All too often, we end up in jobs without purpose that leave us feeling “stuck.” Many people find they don’t know how or why they ended up in their career and wonder if there could be more satisfaction in their professional life. Together, we will explore your values through both assessment and discussion and what makes work meaningful to you. From here, we can strategize and develop a plan using solution-focused techniques to get you “unstuck” and feeling more fulfilled and satisfied in your career.

Although my title is a Marriage and Family Therapist and not a Career Counselor I do provide support for clients that are exploring their life path which many times includes their career. My approach is to work with each client to formulate their own goals and to create a plan to get there. Together we work on identifying barriers and how mental health may play a part in reaching one's goals. Although I am not a career counselor, I can work with a client short term if that is what the desired outcome is.

Prior to becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked at IBM for 14 years. IBM started downsizing and I was faced with the decision of having to move out of state in order to keep my job with IBM. I chose to stay and pursue my passion to become a therapist, but it required going to school for 6 years while working full time. I have personally faced changing careers mid-life and have successfully navigated the obstacles that stood in my way. I would love to help you find your way as you are plotting your course. Please give me a call at 714-751-0888 so I can help you remove any barriers that stand in the way of you pursuing your dreams.

The careers we choose and do in life become an identity and sense of purpose that can either fulfill us or drown us in misery. When we work on increasing our individual power we are able to work towards that which fulfills us (mentally, physically, and emotionally) so that we aren't left working out of fear, scarcity, or insecurity. Instead, our career becomes a place of excitement, joy, and adventure.

Trying to find the right career can be a daunting, stressful endeavor. Using psychoanalytic techniques, I work with clients to establish an understanding of strengths and character that facilitates an ability to work toward making an informed and grounded choice of career.
