Most people will have very different multiple careers in their lives. This can be very confusing and frightening. We all want to make the right choices. We want to be happy in our work and make enough money to live the life style we desire. We want to make as few mistakes in our choices as possible. We will work to clear the clouds by getting closer to understanding our needs and desires. We will set action goals, identify targets, evaluate results and continue refining the process until we are satisfied with the results.

Unlike many other counselors, I have worked extensively in the corporate world and even own my own computer consulting business and counseling practice. I have over 25 years experience in the computer field and I am also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I not only understand personality fits for particular careers, but I also understand the politics of the corporate world. Furthermore, I understand the psychology of marketing yourself, which is a critical skill in terms of getting a job in this down economy.

Unemployment is high and few are satisfied at work, so finding a counselor to help a person discover their potential and find fulfillment in a career choice is essential if a person wants to experience true success. For those unemployed, career counseling may involve helping a person with interviewing techniques, resume formation, and communication skills. For a person experiencing difficulty at work, counseling may include boundary implementation, interpersonal interaction, and conflict resolution. Finding a fulfilling position is not easy, but with counseling the benefits of finding the right career choice can be realized.

If you're unhappy in your job/career, life can quickly lose meaning and become a drudgery. Counseling can help you identify professional strengths and point you in the right direction. You will learn to rule out the "bad fits" and learn ways to pursue the most appropriate career path for you based on your personality, what lends meaningful purpose to your life and what allows you to make your personal life a priority. Through insight oriented therapy and directive counseling, I can help you learn to run your career and stop your career from running you!

But ultimately your career decision is l like any other. It comes from knowing who you are: your strengths, weaknesses, your likes, dislikes and what you're good at. In treatment we discuss all aspects of these to assist you in developing your interests and ultimately choosing a career that is both fruitful and satisfying.

Deciding on a career path is a daunting process. Not only are there more careers out there that we can even imagine but finding the one that suits your skills, lifestyle and personality can complicate things even matter. Whether you're considering a career choice for the first time or if you've come to a point in your life where you believe that your current path is no longer meeting your needs, it can be helpful to find someone who can help you sort through all of the elements of finding the direction for you. My approach to career counseling is to help you explore your skills, abilities, personality traits and life style preferences that may impact your career choice.

In career counseling we talk. I work quickly and sharply, without fluff, to get right to the heart of cracking your career code. Whether you have just graduated, have made it through your first few years of working in the professional world, are returning to work, or miserable in your current line of work.

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.
