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.

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.

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.

Career Counselor

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

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.

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.

I help people decide what they want to do with their lives, and make it happen! Over 10 years of experience as a psychologist has taught me the importance of our career choices. You may feel stuck in your current career or paralyzed at the thought of choosing one path over the other. You may have obtained your dream job, only to be struck with a nagging "impostor syndrome" that leaves you feeling anxious an unsure about your competence. The benefit of therapy is that you have someone to talk with, who has studied the experiences and beliefs that hold us back, as well as the ways to overcome them! I am happy to provide a free initial phone consultation to answer your questions. Call me today!

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.

We spend so much time at work shouldn't we put some rigorous thought into finding a career that will offer us a positive experience?

I will work collaboratively with you to make links between your past and present that will help us to better understand what career might work best for you. Whether you are feeling stuck in your job and want to explore different options or just want to take your current career to the next level our therapy can help generate movement in a positive direction.
