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.

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.
