Let's Work Together...
...to launch careers
You’re close to graduation and that great-fit position is not yet in your hands. What will happen if you graduate without a job? This whole process can be stressful for parents too…
With Career Launch Coaching, you'll craft a personal brand including career wants/needs, professional style, and trademark strengths. Then…we’ll skip the job search confusion, mystery, and anxiety with tried and true strategies and expert support to systematically launch you into a great career.
And... Your first job positions you for every other future opportunity, so we'll be setting you for true long term success.
...to take a career leap
You know what you want but don’t know how to get there. Phrases like “I just keep getting in my own way”, or “I’m ready for the next move… I just never really go for it”. The job hunt feels like a mysterious black hole, and you feel like even before you get to that point, there is something holding you back from going after your next season in life.
In our coaching sessions, we’ll work together to redesign your message. I’ll guide you in crafting a compelling personal brand by discovering your voice, value, and impact. Take the career leap with expert support from job search, resume, and LinkedIn to networking, interviewing, and negotiations.
...to start a new adventure
You love your life and career, and want to take it up another level…or maybe you want to make some major life/career changes. Regardless, you feel it in your bones… you are so ready to step into your next season. How can you thrive, stretch your potential, and make an impact?
Through Laser-focused coaching, I’ll help you get to the root of the issue, set life-giving personal and/or career goals, and guide you through major life decisions. You’ll identify and overcome barriers, navigate culture and relationships, and graciously address uncharted territory and difficult conversations. Let’s start your adventure with a toolbox of strategies to take you just about anywhere.
What people are saying...
Patricia has helped me to regain confidence and hope not only in myself, but what God has called me to do.
The mere fact that she is seen as such a valuable asset, and has learned to position herself well with integrity, character, and a high level of service sets her apart to help others do the same.

Thank you so much.
You have no idea what an impact this has on me and how much more I have confidence in what I can do!! Thank you for that.”
— Victoria A.
Before I worked with Patricia… I asked people for advice, they mentioned that it would be difficult since I did not have enough experience. I felt very discouraged. However, Patricia identified how many relevant skills I already developed… Patricia made me realize that there are many pathways to get to my career goal, and I have a lot of potential.

I had just had a year of "success" in the world's terms (six-figure income, an overabundance of client and ministry work), but I was heading toward burnout and wasn't moving toward my life and heart goals. The coaching I received from Patricia Ortega brought so many revelations! Her grace-filled, compassionate, and Spirit-led approach illuminated external barriers and internal resistances and helped me overcome them. Her guidance showed me how to reclaim my gifts of creativity and expression. I have moved into a new rhythm of worship, life, and work that feels amazing!
