As a person who has had a variety of successful careers in sales and marketing before coming to the profession of psychotherapy, I have had a vast amount of employment experience to draw from and I know what it takes to do the things to prepare you for a new career or to do better in your current one. These include building self esteem and becoming clear on what it is you want to do and how you want to make a difference in the world. All my counseling techniques are utilized in this important area.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There are times when we may feel overwhelmed, lost, or uncertain about what direction to take. We may already be in a career, or thinking about switching fields. Career counseling helps you sort through your options, and worries to get clarity on what paths are available options for you. Re-centering yourself with your passion, decluttering your mind, letting go of stress, and finding ways in which to practice mindfulness and relaxation techniques helps relax the body and mind to help you find the path forward in your career.
