Finding your 'career path' can happen at any age. At twenty or fifty. Talking with a therapist who can help you discover what you love....what you're good at...your skills...experience, etc. can be encouraging to enable you to follow your desire in what can often give you a lifetime of reward. 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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

Are you fulfilling your purpose or are you not living into your potential? Do you wake up thinking "I was made for this" when it comes to career or do you struggle to get motivated for what lies ahead. Career satisfaction is highly correlated with life-satisfaction. Careers matter beyond how we generate an income. Learn to unblock where you are being held back. Learn the skills essential to make that next career move. Develop leadership skills to grow your company. Identify places you or your company need to make changes for your health and well-being or that of your employees. When we are happy and feel cared for at work, our productivity increases and so does our life 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.
