Sometimes, our beliefs about ourselves can get in the way of successfully achieving our own goals. Many people don't truly believe that they have the skills or character that it takes to reach their full potential. It is time to stop making excuses and do something about it. I will help you with your self-esteem, self-doubt, and whatever other blocks are preventing you from getting what you want.

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.

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.

There can be so much anxiety and fear when trying to chose a career, deciding whether to stay in a career, or struggling with challenges (and people) in your chosen career. My goal is to help you get grounded in your beliefs, values, and priorities so that you can feel confident about the choices you are making. I want to help you learn how to reduce burnout, stop second guessing yourself, and find excitement again.

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.

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.

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.

Oftentimes, people seek out career counseling because they are finding that their current job is not making them happy. From a Christian perspective, finding the work or "mission" God has designed you for is often called "finding your purpose" which we believe is the key to happiness in your work. In my work with Christians I strive to help people to find this purpose in their lives.

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.
