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. I find doing this very rewarding in helping people find direction or meaning in their choices.

My work background before becoming a professional counselor was in the Staffing Industry, where I worked for many years as a Recruiter and helped find job openings for staffing companies as a sales manager as well. I have 25 years of experience in recruiting and sales in the marketplace, and have substantial experience teaching people how to conduct a full-scale job search, interviewing techniques, and how to implement and execute well thought-out and planned career transition strategies.
