Over the years, many of my clients have felt lost and unsure as to their purpose in life. Many find themselves in jobs they are ill suited for and careers which cause them stress and anxiety. Together, we have worked to help them find a path towards fulfilling their purpose. For those who have already found themselves in their perfect chosen career, I help coach these clients to become assertive, diplomatic and professional when interacting with supervisors, colleagues and coworkers.

Most of us spend at least 1/3 of their lives at work. Given this amount of time, finding a career that we enjoy can be very important. We are most alive and fulfilled when we are using our gifts and talents. Counseling can be the ideal place to explore and identify these. Furthermore, some clients prefer a coaching approach, processing any obstacles that arise on their career path.

Maybe you are unpleased with your current employer and wanting to look for other options. Maybe you're wanting to become self-employed. Or, maybe you are wanting a total career change. Regardless, finding a career path that provides you with a sense of meaning and purpose can be difficult. In my work, I support my clients in the process of uncovering what it is that lights them up and gives them a reason to wake up every morning.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

If you are trying to decide what you want to do with your life, you are not alone. On average, people change jobs at least 12 times. I will work with you to sort out your ambivalence, fears and help you get clarity on the direction you want to go. This therapy may be brief and solution-focused if this is your main goal. My specialty in this area is with women trying to determine if and when to get back in the work world, when they have been out due to being home raising children. This work is fun and energizing.

It's been said that people have around three careers in one lifetime. But how do you know when it's time to switch paths? How do you know if you want to switch paths at all? You might need a career overhaul, a career tweak, or a career change. The uncertainty is daunting and exciting. "Will I need to go back to school?" "Will I have to take a pay cut?" "How can I continue to bring in income while I'm pursuing my goal?" I will help you identify your skill sets, identify and organize your need to haves and nice to haves, and figure out your next right step.

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.

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.

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.

Even those who have managed to avoid the massive cuts and lay-offs may be left with fears and anxiety about the future. Unfortunately, it is our most important relationships, our partnerships and our families, that suffer the most from this burden. It is even more important now to be sure that a family has sufficient communication and understanding to support it's members through these ever changing and difficult times.

Our work is one of the most important parts of our lives. Most of us spend a quarter to half of our hours at work. We may spend more time working than sleeping. Sadly, the work we currently do may not be meaningful or fulfilling. We may have never found work that we do well. We may have lost a job we did for many years and now we can't find a new position. I have been doing career counseling for over 20 years. By assessing your interests, values, and personality, we can work to discover a career path that fits. We will consider all the dynamics of these choices about work: children and family, retirement, retirement, education, and financial considerations.
