Dr. Mark Ackerman provides expert career executive coaching and counseling for career transitions
Changes in our work settings since the start of the covid pandemic have led to increased tele-work schedules. Nevertheless, work stress remains a significant complaint for many busy professionals who strive for improved work-life balance or struggle with work-from-home isolation issues. In addition, because the work environment is where different personalities, communication styles, and worldviews interact, things don’t always go smoothly. In fact, workplace bullying is on the rise and though statistics vary, some studies reveal that nearly half of all American workers have been affected by this problem, either as a target or as a witness to abusive behavior against a co-worker. Examples of common career and workplace complaints include: discrimination, dissatisfaction, wrongful termination, desire for career change.
How a Psychologist Can Help
Assessment of and counseling for work and career challenges can help you develop a better understanding of goodness of fit for your chosen career path and provides a neutral setting where individuals can learn to cope more effectively with work-related stressors and obtain guidance for achieving a more satisfying career trajectory. Counseling tends to work well when addressing workplace issues because talk therapy can effectively treat depression and anxiety that can stem from the work setting or an unsatisfying career. As a licensed psychologist I can also assist by offering psychological testing including vocational assessment to help guide you in planning a more productive and satisfying career. I have extensive experience providing fitness for duty evaluations. I specialize in working with legal and allied health professionals.
