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.

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.

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.

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.
