A significant factor in being happy in your life is being engaged in work that is meaningful, pleasurable and allows for your desired lifestyle (both in terms of time and money). Your career and how you spend your day is a significant part of your identity.
That said, many people struggle in the process of pursuing work that fulfills these criteria. Some people have found work that is financially lucrative but is soul numbing. Others struggle to make ends meet or job hop to remain stimulated.
I have found that a dysfunctional background of any type affects your career just as much as it affects your personal well being. Your career is not separate from you, it is typically what you do 5 days a week or more for most of the day. If you are not functioning at an optimal level of emotional success, your career will suffer as well. If you have a career that is draining you then it is one more problem you are faced with that may be overwhelming you.
As a psychologist who has worked with many hundreds of individuals who have wrestled with such concerns, I bring a complex understanding and an array of resources to help clients to get unstuck and find their way to happier personal and professional lives. Some of the resources that I use to help individuals include standardized career tests such as the Strong Interest Inventory, Career Leader, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, FIRO-B and others.
You will participate in a thorough career assessment that includes focused interviews and a review of the above behavioral style assessments. This assessment process helps you to define specific strategies for enhancing success in your current career or for making a carefully planned career change.
We then apply my own program, Dysfunction Interrupted, to the difficulties that you may be facing. Together we use this combination of tactics to get you on the right path to emotional and financial success.
While it is always wonderful to meet face-to-face if you are in New Hampshire or the Southwest Florida area, I also work successfully via telephone with people across the US and around the world. I would be happy to speak with you to see if I could be helpful to you in your process of finding a happier, more successful work life.
I collaborate with you to implement a powerful plan that helps you achieve greater happiness, success, and fulfillment in work.
