Therapy For Career Concerns

scenic view from top of mountainsHaving some trouble landing that job you would really like to have? Not getting promoted in a timely manner .. feeling stuck or used? Or perhaps you have been confused about the direction you would like your life’s work to take? Are you working in a career where you are not feeling gratified?

Whether you are just entering the job market or feel you would like to make a change in your career,
or need help sorting out your options or dealing with present difficulties at work, you might find it beneficial to talk with a therapist to help you sort things out. You may feel confused or overwhelmed when you think of your next move or problems you are facing currently, and it may feel like there is more to it than what friendly advice from your relations can provide. But the help of an impartial source such as a therapist can help you think things through objectively , with clarity, and more in line with your own real self.

Getting in touch with our true self leads us toward fulfilling engagement in the world. Too often we were taught attitudes toward career, achievement, or strategies for genuine self expression that were thwarted in one way or another. This can leave us less than deserving or unsure of our true passions and how to get what we want and need. A therapist can help you see the forest for the trees, hone in on your wishes, desires, strengths, as well as your fears in taking your next step.

We can work together to bear witness to your past and practice new ways of being in the world that promote confidence, power, and accomplishment toward your goals.
