Many think of career counseling as focused conversations that help you figure out what kind of job will make you happy. For most people, choosing a career is a luxury. The single mom isn’t “realizing her potential” or “living her dreams” by working as a fry cook. But she is paying the bills; the hours are flexible; and she lots of time to spend with her kids. When it comes to making money, I am a realist. You may never get paid to play tennis, or make art, or build a sailboat. But if you know what gives you passion, purpose, and direction, you can choose a career path that leaves time and energy for the things you love.

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.

Are you considering a change in careers? Are you feeling burned out or stagnant in your current job or career? It can be unsettling to feel "stuck" in a place you no longer want to be. It can feel disorienting, not knowing what you want to do next, or how to get there. You may feel you don't have the emotional presence to figure it out. You may feel it is all you can do to get through each day of the position you do have. I can help you turn that around. I would help you to explore your interests, your desires, your strengths and skills. As you start feeling better and more optimistic, you may find yourself with more energy to start moving toward a new idea and setting new goals.
