Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist

If you are trying to decide what you want to do with your life, you are not alone. On average, people change jobs at least 12 times. I will work with you to sort out your ambivalence, fears and help you get clarity on the direction you want to go. This therapy may be brief and solution-focused if this is your main goal. My specialty in this area is with women trying to determine if and when to get back in the work world, when they have been out due to being home raising children. This work is fun and energizing.

Over the years, many of my clients have felt lost and unsure as to their purpose in life. Many find themselves in jobs they are ill suited for and careers which cause them stress and anxiety. Together, we have worked to help them find a path towards fulfilling their purpose. For those who have already found themselves in their perfect chosen career, I help coach these clients to become assertive, diplomatic and professional when interacting with supervisors, colleagues and coworkers.

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.

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.

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I help people decide what they want to do with their lives, and make it happen! Over 10 years of experience as a psychologist has taught me the importance of our career choices. You may feel stuck in your current career or paralyzed at the thought of choosing one path over the other. You may have obtained your dream job, only to be struck with a nagging "impostor syndrome" that leaves you feeling anxious an unsure about your competence. The benefit of therapy is that you have someone to talk with, who has studied the experiences and beliefs that hold us back, as well as the ways to overcome them! I am happy to provide a free initial phone consultation to answer your questions. Call me today!

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Career Counselor

Zak Forrest, Zachary Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Richmond

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.

Career Counselor

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Within driving distance of Richmond

I've worked for many years in the corporate environment, first as CEO of a technology company and then as consultant and executive coach. There's excellent research on what skills will help you advance in your career, if you take time to learn them and apply them to the way you work. If you are struggling with work issues or want to plot out your next career move, I invite you to give me a call to talk about how we might work together.
