Career Counseling

Career counseling is designed to help people navigate choosing, changing, or embarking on an entirely new career journey. Career counseling is perfect for any individual, regardless of life stage. 

In career counseling, the therapist is trained to provide resources, discuss career development with an individual or company, and administer and interpret aptitude and personality interests assessments. 

When it comes to career counseling, some questions to consider include the following:

  • What am I good at?

  • What do I like to do?

  • What have others told me I’m good at?

  • What are my values (work, family, friends)?

  • What am I looking for in a career?

  • What qualifications do I have?

  • What work environment do I want to be in?


A career counselor can help you navigate these questions, as well as explore skills and strengths, education levels, and discover your aptitudes through tests and assessments, as well as self-discovery.  

When it comes to identifying a career move, having a career counselor can help you feel more certain about what direction you want to take. Branding yourself and your skills is the first step to making yourself shine in the business world.

A career counselor is different than a career coach in one main way: a career counselor can pair career exploration with therapy. As you might be experiencing, your career identity bleeds into your personal identity, too. Chances are when you feel lost and alone in your career, you also feel that way in your personal life. Understanding the meaning-making behind career moves and how they affect your personal identity is of upmost importance. Plus, identifying family systems and rhetoric around your career decisions, as well as any potential trauma and adverse childhood events has affected your career search and identity. 

Career counseling clients include those who are in high school or college and need help identifying their passions/interests/talent, those in the work force making a career change, people who feel empty and dissatisfying in their career, those in management roles looking to strengthen their team, or those prepping for retirement (AKA- what are you retiring TO?). 

Tools we may use in career counseling include:

  • Myers-Briggs

  • Enneagram

  • Values Assessment

  • Skills Assessment

  • Environment Preference Assessments
