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.

Do you feel stuck in a job that doesn't bring you joy? Are you doing work that doesn't allow you to shine? We spend so much of our lives working, and research shows most people will have several careers in their lifetime. Wouldn't it be great if our work made us and others happy? Maybe it's time to reinvent yourself professionally. Depth psychotherapy can help you better understand who you are and what you have to contribute to the world. Together we can explore what brings you to life and how you can turn that passion into a career.

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.

Career Counselor

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.

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.

Our careers make up a major part of our life. Careers can be pivotal for creating happiness in life or creating the opposite. In earlier days, people found their first job after high school or college and stayed in that job for the rest of their life. In past decades, the “one job for life” has evolved into six to ten job changing and career changing episodes. Every job change and career change often leads to anxiety, depression, fears, interview panic, lack of self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, somatic reactions and a devastating feeling that includes a lack of self-worth. Being fired and being hired revolve around rejection and the strive to be accepted. Career counseling works to make the above issues more tolerable and rational. It is directed...(view profile to read more)

Zak Forrest, Zachary Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

A successful career contains more than money. One's emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing need to be challenged within a tolerable range to maintain a sustained level of interest, advancement, and growth. What we experience as limitation in career is related to how we see ourselves and how we perceive the world. Areas of stagnation and deadness within career are related to conscious and unconscious biases that prevent us from accessing what could be possible. I work collaboratively with professionals to identify these areas while providing new ways of relating to one's self and career.

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.

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.
