Therapist & Career Counselor
Are you not happy with your current life situation? Is your work atmosphere or perhaps your actual profession not what you had envisioned? Is anxiety overwhelming you to the point of procrastinating important life decisions? If any of these statements resonate with you, I want to help you cultivate your passion for work and life by elevating your personal strengths and enhancing your awareness of your interests and values through the counseling process. I will provide you with a nonjudgmental and calming atmosphere so that I can assist you in developing decision-making and coping strategies to reduce your anxiety, achieve your goals, and become your best self. I specialize in career counseling and anxiety management. My approach to counseling is informed by my research expertise in motivation and personal management strategies. I am also fluent in Spanish.
I have experience with administering and interpreting career assessments for professionals and students in choosing or changing careers. I also can assist you in developing the skills involved in searching and securing employment including resume writing and interview preparation. For those of you struggling with career indecision, I will help you identify the source of your indecision and provide you with information and strategies that will help you make a career choice that fits your personality and interests.
I also have personal experience with making a career change when I made the challenging decision to leave a career in the oil and gas industry to become a counselor and researcher.
I work with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and procrastination. Through personal counseling, we can work together to identify ways of thinking that may be playing a role in your struggles and preventing you from leading the life that you want. I can help you develop strategies to change your negative thought patterns into more positive ones. I will also enhance your awareness of appropriate therapeutic lifestyle changes (e.g., time in nature, relaxation and stress management) that can supplement the counseling process to help you work towards your personal goals.
