I am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and I study psychological growth, posttraumatic stress, and depression. My clinical work is inspired by my research. Generally speaking, my work begins in a humanistic-existential orientation. I believe in the client's potential for growth. When I enter a treatment, I listen to the individual, relational, and cultural narratives I am told; to the layers in each narrative; to my own reactions. I focus on feelings, unfulfilled desires, maladaptive defenses, and unsatisfying means of relatedness with past and present others - all of which generate anxiety.

It is often said that life coaching closes the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Coaching is a unique relationship that addresses areas that are no longer satisfying: your career, your thoughts about yourself, your social life, health, and self confidence. What if you knew exactly what beliefs and habits you needed to create an extraordinary life? We'll work together to identify areas you want to change, so you learn how to challenge what is holding you back and to create plans to transition to that life.

Career Counseling Therapists

How do I know if I need career counseling?

Determining whether a career counselor is needed involves assessing one's current career and identifying what changes can be made to improve one's overall quality of life. In particular, feelings of loss of motivation, fatigue, anxiety, depression, procrastination, or ongoing levels of high stress can all be indicative of a need for career-related counseling. In addition, individuals changing jobs may want the decision-making support or self-reflection opportunities provided by a career counselor.

Who can benefit from career counseling?

Anyone can benefit from the self-reflection, skill development, and stress management techniques that career counseling can provide. However, individuals who are feeling overwhelmed or burnt out with their current job and individuals considering a major career change may particularly benefit from career counseling to improve their wellbeing. Additionally, individuals who are facing issues in their current job, such as coworker relationship challenges or not meeting performance goals, may benefit from the perspective that a career counselor can provide. College-age or young professionals may also uniquely benefit from career counseling as they make key decisions surrounding education and job training that will impact their career trajectory.

How long does career counseling typically last?

The length of career counseling can vary greatly depending on the needs of the individual and what type of support they are seeking. Career coaching or advising services—which serve clients in a specific, goal-oriented capacity—often last for a shorter duration and are sometimes only a single session or a few sessions in length. In contrast, career counseling as part of a more integrative therapeutic relationship with a counselor may last longer, particularly if the issues faced by the client are longstanding and/or more complex in nature; in such cases, individuals may expect therapy to last multiple months or longer.

How to prepare for career counseling?

Clients can prepare for career counseling sessions by outlining the specific topics they would like to address with the counselor, such as current job challenges or hopes for the future of their career. Compiling one's thoughts on such topics often requires reflection on one's career and future goals, which in itself can be beneficial for session preparation. Clients may also want to put together a list of questions they would like to ask the counselor, particularly if the career counselor they are seeing has particular expertise in a given career area. Conducting research into potential future jobs, training opportunities, or support resources in one's area may also help clients prepare for career counseling by providing them with a background of what resources are available in their area.
