I specialize in career counseling for teenagers through retirees.

I can assist you or your teen with thorough career assessment, career decision making and planning, career transition, job search, workplace conflict, burnout and work-life balance. I practice what I call "holistic career counseling," which means we look at personal, family, cultural, and spiritual influences on your career development.

Finding the right career means aligning one's work with who they are as a being. Therapy can help you discover your strengths, interests, priorities, and goals.

Together, we can explore where you are today and where you want to be in the future. We can create the steps to achieving the happiness and success you desire.

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Career Counselor

Adam Dorsay, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

1120 McKendrie Street, San Jose, California

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.
