Research has shown that people don't learn from people they don't like. Effective therapy evolves if the person seeking help likes the helper and experiences the helper as empathic, humble, competent, humorous and caring. Therapy is a respectful, mutually active endeavor between the helper and the patient in which the client feels comfortable, safe, and confident. Constructive therapy gives clients hope: that they will experience increasing well-being; that they will enhance their quality of life; that their social relationships will improve; and they will feel greater congruence between their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

Do you struggle to feel satisfied in your personal or professional life? If so, you're certainly not alone. In striving for personal and professional success, it’s easy to become disconnected from yourself and the relationships that matter most. As pressure and stress build, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, or struggling to remain present. I enjoy helping high-achieving students and working professionals face the demands of high-pressure environments without losing connection to themselves or the people they care about most.

I believe emotional pain is a signal we need to make changes. Symptoms of depression and anxiety, overfunctioning in relationships, over work, heavy reliance on substances or alcohol are all telling us something needs to shift. Familiar patterns of behavior may have served you in the past, but aren't working now. It can be hard to identify what's getting in the way of moving forward and to believe you can make necessary changes. I'd like to be a guide in helping you get 'unstuck' so that you can move more freely towards what is important to you.

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.
