Whether you're facing a career transition due to economic or organizational shifts, desire for growth and change, or life events, Cedarwood can help you create a strategy. Depending on your circumstances, your insurance or EAP may be used to cover session fees. Career transitions and job searches can be confusing, and if this is the case for you, a good career counselor will provide emotional support, work at a comfortable pace for you, and integrate your priorities into the process of exploring what is next for your career path. Working with a career counselor will help make the transition as smooth as possible, with results that are fulfilling for you. I can help you with:
Career Exploration at any stage of life from entering the job market to post-retirement.
Assessments such as the Strong Interest Inventory and Myers-Briggs.
Resumes and Cover Letters that engage employers and allow you the flexibility to alter as you need to.
Interviewing with confidence.
Networking Strategies that help you break the ice with professionals who can help you.
LinkedIn Profiles that present your professional accomplishments, experience, and skills to employers.
Negotiating for a higher starting salary.
Many people like their jobs but struggle with stagnation or communication issues in their workplace. Before looking for another job, consider asking for help in these areas:
Addressing workplace conflict and improving relationships.
Understanding communication styles and personality types.
Analyzing roadblocks to advancement.
Experiencing employment harassment and discrimination can have a painful impact on your psyche and career. If you have endured short or long-term mistreatment and have suffered to the point that your working life seems forever changed, consider trauma therapy, such as EMDR. Eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing is highly effective in releasing the negative emotions and beliefs associated with painful experiences, and can help you recover your natural health and confidence again. After undergoing EMDR treatment and vocational counseling, clients have returned to the workplace with renewed energy, optimism and wisdom.
The fee for career counseling is $105 per session, which includes session time, handouts, resources and an individualized strategic plan. At times, your EAP or health insurance may be used. A free consultation and estimate is provided over the phone. Please email for assistance.
