Freud, one of the first modern psychologists, said the two main tasks of adulthood were to work and to love. Human work is how we express our individual gifts into the world. It is something we can have mastery over and feel creative and fulfilled within. If this ideal isn’t a reality in your life, then counseling or coaching could be helpful.
People come to counseling for a range of reasons: exploring industries that fit their personality; preparing to ask for a promotion; changing careers; managing a difficult work relationship dynamic; developing a healthier approach to work; meeting goals; and much more. We spend a majority of our lives working, so it makes sense to spend some time figuring out how to make our work lives fit into our overall lives.

"I am really thankful to be working with Amie. The past 6 months have been really difficult for me. I was feeling really ashamed and hopeless, but each week I started to feel more confident that I could get through these tough times. Amie is encouraging, patient, and kind."
"I told my sister after my first counseling session that I felt a sense of calm being with Amie. I get so worked up in my mind, but Amie has such a calming presence. I was unsure about starting with a new counselor, but I am glad I did."
" I never feel like I am being judged. I know we have some different perspectives about life, but I always feel respected. Amie has helped me think through my responses to others. Sometimes I am not proud of how I handle things, but it feels really good to be honest and know that I’m not being rejected for my poor decisions."
"This was my first time coming to counseling and I was pretty nervous. But I am so glad I did! Amie helped me discover new strategies for dealing with my anger. I have gained new insight about my triggers and am able to respond differently than I did in the past. This has helped improve several important relationships in my life."
