Career Counseling

Do you feel unfulfilled in your career? May be you are confused or undecided about a career direction. Perhaps you feel uncertain about navigating a career change, job loss or transition. If you are not happy in your current job, don’t delay taking the steps to discover what would bring more satisfaction in your work.

Career changes and job transitions can feel overwhelming, risky, and taking a lot of energy.  They can be also exciting, and promoting personal and professional growth in a new direction.

Career counseling is not about choosing occupations from a list of careers provided by an assessment or test. Your career is intertwined with your personal life, values, and priorities, and we take all that into an account. Clients focus on where they come from, where they are at the moment, and where they would like to be in the future.

Career-life issues we can assist with:

  • Career assessment to find direction, clarity and focus
  • Loss of passion or motivation / stress at work or school
  • Job search difficulties
  • Re-assess or renew career and life aspirations
  • Career Assessments: MBTI (Myers Briggs) and Holland Interest Inventory
  • Start-up Planning and Coaching
  • Staying resilient in work transitions
  • Career Counseling for Students

The career counseling process starts with getting in touch with your ideal self, your interests, accomplishments, and influential people in your life. Who do you really want to be? What are your passions and values? Each of these may evolve or change over time.

We can work together to clarify your goals, identify strengths, and research potential career options. The good news is that career counseling is strategic, solution-focused, and goal oriented.

My approach is holistic, and we can explore personal and professional issues that might be intertwined.  Career challenges often impact your personal life and relationships, and I understand you’re trying to balance your entire life.  Consider life coaching to help you explore barriers that might stand in the way to your success.
