Neal Winblad, MFT

Life is short. Going to a job everyday that you hate is a good way to waste it. Knowing what job is right for you is not easy. You really need to look at who you are and what you want from life. Getting to know who you are, and not who your parents, spouse, or children think you are is one of life's most difficult challenges. What I love doing most is helping people discover who they really are. But, once you know who you are and what you want to do, you also need to develop a reasonable transition plan to get from here to there. This takes a grounded and realistic approach in additon to liberating your creative juices. Being both a visionary and an engineer, I can help you master both.

Jeff Cohen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Having made a career transition myself in my mid-thirties, I understand the variety of issues involved with this process. Some may know what they want to do but have difficulty managing the transition, for financial or other reasons. Others may lack clarity about what they even want to do, while others still may be uncertain if the primary issue resides with their work or other factors which make it unsatisfactory, such as a difficult manager, or concerns around performance or self-confidence. Our work is an important dimension of our lives and an expression of who we are, so wherever the block lies, I'll help you resolve the impediments that are in the way of having a fulfilling career.

Todd Harvey, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Knowing how you come across inter-personally can be a huge asset in advancing your career. Are you soft? Are you a yes-man? Do you come across as angry or controlling? Are there "communication skills" that stop you from getting that promotion? If so, we can use our relationship to explore how you come across. I can provide you honest and direct feedback that others are too uncomfortable to tell you. We can come up with a game-plan concerning how to come across the way you want to. It could involve merely practicing and being aware of how you come across and it could involve longer term therapy that gives you an enhanced sense of self so you come across with more confidence naturally.

Therapy can help make the time you spend working more worthwhile and beneficial to you and everyone you come in contact with. If psychometric career testing is indicated or desired, I will refer you to appropriate testing resources.

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I help you overcome obstacles to knowing what you want to do, including negative self-esteem and lack of experience. I point you toward informing yourself about the job market, what's available and getting informational interviews. I counsel you on how to assess workplaces by learning what the "norms" are (unconscious rules about what we do and say here) and whether the norms are abusive. Is the atmosphere tense? Are people forced to work very long hours? Are they given necessary time and support to get the task done? These are questions you want to answer somehow, perhaps by interviewing people who work there before you apply.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Do you want work that nourishes and inspires you to grow? Work that gives you more than a paycheck? A career that allows you to leverage your best strengths? Are you wondering what motivates you from deeply within? Starting a new career can feel so daunting. It is like stepping into the unknown. If you think of changing careers you may be scared that you have to start all over. I help you identify transferable skills that you can apply to your new career. Structured exercises between sessions can help you clarify your interests and strengths. We can also address insecurities and limiting beliefs that may hold you back from having the career you want.
