Career counseling is more complicated than originally thought, particularly after someone has tried the job market and been out of it for a while. We need to look at temperament and interests and good "job fit." We also need to examine what has happened previously in jobs and we often do career testing. We determine what kinds of patterns might be making employment difficult and how we can remediate that.

I help people explore the things that give them joy and satisfaction. There are many resources in the DC area that can help you connect with a particular industry or type of career, but if you aren't really sure what you want to do or if you want to change careers, I may be the right counselor for you. I have several tools and activities that I use in sessions to help you explore the unexpressed aspects of your personality, skills, and interests. Do you know what you want to do but keep bombing out in the interviews? I can help you develop better interviewing skills.

Disclaimer here: I do not do the standard career testing. You may have to go elsewhere for that. What I am most interested in is helping people to find work that engages them fully and adds to their sense of purpose. Research tells us that people are happiest in their work if they are expressing their top character strengths every day. There is a great online test, which we could use to learn what your top strengths are and then we could explore how you could use them more - in the job you have or in the job that you are searching for.

It can be very hard to find exactly what you want to do in life. Uncovering one's purpose, though supposedly intuitive, can be elusive and transitive. What's more, messages from friends, family and society can add to the confusion. You may feel like you know what you are doing right now is not quite right, but you are not sure what is the next step. Or the thing you love to do does not fit with other dreams you have for your life. Working together we will unpack the complex pieces of career and purpose, allowing you greater freedom and clarity from which to make decisions. You do not have to know right now what is next, only that you wish things to be different.

Are you growing bored, unappreciated or frustrated at work? A person's God-given temperament should always be considered when determining a career path. An assessment will be administered to assist in career/occupational guidance. This assessment will aid in understanding and identifying an individual's strengths, weaknesses, stressors, intellectual energies, decision making skills, and the desire to take on responsibilities. Based on the results of the assessment, and with my guidance, the client will become more aware of careers and/or jobs which may, or may not, serve them well in the areas of emotional and mental stimulation and satisfaction.
