Many think of career counseling as focused conversations that help you figure out what kind of job will make you happy. For most people, choosing a career is a luxury. The single mom isn’t “realizing her potential” or “living her dreams” by working as a fry cook. But she is paying the bills; the hours are flexible; and she lots of time to spend with her kids. When it comes to making money, I am a realist. You may never get paid to play tennis, or make art, or build a sailboat. But if you know what gives you passion, purpose, and direction, you can choose a career path that leaves time and energy for the things you love.

Clients seeking career counseling are usually seeking more than an increase in their income and benefits package. They are often seeking a path to identify and express their life’s purpose professionally (and personally). In our collaboration, clients and I identify their core values and creative options. Also, together we uncover conscious and unconscious “cognitive constructs” that undermine the active pursuit of their ideal career. Finally, we collaboratively design a flexible plan that embraces their life’s purpose, while cultivating insight, skill and the daily commitment needed to attain a professional (and personal) path that will give them the most intrinsic satisfaction.

The work that I do with adult clients usually relates to a developmental life crises. We are always facing dilemmas and struggles that affect our mental health and well being. For many the work that we do in part defines who we are and how we feel about ourselves. The counseling that I provide in may practice relates to either: 1) developing a career plan/path from what has been previously established or 2) forging ahead in un-chartered territory to establish a different career/employment path. Your work or your profession needs to have meaning and you need to know what that meaning is all about.

A large component of career choice is how we view ourselves and what we feel we can accomplish. So there's a big element of identity in there. I use Positive Psychology tools to assess the individual's strengths of character and what they view as important tools for success that they already have in their arsenal. From that perspective, we also look at those character strengths that could use a little further strengthening in order to best serve the individual reach their goals. Dreaming and imagining are big pieces of this process, so we also explore those in depth. I encourage realistic dreaming and identify fears and doubts that getting the way of dreaming and accomplishing dreams.
