Why Career Counseling or Coaching?

If you find yourself saying "My job doesn't interest me," "I don't know what I want to do with my career," "Should I go back to school?" "Can I start my own business?" or "I've been downsized; now what?" you are not alone. Most working individuals will go through a "career crisis" at some point during their life. A career counselor or coach can help you set and achieve career goals. Through this process you can better deal with the stress of today's workforce and maximize your potential.

Who Seeks Career Services?

I provide services to adolescents, adults, and corporations. Most clients share several common themes including lacking a sense of occupational fulfillment, being downsized, having little interest in their work, feeling underutilized, or simply looking for a new challenge.

What Happens in Career Counseling?

The first step is to know yourself. This can include your personality, interests, skills, and values. Clients are typically given career-based assessments during this phase. Second, career options are generated based on these characteristics. This includes specific jobs as well as job categories. The next step is to identify ways for clients to gather information about jobs and job categories that are of interest. Once you know yourself and your options, decisions can be made. As a licensed clinician, I am also able to help with personal barriers that might come into play such as self-doubt, anxiety, depression, or burnout.


There are many benefits to be gained from career counseling including increased satisfaction and productivity, finding meaning and purpose from your work, starting your own business, or establishing balance between work role and other life roles.


All services are confidential. For clients 18 and over, information will not be released to others such as your employer, school, doctor or family member without your consent (except under certain circumstances such as a clinical emergency). Confidentiality is imperative to me. To protect client privacy, I do not use testimonials from individual or corporate clients for marketing purposes.
