We have a specialized career re-entry program that we call BOSS. This stands for Budgeting, Occupation, Scheduling, and Sobriety. Most clients that come into treatment need to find jobs. For some, unemployment has been an ongoing struggle and a contributing factor to their addictions. Helping clients establish budgeting practices helps them learn how to save and prepare for their lives outside treatment. Occupational services such as job application training, mock interviews, and interview follow-up skills help them take the lead in their own future. Scheduling is something that many learn for the first time while in treatment, and practicing sobriety by attending meetings is important.

How recent in history is the idea of a personal career? How universal is the importance of having a career or does it depend on where you live in the world? Here in the United States, we are so driven to succeed that it is difficult to stop and consider not only what it is that we are striving for and why, but also ask ourselves who's dreams are we chasing? Do the goals that we have established for ourselves reflect our personal ethics? Do we truly desire the things we are working so hard for? These are some of the questions that I will be asking you in order to help you begin to contemplate the impetus behind your actions and how it is connected to a larger context.

A wise person once told me, "Find something you love to do and find someone to pay you to do it." But the reality is that many people find themselves in careers they don't enjoy or lose the career they did enjoy. Whether you are disatisfied with your career, dealing with work related stress, or wondering what you are going to do next, counseling can provide a framework for you to work through the dissonance in your work life and get on the path of meaningful fulfillment with regards to your work or career, regardless of what stage in your life you are at.

So making that work as good as it can be is vitally important to our health, sanity, and general well-being. Yet that, like so many things, can be easier said than done.

We spend the majority of our time at the workplace and so when we love our job, we have a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. When we either don't have one or don’t love the one we have, we struggle greatly. My approach to career counseling is simple. Let's figure out what factors are important to you in life. Is it structure? Is it flexibility? Do you prefer working with a team or by yourself? Do you like to be creative? Do you like working with people? Once we figure out who you are and what you need to feel fulfilled, we can then find a career that caters to those desires.

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.

I have worked extensively in career counseling; having provided training and education to college campuses for 10+ years. What I have often encountered is blocks in decision making patterns, which leads to struggles in people finding their niche or correct direction to take as it relates to their career choices. Each individual encompasses a different set of assets that I can help to untangle the impasses they may have to choose an effective career path. We do this together by researching each person's strengths that will allow them to make decisions based on these findings, as well as environmental influences, i.e., marketing approaches, resume writing, and what will success strategies.
