    Individually we want to be actively engaged in creating and constructing our lives and careers. We are also relational beings, we experience meaning and a sense of connection through collaboration and being engaged with others and the world around us. We are motivated to contribute to our families, to our work and the communities we are part of as this gives us an energized feeling of purpose and value. Ideally, we want our aspirations, values, passions, interests, personality, education and unique experiences to be aligned with our work lives. This alignment or congruence is experienced as "best fit", as personally authentic, more importantly it is the key to fulfillment and enriches our career path(s).

  • Career Transitions: Integrating Disappointment and Vulnerability into a Creative and Positive Path Forward

    05/23/2019

    Career transitions are very often difficult and highly stressful periods in one’s life. These periods are fraught with many conflicting feelings, experiences and expectations. Whether the transition has come about through job loss or is purposely embarked on because a professional path was unfulfilling or a wrong fit, finding a new professional landing pad is challenging both emotionally and practically.

    There are countless approaches and advice on practical steps to finding a job or choosing a career path but far less on helping a client acknowledge, work with and integrate the myriad of emotions that are present during times of transition and which can dictate the direction, relevance, helpfulness and success of career counseling.
