Denver Career Counseling:
Let's Get To Work.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Career counseling is for people on the path of self-discovery, as well as those who are seeking to achieve at the highest level of their potential.
What has brought you to explore career counseling? Maybe you know what you want to do, but need support in getting from where you are now to where you'd like to be. Maybe you have only a vague sense of what you want to be doing — just know for sure that you don't like the career you currently have. Or maybe you find yourself hitting an inner wall that keeps you from advancing in your career. Perhaps you are great at what you do, but are struggling with your professional relationships.
Our expert career counselors can help you with all of the above, and much more.
Our clients come to us for career counseling at many different points on their path to success. The best place to start is exactly where you are right now, because the changes you make today will bloom into the life you'll have in the future.
Effective, thoughtful career counseling provides you with clarity and direction about the specific actions to take today, that will help you create the successful (and satisfying) future you desire.
Discover Your Passion. Live Your Dream.
Our expert Career Counseling helps you:
- Get clear about your personal values, your passion, and your life dreams.
- Identify your personality, strengths, and opportunities for growth through a variety of aptitude and interest inventories (including the Myers-Briggs) and self discovery exercises.

Just knowing that you were going to ask me about my homework made me do it. I did things with you that I couldn't do on my own.
WEEKS after seeing Dr Bobby I achieved my goal of finding a career that suits me perfectly. I’m still in disbelief of how quickly it all happened.
