More specifically, career counseling helps the client with planning, organization skills, addressing anxieties or worries about seeking a new position (or discussing a past job position), and role playing interviews. We will also focus on job inventories when needed to further focus on your strengths and values in a job position.

Career counseling first requires an understanding of who you are, what your dreams are and the pros and cons of you present approach. I will refer you for testing if we need the kind of information that only testing can provide, often from a guidance counselor or Psychologist. I find doing this very rewarding in helping people find direction or meaning in their choices.

Feeling trapped in a dead-end job? Sometimes it can be useful to understand how a job allows us to pursue interests outside of work, but for some people it is more important to identify new career paths that allow you to better express yourself as a person. I focus on helping people identify ways to improve their current work situation while exploring the possibility of making career changes.

Satisfaction with our environmental health - where we live, work & play - is one of the most important dimensions of life wellness. If we aren't happy or fulfilled with our careers or the location or company culture where we work then it is important to take action toward figuring out what exactly will make us happy because we typically spend 1/3 of the time in our day engaged in our careers. I meet people where they are at and seek to understand what is important to them & why. I utilize a career interest inventory to gather information about your unique personality and match that information to careers that may be more suitable to who you are and what you like to do.
