Career Counselor

Adam Dorsay, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Redwood City

Many of us will spend more time at our job than in any other single activity in our lives. It is important that we are feeling okay about the work we do, the people with whom we work (and our interactions with them), and that we return home with enough energy to enjoy life there as well. For many of us, this is not the case. I work with clients to assist them in either trying to make their current job work or get clear that it is time to make a change in employment so that they can find this important part of life fulfilling. I draw on my own experiences in corporate US and Japan, my training as a coach, as well as the counseling skills I have garnered through my education.

Do you feel stuck in a job that doesn't bring you joy? Are you doing work that doesn't allow you to shine?

Maybe it's time to reinvent yourself professionally. Depth psychotherapy can help you better understand who you are and what you have to contribute to the world. Together we can explore what brings you to life and how you can turn that passion into a career.

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.

A successful career contains more than money. One's emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing need to be challenged within a tolerable range to maintain a sustained level of interest, advancement, and growth. What we experience as limitation in career is related to how we see ourselves and how we perceive the world. Areas of stagnation and deadness within career are related to conscious and unconscious biases that prevent us from accessing what could be possible. I work collaboratively with professionals to identify these areas while providing new ways of relating to one's self and career.

I help people who work for others or in their own business explore ways to improve their focus on being successful and growing their skills. We can work on interpersonal relationships and ways you may be sabotaging your own success by being too stressed, demanding or invisible. We will focus on what you can do now to improve your attitude and your relationships to make work more enjoyable for you and the people around you. This works with customers, bosses and peers. We can also look at new skills you may want to get to expand into new roles and careers.

Do you want work that nourishes and inspires you to grow? Work that gives you more than a paycheck? A career that allows you to leverage your best strengths? Are you wondering what motivates you from deeply within? Starting a new career can feel so daunting. It is like stepping into the unknown. If you think of changing careers you may be scared that you have to start all over. I help you identify transferable skills that you can apply to your new career. Structured exercises between sessions can help you clarify your interests and strengths. We can also address insecurities and limiting beliefs that may hold you back from having the career you want.

Frustration with coworkers, your boss, and your work situation indicate the need for change. Talking to a therapist can help you figure out the direction you need to go to have a fulfilling, successful and lucrative career. I help clients guide themselves to change by following sparks of passion and joy. Therapy can give you an objective perspective on what you can change in your work situation and what you can't. Therapy can help you figure out what's important to you in your career and life.
