Life happens. Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation where a change of employment may be necessary. Whether it is an expected transition or the result of unforeseen circumstances, change is difficult and can cause stress related illness. We can assist with making the transition less stressful. Life can be fulfilling and balanced, relationships can be honest and satisfying. Old wounds can heal, self-control can be gained, happiness can be experienced and personal change is attainable. Invest in yourself and be the person you want to be.

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.

My work background before becoming a professional counselor was in the Staffing Industry, where I worked for many years as a Recruiter and helped find job openings for staffing companies as a sales manager as well. I have 25 years of experience in recruiting and sales in the marketplace, and have substantial experience teaching people how to conduct a full-scale job search, interviewing techniques, and how to implement and execute well thought-out and planned career transition strategies. I can prepare excellent resumes, cover letters and teach you keys to landing that plum job you want by enacting strategies and techniques that only a handful of people use.

Definition of the problem and setting goals is the first step in career counseling. I provide support and objectivity. I would work with you on identifying source of job dissatisfaction, identify personal strengths, help with job interview skills, work with self esteem issues that may affect career, explore time management skills, and teach conflict resolution skills. You will probably spend more time at your job during your working years than any other place, so career counseling is an important area to explore.

When people hear career counseling, they often think of someone who will help you with finding a job. 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.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

Finding or changing a career is more about your self-image than anything else. Ask me. I changed careers in my 50’s. “What do you want to do?” is only the first question. How do you want to live is the important question. Let me use my personal experience to help you through the fears and self-doubts that come with making a major change in your life. I can tell you this: if you are waiting until you have no doubts, you will wait forever. By the way, if you are retired or planning retirement, that is a career change. It was fun getting up every morning with nothing on the agenda, for, what, six months? Then you got up thinking about what the rest of your life was about. Come explore this.

I work with many young adults who are emerging into adulthood without having yet found their passion and plan for life. I love working with clients in this part of their journey to help them discover their strengths and use those strengths to help them decide which step to take next. Transitioning into adulthood isn't easy and it always helps to have someone at your side.

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.

Understanding ones qualities and personality is one key to developing a plan that will result in a satisfying career. Many times clients work to work instead of finding what makes them tick and what creates purpose and meaning in life. Clients settle far to often and become dissatisfied and begin to develope a negative self-concept, which leads to more dissatisfaction.
