It’s not unusual to begin resenting the question “So, what do you do?” when you are in the midst of asking yourself the same thing, or more importantly “What do you want to do?” In today’s society, a person has about 12 to 15 jobs in their lifetime. It is also more common than ever for people to jump careers. Figuring out what is the right path for you might seem like an overwhelming task, but entirely possible.

Some common reasons or signs that you might be ready for exploring a new career might be:

  • Dreading the work you have to do
  • Feeling like you have stopped growing within your career
  • Having changed jobs already but still disliking the work
  • No longer having goals or motivation for your current job or career
  • Sensing a lack of purpose
  • Daydreaming of other careers
  • No longer feeling challenged
  • Feeling like you have unused talents or potential
  • Withdrawing from colleagues
  • Feeling anxious, depressed, sad, confused or bored

This type of counseling would also be appropriate for someone who is just starting to figure out what they want to do, like a high school graduate or undecided college major.

We are excited to work with you as you explore your goals, what makes you excited, and how you want to grow. We can help you take an objective look at yourself and gain insight to what it is you want to do and how to gain your sense of purpose. There are so many emotions that can be involved with this type of decision and change, and so we are ready to support you with the tools that best suit your needs through the process.

Your time and energy are valuable, so don’t wait to start doing what you love. Let’s begin now, you can schedule a free 15 minute consultation with one of our clinicians now.
