As a man who changed careers from engineering to psychotherapy in my early 30's, I have my own experience in uncovering and transitioning into an optimal career. Using that, as well as my 25 years as a psychotherapist, I believe I had an unique edge in supporting my clients in connecting to their life purpose and making it happen. Having a fulfilling, meaningful vocation is so critical to our wellbeing and you deserve the opportunity to make that happen, at any point in your life!

Many think of career counseling as focused conversations that help you figure out what kind of job will make you happy. For most people, choosing a career is a luxury. The single mom isn’t “realizing her potential” or “living her dreams” by working as a fry cook. But she is paying the bills; the hours are flexible; and she lots of time to spend with her kids. When it comes to making money, I am a realist. You may never get paid to play tennis, or make art, or build a sailboat. But if you know what gives you passion, purpose, and direction, you can choose a career path that leaves time and energy for the things you love.

Sometimes, our beliefs about ourselves can get in the way of successfully achieving our own goals. Many people don't truly believe that they have the skills or character that it takes to reach their full potential. It is time to stop making excuses and do something about it. I will help you with your self-esteem, self-doubt, and whatever other blocks are preventing you from getting what you want.

Together we can think through what it is you really want to do, and what viable possibilities the circumstances present, and where the two overlap. Whether you're in quarterlife, midlife, or late adulthood, you'll find our sessions to be a secure base from which to venture out and try new ways of getting your work needs met. I am an MFTI and a clinical associate in psychoanalytic training, not a career counselor.

Rising costs of gas, housing, food, insurance, and the high competition for available jobs is forcing many young people to spend their 20's still sharing their parent's home. I help non-college bound teens combine their life experience with their passion to develop a vision of a career they would enjoy. I help young adults who are considering returning to college brainstorm about next steps and develop an action plan.

How recent in history is the idea of a personal career? How universal is the importance of having a career or does it depend on where you live in the world? Here in the United States, we are so driven to succeed that it is difficult to stop and consider not only what it is that we are striving for and why, but also ask ourselves who's dreams are we chasing? Do the goals that we have established for ourselves reflect our personal ethics? Do we truly desire the things we are working so hard for? These are some of the questions that I will be asking you in order to help you begin to contemplate the impetus behind your actions and how it is connected to a larger context.

We spend the majority of our time at the workplace and so when we love our job, we have a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. When we either don't have one or don’t love the one we have, we struggle greatly. My approach to career counseling is simple. Let's figure out what factors are important to you in life. Is it structure? Is it flexibility? Do you prefer working with a team or by yourself? Do you like to be creative? Do you like working with people? Once we figure out who you are and what you need to feel fulfilled, we can then find a career that caters to those desires.

The work that I do with adult clients usually relates to a developmental life crises. We are always facing dilemmas and struggles that affect our mental health and well being. For many the work that we do in part defines who we are and how we feel about ourselves. The counseling that I provide in may practice relates to either: 1) developing a career plan/path from what has been previously established or 2) forging ahead in un-chartered territory to establish a different career/employment path. Your work or your profession needs to have meaning and you need to know what that meaning is all about.

Changing careers or embarking on a career path after college can be both exciting and daunting. The challenges include finding a career that is satisfying, learning how to operate in a new social environment, identifying areas within ones current career that are/are not working, becoming comfortable asking for more and tolerating periods of uncertainty. Sometimes none of these are clear and that's where therapy can help. We may also work to identify workplace conflict and insecurity or creative blocks.
