Career Counseling

Are you in the right job? Are you as successful at work as you could be? Does the work you do bring you happiness and satisfaction? Do you want to make a career change but don’t know where to start? If you are asking yourself these or other questions about your professional life, you might benefit from career counseling. The focus of career counseling is usually on issues like career assessment, career changes, personal professional development and crisis management. A mental health professional specializing in career counseling can help you to identify what really matters to you personally and help you to make tough decisions. 

Local Experts in Career Counseling

Identifying your strengths and interests to pursue the roles where you will thrive.

I believe that clarifying what it is you are here to do is an important part of finding deep meaning and purpose in your life. I collaborate with you to explore your career interests and dreams and then create a practical plan for change with you, so that you are empowered to pursue your chosen work with passion and competence.

I have 20 years experience as a Human Resources professional and career counselor.

My professional expertise in office settings and holistic view of workplaces as unique systems lends me a unique perspective I use to support you as an individual, focusing on the goals and challenges that keep you true to yourself.

Very often people feel stuck in their work OR feel like their career has not even started. Being in a job that is a poor fit can be frustrating & even lead to depression. This impacts our personal life & relationships. Further, the rapid advancement in technology is creating new opportunities, but can seem overwhelming to know where to start. Lets put our heads together to see what is possible.

In addition to the career counseling training we're required to have as Nationally Certified Counselors/LPCs/LMHCs, I had a whole career in management consulting and HR before becoming a mental health counselor. I can definitely help with career and work related issues.

Finding the path you were meant to be on! What are your unique skills, strengths, and goals? What lights you up?

Perhaps you’re unhappy with your job, unsure about your career choices, or just looking for a change. We can collaborate to find what isn’t working about your current situation and explore steps towards a more rewarding career. This can range from practical work like job searching, resume building, or specific tests, to navigating the internal and interpersonal patterns that hold you back.

Uninspired by your career choices and wanting to become more fulfilled by your life\'s work? I help clients determine who they are and how this can fit into a financially successful option. I have years of experience from a Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For in addition to being a business owner and a deep curiosity and understanding of both traditional as well as entrepreneurial fields.

In my approach to career counseling, we will assess your interests, values, strengths and skills, but also your potential and resources to acquire new skills. From there, we explore options and develop strategies to take your career into the right direction. I will help you plan and realize practical steps to get you moving on that track.

Careers are integral to the identities of many people, while for others careers are simply means for attaining a happy life. Whether you’re developing your first career or looking to switch careers, I use a combination of assessment batteries and counseling to explore my clients’ goals, preferences, and aptitudes to identify their career path and develop a plan for achieving it.

Whether seeking to transition, advance, leave or re-launch a career, I take a deeper dive to assess how your skills, values, purpose, passions and interests intersect with your professional goals. We can strategize to make your current career more satisfying, change employers, start a business or think through the steps of an entire career change.

As life coach and career counselor I help clients to find their true vocation based on an inner calling away from merely outwardly motivated career choices. The key is that one\'s life work needs to be passionately supported from within.

I have over 15 years experience helping people figure out their 'calling' and helping them get to where they want to be.

If you want to talk with a geek (who also knows how to provide mental health counseling) about your issues, I\'m the therapist for you. Before I started the process of becoming a licensed clinical social worker, I had a twenty year computer carrier. This deep understanding of the technical world is present in my understanding of the world and I can help you with emotional and social issues.

I founded a nonprofit in Eugene, OR that focuses on developing individual social and job skills. I have been a Vocational/Education Counselor at PeaceHealth. I believe we all hold brilliance and with support, can discover and achieve our education and vocational goals.

I have up-to-date knowledge of career development techniques, information systems, and interest inventories and extensive training in helping clients sort out their true gifts and talents.

Career is a dynamic part of life. You may be wanting to transition, progress, start a new, develop skills and interests that interact with your career. We can work together and form a plan that empowers you!

Whether it is finding your vocation as an adolescent, navigating a mid-life career change, or bringing new life to your existing career, I can work with you to bring self-awareness and authenticity to your work in the world. Contemplative career counseling takes a whole-life perspective, allowing you to integrate your soul\'s expression with your livelihood.

I currently offer an online career course in collaboration with career coach Megan Leatherman that supports intuitive career growth for individuals undergoing career transitions.

We are at a wild time in the history of humanity when it comes to vocations and careers. The days of working in one job for 50 years and getting a gold watch are over. In the ever-changing modern world it can be confusing, unsettling, and even dehumanizing to find a way to make ends meet in a gig-economy. Working together, we can develop a vocational plan that makes sense for you!
