Career Development and Education
Career and Vocational Assessments
As a Board Certified Counselor our unique approach is focused on guiding our clients to discover “who they are” as a fundamental component in their identity development. Each individual has been blessed with a talented mind that will allow him or her to thrive in certain professional domains. We assess those innate abilities that authenticate their capacity to perform in distinctive fields of interest. However, they require a discovery process that reveals a pathway that illuminates and transforms the "I can't" to an "I can do this" mindset.
Traditional Career Developmental:
Traditional career development models use personality and interest assessments as a basis for exploration but these instruments are limited by functionally depicting what "other" people have done in their careers and "how," rather than delving into "why" individuals pursue distinctive careers or the purpose of that endeavor. Being able to describe "why" creates a foundational platform to explore areas of interest.
My graduate school knowledge and training in counseling offers expertise from an innovative constructionist approach designed to draw from experiential knowledge that is implicit. Developmentally this allows for life themes to emerge that may be associated with Holland occupational interest themes that converge, revealing elements such as values, problem-solving styles, and inherent drive that compliment their innate talent.
Constructing this understanding necessitates a validation of one's competency to operationalize life’s purpose in certain occupational domains. University assessments do not offer objective abilities assessments nor do they have the time and training to conceptualize their application. Importantly, we offer individuals a rich understanding of their natural abilities that promotes the confidence to elevate their self-concept to visualize how their innate talents may support certain professional fields.
Our counseling goals are to stimulate the hearts and minds of our clients in a manner that allows them to disaggregate “who they are" in order to reconstruct their newfound self. It is a exploratory process that heightens their self-awareness of "how" to use their natural gifts in their personal and professional development that is crystalized as a “good fit.” Finally, it empowers them to enact strategies to fulfill their purpose and their uniqueness by weaving their worldview with the world of work.
