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.

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.

What would you really like to do with your time? Work takes up so much of our week, finding something you would love to do with all of that time would make such a difference. Sometimes what stops us from pursuing our dreams is a belief that it just isn't possible. Being free to explore and take just one step towards our dreams can make a world of difference. Let's explore the possibilities.

Life is short. Going to a job everyday that you hate is a good way to waste it. Knowing what job is right for you is not easy. You really need to look at who you are and what you want from life. Getting to know who you are, and not who your parents, spouse, or children think you are is one of life's most difficult challenges. What I love doing most is helping people discover who they really are. But, once you know who you are and what you want to do, you also need to develop a reasonable transition plan to get from here to there. This takes a grounded and realistic approach in additon to liberating your creative juices. Being both a visionary and an engineer, I can help you master both.

Work is an enormously important part of our lives. As is often said, we spend more hours of our lives at work than anywhere else. 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. I can help you explore your upbringing and education, your personal values, needs, and desires, along with ambitions and fears to help you find and succeed along a well-chosen professional path. This kind of support and guidance is just as important for someone just embarking on a career as it is for someone well along the path. It's never too late to take control of your direction.

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.

Do you feel stuck in a job that doesn't bring you joy? Are you doing work that doesn't allow you to shine?

Maybe it's time to reinvent yourself professionally. Depth psychotherapy can help you better understand who you are and what you have to contribute to the world. Together we can explore what brings you to life and how you can turn that passion into a career.

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.

We will focus on what you can do now to improve your attitude and your relationships to make work more enjoyable for you and the people around you. This works with customers, bosses and peers. We can also look at new skills you may want to get to expand into new roles and careers.

With the instability of today's economy and job market many people are finding themselves unexpectedly unemployed or stuck in jobs they don't like.

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)

I specialize in working with people who are suffering from Burn Out in their jobs. If you are noticing a heightened sense of cynicism, contempt, either/or thinking, and/or a loss of interest in improving your situation, these are all signs of burn out. You probably have an idea of what you "should" do from blogs or well meaning friends but working up the hope or energy to take any of these steps might feel futile or pointless. Together, we work on injecting energy into your life and creating healthy patterns so that you can reclaim your interest and passion in your work.

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.
