Rising costs of gas, housing, food, insurance, and the high competition for available jobs is forcing many young people to spend their 20's still sharing their parent's home. I help non-college bound teens combine their life experience with their passion to develop a vision of a career they would enjoy. I help young adults who are considering returning to college brainstorm about next steps and develop an action plan.

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.

As we develop we discover many interests, areas of strength, talents, and skills that allow us to eventually make a living. It has become fairly commonplace for adults in our society to become dissatisfied, bored, or challenged by a career that was at one time satisfying and rewarding. Many make career changes because of these personal changes or are forced to find a new career due to economic or social conditions. Psychotherapy can help you through exploring your personal strengths, challenges, interests, needs, and options - or it may help through work on managing anxieties, stresses, or emotions related to the work environment.

The work that I do with adult clients usually relates to a developmental life crises. We are always facing dilemmas and struggles that affect our mental health and well being. For many the work that we do in part defines who we are and how we feel about ourselves. The counseling that I provide in may practice relates to either: 1) developing a career plan/path from what has been previously established or 2) forging ahead in un-chartered territory to establish a different career/employment path. Your work or your profession needs to have meaning and you need to know what that meaning is all about.

A large component of career choice is how we view ourselves and what we feel we can accomplish. So there's a big element of identity in there. I use Positive Psychology tools to assess the individual's strengths of character and what they view as important tools for success that they already have in their arsenal. From that perspective, we also look at those character strengths that could use a little further strengthening in order to best serve the individual reach their goals. Dreaming and imagining are big pieces of this process, so we also explore those in depth. I encourage realistic dreaming and identify fears and doubts that getting the way of dreaming and accomplishing dreams.

We spend the majority of our time at the workplace and so when we love our job, we have a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. When we either don't have one or don’t love the one we have, we struggle greatly. My approach to career counseling is simple. Let's figure out what factors are important to you in life. Is it structure? Is it flexibility? Do you prefer working with a team or by yourself? Do you like to be creative? Do you like working with people? Once we figure out who you are and what you need to feel fulfilled, we can then find a career that caters to those desires.

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.
