Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

2900 Bristol St., Suite G-201, Costa Mesa, California 92626 | 714-751-0888

Prior to becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked at IBM for 14 years. IBM started downsizing and I was faced with the decision of having to move out of state in order to keep my job with IBM. I chose to stay and pursue my passion to become a therapist, but it required going to school for 6 years while working full time. I have personally faced changing careers mid-life and have successfully navigated the obstacles that stood in my way. I would love to help you find your way as you are plotting your course. Please give me a call at 714-751-0888 so I can help you remove any barriers that stand in the way of you pursuing your dreams.

Research Psychoanalyst Candidate

222 W. Main St., Ste. 203, Tustin, California 92780 | 949-375-2235

Trying to find the right career can be a daunting, stressful endeavor. Using psychoanalytic techniques, I work with clients to establish an understanding of strengths and character that facilitates an ability to work toward making an informed and grounded choice of career. Furthermore, by beginning with insight, clients also develop key skills to manage conflict while at work and to overcome stumbling blocks to creativity and productivity.

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.

Clients seeking career counseling are usually seeking more than an increase in their income and benefits package. They are often seeking a path to identify and express their life’s purpose professionally (and personally). In our collaboration, clients and I identify their core values and creative options. Also, together we uncover conscious and unconscious “cognitive constructs” that undermine the active pursuit of their ideal career. Finally, we collaboratively design a flexible plan that embraces their life’s purpose, while cultivating insight, skill and the daily commitment needed to attain a professional (and personal) path that will give them the most intrinsic satisfaction.
