A: Some of the questions people always ask when they are seeking a career consultant or career coach: Should I work for someone else or start my own business? What type of jobs should I look for? What type of work environment fits me best? What type of work environment should I avoid getting into? What type of people best suit me as my supervisors or my coworkers (if I get to choose)? Who should I partner with in business? Who could be my potential clients? I am ready to take my career to a new level, where do I start? I am not sure if my current job is right for me, how do I find out about that? Should I leave this job or stay for a while? I hate my current job but it pays well, what should I do? I am in college and do not know what major to pick… I want to do one thing and my parents want me to do another, which is better?I like the income and the social status of being a lawyer, a doctor or a surgeon, am I a good fit for that kind of a job? I got laid off and should I start my own business? I am a lawyer/ doctor/ accountant/ mechanic/ server/ whatever,  but deep down I want to be an artist/ teacher/psychologist/homemaker/whatever… what can I do about my desires?

Q: What type of people are not appropriate for the career counseling programs at your practice?

A: The Career Counseling and Coaching Programs at my practice may not be for everyone. These programs are NOT appropriate for people who are currently dealing with severe mental illnesses which impair their thinking, perceptions, daily activities and social interactions. For such individuals, psychiatric and social services will be much more appropriate and helpful. Such mental illnesses may include but not limited to Schizophrenia, bipolar, clinical depression with psychotic features, delusional disorder, etc.

A: Career counseling/coaching is NOT psychotherapy. In general,career coaches are not licensed psychotherapists. In the US, there is no requirement for career counselor, career coaches or life coaches to possess degrees or licenses.

Q: Can someone expect to obtain job referrals or placement, financial aid if they attend the career counseling programs?

A: No. Career counseling/coaching services do not include job referral, job placement or job search. Career counseling/coaching services do not involve business, financial, psychological, medical or legal consultation/advice. These programs do not guarantee a specific amount of money a person will make during or after the coaching program. Neither do these programs promise a person that he/she will get a specific job offer or opportunity.
