Career consultation is the process of exploring factors and resources that assist in career planning and/or development. Areas under consideration include your values, interests, and abilities. Consultants can incorporate information from the initial assessment, a variety of career assessments (e.g., MBTI, SII, VPI, SDS, and CAI), previous work history, goals/aspirations, and academic information in providing consultation services. Consultation sessions extend from one to three one-hour sessions, and they can be done in-person or by phone. Career consultation services are free. However, a nominal fee is assessed for all testing services.
Career counseling is the process of engaging in career development from a more holistic and comprehensive perspective. In addition to incorporating data from your values, interests, and abilities, the therapist can use family-of-origin, personality, intelligence, and/or achievement data to assist in the planning process. Therapy allows for a broad exploration of psychological influences that impact the career decision-making process. The initial appointment for a career counseling session is one-and-a-half hours and costs $25. In addition to the clinical interview, a screening tool is given during this initial appointment. Subsequent sessions last for 50-60 minutes and cost $20. A nominal fee is assessed for all testing services.
