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.

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.

The approach that I use is to use current on line career tests/assesments available for people by integrating Myers-Briggs theory and levels of interests and passions when it comes to finding a proper career. As they take these tests and assessment, I then use a few books such as "Now, Discover your Strengths" as a way to help people integrate their gifts, talents, interests, passions and desires so that they feel that they can succeed in life.

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.

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.

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.

Are you starting down a path, or maybe interested in course correction? Either situation can be especially daunting and stressful. How do you get on a path that leads to professional satisfaction? What do you do when you find yourself a long way from what hoped and dreamed about? It can feel as if you're condemned to a life you never wanted: "How did I get here, and is there a way out? Is there any chance to pursue those ideas I still think about?" Together we explore these questions and possibilities.

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.

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.
