat?


  • Overwhelmed by unsuccessfully attempting to juggling your responsibilities at work and at home?


  • Unsure of what to do to be more effective at your job?


  • Unsure of how to get yourself ready for the next level up in your career?


  • Fed up with working at a job that doesn’t stoke your passions?


  • Confused about what your career path should be?



  • Ready to do something about it?

You spend the majority of your waking hours at work – is it too much to ask that they be productive, rewarding, and successful?

Of course not! Let's get you moving towards accomplishing your goals today!

I’m Dr. Patricia Thompson, and I’m a licensed psychologist and executive coach who has been successfully working with clients with all sorts of concerns for over fifteen years. It's my passion to help my clients to transform their lives by achieving greater success at work, increased happiness at home, and a sense of balance between the two. After all, doing good work is great, but if you're unfulfilled and burnt out while you're doing it, what's the point?

I’ve been featured in the media in places such as The Harvard Business Review, Forbes, Fast Company, INC., Entrepreneur, Time, CNN, Wharton Business Radio, ABC News Radio, and others, providing expertise on career, relationships, happiness, and purpose. My Executive Coaching packages are tailored for ambitious clients like you who are serious about turning their lives around, playing a bigger game, and enjoying all the beauty life has to offer.

How can you become more effective? What brings you meaning? How can you move on to bigger and better things? Which careers would bring you the most satisfaction?



It’s okay if you’re unsure about the answer to those questions. Together we will get you there.


Through executive coaching together, we will focus on increasing your performance in your current professional life by setting clear goals and working together to achieve them. We will also work on developing your talents and abilities so you’ll be well on the way to taking your next professional step – whatever you want that to be. And, if you’re unsure about what your career path should be, we will discover your talents, skills, passions, dreams, and everything else that makes you tick, and determine specific occupations that would be an ideal match for you.


My approach to career coaching is eclectic. First, I put a lot of effort into getting to know you on a deep level – your values, history, dreams, goals, likes, dislikes, and everything else that makes you the wonderfully unique human being you are. If needed, I also use personality instruments and career interest inventories so we can get a clear sense of your strengths, developmental opportunities, interests, and overall makeup. As a licensed psychologist, I have access to a lot of measures that many other coaches are unable to use, and I use them to our advantage, to get a really well-rounded perspective of you that addresses any potential blind spots you may have. We also consider practical factors like pre-existing skills you possess, desired income, and additional lifestyle factors. Then, we pull it together to create a detailed plan for you and your career.




Collaborating with you to achieve greater success in your life’s work is an incredibly important (I would even say, sacred) task, and I take it very seriously.

What we will do:


I customize all of my executive coaching packages depending on your unique needs. After all, you are an individual, so a one-size-fits-all package is unlikely to be best-suited to you. So, after our initial complimentary Discovery Session, I will propose a package that I believe will help you accomplish your goals. The package may include:


  • 60-minute coaching sessions (at a minimum, we generally start with a commitment to four sessions, and then reassess from there). In the calls, we will we will set goals, review progress, blast through blocks, problem-solve, stretch you, support you, strategize, and fine-tune.


  • Homework, worksheets, and assignments.


  • An in-depth psychological assessment conducted online (including some tests that can only be interpreted by licensed professionals).


  • Career-related instruments to see how your personality and interests align with over 250 occupations.


  • A report I write especially for you, based on all of the information I have gathered.


  • Unlimited email access.


  • A welcome packages with some goodies to assist you in your development, including a complimentary copy of my book, The Consummate Leader: a Holistic Guide to Inspiring Growth in Others…and in Yourself.


What you will gain through coaching:


  • Clarity about the specific steps that you will need to take to move ahead towards your goals.


  • Confidence, as you experience greater success and mastery in your chosen target areas.


  • Deeper skills in the areas you need them most, and an action plan for continued progress.


  • Pride and fulfillment as a result of knowing you are growing and developing.


  • Greater success, and a deep belief that you can achieve your personal and professional targets.

"Patricia helped me, and my team, break through the disfunction and barriers that hindered us."

"Early in my career and leadership journey I was lucky enough to work with Patricia. Through her brilliance as an executive coach she saw quickly (then leveraged) that which highly motivated me; a combination of pushing and pulling, highlighting strengths and deficits, sharing what others saw in me versus how I saw myself. I owe much of my successful progression as a leader to her. Later in my career, as I lead in one of the most challenging team environments in my career, Patricia helped me, and my team, break through the disfunction and barriers that hindered us. In retrospect, the gifts I appreciate most from Patricia are the time she saved me, and the relationships she helped me create (and sometimes save)."


Paul Noble, President at EZ Prints Holdings Inc.

"Patricia... possesses both a solid foundation of psychological knowledge and an innate business-oriented mind."

"Patricia is a bright and highly talented professional who possesses both a solid foundation of psychological knowledge and an innate business-oriented mind that allows her to apply her training to improve the functioning and success of her client companies. In addition, her straight-forward, genuine style and fun sense of humor make her both a fabulous colleague and a trusted advisor to her clients."

"She has a unique talent for helping to bring important issues into focus."


“Patricia worked with me and the management team at a family owned company for several years. She is a great communicator and takes time to understand the priorities of the people she is working with. In working with her, I especially noticed her strength in helping clients who are leading through periods of change. She has a unique talent for helping to bring important issues into focus. She is also excellent at helping with leadership as it comes to decision making and managing stress while being the decision maker."


Bill Cleary

Vice-President, Wells Fargo

"She helped me break out of unhelpful mental models and address needed gaps."

"When I moved out to Silicon Valley, I was looking to make the move into an executive position. I was somewhat stuck in middle management and sought Patricia's guidance to help me learn and mature in my current role while repositioning myself for the next step. I appreciated Patricia's candor and relevant 'assignments' in-between sessions. She helped me break out of unhelpful mental models and address needed gaps.  I have since landed a VP role in a startup and am now growing a team under me."
