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.

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.

Most of us spend at least 1/3 of their lives at work. Given this amount of time, finding a career that we enjoy can be very important. We are most alive and fulfilled when we are using our gifts and talents. Counseling can be the ideal place to explore and identify these. Furthermore, some clients prefer a coaching approach, processing any obstacles that arise on their career path.

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.

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.
