The psychologists in our office have unique knowledge of and access to the newest state-of-the-art career assessment instruments. These tests are exhaustively researched, tested and proven. They make your decision in choosing a career much easier because they match your responses with those of the most successful people in various careers.

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.
