If you are trying to decide what you want to do with your life, you are not alone. On average, people change jobs at least 12 times. I will work with you to sort out your ambivalence, fears and help you get clarity on the direction you want to go. This therapy may be brief and solution-focused if this is your main goal. My specialty in this area is with women trying to determine if and when to get back in the work world, when they have been out due to being home raising children. This work is fun and energizing.

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.

It's been said that people have around three careers in one lifetime. But how do you know when it's time to switch paths? How do you know if you want to switch paths at all? You might need a career overhaul, a career tweak, or a career change. The uncertainty is daunting and exciting. "Will I need to go back to school?" "Will I have to take a pay cut?" "How can I continue to bring in income while I'm pursuing my goal?" I will help you identify your skill sets, identify and organize your need to haves and nice to haves, and figure out your next right step.

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.

I help people decide what they want to do with their lives, and make it happen! Over 10 years of experience as a psychologist has taught me the importance of our career choices. You may feel stuck in your current career or paralyzed at the thought of choosing one path over the other. You may have obtained your dream job, only to be struck with a nagging "impostor syndrome" that leaves you feeling anxious an unsure about your competence. The benefit of therapy is that you have someone to talk with, who has studied the experiences and beliefs that hold us back, as well as the ways to overcome them! I am happy to provide a free initial phone consultation to answer your questions. Call me today!

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)

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.

Knowing how you come across inter-personally can be a huge asset in advancing your career. Are you soft? Are you a yes-man? Do you come across as angry or controlling? Are there "communication skills" that stop you from getting that promotion? If so, we can use our relationship to explore how you come across. I can provide you honest and direct feedback that others are too uncomfortable to tell you. We can come up with a game-plan concerning how to come across the way you want to. It could involve merely practicing and being aware of how you come across and it could involve longer term therapy that gives you an enhanced sense of self so you come across with more confidence naturally.

Do you wake up thinking "I was made for this" when it comes to career or do you struggle to get motivated for what lies ahead. Career satisfaction is highly correlated with life-satisfaction. Careers matter beyond how we generate an income. Learn to unblock where you are being held back. Learn the skills essential to make that next career move. Develop leadership skills to grow your company. Identify places you or your company need to make changes for your health and well-being or that of your employees. When we are happy and feel cared for at work, our productivity increases and so does our life satisfaction.
