I believe silence creates a cycle. With empathic and collaborative therapy, we break the cycle. I help clients feel validated and supported passed anger, shame, and anxiety.

Choosing a career path is a big decision, and it's ok if you have trouble. Many colleges don't require you to declare a major until your sophomore or junior year, so I suggest completing your school's core requirements first as a way to explore your interests. As you try out different classes, think about your strengths, passions, and goals in life. Do some research on possible careers to get a better idea of the requirements, income, and environment you can expect. After you have considered your options, make the choice that best fits with your passions and values. It's not easy, but you can be confident you have made a good decision if you stay true to yourself.

Choosing a career path is a major decision, so it's perfectly fine to be unsure. I think you could keep an open mind to explore the various options and opportunities. At the same time, work hard to accomplish your daily tasks and take your current work seriously-- this effort never goes waste, but you'll discover your true interest when you work hard on something.

This is something that a lot of people struggle with. When I was deciding my career path, one of the first things I thought about was the aspects you want and don't want in a career. For example, do you want to work in an office? As well as other thing like for me I wanted to do a job that was rewarding and helped people. Also consider what careers your interests at school relate to. Are you more of a scientific person or are you more artistic? The most important thing is choosing an area that you enjoy.

Being indecisive about your career path is normal, so do not stress over it. Find some time to sit down. Try to make a list of all the careers that you can see yourself doing for a long term. A career that you are extremely passionate about. From there, start to do some research, so you can know what you are getting yourself into. Search on search engine. Find some YouTube videos. Some professionals has sometime of vlog that is titled "A day in a life of a (profession)", which can give you a glimpse how your life as (profession) would be. During your research, list out what you like and do not like about the careers or professions. Take your passion into account. Without passion, you will feel forced to go to work. You would not enjoy your work, which would be painful. This should give you a general idea of what your career will be.
