Many of us will spend more time at our job than in any other single activity in our lives. It is important that we are feeling okay about the work we do, the people with whom we work (and our interactions with them), and that we return home with enough energy to enjoy life there as well. For many of us, this is not the case. I work with clients to assist them in either trying to make their current job work or get clear that it is time to make a change in employment so that they can find this important part of life fulfilling. I draw on my own experiences in corporate US and Japan, my training as a coach, as well as the counseling skills I have garnered through my education.

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.

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.
