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.

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.

Together we can think through what it is you really want to do, and what viable possibilities the circumstances present, and where the two overlap. Whether you're in quarterlife, midlife, or late adulthood, you'll find our sessions to be a secure base from which to venture out and try new ways of getting your work needs met. I am an MFTI and a clinical associate in psychoanalytic training, not a career counselor.

Changing careers or embarking on a career path after college can be both exciting and daunting. The challenges include finding a career that is satisfying, learning how to operate in a new social environment, identifying areas within ones current career that are/are not working, becoming comfortable asking for more and tolerating periods of uncertainty. Sometimes none of these are clear and that's where therapy can help. We may also work to identify workplace conflict and insecurity or creative blocks.

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.

Career satisfaction is an intrinsic part of living a fulfilling and meaningful life. Human happiness is multifaceted, and career satisfaction is an integral part of feeling happy. I help my clients to identify their career goals and aspirations. We spend so many of our waking hours working and if we are not satisfied at work then it sets us up for a dull and humdrum existence. You deserve more than that! I will work closely with you to explore and identify how you can improve your career life. As changes begin to take shape your career satisfaction will improve.
