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.

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.

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.

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.
