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.

Life is short. Going to a job everyday that you hate is a good way to waste it. Knowing what job is right for you is not easy. You really need to look at who you are and what you want from life. Getting to know who you are, and not who your parents, spouse, or children think you are is one of life's most difficult challenges. What I love doing most is helping people discover who they really are. But, once you know who you are and what you want to do, you also need to develop a reasonable transition plan to get from here to there. This takes a grounded and realistic approach in additon to liberating your creative juices. Being both a visionary and an engineer, I can help you master both.

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.

Knowing how you come across inter-personally can be a huge asset in advancing your career. Are you soft? Are you a yes-man? Do you come across as angry or controlling? Are there "communication skills" that stop you from getting that promotion? If so, we can use our relationship to explore how you come across. I can provide you honest and direct feedback that others are too uncomfortable to tell you. We can come up with a game-plan concerning how to come across the way you want to. It could involve merely practicing and being aware of how you come across and it could involve longer term therapy that gives you an enhanced sense of self so you come across with more confidence naturally.

What would you really like to do with your time? Work takes up so much of our week, finding something you would love to do with all of that time would make such a difference. Sometimes what stops us from pursuing our dreams is a belief that it just isn't possible. Being free to explore and take just one step towards our dreams can make a world of difference. Let's explore the possibilities.

With over 30 years of experience in Finance, Marketing, IT, Manufacturing, Operations and Management, I offer a practical approach to career counseling. Focusing on skills versus deficiencies has always proven to be successful and strengthening a "can do" attitude increases ones's worth in the marketplace. The rest is about persistence, working with people, peers and management and relationships. These are key to the most successful people. And then there is luck and timing, over which we have no control. Learning better communication skills, how to deal with negative bosses and co-workers and how to set boundaries in the workplace are additional skills that can be learned.

If you are trying to decide what you want to do with your life, you are not alone. On average, people change jobs at least 12 times. I will work with you to sort out your ambivalence, fears and help you get clarity on the direction you want to go. This therapy may be brief and solution-focused if this is your main goal. My specialty in this area is with women trying to determine if and when to get back in the work world, when they have been out due to being home raising children. This work is fun and energizing.

Most of us spend at least 1/3 of their lives at work. Given this amount of time, finding a career that we enjoy can be very important. We are most alive and fulfilled when we are using our gifts and talents. Counseling can be the ideal place to explore and identify these. Furthermore, some clients prefer a coaching approach, processing any obstacles that arise on their career path.

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.
