One of my practice expertise is working with young adults / adolescents / teens. Inevitably we will talk about what they want to do with their life. This leads to us discussing and exploring what careers they may be interested in. When I work with adolescents / teens I approach them more as a young adult then as a child. This allows them to formulate their own thoughts and possibilities. Having a good rapport with the therapist makes for great therapy. I have a special connection with adolescents / teens! Often, they enjoy coming to therapy. Therapy allows for self-reflection which is miracle growth for the young developing brain!

Your career is a major part of your life, taking up at least 40 hours (probably more) of each week, not to mention the effects on your social and personal life outside of work. Achieving career satisfaction and work/life balance is difficult. I can help you explore where you are on this spectrum of satisfaction and find out what is missing. Together we can develop a plan that sets you up for success, whether it's about changing careers/jobs, changing roles within your job, or changing something within yourself. Work doesn't have to be something you dread. It can be something you feel fulfilled by and inspired to be a part of.

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.

"What do I want to be when I grow up?" is a question we have all asked ourselves. Even well into adulthood we don't know for sure, or feel that perhaps we have chosen the wrong career path. Utilizing career interest and aptitude inventories, I assist people with exploring and discovering career paths that best suit them. I also provide guidance to people who are trying to settle into a career or experiencing challenges in their careers.

Whether you are a college student trying to decide on a major or an executive looking for some success coaching, we can help! Career counseling is an interesting combination of skills assessment, tool building, and dreaming with clients. Initially we will help you answer questions that will determine the course and direction of your life - What's your purpose? What legacy do you want to leave? How do you want to impact the world? What is your life's work going to be about? How can you take care of those you love? After you answer those questions, we help you build a toolbox of strategies and resources (resumes, cover letters, plans, organizational skills, networking) to get you there!
