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.

When doing Career Counseling with my clients I use my skills as a Life Coach. We explore roadblocks to success, review resumes, role-play the interviewing process and discuss what really brings one passion. It's important in today's market to be current, savvy, and to be able to have confidence in what one can offer a propsective employer. Questions to ask yourself--Where do I see myself in five years if I stay on this same career path? Do I like where it is leading? Do I find that I look forward to my work week? Or is your highlight your day off? Are you truly in a place where your passion and talents are being utilized? Am I making a difference?... Work is meant to be meaningful!

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.

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.
