Career Counseling

Career counseling consists of several parts. First, it is the process of exploring and identifying your interests, values, abilities, strengths, aptitudes, personality and the world of work (current labor market information and trends) in order to determine a career path or life path. It is the time to address any personal, behavioral, social, educational and or work issues that may be undermining you from reaching your goals. Finally, it is an opportunity to get support when you are experiencing job loss, job stress, or other career transition issues.  In addressing these needs it will enable you to make an “informed” career decision.

Perhaps your current job doesn’t support your new career goal, or you are afraid to make the leap to doing something new and different or you are experiencing anxiety over going back to school for more training or maybe you are feeling worthless and depressed after being laid off.  Whatever it is, career counseling with a professionally trained counselor can help you better understand yourself and provide strategies for dealing effectively with issues that you would like to address. A reputable career counselor is able to work with you as a “whole person” and deal with all levels of your life.

My master’s level educational training in counseling in combination with my 25-plus years of professional experience in career counseling and assessment provide the skills and knowledge needed to work with you in a highly individualized way.

Career Coaching

Everyone can benefit from having their own personal cheerleader: someone to act as a “mentor” or “advisor” to help guide them towards attaining their goals. A coach can help you to define your goals, determine what has to occur in order for you to achieve those goals and then provide the support, encouragement, accountability, focus, and strategy to reach those goals.

Coaching can be short-ended or an on-going relationship. Either way it is a worthwhile investment in your life, your career and your personal growth.

How do you know if you require Career Counseling or Coaching?

A free consultation with a career counselor either by phone or in person (Austin, Texas) will help you determine which venue to choose. Then either an individual career counseling session or an individual coaching session will be required to gather pertinent information to determine the best tools and steps needed to get you moving towards your goals.
