I don't do formal career counseling, but enjoy counseling entrepreneurs, business men and women, and performing artists. We would help you develop better assertiveness skills, clarify direction, improve motivation, encourage and guide you in negotiating higher salaries and rates, and cope with job/career crisis and change. I have worked with many people who lost their jobs in the current economic downturn. I also have a specialty working with performing artists to help them find satisfying jobs that allow them to pursue their art, and work with them on stage fright, creative blocks, and balancing relationship/work.

Career clarity tends to be achieved when one's profession is an expression of who they are. When this is not the case work feels too much like a task & too little like an experience with personal meaning. Such situations can feel very draining & distressing, as work is a major part of how we spend our time & relates deeply to our sense of identity. Therefore, helping a person understand who they really are & what they value is crucial to a lasting & satisfying career choice. Indeed, it is also vital to help people remove the barriers that they sometimes place in their own way. This is done though utilizing both insight and the establishment of new patterns that lead to new outcomes.

Struggling with job satisfaction, or questioning your career path is very difficult. Together we can work through the thoughts, feelings and pragmatic issues that are playing a role in your struggle and work towards finding a more satisfying direction or plan for your professional life. Sometimes treating anxiety or depression that underlies the career struggle is important preliminary work, and other times this doesn't apply. I invite you to schedule a consultation to get started.

I have written two books that cover various life areas, with a special focus on career in both. It's so important, for the simple reason that, well, we have to do it every day. I can work with you to identify where your natural talents will be best employed. And this often involves helping to navigate the day by day of a job and career, as far as overall strategy and interpersonal interactions, as well as structuring plans for job or career change.

While most career counselors love to give you capacity based profiles of what your talents and interests are for your best bet career choices, Grey Matters international believes that most people make predictably irrational decisions and then after making them learn way to make them fit into their identities using various types of rationalizations and strategies. We are able to assist folks in career counseling type settings by giving a deeper look at their decision making profile so they can better understand where the core frustration or desire is coming from in the world of work.

Earning a living is a major part of our lives; ideally it should be fulfilling as well as providing for material needs. If you are unhappy in your work life, there are many approaches and choices that can radically improve it. Sometimes it is a matter of altering attitude and motivation so that you exude energy not resignation. Transitioning to a new position of responsibility can call for flexibility in modifying work habits, and handling interpersonal relationships. Engineering a career change is more possible than most of us realize, but there are intimidating challenges. Recognizing when one is in a dead end is occasionally necessary; especially if you've invested years of effort.

Helping you find wholeness...

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016 | 212-655-9605

Traditional career counseling focuses on exploring career options and then pursuing them. When I work with clients, I prefer to see the work in a broader context. While we will be able to explore some of the traditionally addressed elements, I will also help you look at how your current work (or lack thereof) is affecting you, your relationships and your behaviors. Additionally, from a spiritual standpoint, I will help you explore the relationship between your work and your faith (especially your vocation). In looking at career and work in this broader way, you are more likely to find a place of wholeness and peace. I look forward to joining you on this journey.

Working on career issues is one of my specialties. I have experience working with a wide range of professional issues. These include: hitting a plateau in a current career and wanting to change into an entirely different field, having interpersonal issues at work that are creating difficulties and perhaps obstacles to further advancement, and feeling indecisive or overwhelmed with career decisions facing you during college and post-college, uncertain what the next step should be. My practice can be the ideal place to work through these and other professional issues.

We know being satisfied at work is not just about productivity and competency. You may be great at what you do. You may be very successful by every external metric. Or maybe you aren't motivated or aren't stimulated by what you do. You have to find a way to navigate your current position or find a new one that is satisfying and fulfulling. We help clients clarify their values and identify beliefs and behavioral patterns that have interfered with taking the risks necessary to be professionally fulfilled. Your work life is certainly about financial security, but it can do more than put food on the table. It can feed you intellectually, interpersonally, and emotionally.
