My approach to career counseling begins with assessment of client's history and interest. We will focus on helping you find an occupation that fits your unique qualities -- your abilities, talents, needs, values, and interests -- and the life-style you want to live. One oft he best way to do this is to help you learn more about yourself, and we will accomplish this by using various test and interest inventories that measures your interest,values and personality. I also work with clients seeking to address and resolve any work related issues as well as those that are planning to pursue a different career path.

I support men and women seeking career reentry, career changes, and career termination, with identifying and evaluating their values, interests, meaning, choices, and barriers from a Social Cognitive Career Theory and Existential Career Theory. I approach career as a person's unique way to live out their authentic meaning, identity, and that all careers have the potential to be meaningful. I employ assessments of career interests and personal values, and a conceptual decision-making framework to support you in processing your career and resignation/retirement choices. I specialize in supporting, in particular, caregivers, widowed, divorced, and stay-at-home adults seeking career reentry.

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.
