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.

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.

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.

Most frequently career counseling is utilized through high school guidance and college advisors, however, in private practice I have many opportunities to work with young adults trying to figure out what to do! This is a rewarding task because the path a young man or woman starts with can be life directing and life changing. Career is an important decision. Sometimes emotional or psychological blocks are hindering decisions about career or about moving forward all together. This is where counseling and sometimes therapy comes in to mediate any faulty thinking or negative beliefs about oneself that interferes with the process. This age group is one of my favorite.

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.

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.
