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.

Our careers make up a major part of our life. Careers can be pivotal for creating happiness in life or creating the opposite. In earlier days, people found their first job after high school or college and stayed in that job for the rest of their life. In past decades, the “one job for life” has evolved into six to ten job changing and career changing episodes. Every job change and career change often leads to anxiety, depression, fears, interview panic, lack of self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, somatic reactions and a devastating feeling that includes a lack of self-worth. Being fired and being hired revolve around rejection and the strive to be accepted. Career counseling works to make the above issues more tolerable and rational. It is directed...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.

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.

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.

Helping individuals understand and step away from old limiting beliefs is a powerful process that moves one from frustrated attempts to change, into authentic change that brings solid results. Regardless if this is a corporate move, new career, starting over, or building a business from the ground up, I can help with the self transformation that is pivotal to successful career building. I have the resources and experience for you to find your way on the road of career success. You owe it to yourself to get the support and tools that can change your life now. Please call me to learn more.

"How can I continue to bring in income while I'm pursuing my goal?"
