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.

A large component of career choice is how we view ourselves and what we feel we can accomplish. So there's a big element of identity in there. I use Positive Psychology tools to assess the individual's strengths of character and what they view as important tools for success that they already have in their arsenal. From that perspective, we also look at those character strengths that could use a little further strengthening in order to best serve the individual reach their goals. Dreaming and imagining are big pieces of this process, so we also explore those in depth. I encourage realistic dreaming and identify fears and doubts that getting the way of dreaming and accomplishing dreams.

I have worked extensively in career counseling; having provided training and education to college campuses for 10+ years. What I have often encountered is blocks in decision making patterns, which leads to struggles in people finding their niche or correct direction to take as it relates to their career choices. Each individual encompasses a different set of assets that I can help to untangle the impasses they may have to choose an effective career path. We do this together by researching each person's strengths that will allow them to make decisions based on these findings, as well as environmental influences, i.e., marketing approaches, resume writing, and what will success strategies.

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.

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.

There are times when we may feel overwhelmed, lost, or uncertain about what direction to take. We may already be in a career, or thinking about switching fields. Career counseling helps you sort through your options, and worries to get clarity on what paths are available options for you. Re-centering yourself with your passion, decluttering your mind, letting go of stress, and finding ways in which to practice mindfulness and relaxation techniques helps relax the body and mind to help you find the path forward in your career.
