Approach to Career Services
Most people instinctively know what work will be most rewarding for them, but they don’t always know how to get there. I will help you find your way. If you are looking for insightful, resourceful, and compassionate career development counseling, you’ve come to the right place.
I use an action-oriented approach to career management that puts you in control of your future. Together we will identify your unique needs, strengths, and career alternatives. Then we develop a plan that gives you the tools and confidence to achieve the work and life satisfaction you know is possible.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I consider the whole person, not just your career. My approach and experience allow me to consider personal growth and relationship issues as part of your career planning.
I find that an exploration of your daydreams and life experiences is often the most useful way to map an effective career plan. That said, I am certified in all of the major tests – Strong Interest Inventory, Campbell Interests and Skills Survey, and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator – and I can readily employ them if indicated.
My holistic, action-oriented approach will help you get hired or get ahead at any stage of your career development. You can shift your career toward the achievement and purpose you desire.
I was stuck in a job I didn’t like as a school administrator, knowing that something bigger was calling me from within. I had no idea what to do with my frustration.
I met with Dave and he led me out of my emotional mire, and set me on a step-by-step path toward a more positive future. Going to school to make a midlife career change was very hard work, I paid the fees, but today I am working as a nurse with 95% job satisfaction, and satisfied with myself and my possibilities for the future.
