We spend the majority of our time at the workplace and so when we love our job, we have a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. When we either don't have one or don’t love the one we have, we struggle greatly. My approach to career counseling is simple. Let's figure out what factors are important to you in life. Is it structure? Is it flexibility? Do you prefer working with a team or by yourself? Do you like to be creative? Do you like working with people? Once we figure out who you are and what you need to feel fulfilled, we can then find a career that caters to those desires.

All too often, we end up in jobs without purpose that leave us feeling “stuck.” Many people find they don’t know how or why they ended up in their career and wonder if there could be more satisfaction in their professional life. Together, we will explore your values through both assessment and discussion and what makes work meaningful to you. From here, we can strategize and develop a plan using solution-focused techniques to get you “unstuck” and feeling more fulfilled and satisfied in your career.

As a man who changed careers from engineering to psychotherapy in my early 30's, I have my own experience in uncovering and transitioning into an optimal career. Using that, as well as my 25 years as a psychotherapist, I believe I had an unique edge in supporting my clients in connecting to their life purpose and making it happen. Having a fulfilling, meaningful vocation is so critical to our wellbeing and you deserve the opportunity to make that happen, at any point in your life!

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Prior to becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked at IBM for 14 years. IBM started downsizing and I was faced with the decision of having to move out of state in order to keep my job with IBM. I chose to stay and pursue my passion to become a therapist, but it required going to school for 6 years while working full time. I have personally faced changing careers mid-life and have successfully navigated the obstacles that stood in my way. I would love to help you find your way as you are plotting your course. Please give me a call at 714-751-0888 so I can help you remove any barriers that stand in the way of you pursuing your dreams.

Although my title is a Marriage and Family Therapist and not a Career Counselor I do provide support for clients that are exploring their life path which many times includes their career. My approach is to work with each client to formulate their own goals and to create a plan to get there. Together we work on identifying barriers and how mental health may play a part in reaching one's goals. Although I am not a career counselor, I can work with a client short term if that is what the desired outcome is.

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.
