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. It can also provide support as you pursue new paths or navigate through current ones. It can also be a safe environment for sharing interpersonal issues experienced at the workplace. 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.

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.

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.
