I’m pleased to offer a variety of career counseling services through my practice, tailored to your specific goals. I have over 10-years of experience working as a counselor and administrator in University Personal and Career Counseling Center settings and have enjoyed successfully assisting adolescents, young adults and older adults with career planning. I also teach a 6-week course on Career Planning and Development at the University of North Florida.
Whether you are starting your career or making a career change, career counseling and consultation can make a tremendous difference when it comes to career preparedness and confidence.
Why should I try career counseling?
Because career counseling works! Choosing a job, career, and/or educational path can be a daunting task to undertake alone and without the valuable information and guidance that can be provided through career counseling. When working with me, we will identify and explore your interests, values, and personality, and match them to careers and work roles that you will enjoy!
Because the cost of not doing so may be much much greater. The average cost of college today is estimated to be between $60,000 and $80,000 if you attend a public 4-year institution. This cost increases significantly if you attend a private institution or graduate school. Career counseling can help you make an informed decision regarding your educational path and offer peace of mind that you are making a good educational investment. In fact, the financial investment you make in career counseling will cost you less than 2% of the average cost of one year of college tuition, making it a worthwhile investment.
Because you don’t want to have regrets about missed opportunities. Surveys have indicated that while reflecting back upon their college experiences, graduates often wish they took advantage of more opportunities to prepare themselves for their career. Here are some of the findings:
Because the cost of working in a job or for a company that you dislike, or worse hate, goes well beyond the dollar signs…it can negatively affect your mental and physical health, relationships, self-esteem, confidence, and in general, your quality of life. Research shows us that happier people are healthier people; they are less prone to develop illnesses and diseases, experience longer life expectancies, have healthier relationships and make increased occupational earnings over their lifetime.
