Finding the RIGHT profession is a job in itself. By identifying strengths in our sessions, along with your passions, we'll focus you in a direction that fits you. While therapy can be often focused on strengths, our sessions can also problem-solve and adjust bad habits that interfere with achieving the positions that you want. I have experience working in higher education, and can help maneuver the ins and outs of college life.

Considering the recent years of economic struggle, many of us have been laid-off, fired or forced to re-evaluate our career. These stressful changes may lead to feelings of anxiety, stress, depression, inadequacy or unworthiness, which can leak into our relationships in unhealthy ways. Through counseling, I help my clients to learn healthy coping skills to alleviate these feelings and re-build their confidence. By focusing on their strengths and accomplishments, I help them to improve their relationship, realize their dreams and reach their goals.

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)

All too often, we end up in jobs without purpose that leave us feeling “stuck.” Many people find they don’t know how or why they ended up in their career and wonder if there could be more satisfaction in their professional life. Together, we will explore your values through both assessment and discussion and what makes work meaningful to you. From here, we can strategize and develop a plan using solution-focused techniques to get you “unstuck” and feeling more fulfilled and satisfied in your career.

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.

Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Santa Ana

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.
