Frustration with coworkers, your boss, and your work situation indicate the need for change. Talking to a therapist can help you figure out the direction you need to go to have a fulfilling, successful and lucrative career. I help clients guide themselves to change by following sparks of passion and joy. Therapy can give you an objective perspective on what you can change in your work situation and what you can't. Therapy can help you figure out what's important to you in your career and life.

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.

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.

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.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

Knowing how you come across inter-personally can be a huge asset in advancing your career. Are you soft? Are you a yes-man? Do you come across as angry or controlling? Are there "communication skills" that stop you from getting that promotion? If so, we can use our relationship to explore how you come across. I can provide you honest and direct feedback that others are too uncomfortable to tell you. We can come up with a game-plan concerning how to come across the way you want to. It could involve merely practicing and being aware of how you come across and it could involve longer term therapy that gives you an enhanced sense of self so you come across with more confidence naturally.

I've worked for many years in the corporate environment, first as CEO of a technology company and then as consultant and executive coach. There's excellent research on what skills will help you advance in your career, if you take time to learn them and apply them to the way you work. If you are struggling with work issues or want to plot out your next career move, I invite you to give me a call to talk about how we might work together.

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.

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.

As a person who has had a variety of successful careers in sales and marketing before coming to the profession of psychotherapy, I have had a vast amount of employment experience to draw from and I know what it takes to do the things to prepare you for a new career or to do better in your current one. These include building self esteem and becoming clear on what it is you want to do and how you want to make a difference in the world. All my counseling techniques are utilized in this important area.

Career Counselor

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.
