This group of services includes in depth psychological assessment, targeted interpretation of your results, expert consultation, and career planning. I built this option to help my clients not only generate a reasonable list of possible careers, but also develop the structured self-insight to evaluate future career options as they come along.
Why is this important? This matters because our careers continue to move forward long after we complete the assessment process. A list of possible careers can help right now, but the self-insight to understand the kind of position you will succeed in can serve you for the rest of your working life.
This option is one of my favorites. We’ll take our first session to set the stage, talking in detail about your past jobs and patterns that you may have already noticed in your career so far. After you complete my vocational assessment battery, we’ll spend a couple sessions carefully unpacking the results on your career interests, personality, abilities, and values. This can be dense information, and it is worth it to take our time. After each session, you’ll have assigned external work to maintain our momentum. Finally, we’ll meet once more to pull it all together and talk about your next steps.
