Are you in your 20's or 30's and feel stuck or lost in your career? Want to weigh your options or get ahead/change your career? Despite societal pressure to know exactly what you "should" do, many adults still struggle with this existential question. I want to help you better understand where you've come from and how you hope to experience your future. Do you want to feel valued, supported, and part of a team? Would you rather be independent and free with a job full of adventure? I'll help you feel clear about what you want & ultimately be guided by your values, interests, natural abilities and experience.
I hold a Master’s in Counselling Psychology and have years of experience guiding students, early and senior-level professionals from all walks of life through the practical and emotional parts of career decision-making. As a Career Counsellor & therapist, my first-hand experience with major career change complements my formal training in career psychology.
With the help of assessments and a step-by-step strategy, I provide a safe space for you to explore possibilities and help you find a life you love! I want to hear your story so we can identify your unique values, strengths, personal qualities and interests. We will consider reality factors and the whole you as a jumping off point for inspired action.
Êtes-vous dans la vingtaine ou trentaine et vous vous sentez bloqués ou perdus dans votre carrière? Vous ne savez toujours pas ce que vous voulez être lorsque vous êtes grands, même si vous l’êtes déjà? Vous n’êtes pas seuls : plusieurs adultes se questionnent toujours sur leur mission et leur plan de carrière.
Mon rôle est de vous accompagner dans une meilleure compréhension de votre cheminement : d’où vous êtes partis jusqu’où vous voulez aller. Que vous soyez plus attirés vers le travail d’équipe et la collaboration ou que vous préféreriez travailler seul, nous trouverons une carrière à votre image.
Avec l’aide d’outils d’évaluation et des discussions approfondies, nous naviguerons les éléments émotifs et pratiques de l’exploration de carrière. En identifiant les désirs et les forces qui vous sont uniques, étape par étape, nous établirons une stratégie qui vous mènera vers une carrière passionnante!
