Your 20s and 30s can be challenging in regards to career and relationships. You may enter a profession only to find that it doesn't suit your nature and interests. It's okay to change your course in seeking the right fit, your niche. Don't let society determine the rules for what is appropriate career exploration. Its okay to change your mind. Don't be afraid to test new waters. Lets explore those waters together so you don't drown in the wrong profession. If you are returning to the workforce after raising your children, I can help you regain confidence. I myself re-entered the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom for 11 years.

Finding your 'career path' can happen at any age. At twenty or fifty.

You will have an opportunity to look at "all of the parts" of yourself. No simply your academics or skills, but to dig deeper and find your passion for your life work.

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.

Oftentimes, people seek out career counseling because they are finding that their current job is not making them happy. From a Christian perspective, finding the work or "mission" God has designed you for is often called "finding your purpose" which we believe is the key to happiness in your work. In my work with Christians I strive to help people to find this purpose in their lives.

Work is an enormously important part of our lives. As is often said, we spend more hours of our lives at work than anywhere else. So making that work as good as it can be is vitally important to our health, sanity, and general well-being. Yet that, like so many things, can be easier said than done. I can help you explore your upbringing and education, your personal values, needs, and desires, along with ambitions and fears to help you find and succeed along a well-chosen professional path. This kind of support and guidance is just as important for someone just embarking on a career as it is for someone well along the path. It's never too late to take control of your direction.

Deciding on a career path is a daunting process. Not only are there more careers out there that we can even imagine but finding the one that suits your skills, lifestyle and personality can complicate things even matter. Whether you're considering a career choice for the first time or if you've come to a point in your life where you believe that your current path is no longer meeting your needs, it can be helpful to find someone who can help you sort through all of the elements of finding the direction for you. My approach to career counseling is to help you explore your skills, abilities, personality traits and life style preferences that may impact your career choice.

We have a specialized career re-entry program that we call BOSS. This stands for Budgeting, Occupation, Scheduling, and Sobriety. Most clients that come into treatment need to find jobs. For some, unemployment has been an ongoing struggle and a contributing factor to their addictions. Helping clients establish budgeting practices helps them learn how to save and prepare for their lives outside treatment. Occupational services such as job application training, mock interviews, and interview follow-up skills help them take the lead in their own future. Scheduling is something that many learn for the first time while in treatment, and practicing sobriety by attending meetings is important.

Prior to becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I worked at IBM for 14 years. IBM started downsizing and I was faced with the decision of having to move out of state in order to keep my job with IBM. I chose to stay and pursue my passion to become a therapist, but it required going to school for 6 years while working full time. I have personally faced changing careers mid-life and have successfully navigated the obstacles that stood in my way. I would love to help you find your way as you are plotting your course. Please give me a call at 714-751-0888 so I can help you remove any barriers that stand in the way of you pursuing your dreams.

A wise person once told me, "Find something you love to do and find someone to pay you to do it." But the reality is that many people find themselves in careers they don't enjoy or lose the career they did enjoy. Whether you are disatisfied with your career, dealing with work related stress, or wondering what you are going to do next, counseling can provide a framework for you to work through the dissonance in your work life and get on the path of meaningful fulfillment with regards to your work or career, regardless of what stage in your life you are at.

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)

Choosing a career or changing careers can be an extremely stressful time in a person's life. Talking with a therapist can help you sort through your feelings and give you tools to deal with the stresses you are under. This kind of open conversation can also assist you to understand what is most important to YOU, not the other people in your life and in your head. With this clarity, you'll be better able to chart the course that is most satisfactory for yourself and which will head you in the direction you truly want to go.
