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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The approach that I use is to use current on line career tests/assesments available for people by integrating Myers-Briggs theory and levels of interests and passions when it comes to finding a proper career. As they take these tests and assessment, I then use a few books such as "Now, Discover your Strengths" as a way to help people integrate their gifts, talents, interests, passions and desires so that they feel that they can succeed in life.
