Careers are integral to the identities of many people, while for others careers are simply means for attaining a happy life. Whether you’re developing your first career or looking to switch careers, I use a combination of assessment batteries and counseling to explore my clients’ goals, preferences, and aptitudes to identify their career path and develop a plan for achieving it.

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.

The approach that I use is to use current on line career tests/assesments available for people by integrating Myers-Briggs theory and levels of interests and passions when it comes to finding a proper career. As they take these tests and assessment, I then use a few books such as "Now, Discover your Strengths" as a way to help people integrate their gifts, talents, interests, passions and desires so that they feel that they can succeed in life.

Most people will have very different multiple careers in their lives. This can be very confusing and frightening. We all want to make the right choices. We want to be happy in our work and make enough money to live the life style we desire. We want to make as few mistakes in our choices as possible. We will work to clear the clouds by getting closer to understanding our needs and desires. We will set action goals, identify targets, evaluate results and continue refining the process until we are satisfied with the results.

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.

Feeling discouraged or dissatisfied with work can be stressful and confusing. It can be difficult to know what steps to take to find fulfillment and satisfaction. Talking with a trained professional can help you sort out your feelings, wants, needs, and options. In the safety of a therapy relationship, you can process through what might have felt overwhelming before and find empowerment, motivation, and hope.

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.

Although my title is a Marriage and Family Therapist and not a Career Counselor I do provide support for clients that are exploring their life path which many times includes their career. My approach is to work with each client to formulate their own goals and to create a plan to get there. Together we work on identifying barriers and how mental health may play a part in reaching one's goals. Although I am not a career counselor, I can work with a client short term if that is what the desired outcome is.

The careers we choose and do in life become an identity and sense of purpose that can either fulfill us or drown us in misery. When we work on increasing our individual power we are able to work towards that which fulfills us (mentally, physically, and emotionally) so that we aren't left working out of fear, scarcity, or insecurity. Instead, our career becomes a place of excitement, joy, and adventure.

Your 20s and 30s can be challenging in regards to career and relationships. You may enter a profession only to find that it doesn't suit your nature and interests. It's okay to change your course in seeking the right fit, your niche. Don't let society determine the rules for what is appropriate career exploration. Its okay to change your mind. Don't be afraid to test new waters. Lets explore those waters together so you don't drown in the wrong profession. If you are returning to the workforce after raising your children, I can help you regain confidence. I myself re-entered the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom for 11 years.
