Difficulties in one’s work life can occur at any stage. When a person is just starting to look for a career path, trying to find the right job “fit” sometimes can be very challenging. Problems may arise during an established career when the person begins to feel less satisfied and wonders whether to consider finding a new career or putting renewed effort into making the existing career more acceptable.
Retirement poses still more challenges because it represents a significant transition in one’s life with many potential pitfalls as well as opportunities. Whatever the career stage, it often can be helpful to meet with a therapist to discuss the particular issues causing difficulties. If it’s a question of career fit, the clinician may recommend a vocational assessment to help guide the choice of career.
For other career-related issues, talking with an objective professional can often help to clarify the issues and the person’s feelings, thoughts and motivations related to the career situation in question. Our staff of licensed therapist and counselors can help you achieve solid footing as you travel the stepping stones of healthy change.
