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.

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.

What would you really like to do with your time? Work takes up so much of our week, finding something you would love to do with all of that time would make such a difference. Sometimes what stops us from pursuing our dreams is a belief that it just isn't possible. Being free to explore and take just one step towards our dreams can make a world of difference. Let's explore the possibilities.

With the instability of today's economy and job market many people are finding themselves unexpectedly unemployed or stuck in jobs they don't like. Even those who have managed to avoid the massive cuts and lay-offs may be left with fears and anxiety about the future. Unfortunately, it is our most important relationships, our partnerships and our families, that suffer the most from this burden. It is even more important now to be sure that a family has sufficient communication and understanding to support it's members through these ever changing and difficult times. Therapy can provide those tools and encouragement you need to help you and your family stay connected, supported and strong.

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.

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.

Most of us spend at least 1/3 of their lives at work. Given this amount of time, finding a career that we enjoy can be very important. We are most alive and fulfilled when we are using our gifts and talents. Counseling can be the ideal place to explore and identify these. Furthermore, some clients prefer a coaching approach, processing any obstacles that arise on their career path.

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.
