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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
