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.

Work can be an enormous source of stress for many people. For some it's a feeling of anxiety to perform under unrealistic expectations, for others it's due to work place conflict or unhealthy work environments. For others it's a feeling that their job just isn't the right fit. The first 20 years of my career I worked in human resources and business consulting for large and small companies and I have 10 years of experience doing workplace counseling and executive coaching. I will help you get to the root cause of your stress and begin to identify changes you can make to improve your work life and lead a less stressful life going forward.

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. How would your life change if you were able to get the job you have always dreamed of?
